this SNL crap is getting old
3 weeks in a row, are they that biased for the New Yorker. Last week was bad enough on the eve of a major primary. Well it seems to me they"re trying to support Clinton.

10. You're right
I hadn't watched it except for the opening skit the last few weeks, because of the Obama/ Clinton sketches. Other than that i hadn't seen it years ...I should of kept it off. Nothing like the mid 70's.

12. Apparently, some people watch it fanatically enough
to let it control their emotional state.

29. me neither...
The Saturday Night Live I remember was Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Dan Akroyd etc., I don't even want to think how many years ago that was.

4. LOL. Sour grapes,much?
Maybe the fact that the show is based in NY has something to do with their support of Sen. Clinton?

:rofl:

9. It was a take on the 3am ad. It had Obama as the President calling Hillary at 3am asking what to do
She was in a facial mask and "talking him down". Then after that, she told him how to fix the heat in the white house.

24. Yeah, it was stupid, unfunny and hamfisted in its pro-Hillary bias
mix in a little subtlety.

11. It hasn't been funny since the Phil Hartman era
It hasn't been really funny since the Ackroyd-Belushi-Radner days.

14. I missed it - well, not really - I never watch it. What happened?
I seriously tuned in for the first time in 10 years last Saturday. Show sucked worse than i remembered. I'm watching Will & Grace reruns, they at least understand the premise of comedy.

19. the phone rings it's 3am
Clinton answers, It's President Obama. Hillary basically guides him through how to handle the country as well as how to repair the heating, while Obama freaks out and panics saying he can't handle the job.

26. The Greatest Offense
Certainly the previous 2 weeks have been biased towards Hillary. This one was ostenibly biased against Hillary. However, it did portray Obama as inexperienced, smoking, and crying, albeit through Hillary's eyes.

Anyway, who cares? The only thing I find offensive about these skits is that they're not funny.

27. They are desperate to be relevant again
After decades of Who Gives a Shit leading them in the ratings.

Sad too because they launched many a career and USED to be funny, like 20-35 years ago...

31. well gee, obama has been receiving 83% positive news stories
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 11:20 PM by BenDavid
from the msn and hrc less then 50%....Is that fair? Hell, some of the foolish things michelle obama has said has gone unreported by the whoremedia.

When someone comes out and claims that her husband can heal "the holes in the souls" of americans, I say that is getting a little to close to messianic.....I say if the press is going to report wrong the "fairy tale" that Bill said. If we did not have such a whoremedia they would report this "holes in the souls" and watch as the crowd spreads out and away from this man.....

33. well maybe because he runs a positive campaign
could that be it? Edwards has a much bigger complaint about coverage, along with others that were ignored.
