Comedy Relief That May Become Reality

This is from Saturday's episode of SNL.



Satire, yes. But there is a message here that needs to be carefully considered, before people cast their votes this fall. If SNL writers can recognize this as a possible scenario, how much more should the voters open their minds to this possibility?

There are no do overs, no second chances. Too much is at stake.

This was a satire and nothing more, people should see beyond the jokes and decide what they really want. Someone of sound judgement which is definently not Senator Clinton.

SNL has been fantastic lately!

I actually thought that Hillary’s on-stage performance about the heavens opening up, and the angels singing beautiful choruses was a good assessment of how Obama supporters see him. The last great hope for mankind. No one considers that he is no more qualified for the presidency than Jimmy Carter was. Thinking that he has what it takes to lead the United States is nothing if not arrogant; he not an accomplished statesman and does not have the knowledge or understanding of the “real world,” unless growing up in a broken home is now a major qualifier. Sound judgment — a subjective term if ever I heard one. Most of us understand what we think that means, but I’m sorry to say that isn’t the issue confronting most voters. No, his gift for oratory, empty promises, and two-second sound bites for “change,” and “Yes, we can” persuades them. None of this bodes well for the immediate future, and all I can say is that if he is ultimately elected, please fasten your seat belts, keep your arms and hands inside the car, and hold on for dear life.

Not bad. Sounded like a SNL endorsement of Hillary, even though they tried to make it a parody at the end. I think Bill should have been included Bill since he is Hillary's "experience". He's the elephant in her room.

BTW, I noticed that Hillary's bedroom featured a lamp with an eagle on the stem and the headboard of the bed also had an eagle type decoration. Were they implying these were some of the stolen articles from their White House days??!!

Speaking of comedy relief, doesn't the federal government have enough to do without wasting resources to investigate Mark Spitzer for fooling around with prostitutes? Aren't there some terrorists out there just asking for an arrest?

Just asking.

Or Eliot, either.

Crian,

//This was a satire and nothing more//

Understood. But as satirical as it was, like all satire, there was/is an element of truth hidden behind it.

//Someone of sound judgement which is definently not Senator Clinton.//

On this, we agree. I am mnot a Hillary fan in the least, mainly because I do not trust her character. She's a chameleon.

Oh, I don't know if I'd go that far. I tried to watch the skit afterward, and it was kind of lame.

I whole-heartedly agree. It was a very accurate assessment, if you ask me.

AC,

Very astute observation. To be honest with you, I didn't pick up on it, until you mentioned it. I was a bit tired when I watched the skit live.

Mark Spitz probably would have had to hock a few of those medals to afford the high prices being charged. ;)

Nice recovery though.

//Aren't there some terrorists out there just asking for an arrest?//

My thoughts exactly. Personally, I don't give a rat's derrière what these people do on their own time, with their own money. But when they tax the hell out of us and use our money, it's a different story.

The funny thing is how much of a sanctimonious ass this guy is and now he gets caught doing this.
