Unfortunately, the joke is on us!

"Is Obama Becoming a Joke?" comments on the "jokes" the media is now finding in BHO's first 8+ months in office.

David Paul Kuhn of RealClearPolitics summarizes the SNL performances that are now feeding on BHO, as well as other current comedians performances, and gives an interesting explanation of why, as well as a brief history of Presidential "joking".

His last paragraph is insightful:

"As Garry Trudeau, of "Doonesbury" fame, told one reporter, "For something to be funny, the audience has to be in a position to sense the truth of it." And SNL's lampoon of Obama was funny."
