WaPo : Dissent will not be tolerated

Saturday night live did an opening skit making light of Obama's executive action on immigration.
So in the tradition of repressive regimes the Washington Post rides to the rescue of the Obamessiah.

SNL skit suggests Obama’s immigration executive action is unconstitutional
The cold open got the basic explanation of what the difference is between a law and executive order right. And SNL also is correct that more Americans, even if they support comprehensive immigration reform, don't believe Obama should do it by fiat.
As to whether the executive action is unconstitutional? That's a matter of debate, of course. Some House Republicans think so and may add a complaint to a suit they are planning to file challenging Obama's executive actions on his health-care law.
One Obama backer who also supports a comprehensive overhaul of immigration laws says the action may be impeachable, as "by constitutional design, impeachment for 'treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors' is a political accusation."~snip~
Maybe I missed it but I don't remember WaPo coming along when SNL  criticized  GWB during one of their skits....but I could be wrong.

It was a funny bit but the real story here should be how, in this case, a supposed member of the press got their lapdog on when a comedy program makes light of the actions of dear leader.

Besides I don't know what they're worried about. I mean it's not like anyone has ever taken an SNL comedy skit seriously.
