There will be many, many humor "missteps" during these Obama years. First of all, GWB was just such a treasure trove of jokes for stand-up comedians, late night show hosts, sit-com writers and the average Jane and Joe at the office water cooler. The jokes, as they say, wrote themselves.
But now all these folks will have to figure out how to joke about a President Obama without committing racial faux pas. My own humble suggestion is that we all turn down our being-offended meters a couple of notches. Otherwise we will all be in the doctor's office dealing with our pressure and our sugar behind a bunch of nonsense.
Of course, there will be those who use their "oops" humor pass to say what they really feel. Another humble opinion: it's not going to be conducive to try to figure out folks' intent.
At any rate: It's gonna be a looooong few years...
