Chris Rock was on Larry King Live this weekend. It was pretty hilarious. And boy, could we use a little humor looking at our sitch right about now. Note Rock’s impressive bi-partisanship in the second passage.

Here’s a few of the jokes.

KING: Has the financial crisis affected you?

ROCK: Larry, I drove a cab over here tonight. When it’s over, I’m going to try to pick up some more fares. I’m losing everything, Larry.

KING: Really downtrodden?

ROCK: Yes, it’s real bad.

KING: Have HBO paid you already?

ROCK: They have paid me, but the money is worthless now. Haven’t you heard? Your money’s worth nothing.

KING: You must be … proud that at this stage in our history a black man is running for president on a major ticket.

ROCK: Um, you know what? I’m proud Barack Obama’s running for president. You know? If it was Flavor Flav, would I be proud? No. I don’t support Barack Obama because he’s black.

KING: I said just as a proud feeling. That’s normal.

And also:

ROCK: I introduced Obama at the Apollo Theater not too long ago. I think Obama would be great. I mean, just look the big thing right now is the economy. And people are going broke. And here: The choice isn’t Republican or Democrat. The choice is you got a guy that’s worth $150 million with 12 houses against a guy who’s worth a million dollars with one house.

KING: Well —

ROCK: The guy with one house really cares about losing a house, because he is homeless. The other guy can lose five houses and still got a bunch of houses. Does this make any sense? Am I the only one that sees this?

KING: It’s unique way of …

ROCK: I’m just saying, John McCain could lose half his houses.

KING: You got a point.

ROCK: And sleep well.
