Where were you the day political satire died? I was at home watching the inauguration, of course.
I saw it all go down. I watched President Obama address both America and the world with such purpose, integrity and humility that one thing became abundantly clear: he killed satire in cold blood.
With Clinton’s philandering and Bush’s floundering, the past 16 years have been an all-you-can-eat buffet of political buffoonery for columnists, pundits and comedians alike.
But the electoral process giveth, and the electoral process taketh away.
On January 20th I watched a green helicopter fly away with my meal ticket.
