I've been scouring YouTube for the SNL analogue to the Lee Judge cartoon of Obama doing everything.

The show I remember has Rick Moranis (Ghostbusters fame and more), host for one late-1980s Saturday Night Live, doing the camera work, writing dialogue on the fly, acting all parts in a skit, delivering babies backstage, aceing the opening monologue, and telling Lorne Michaels what to do. He does everything perfectly, but looks a little goofy.

Obama does the same sort of thing, at the presidential level, but looks unflappable.

Wish I could find the Moranis SNL footage!

When I think of TEA I think of "all the TEA in China."

So, I'm just wondering if the Chinese provided all the tea for the conservative Republican tea parties, since the Chinese DID provide hundreds of billions of dollars for Bush's wars and for the budget shortfalls caused by Bush's tax cuts for the wealthiest?

The "Cartoons" section of Froomkin's editorials is my favorite. I miss the old format because there are too often times that the separate editorials don't relate well enough to each other and rather than having one spot at the end to place a comment, one must comment on every separate section.

Besides, I live in the Pacific Time Zone, so when I log onto the Internet, Froomkin still hasn't posted that day's articles and this is well after noon PDT. Maybe Froomkin is getting burned out on "White House Watch"?
