53. Get a Grip. People - It's Comedy
I can't believe all the nasty comments about a TV Comedy Show from the Obama folks.

Get a grip it's called comedy for a reason.

The Daily Show (which many posting here presumably like) has featured Hillary several times of late. She's one smart lady to figure out that it's a good idea to appear on these TV Comedy Shows that also make fun of her.

Hey, did Obama also appear on SNL as himself? Wasn't that funny? I don't recall a big uproar from the Hillary folks saying that SNL was pro-Obama.

Good satire always uses elements of reality, that's why it's called satire. Oh, boy, this SNL has really hit a nerve. I wonder why?

There's an excellent review at Second City called: "Between Barack and a Hard Place".

Bet there are people reading this that would also go nuts about this (2nd City is the home of many comedy giants). Gee, maybe they'd even picked in front of Second City, that is if they would actually see it. They get everyone: Obama, Hillary and even the Queen of America: Oprah !

It's a satire and it's comedy and it's fabulous.

Lighten up .
