doesn’t have the same claws for Obama that it had for Bush. Even when
Jon Stewart occasionally goes after Obama, it’s of the why do you have to be so awesome, Mr. President? variety. Hardy-har.
None of this is really surprising. Just disappointing.
“The morality police are at it again!” Comedy Central’s Stephen
Colbert declared on his show Tuesday night about reports that former

The faux right wing pundit said, “The vice president having his own

conspiracy — which suggests, entirely without tangible proof, that
President Barack Obama is not a natural-born U.S. citizen — Dobbs
