That explains it

I was puzzled at all the media buzz on both the local and national news about Will Ferrell's reprisal of his Dubya impersonation on SNL. I mean, as Bobbi mused:
"I can't believe they have the entire [GOP] clown car to make fun of and instead they trot out a retired guy who paints dogs."
And then it hit me: If you're a liberal, this hearkens you back to a time a decade and more ago, when you wore smaller jeans, had more hair, and were speaking Truth to Power in an attempt to bring down the Establishment. This was nostalgic comedy comfort food, chicken soup for the Democrat soul; the equivalent of my parents' generation lovingly dusting their Reagan commemorative collector plates.
