Should you have any doubts about Saturday night’s opening skit on Saturday Night Live being damaging to the President, you need look no further than the Washington Post, which felt the need to fact check the skit. Liberals are in an uproar squealing like stuck pigs. Their own network, NBC, dared ridicule the President’s overreach. Back in February, SNL’s executive producer, Lorne Michaels, said liberals | Read More »
The ‘You won’t believe what SNL did in this skit about Executive Orders!’ Sunday Open Thread.
No, really, you won’t. Trust me on this: it’s like it’s from an alternate universe, or something. You’ll keep waiting for them to take a slap at Republicans because we’re unhappy about using executive orders in this fashion, but they never do. It’s almost unsettling. Open thread.

The Trillion Dollar President’s Latest Gaffe
From ABC NEWS: “President Obama told ABC News’ Charles Gibson in an interview that if Congress does not pass health care legislation that will bring down costs, the federal government “will go bankrupt.” I see, we need to spend $2.5 trillion on a government take-over of health care — or the U.S. will go bankrupt? Uh, huh. It is like the skit from Saturday Night | Read More »

Looks like somebody struck a chord…
Apparently all of the bad comments regarding the NBC pull of the SNL skit off the internet hit a nerve. They’ve reposted the skit on the NBC website:http://www.nbc.com/SaturdayNightLive/video/clips/c-span-bailout/727521/?dst=nbc|widget|NBC%20Video&__source=nbc|widget|NBC%20Video
NBC Yanks SNL Skit From Internet To Help Democrats
The Saturday Night LIve skit lampooning the mortgage bailout has been yanked from the internet by NBC. GregInFla [mentioned this] (http://www.redstate.com/diaries/redstate/2008/oct/06/snl-bows-to-liberal-pressures-as-nbc-shows-i/) yesterday.The skit correctly pointed out that the Democrats blocked oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when President Bush and the Republicans warned them there was a problem coming.Likewise, the skit mocked Herbert and Marion Sandler and George Soros, three of the super rich | Read More »
The Saturday Night Live Bailout Clip.
Because Allahpundit’s right: there’s an audience for a full and frank discussion on this one.But, hey: keep the focus on this. Make McCain, Palin, and the rest of us reluctantly talk about how your Party got us into this mess, and how your instinctual first reaction to encountering a disgraced Fannie/Freddie executive is apparently to offer him or her a job. We don’t mind.We don’t | Read More »
Tell NBC what you think of Saturday Night Live
I do not watch NBC, CBS, or ABC, ever, except for NFL games. Today, I decided I’d ban NBC from my TV even for football. I didn’t see the Saturday Night Live skit where they joked about incest in Sarah Palin’s family but I heard about it today. In case you missed it, they cracked jokes about Todd Palin having sex with his daughters. I | Read More »
Franken: McCain’s a Lying Old Racist
Al Franken took time out from a busy Senate campaign for the opener to yesterday’s Saturday Night Live. He’s as original as ever. Franken again plays the racism card without base, and (get this) says McCain is OLD!I wonder why people don’t think Saturday Night Live is funny anymore?
And Now For Something Completely Different…
Just something off the beaten path, but a friend sent this to me on Facebook and I laughed so hard I cried.
