    Does she have a point or is it too PC?
    Yes, and yes, IMO. I didn't see the skit, but I did notice that Mayor Bloomberg's signer does some very dramatic signing -- I think she intends it to be amusing. However, I think that making fun of languages is not in style, these days. It's not politically correct. It used to be okay. Thinking back, I can recall Sid Caesar doing pseudo-German nonsense, and various comedians doing Yiddish accents, Spanish, Indian English (Peter Sellars in The Party).

    Here's Sid Caesar doing comic French, German(?), and Japanese: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBLM16fQ1es.
