Yes, it's possible to make fun of Obama; liberals just don't want to do it

Isn't this just special? SNL apparently wrote a skit making fun of Obama's spiking the football over killing Osama bin Laden for their opening last night, but they scrapped it for a skit to make fun of Fox and Friends.
In the skit, President Obama addresses Americans soon after the first anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden — and he makes sure to remind viewers that all credit for the raid on the terrorist leader’s compound belongs to him.

“I hope you had a safe and joyous first anniversary of his killing,” the president, portrayed by Fred Armisen, begins.

“Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to be at home this year, as I had to fly to Afghanistan, to remind President Karzai that, exactly one year ago, we killed Osama bin Laden, and that the decision to do so was a gutsy one,” the president continues. “And was mine.”

The president then outlines what gifts are appropriate on the anniversaries of “Killing Osama bin Laden Day,” and reminds his audience that “heavy drinking, and Killing Osama bin Laden Day, are never a good combination.”
Daily Caller has the entire script of the skit. Some comedians think that it's just easier to make fun of Republicans because comedians are liberals and they find conservatives inherently funnier than liberals. And I'll fully admit that the GOP primaries have had their full share of ludicrous moments and characters who deserved ridicule. But so does Obama. Conservatives have no problem finding ways to make fun of him. And now SNL had a legitimate skit ridiculing Obama and they decided to punt and make fun of Fox News. How unsurprising.
