Why 'Between Two Ferns' Works

Why 'Between Two Ferns' Works: "As Obama defends, Galifianakis keeps mocking it, checking his watch and mumbling: "Is this what they mean by 'drones'?"
I'm not alone in thinking that's the best part of the interview. The reason it works--even when you know it's coming--is that we are not used to people criticizing Obama to his face. The media certainly don't do it, the Republicans barely do it, and when the president tells self-deprecating jokes, he's usually poking fun at just how great he really is. Obamacare really has been a disappointment, so the joke has quite a bit of sting to it."
