1. Thanks for posting this...

and the other vids too! I watched them at the link you gave and I thought they were funny. Some of the jokes made me cringe a little but that is also a component of humor. You have to be able to laugh, sometimes inappropriately to balance out your angst. Otherwise it might fester into something terrible. And it helps you address your faults. My opinion, of course.

2. Thanks so much!

I actually enjoyed it a lot - I realize that it's a comedy show and I take a lot of the jokes with a grain of salt - the chief aim is to be funny, and he accomplishes that as well as anybody. And the thing that impressed me the most about this show was that it aired live, within an hour after the debate was actually over, so they would have had to really scramble to watch and digest everything that all the candidates said and then come up with appropriate jokes! Given that, I think they did a pretty amazing job!
