20. They showed a panicked, smoking, swearing President Obama
calling from the WH at 3am to Hillary in facial cream, curlers, and pjs for advice on how to handle a crisis, oh and how to turn on the heat in the WH. They played it as a Hillary ad. Then cut to Hillary telling people to call the DNC, it's not to late to say they've changed their minds.

143. I have seen BO look panicked and you can bet he swears.
Unlike his staffer he hasn't swore in an interview. Yet. Stop thinking he's the saint he purports to be. He's still human with human frailties. You can bet he and that vile tempered wife of his exchange plenty of angry words over his purported womanizing.

53. When have you seen Obama panic or swear?
He has been the most poised candidate - where Hillary has gone through many different emotions because she has panicked that she would lose the election. In fact the SNL skit is an indication that she has panicked.

he doesn't mention in the acknowledgments of his latest book. At least, the only ones with a family member who ran for president.

Yeah, he's real tight with them, all right. :sarcasm:

She'd be there, in the dark, nicely dressed, necklace & all, with glasses on..just waiting for that call...


phone rings....one ring-y ding-y x 5 more..

she picks it up

and hears heavy breathing..."Hey baby, whatcha wearin' ?"

she yells :..BILL, goddammit get off the phone. you dialed the wrong number.. & I'm expecting an important call from an unimportant state

It is a Hillary ad,approved by her, obviously it's going to show things as SHE would see them. Kind of a play on how she distorts things...I liked it!

35. Does anyone still laugh at this. So lame. And you know Harball will run it 5 times...
next week. Really, SNL has not been funny in years.

60. The Skit Was A Direct Hit on Obama and a Nuanced Hit on Hillary
Which take on the skit do you think that the pundits will focus on? I'll give you one guess.

79. I didn't see it like that at all
I thought it was a direct hit at Hillary and how she portrays her "experience" and uses scare tactics in her ads. The scene with Obama was how SHE portrays him in the ad. Not how he actually is or would be. Remember the premise was that this was a Hillary ad.

and they're both so unbearably HOT!

42. Obama has to be able to take it
Part of being a high-profile politician is that people make fun of you. That's just the cost of doing business.

I voted for Obama, but he's in the public eye and he's fair game for shows like this.

51. Isn't It Sad
KO, Tweety and a dozen others are shilling for Obama, under the umbrella of "news" and "journalism"; one comedy show puts a pin through that hot air balloon and some people think they've got the high ground being pissed off.

59. But this wasn't an anti-Obama skit tonight
If anything it was an anti-Hillary skit. Portraying her "experience" completely over the top. Like Obama would have to call her to find out how to turn the heat on in the White House :-)

What that has to do with the ramblings of the poster I replied to though is a different story.

But so CUTE how you tried to imply it went over my head and stuff, you silly little thing you.

105. Yes he did. With another rotten borough of the 21st century.
You Obamatrons are correct when you assume that the SuperDs will be loath to contradict the will of the people. Problem is, the "pledged delegate" result will be so distant from the will of the people as to be laughably ridiculous.

That's why your "math" is nothing more than a bucket of warm spit. "Pledged delegates" won't guide the SuperDs -- popular vote will, even polls will, when it comes down to it.

To be 100% honest, I'm not worried at all about your guys' 8,000-total-vote victory in Wyoming today, I'm more worried about Rassmussen and Gallup. Mark my words: if Hillary wins PA (likely) and she leads in the Dem primary polls this summer, the SuperDs will go with Our Girl.

110. PA might, repeat might, be her fourth and last "comeback."
She may or may not win it, but the most she can get out of it is a veep spot, which seems increasingly unlikely considering the bridges she's burned.

No matter what is on the news part, the only part that is replayed is part of the opening monologue usually out of context depending on what spin the media is pushing so who knows how they want to play it for the next few days.
