(opening monologue, part I) David Alan Grier: Holy shit! Did we just elect Barack Obama President of the United States? I've got to be honest America, I didn't think you had it in you. That is a seven million vote T.K.O. You were not playing around, cause you just put a black man, with a brown name in the White House. Ain't this a bitch. President Barack Obama. Words so sweet they melt in your mouth. I think of all the stories my grandmother told me, growing up in the segregated south, marching with my family as a little boy with the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. I never thought I would live to see this day in my lifetime, it is incredible -- to have my own show, here on Comedy Central. I'm excited and the Obama thing, that's cool too.
(opening monologue, part II) David Alan Grier: I hate to stick my junk in the jello, but Barack, you cannot screw this up. This is a once in millennium opportunity, because if you drop the ball, every brother and sister from Memphis to Mozambique will go down faster than Lindsay Lohan at the WNBA All-Star Weekend. So, a few suggestions Barack. Ignore those parts of your black half that may make you want to, oh I don't know, smoke crack with a hooker in D.C. motel. Text message booty calls to your chief of staff, while having a stripper party at the Detroit mayoral mansion, or creating a show called House of Payne. While you're at it, ignore the parts of your white half that may make you want to lie to the country to start a war. Watch New Orleans drown, because you just don't give a damn, or use a fat white girl's cooter as a cigar holder. Barack Obama, please, I am begging you. Do not lose your damn mind!
