Audience members at the Republican Leadership Conference last weekend were perfectly happy to laugh at Obama impersonator Reggie Brown when he was aiming racially-themed barbs at President Obama and the First Lady. However, when the comedian began to fire verbal missiles at the Republican contenders for 2012, his mic was cut and he was quickly escorted from the stage.
On last night’s “Real Time with Bill Maher”, Maher brought on Brown to let him finish his act. We think the Republicans may have cut his mic because they realized that the second half of the routine was actually going to be funny.
