Number one, did these same people protest when Rosie O'Donnell

did her little bit of imitation Chinese? If not, then shut the hell up?

As to the crap that inspired this post:
"I want an apology at the very least," said New York Assemblywoman Grace Meng, a Queens Democrat. "Making fun of any country's leader is just very disrespectful for someone who says he is a proud American."
Madam, I'm a proud American, too; and I insult and make fun of communist dictators at every opportunity. For that matter, we have a long history of making fun of foreign leaders. So screw you.

I agree completely.

Now, I'll say it's bad form to mock allies, and rude to mock actual democratic leaders of same, especially (unless they've actually done some specific mock-worthy action).

But non-allies, despots, dictators?

Fair game, open season, no limit on the mockery.

(That said, it's not-very-classy to mock Hu for "being Chinese", rather than mocking him for being an authoritarian bastard.

Just like the problem with Hitler wasn't that he was a German, and the problem with the Soviets wasn't that they were from Russia.)
