You may have read the accounts about the tendency of "Saturday Night Live" producers to be pro-Hillary, as evidenced by donations to her campaign, and several skits portraying Obama as either media pampered or freaked out and incompetent. The candidate herself seemed to enjoy a kinship with the SNL cast, even appearing on the show alongside Amy Poehler, the actress who portrays her. Any bias (which the show's staffers vigorously denied,) could stem from the fact that the show originates from New York City -- purportedly Hillary's home base (if you're not counting Scranton, Chappaqua, Arkansas, Illinois and Washington D.C.) Well for now, the debate is moot, because it appears that SNL has jumped way off the bandwagon (or the producers are trying to prove they're really not HilBots...) This week's opening skit, the first in a while since SNL has been conveniently in hiatus as the news cycle turned grim for Senator Clinton, was what you call and old fashioned skewering. Cliffs Notes version: "I'm Hillary Clinton; I'm a sore loser and my supporters are racists." Watch:
This man claims to be a legendary basketball player... but is he a REAL American...?
So Republicans have finally chosen to fight Barack Obama on the basis of his policiesmiddle name. Good for them! So now, I think it is the patriotic duty of every REAL American to name and denounce the other subversives with curious, foreign-sounding names who continue to infiltrate our venerable American institutions, sowing the seeds of enemy infiltration and ... foreign sounding-ness... Here's a short list for Rush, Bill Cunningham and the folks in the Tennessee Republican Party to get started with (Up with America! Down with Hope!):
Kareen Abdul-Jabbar ... posing as a "basketball legend," but what's his REAL agenda...?
Mohammed Ali ... claims to be a legendary boxer ... but hello??? His name is "Mohammed..."
Rasheed Wallace ... He has infiltrated the Detroit Pistons ...what will he infiltrate next?
Hakeem Olajuwon ... suspiciously African NBA player. I'm thinking background check...
Mike Huckabee ... sure, he looks white, but what kind of name is "Huckabee"...?
Jordin Sparks ... sparks of WHAT??? Dirty bombs, maybe???
Shaquille O'Neal ... when have you EVER met a red-blooded American man named "Shaquille?"
Charles Krauthammer ... way too many syllables in that last name to be American...
Arnold Schwarzenegger ... Austrian ... need I say more?
Chaka Khan ... just to be safe, better send her to Gitmo, too...
Ashford and Simpson ... okay, they're names sound fine. They just creep me out. Deport!
Najee ... all terrorists go by one name: "Osama" ... okay, he goes by three names ... Saddam ... okay he had a last name, but you get the friggin point! His last name was HUSSEIN! HUSSEIN, get it? Just like Barack HUSSEIN Obama!!! and King HUSSEIN of Jordan ... okay he's our ally, but so WHAT! And stop playing that damned elevator music!!
Listen to John McCain. The al-Qaida in Iraq who weren't there before we invaded Iraq but who will follow us home if we leave Iraq and move to Detroit, where they will take THE JOBS AMERICANS AREN'T WILLING TO DO, are trying to kill us...!!! We need a president in the White House who the TERRORISTS won't mistake for a family member, or for a guy from some other foreign, un-American place ... like Hawaii.
Life sucks, and you're gonna get blown up. Vote Republican!
