The Democratic race continues. If Hillary ends up as the candidate, do you wonder if Obama will blame Saturday Night Live?

The show's critique of the media for being hard on her has been echoed many times in the mainstream press recently.

Candidates complain politics is now entertainment, but then they can't wait to appear on SNL and Jon Stewart.

Wake up and smell the ratings! Politics is entertaining-the handicapping, the horse race itself, the photogenic anchors and reporters (I like Bill Schneider's wisdom on the races, but I love to watch John King-he doesn't have to be saying anything).

It's about time that we get a little more real about the fact that in our skeptical, post ironic culture, entertainment is also politics.

What the heck is a "post ironic culture"?
