Sometimes comedy, even if the subject is political, is exactly that and no more. Comedy. Something designed to make us smile. maybe, laugh. This is one of those cases.

Produced by a comedy site called 23/6, this comedy video condenses CNN’s news show The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer into one minute. The site does this to many shows, including Fox’s O’Reilly Factor, regularly The Situation Room, and much much more. Amongst the many episodes of The Situation Room that they do this to was the July 28 episode with the Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani.

The part with PM YRG starts at the 20 second mark and it comes out looking quite hilarious.

Those making these videos, the purpose is humor and if anything the target of the humor is the US media and US politicians; so, as you view this please remember its comedy and no more.

    Actually its better if your ambassadors and spokesperson speak in a language and tone that is familiar to the viewers in the West, it helps in the viewers linking themselves to who they are seeing. this is why the israeli ambassador to the UN always speaks in a near-american accent, and uses expressions that americans use, he is subtly telling americans “look I am like you, while these palestinians are scary and strange foreigners”.

    As humor this is very well done. And as the rest of the clip shows this can be done to anyone.

    But some of the other comments show that maybe some readers do not have any sense of humor and only know how to insult. Too bad for them.
