0711 - In the tank for Obama redux

Last weekend, Saturday night Live ran a skit on the bailout. Guess what? It actually took shots at some of the folks who were really responsible for the mess.

The skit, alone among all of them from last weekend, has been pulled down off of both the SNL site and NBC's hulu.com. Not only that, but NBC is even deleting questions about where it went from their message boards.

You don't think they're actually embarrassed to have skewered Democrats and their billionaire supporters such as George Soros, do you? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

"Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity."

Unless, of course, you're talking about the left, in which case, always assume the worst.

The Left's actions have long since passed the point where they can be adequately explained by stupidity.

Wow. That was brilliant comedy (I read the transcript from Michelle Malkin) and a good skewer of BOTH parties (both of whom screwed up several times during the last decade to get us here.)

But Soros really gets clobbered. HAH! I bet he's behind the backpedaling. It's the sort of problem he can throw money at.

At least so far, it's still up on

The other day, I stopped flipping channels for a second at the Daily Show - they were showing the clip of Biden "threatening" Obama "He'd better not come after my Beretta, or else!", and Stewart, mock aghast, "DID HE JUST THREATEN THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE? I'd, you know, call the Secret Service, BUT THEY WERE RIGHT THERE!" My wife looked with some distaste as I started to flip again - and I commented "Actually, Stewart does a better job reporting the news and a *far better job going after both sides* than the 'regular media' does." "Yeah, you're probably right" she agreed.

This is a similar situation - none of the major media could explain easily, and simply and in the same amount of time the truth that this skit portrays. Most of the substantiative points are covered, and the personalities are decently well represented.

I'm surprised SnL took that angle to begin with. No surprise on NBC's response sadly. So much for objectivity (not that the mainstream media was ever, in fact, objective)

Kudos to someone for having the courage to get it right though. I really need to start DVRing SNL...
