Making fun of Obama
For some reason, maybe out of fear that a bunch of white guys could be labeled racist, it’s been hard for mainstream media to make fun of Barack Obama.
"Saturday Night Live" and Jon Stewart have worked Obama over, and some others have thrown jabs, but nothing to the extent of what has befallen his presumed Republican presidential opponent, John McCain.
Well, on Friday Los Angeles Times columnist Joel Stein, a white guy, went all out on Obama, calling him a “nerd” and “three-quarters” gay, among other things.
It’s a knee-slapping read that takes tongue-in-cheek to a new level when talking about the Democratic candidate.
