Obama to Appear on \'Daily Show\' Next Week


When all else fails, make fun of self.

President Obama appears to be taking a page out of that age-old maxim. Either that or he's feeling confident about his next debate.

The president has agreed to be a guest on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart next Thursday - two days after the second debate between Mr. Obama and his Republican rival, Mitt Romney. It will be Mr. Obama's second appearance on the show since taking office.

No word yet on the topics, but it's a sure bet that Mr. Stewart will want to dissect Mr. Obama's debate performances. This is, after all, the same host who has been eviscerating Mr. Obama's Denver debate performance, the host who said Mr. Obama was so bad in the debate t hat Mr. Romney won even though he fired Big Bird. “Beloved children's character Big Bird! And the sad truth is Romney could have waterboarded Aladdin, put down Blue, deported Dora the Explorer, and still won walking away!”

If nothing else, Mr. Obama's appearance should at least give Mr. Stewart a chance to recycle all that, while the president presumably shows he can take a joke.
