Reactions to Obama being Between Two Ferns

Stephen Colbert looks at the concerns expressed by Fox News that president Obama appearing with Zach Galifianakis on a web comedy show demeans the presidency. In their weird little minds, starting illegal wars, torturing people, engaging in a vast global spying program, waging cyberwars and the like do not harm the presidency but appearing on a show widely watched by young people (over 13 million people have so far seen the 6:30-minute clip) to promote his health care plan is somehow hugely damaging.

    Let’s see — whats the one thing that would make sure young people who don’t like Zach Galifianakis turn into the show? Oh, that’s right. Tell them that it shouldn’t be seen. Check. Who did Obama have to pay off for them to play into his hands like that?
