Laff riot UPDATE

Posted By on Thu, Sep 11, 2008 at 8:39 AM

The Huckster was a winner in that charity celebrity comedy competition last night in Washington.

This year, there were no themes that dominated quite the way Larry Craig's bathroom adventures did a year ago, though there were a few limp shots at Sarah Palin. (Barr: "Anybody know what the difference between a bulldog and a hockey mom is? The bulldog gets vetted." Huckabee on McCain: "I'm hurt he didn't even vet me. That's okay. He didn't vet Sarah Palin.") Khan won me over with his funny riff on how un-random those airport searches are when you are going through airports as a brown Muslim man.

UPDATE: Newsweek says James Kotecki of Politico was funnier, with a rap that included this verse:

Huck you won 8 months ago
And now you're here telling jokes at a comedy show

It's survival of the fittest I don't mean to be rude
But NOW do you believe in evolution dude?
