I have a bad feeling about how SNL is going to play this....


To appear "fair", I can see them parodying Obama badly.


I hope I am wrong... but they will do a debate skit and I am hoping they hammer Romney and Lehrer, but I fear they will "set a narrative" about Obama that we won't like.


They creamed Sarah Palin in '08... and if they want to, they'll do it to the President too.

2. Who cares? It is a COMEDY show and if you are afraid they will sway voters, wow..

I Loved the Palin bits, but they did not sway my opinion of her, I let Palin sway my opinion of her.
not pardoies of her from SNL.

4. I think they should have Big Bird as the moderator...

Then Rmoney can say that the first thing he'll do is fire him...Big bird can come back with "fuck you man" (bleeped out of course)

10. Let's not totally lose our minds over this. I don't think SNL has much influence

on the voting public.

16. actually i think SNL and other comedy shows DO have some influence

and many times they are what we have to depend on to call out the whore media.

19. If people decide who to vote for based on SNL we're already screwed.

We may as well just lie down. The Daily Show, Colbert... maybe. SNL? Please.

11. Well frankly, Romney's actions, looks, twitches, quirks,

 

Are all much more ripe for parody than Obama's calm demeanor.

12. It won't matter, but...

Obama didn't give them much to work with, whereas Romney's hyperactive blinking act certainly did.

22. Every politician deserves some from time to time.

 

If you are too thin skinned to take some ribbing you should look for another line of work, besides the tone of the OP makes it look like SNL is supposed to do nothing that might hurt Obama's chances, like its a TV channel's job is to help a candidate.

17. SNL goes with extremes...

So if they do the debate, what will that mean. Mitt Romney as a fast talking used car salesman and Obama as a sedate college professor. However they do it...wouldn't make Romney look good.
