Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the annual WHCA Dinner this weekend, but, doggone it, he can’t seem to find anything funny to say about the president!

“It’s hard to make fun of Obama in general because he’s a cool character,” ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel, the “headliner” for this Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, told Reuters, insisting that “outside of his ears, there’s not a whole lot” to joke about.

Kimmel on Santorum, Palin and Cain:

* On former candidate Rick Santorum: “I am fascinated by Rick Santorum … and the array of things he’s fighting for. Why bring pornography into it? What does that have to do with running for the White House? You are losing the male vote basically by going against pornography.”

* On former candidate for vice president Sarah Palin: “Now she is stationed up in Alaska all the time, she doesn’t have a professional hair or makeup artist any more, she is starting to look like a mom on ‘Toddlers and Tiaras.’ Her hair looks like bees are doing it for her.”

* On his picks for Republican VP: “Herman Cain is a lot of fun and the pizza angle is an endless fountain of comedy. (Rapper) Flavor Flav would be great…Chris Christie, who seems to gain 10 pounds every time I see him, would be a great vice president.”

Fortunately, Big Hollywood editor-in-chief John Nolte recognized Jimmy’s plight for what it is and beseeched the Twitter community to offer its assistance.

    Jeez Kimmel. Just tell Obama you hope Rush Limbaugh’s kidneys fail. So everyone will love you.
    Jeez. Adam Carolla would never have said it’s hard to make fun of President Obama.
    You puss.
