Is America Ready for a Woman President?
Here we go again missing the point. They're not making fun of Cory, Deedee, if you bothered to watch the entire clip you'd see that they were actually criticizing the idiots like La Shawn Barber who insist that women are the weaker sex. If you bothered to listen you'd have heard Bee saying Aquino faced down dictators but that she's "still a woman." If you bothered to look at the other figures in the PerezHilton-type site she was browsing, you'd have seen other prominent women leaders. If you bothered to think about it, "slut" as applied to Cory is so inappropriate that it's funny in itself. If the "Desperate Housewives" thing taught us anything, it's that a joke has to have a ring of truth to hurt. Cory is many things (positive and negative) but a slut she ain't, which makes the thing absurd.
The trouble with satire is that in order to be really funny it needs to be subtle. And subtlety is something too trivial for sainted leaders' assistants to be bothered with.
