When you’ve lost Andy Borowitz….
Andy Borowitz writes satirical columns for The New Yorker. His point of view is reliably liberal.
Thus, it is noteworthy when he takes on President Obama:
President Obama used his weekly radio address on Saturday to reassure the American people that he has “played no role whatsoever” in the U.S. government over the past four years.
“Right now, many of you are angry at the government, and no one is angrier than I am,” he said. “Quite frankly, I am glad that I have had no involvement in such an organization.”
The President’s outrage only increased, he said, when he “recently became aware of a part of that government called the Department of Justice.”
“The more I learn about the activities of these individuals, the more certain I am that I would not want to be associated with them,” he said. “They sound like bad news.”
Obama should recall the immortal words of his guru, Saul Alinsky: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”
Obama might be able to weather Congressional investigations and attacks by pundits and commentators. How well will he hold up when he starts looking ridiculous to those who support him the most?
