Re: ‘The Rock Obama’


The skit featuring “The Rock Obama” on Saturday Night Live was funnier the first time (and seemed less eager to please the White House after the CNN-challenged no-achievements skit.) At least it suggested Rahm Emanuel liked partisan warfare.

But I was a little shocked that ripping off the arm of Sen. Mitch McConnell was something the crowd laughed at with gusto. If someone ripped off Obama’s arm in a sketch, would it be funny?
