No Laughing Matter (to some)

Remember when the media used to get all upset about comedy shows mocking president George W. Bush?  Neither do I.  The fact that they are now reacting angrily to a comedy sketch that got a few laughs at the expense of president Obama is…well, laughable.  CNN even fact-checked the SNL skit to point out that it was in some ways incorrect.  Really?  Remember when they did that in response to skits about Bush in order to protect him?  Me neither.

It seems to me to be demeaning to our current president.  The media are acting as if he cannot handle any kind of criticism, even harmless comedy skits.  Seriously, people?  Do you think he is that weak?
