An interesting question posed by On The Media: how do you satirize Obama and Clinton without veering into territory that might be labeled a racist or misogynist? They talked to editorial cartoonist Nick Anderson about reactions to his caricatures and professor Elaine Miller about the way Geraldine Ferraro was depicted in editorial cartoons in 1984, when she was Walter Mondale’s running mate on the Democratic ticket.
After holding auditions, Seth Meyers told OTM that Saturday Night Live went with Fred Armisen as their Obama (he said Maya Rudolph was their emergency option). Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune wonders if they couldn’t have tapped a black person for that role.
(Also: Guest host Tina Fey kinda sorta maybe endorsed Hillary Clinton on Weekend Update.)
