It's too late to parodize

I hadn't actually watched the infamous SNL skit knocking the fawning press coverage of Obama. But I finally did, and what struck me most is how hard it is to do a parody of Obama, compared with Clinton or the media, both of whom are thoroughly skewered in the piece. I guess the piece plays favorably for HRC, which explains why they've been shopping it out to the press left and right. But my walk-away is: hmph; SNL can't really make fun of Obama very convincingly at all.

Or at least that particular actor can't.
