Was Bush as bad for political theatre as they say Obama will be for political comedy?

A commentary in today's Guardian (UK) asserts that theatre-makers' antipathy to W made for some mighty uninteresting political theatre over the past eight years, including the best known play of the bunch, Stuff Happens.

Of course, the flip side is that many others believe the high points of political comedy experienced during the Bush years (e.g. The Daily Show, Colbert Report and SNL) will not be seen again during the Obama White House.

What do you think?
