Nice… Oscar’s Host Cracks Joke About Lincoln Assassination (Video)

Nothing is off limits to these folks.
Oscar’s host Seth McFarlane cracked a joke about Abraham Lincoln’s assassination last night during the broadcast.
Even for Hollywood, this was in poor taste.
Via NewsBusters:

NewsBusters has the transcript:

SETH MACFARLANE: This is interesting, Daniel Day-Lewis not the first actor to be nominated for playing Lincoln. Raymond Massey portrayed him in 1940’s “Abe Lincoln In Illinois.” This is true. I would argue, however, that the actor who really got inside Lincoln’s head was John Wilkes Booth.
