Will a democratic president mean no more political satire?
NO! Absolutely, unequivically NO! All these recent blogs and news articles about how it would be difficult for the late night comedians (Stewart, Colbert et al) to make fun of Democrats is stupid. Think back to the 90s. They made fun of Clinton all the time. They currently make fun of Obama, Pelosi and Reid as well. It's nothing more than stupid thoughtless conjecture and takes the place of real news. Please stop this nonsense. The reason the Daily Show succeeds and the "Half Hour News Hour" (Foxnews' attempt at late night comedy) flopped so stupendously is because the Daily Show makes fun of everyone and the HHNH only made jokes about Democrats. They are skilled comedians and the day to day business of government is always going to contain the c-span clips that provide comedy. Just in case your mom was doing crystal meth when she was pregnant with you and you were going to cast a vote based on how funny Jon Stewart would be for the next 4 years, don't worry, he will be hilarious regardless, but President McCain will make puppies cry.
