    Showing they can dish it out but can't take it. They roll in the aisles when he mocks Obama but pulled the plug on the mike when he mocked Republican candidates

    Impersonator mocks Obama, Gingrich at GOP forum - USATODAY.com

    The Republican Leadership Conference turned the podium over to impersonator Reggie Brown, who drew raucous applause from the GOP's supporters when he projected lewd photos of Rep. Anthony Weiner, the New York Democrat who just resigned after the furor over his sexually charged online dalliances with a former porn actress and other women.

    Brown later played up the mass exodus of advisers to candidate Newt Gingrich's campaign and said Gingrich's supporters "are dropping faster than Anthony Weiner's pants."

    The audience grew more uncomfortable when Brown turned to the candidates who are looking to make Obama a one-term president.

    The impersonator took a shot at former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, saying Pawlenty missed the conference because "he's having his foot surgically removed from his mouth."

    "Don't worry: it's covered under Obamneycare. Along with spinal transplants," Brown said.

    Pawlenty has struggled this week after previewing his criticism of former Gov. Mitt Romney's health care overhaul in Massachusetts that was a model for Democrats' national plan. Pawlenty first called it "Obamneycare," a hybrid of "Romneycare" and "Obamacare." But when given the opportunity to use the term while sharing the stage with Romney during a debate Monday night in New Hampshire, he balked.

    Pawlenty later said it was a mistake not to offer a stronger criticism.

    The impersonator joked about Romney's Mormon faith and about polygamy, and Rep. Michele Bachmann's tea party support.

    Organizers then cut off Brown's microphone and turned on music. He was shown off the stage.

    I loved the night Colbert hosted the press club dinner.


    It showed just how out of touch with reality the right leadship is.

    You're right. It was funny stuff. However, if he was hired to work a RLC event, he perhaps should have aimed his humor gun at the Dems exclusively.

    What he did was the political equivilant of telling Dead Baby jokes at a Pro-Life Convention.

    Dead Baby jokes would kill at a Pro-Choice Convention.

    they just cant take self examination.

    Its why they are usually wrong on nearly every issue.

    they shield themselves from criticism and in turn never truely self examine

    Sounds like this guy is a fool. Anyone in that sort of business needs to understand their audience and who is signing their check. You don't complain about the food or managament of a bar while you're on stage doing a comedy act there. It's likely to get you tossed out without a return gig and without a check. Basic common sense and logic.
