    Conservative stand-up comedian Evan Sayet says there is “no doubt” his fellow comics have taken it easy on President Barack Obama.

    “They’ve even admitted it themselves,” he told The Daily Caller.

    “Liberals don’t want to make fun of Obama because they feel that it will weaken him if they honestly point out his foibles and his shortcomings. The narrative is that Obama is sort of a god (in fact, Evan Thomas of Newsweek said exactly that.) Gods don’t have any flaws. Thus, if they point out a single flaw, they are entirely destroying the narrative.”

    Sayet, who has written for shows like “Politically Correct with Bill Maher” and “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” argues that conservatives are not as sensitive about their leaders.

    “Conservatives don’t think of their leaders as ‘messiahs’ (or mythical knights in the fictional kingdom of Camelot) and thus, poking fun at them is not sacrilegious,” he said. “To the modern liberal who looks to their leaders the way small children look to their parents, making fun of Obama is simply beyond them.”

    NPR's 'Wait, Wait, Don't Tell' doesn't hold back on him.
