Right Wing World's Faux Outrage Over Obama's Late Night Appearance

I am convinced that there is literally nothing that President Obama could do (or by ommission not do) to avoid the right-wing faux outrage machine. When I saw Obama on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, I was a) struck by how good Obama is at that sort of thing, b) marveled that such a thing would be impossible for Mitt Romney and c) knew that Right Wing World would go all wobbly over it.

Predictably, they did. It was beneath the dignity of the office they said (it wasn't). It wasn't funny they said (it was). I didn't need Lawrence O'Donnell to remind me about Richard Nixon on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, or Ronald Reagan's spot on the Dean Martin Roast. And even recent history had Obama's rivals, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, as was Obama himself. Dubya appeared in several different popular programs, notably American Idol.

So, get the stick out of your asses, Right Wing World! You're starting to go from having sketchy senses of humor to being completely humorless.
