What's so Damn Funny, Mr. President!

President "LL Cool O" thought your and my investment in the auto industry was so funny that he just couldn't stop laughing last night in his 60 Minutes interview. Here's the text of the apparently "hilarious" (at least to Obama) moment...

President Obama was on 60 Minutes last night, in a 20-minute segment mostly about the financial crisis and the Obama administration's plans for economic recovery. The interview was pretty serious and somber, until Obama tried to lighten things up. "The only thing less popular than putting money into banks is putting money into the auto industry," he joked.

And then Steve Kroft got angry. "You're sitting here and you are laughing about some of these problems....Are people going to say, He's sitting there making jokes. ... Explain your mood and laughter. Are you punch drunk?"

Here is the only available footage, so apologies in advance for the 60-second commercial. You'll also have to click on the gray bar at the bottom of the video to advance it to 13:25 minutes if you only want to view our "punch drunk" president...
