“Bush was a curse and a blessing for political comedy”

Barack Obama gives less comic material than his predecessor George W. Bush used to, complains well-known American comedienne Katie Halper.

“It was really a curse but also a blessing to have Bush in power for eight years because of the gift he kept on giving in terms of material. Not a day went by where you didn’t have something that Bush did or said that you could make fun of,” Halper told RT.
