Telling a joke - especially if the joke's on you - is difficult if you're a phony. Politicians traditionally can't tell jokes.
Sometimes they can laugh at jokes. Sort of. But can they tell them?
John Kerry couldn't tell a joke. A lot of politicians can only grin. They play such high stakes games they leave humour behind.
George W Bush tried to tell a joke. Many times. Mostly he flubbed his lines so people laughed at him, not with him.
Hillary can tell a joke. Like her husband. She pulled that April Fools bowling challenge back in the spring of 2008. And evidently had a good time of it on the airplane afterwards.
As of this weekend we know John McCain can tell a joke. Thanks to SNL we already learned Sarah Palin can tell a joke.
But can Joe Biden tell a joke? Don't get your hopes up. Can Barack Obama tell a joke? Click his picture above to see for yourself.
