    Sarah Silverman Wants to Be Effing Obama

    The Emmy's are right around the weekend, but it seems like Sarah Silverman's had enough of awards shows after winning a Creative Arts Emmy Saturday. Attending a soiree for Emmy-nom'd writers at the Skirball Center, the über-cute comedian told us she doesn't have plans to be at the Nokia Theatre on Sunday. "I'll probably watch it at home," she said. "What I like to do is put it on pause for a long time and then I can F.F. through all the riffraff." So, ya mean the whole show, right?

    And now that Jimmy Kimmel's gone and effing partner Matt Damon looks happily, boringly married and such, who's the next man she'd want notched on her bedpost?

    "Barack Obama, hands down," she said. "He's so ridiculously sexy. He's got that swimmer's body and he stands like Fred Astaire, ya know, slouchy but with incredibly great posture."

    And she was just getting started:

    Sounds a helluva lot better than bedding Michael Phelps, espesh with the backroom stories we've heard. So if your boy Barack and all the other election '08 politicians had their own TV show, what would it be like? "It's probably closest to that...What's that one called...Couple's Island? Temptation Island!"

    Well, congrats on your Creative Emmy win, by the way, babe, for best Music and Lyrics. Gonna split it with Matt Damon? "If he wants. I can't imagine he'll give a s--t about it. I'll slice it in half."

    And looks like bygones are bygones, since you thanked your ex Jimmy Kimmel for the win. Guess there are no hard feelings? "I don't think it would be appropriate not to thank him." Wow, 'member when Hilary Swank didn't even mention her husband Chad Lowe when she won her first Oscar? Seems even more awful a slight now compared with a gal who remembers to thank an ex-boyfriend.

    One more Q for the sassy Sare-bear: We adored your Brit bitchiness at the '07 VMAs, thought you were sadly missed from this year's shenanigans. Got any thoughts on Brit's comeback appearance now that she's cleaned up her act and her hair? Silver-hon just rolled her eyes: "I wish her the best." Crap, if we can't depend on you for a sarcastic quip, Sar, what is the world coming to?
