Unfortunately we live in a new era of speak no evil about the current administration. The enforcers of this new rule are the supposedly objective fourth estate, and there is no mercy shown if one of their own steps out of line...

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

During the Bush administration it was okay to make fun of the government. When Sarah Palin was running for V P, it was obligatory to take a shot at her. SNL was full of commentary until just after the Obama win.

Now the shoe is on the other foot and the Dems don't like it.

Too bad. Pelosi should take a chill pill.

Bad joke is a bad joke, no matter who makes it. One point of fact: Media Matters has never offered any "knee-slapping guffaws" over jokes about assassination, no matter who it was about.

But they did laugh about the halloween prank in California where they hung Palin in effigy. Bad taste and jsut as morally reprehensible as Feherty's jokes. Also, I'd look closely at some of the nasty things the Mathews and Olberman have said on MSNBC.

Amazing what liberals will accept for their opponents but frown on when it's about their own.

"a tub o' hot water?" .... "he's Irish, maybe they?ll give him a mulligan?" .... as an Irish-American I cannot tell you how offended I am! I demand at the very least a public apology from Ms. Mario and from the buffoons who run this web site.

Barring that, how about a pint and a shot of Bushmills?

About the most misleading statements here are those that suggest the current administration can't take a joke at its expense. Witness the President's performance at the recent Correspondents Dinner, where he riffed on himself, VP Biden, the misguided flight over NYC and so on. That's the refreshing thing about this administration--its openness and willingness to poke fun at itself. Feherty? He's a funny guy, but this joke was simply over the line. He knows it. So let's move on.

One can read articles in UK daily newspapers and letters from the public suggesting that every one of our politicians should be "hanged, drawn and quartered" and no-one would turn a hair. Obviously because no-one in their right mind would take it as a serious instigation. Any more than I take Feherty's comment as such.

Following Greg Couch's recent article (who he?), there were 1286 comments - I didn't read to the end but they were overwhelmingly in support of Feherty's comments, and out of 90,538 votes, 67% said do nothing, 21% fire him and 12% suspend.

Hope the good work he is doing for US troops will count in his favour.

One thing struck me quite forcibly, however. I know Feherty applied for US citizenship back in November (don't know if he has it yet), but NO-ONE suggested witholding it, withdrawing it, or kicking him out of US. That's impressive.

Tom Bedell... from your expressed view, it appears that you and possibly Kiel Christianson are constant viewers of Keith Olbermann on MSBNC. It's just like the left to divert the focus from the real issue (the president laughing at Wanda Sykes questionable skit) to something else (him poking fun at the VP). Nice try but most folks know what's going on.

I would not fault the US soldier.

Funny how quickly this story died a quiet death...writing from the fence, it is interesting how certain media figures remain untouchable.

Hey Jennifer

Paula Creamer won the U.S. open in 2010.

Michelle Wie -- did not.

The making of a champion? Hmm ...

I think it's refreshing for him to state his opinion. In a world with scripted media coverage he stands above the rest of the analysts.
