|"Heard the one about Sarah Palin and the....?"|
Reggie Brown is an impersonator of Barack Obama. Doppelganger might be more appropriate. He was booked to crack a few gags at a Republican shindig. The first joke went down well. That's because it was about Anthony Weiner, internet smut trafficker and newly resigned Democrat Congressman. But when the jokes hit home about the Republican candidates in next year's presidential election, they got all rigid with sanctimonious self-importance and turned his microphone off.
I'm following the booing of geese so to speak and it now appears that the Republican Party's higher echelons can't stand their geese being booed (with anodine jokes). Are they really fit for government if they have no sense of humour and have no sense of economic reality? Of course, I remove Ron Paul from this cabal, as he is very much aware of the economic perils and is often seen enjoying a joke. On that score, Republican supporting Americans know where their allegiance should lie.
