Summarizing the Subtleties of the Sino-American Relationship (in 7 minutes)

Mildly offensive, quite amusing and unfortunately but substantially true (NBC embed):

From Daniel Drezner (FP): "Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live's cold open managed to summarize the subtleties of the Sino-American economic relationship in under seven minutes. Note that, although it appears that President Hu has the power because he is repeatedly berating Obama, the content of the skit suggests otherwise. Hu's repeated complaints that the United States is, er, "doing sex" to him demonstrates the very limited leverage China has over U.S. policy."
