In a ceremony honoring 2009's World Champion NY Yankees, Obama went for a cheap laugh and got it. He said...
"It's been nine years since your last title -- which must have felt like eternity for Yankee fans. I think other teams would be just fine with a spell like that. The Cubs, for example."
According to the Chicago Tribune, this remark drew laughs from "players, coaches, members of his Cabinet and Congress and other guests." The Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908.
I ain't laughing.
