Saturday Night Live Offers a Funny and Scathing Assessment of the President's Accomplishments.

This is just a scathing bit of "satire" from Saturday Night Live - and it's important. It signifies that the media love affair that has shielded President Obama from scrutiny and criticism (among mainstream media outlets) is ending. Now that SNL has opened the floodgates, expect O'Brien, Letterman, Stewart and others to start bursting through. Until now, most comedians, especially John Stewart made real bad sycophantic jokes… “oh Mr. President your awesomeness is just so funny…” "Your feet must get wet from walking on water..." Something tells me we are about to enter a whole new phase… one that George W. Bush, Jimmy Carter, and Gerald Ford were quite familiar with, we'll have to see how team Obama handles it.
