Chris Rock told Larry King that he starts to feel sorry for Sarah Palin every time they let her talk for more than four minutes. Rock said, “I did more interviews today than Sarah Palin.”

Rock had recently been critical of Bill Clinton but defended him during the interview with Larry King. Rock said, “Bill Clinton’s our last great president. Let me get back to it. You know why Bill Clinton was the last great president? Because he was the last president we had that wasn’t a multi-millionaire coming in to the office. He made decisions like a normal person. And normal people benefited because of it. John McCain’s worth 100 million dollars. Barack Obama is the closest thing to a normal citizen in this election. ”

Chris Rock is a supporter of Barack Obama.

Partial transcript

KING: Didn’t you introduce Obama at a rally?

ROCK: I introduced Obama at the Apollo Theater not too long ago. I think Obama would be great. I mean, just look — the big thing right now is the economy. And people are going broke. And here’s — the choice isn’t Republican or Democrat. The choice is you got a guy that’s worth 150 million dollars with 12 houses against a guy who’s worth a million dollars with one house.

KING: Well –

ROCK: The guy with one house really cares about losing a house, because he is homeless. The other guy can lose five houses and still got a bunch of houses. Does this make any sense? Am I the only one that sees this?

KING: It’s unique way of — I guess, OK.

ROCK: I’m just saying, John McCain could lose half his houses.

KING: You got a point.
