UPDATE (Mar. 6, 2012):
Steve Bridges was found dead in his apartment on March 3, 2012. An autopsy will be performed to determine cause of death.
A hallmark of American democracy is our irreverence toward authority figures, including the president of the U.S.A. Every serving president has been lampooned, mimiced, and made the butt of every late-night comedian’s jokes. That’s the American way.
Steve Bridges is the comedian who impersonated George Bush on the Jay Leno Show. He has now started imitating Obama in prosthetic makeup and really does it well. In particular, Bridges has totally captured Skippy’s voice and his distinctive speech rhythm.
It is rumored that the White House has tried to put a stop to Bridges’ act because thin-skinned Skippy is deeply offended.
So do your share to keep the Pretender-In-Chief “deeply offended” by passing this around. There might also be some educational content value! 😉
H/t my friend Sol.
