It's OK To Laugh At Obama

So writes Byron York:

Television comedy writers fretted that audiences didn't want to hear anything even slightly negative about the Democratic nominee. The political press corps went nuts over a satirical New Yorker cover that wasn't even directed at Obama.

And this was about a man who made up his own pretend presidential seal and motto, Vero Possumus; a man who, upon securing the Democratic nomination, said, "I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal"; a man who has on a number of occasions seemed to forget that he is not, or at least not yet, the President of the United States, who has misstated the number of states in his own country, who has forgotten on which committees he serves in the U.S. Senate. Professional comedians -- and their audiences -- couldn't find anything funny about any of that?

The fact that the press corps doesn't seem to be able to recognize Senator Obama for the pompous buffoon that he is, is the biggest indicator how deep in the tank they are for him.

Letís assume, as I do that the masses will in fact elect Mr. Obama as our next president. Will we all be surprised by his inability to articulate a coherent thought at his first Q & A session with the press, or will they continue to give him a pass even then? Will ďAs I have always saidĒ followed by a reiteration of a talking point satisfy them? I would think after he is safely elected they will begin the process of revoking his deity status. Iíve never understood the logic behind it. I believe it was the same with Bill as well. It is the primary reason their credibility, and their ratings has sunk so low.
