"Saturday Night Live – the slayer of Sarah Palin – has turned its fire on President Obama, portraying him a do-nothing president," Gideon Rachman writes in the Financial Times, echoing Ross Douthat, who wrote Monday in his New York Times column of "the recent 'Saturday Night Live' sketch in which he was depicted boasting about a year's worth of nonaccomplishments." For those who are interested and missed it on television, a link to the Saturday Night Live video is here. The sketch features an actor portraying Mr. Obama saying that those who fear he is turning America into the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany are wrong. The character goes on: "When you look at my record it's very clear what I've done so far, and that is nothing. Nada." The sketch continues, "Almost one year and nothing to show for it." A checklist: "Close Guantanamo Bay, out of Iraq, improving Afghanistan, health care reform" -- all "not done." Another checklist: "Global warming, immigration reform, Gays in the military, limits on executive powers, tortue prosecutions" -- also all "not done." The sketch also notes that Mr. Obama has a majority in both houses of Congress. One bright spot: "The cash for clunkers program really stimulated the economy. Unfortunately it was the economy of Japan."
