Send in the Clowns

Has-been impressionist Rich Little, proving perhaps that he should go by the stage name Dick Little, or at the least Little Brains, emceed one of the Inaugural Balls. (Sorry for the redundancy of "has-been impressionist." Is there a lamer show biz creation? "Look, I can be almost like some other personality that really isn't important, either!") And according to the Washington Post he cracked up the crowd with this witty repartee, while imitating Ronald Reagan:

"You know, somebody asked me, 'Do you think the war on poverty is over?' I said, 'Yes, the poor lost.' "

That's why the Republicans win, folks. They know the poor are funny.
