I’m sorry, but is this Cuba, or Prague circa 1980? Since when is it OK for presidential candidates to come after comedians who make fun of them? Even Nixon went on Laugh-In for crying out loud.

This is no laughing matter for club owner Jamie Masada, a comedy guru who opened Laugh Factory more than three decades ago and has been instrumental in launching the careers of many famous comics. “They threatened me,” Masada told Judicial Watch. “I have received complains before but never a call like this, threatening to put me out of business if I don’t cut the video.”
