* I don't know if this really came from David Letterman's show, just got it as a forwarded mail. But I'm sure whoever wrote this is a Filipino who has a great sense of humor ... Being a Pinoy myself and knowing what the author is really talking about, I couldn't help but really laugh out loud at the grains of truth that some of the reasons mentioned. ;-)

TOP 10 REASONS WHY THERE COULDN'T BE A FILIPINO-AMERICAN US PRESIDENT
By David Letterman:

10. The White House is not big enough for in-laws and extended relatives.
9. There is not enough parking spaces at the white house for 2 Honda Civics, 2 Toyota Land Cruisers, 3 Toyota Corollas, Mercedes Benz, BMW (Big Mean Wife), and MPV (My Pinoy Van).
8. Dignitaries generally are intimidated by eating with fingers at state dinners.
7. There are too many dining rooms in the White House. Where will they put the Last Supper picture?
6. The White House walls is not big enough to hold a set of giant wooden spoon and fork.
5. Secret Service staff won't respond to "pssst...pssst".
4. Secret Service staff are uncomfortable driving the presidential car with a holy rosary hanging on the rear view mirror or having the statue of the Sto. Nino (baby Jesus) on the dash board.
3. No budget allocation to purchase karaoke machines in every White House room.
2. State dinners do not allow "take home".

And the number 1 reason why there couldn't be a Filipino-American US president is....

1. Air force one does not allow over weight balik-bayan boxes!
