SNL Mocks Obama With Just A Soupcon Of Anti-Semitism

It ends with this rather lame joke, apparently designed to epater les bourgeoisie but falling limp, as Saturday Night Live has done since about the time Michael O’Donoghue left the show around 1878 1978:

Question seven: Do you feel that Jews have too much influence on Wall Street and the media? Again all answers are confidential.

I think I know how President Obama’s former spiritual advisor would answer that one.
