DUmmie FUnnies 10-04-09 (DUmmies React To SNL Obama "Jack Squat" Skit)
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | 10-04-09 | DUmmies and PJ-Comix

Posted on 10/04/2009 4:04:20 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

Something shocking here. I actually agree with the DUmmies that Saturday Night Live performer, Fred Armisen, did a lousy job of impersonating Barack Obama's voice. It's really not that tough. All you have to do is snap out a few words, pause, and then speak again. Yet Armisen did not even make the slightest attempt to do this. Why didn't the SNL director point this out? Who knows? However, despite that obvious flaw, the SNL skit last night was hilarious as you can see in this VIDEO. Basically, they had Obama admitting that the only things he has been able to accomplish were "JACK and SQUAT." And despite all of Obama's rhetoric, so true. We have all known such BS artists. I remember a Brit that my Peruvian spear fishing buddy, Adilio, and I once met. The Brit was going on and on about what a great skin diver he was. So we go out to Malibu with him and the moment he reached the kelp beds he went BERSERK. He started screaming and flailing away as we struggled to drag him back to shore where he explained to us that the inanimate kelp "were strangling me." Yeah, experienced skin diver my foot! Unfortunately we now have just such a BS artist in the White House as even the DUmmies are forced to admit in their THREAD, "SNL Mocks Obama For Doing Jack Squat." So let us now watch the DUmmies ponder Obama doing JACK SQUAT in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, hoping that SNL performer take a few minutes to try to sound even sound even remotely remotely like The One, is in the [barackets]:

SNL Mocks Obama For Doing Jack Squat

[Say goodbye to Bamster Mojo.]

I saw it last night. I was at 1st offended. Then I realized I had no arguments against it except for the fact that Obama has been President for less than a year. When he said the voters on the left are the ones who should really be angry (or words to that affect), I realized I was angry at Obama. But what have I done about it? What protest had I attended to show Obama where we stand? None, nadda, zip.

[So all you've done is JACK and SQUAT.]

Last time I checked we had huge majorities in both houses. "If not now , when?"

[Right after the 2010 elections. Hee! Hee!]

One of his biggest failures is retaining DADT.

[DADT: Insider DUmmie lingo for Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Are you hearing this, Ben Burch?]

it would be nice if Armison would at least get the voice inflection right. His gestures and overall imitation of President Obama are not worth the time he gets to do this skit.

[I agree. How hard is it to pause every few seconds, say "Uh...uh..." and then proceed until the next stumble?]

It was great. And right on target. Obama has failed miserably.

[Epic fail.]

10 months out of 48 of his term and he has failed?

[It took Jimmy Carter twice as long to fail.]

We just have to be more patient. Year 2 is going to be great!

[Is that you, Pollyanna?]

Obama has continued bailouts and wars.....even cash for clunkers benefited people who bought those big SUVs.

[True story. On Friday I called a friend of mine who was a sales manager at a big auto dealership. Things slowed down so much post cash for clunkers that he had to quit his job and is now selling bonsai plants at a gas station.]

He propped up the bankers with our tax dollars by guaranteeing trillions in bad loans, while allowing them to shower themselves with princely bonuses. Doesn't that count for something?

[He parked it.]

The taxpayers are currently on the hook for $13 Trillion (one year's GDP!) that our government has put at risk guaranteeing rotten assets. That's above and beyond TARP and the "stimulus".

[Change we can believe in.]

Yeah, I didn't think the "Change we can believe in" slogan was a laugh riot either, but I guess the jokes on me!

[BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!]

I fear for the guy - but the skit is correct.

[He blew it.]

how about firing that guy and getting somebody who could do an Obama impression

[Or have Armisen spend, oh, 5 minutes practicing Obama's speech pattern. It's not that tough.]

Whistle past the graveyard at your own expense, DUers Because like it or not, this is the growing perception of Obama.

You can bury your head in the sand and make snide comments about the quality of the impression; you can decry what is presented here as "RW smears", but it doesn't matter one iota.

This is the perception most Americans have of Obama, and those Americans are not going to care about the "only 8 months" argument, nor will they give much of a hoot about the nuance of "he's working on it". Obama needs to stop worrying about pissing off the right-wing and push hard to keep the promises he made, or he is going to end up a one-term president.

[Hey, it only took Obama 4 months to pick out what dog to get for the White House.]

I mean I'd really like some glimmer of hope that this was largely parody and not accurate but once I realized the gist of the skit I realized it was sadly and pathetically true.

[Also hilariously true.]

I laughed at it at first, but it was mostly upsetting that SNL took such an obvious failure on the part of this administration and tried to make us laugh about it.

[Obvious Epic Fail.]

I have given support to obama time and time again, and so far he has done absolutely nothing but talk.

[The technical term for this is BS.]

has he given up on doing an Obama impression? sounds like he's talking in his normal voice.

[Yeah, what was with his laziness in not even attempting to try to do an Obama vocal impression?]

It appears as if Armisen didn't want to do the skit... that's the impression I got last night. Seemed like he wasn't using his Obama voice because his heart wasn't in the skit.

[If I put Armisen to work for just one day selling Bonsai plants at a gas station like my friend, that would sure motivate him to get the Bamster voice right. Shape up or ship out, Fred!]

Any DUFU PINGEES who live in Puerto Rico? My wife and I are planning to fly there FREE on Nov. 13 (Friday) and stay until Nov. 15 (Sunday). We plan to visit Culebra island on Saturday. As part of my plan (and planned travel story) about traveling cheap, we need to stay at someone's place for two nights. In exchange I will teach you how you too can travel for FREE (or almost FREE) plus I will show you how to permanently cut your food bills by at least 75%. In fact right now I am eating my 50 cent boxes of TGI Friday's chicken wings.

FreepMail me if you have any such pad available. I promise not to act too drunk while I empty your Puerto Rican rum.

Yes, over and over again. And with 38 more to go I expect he will establish a record for failure that will stand for generations...

I saw the BO impersonator SNL has when I tuned in a time or two last year. I didn’t think he was very good. I thought they would have replaced him by now. Oh well, he’s kind of mirroring Zero in a way by being bad at his job.

Other than the briefest of references on South Park, I believe this may be the first "anti-Obama" comedy skit to air on Fringe Media. Too bad the guy didn't even try to do an Obama voice. Also, he should have had a teleprompter, had it malfunction, and then say something completely incoherent.

That's strange. I checked and there is a members list for Puerto Rico. And food is relatively expensive on that island except for tropical fruit. Which reminds me, I'm hungry and will now microwave up another box of my 50 cent TGI Friday's chicken wings. Last year I thought I was getting great deals with my $1.50 DiGiorno pizzas. Now I get deals that put that to shame. Hint! Hint!---To you PR Freepers.

Believe it or not....I know where most of the opening credit views were shot. Interestingly, the house itself is not in Bergen or Essex counties where most of the show takes place, but rather Florham Park, Morris County.

Oh Yeah, as a further incentive, I live at the Jersey Shore, so I can get you into AC with chips and a free buffet. It'll cost you ten bucks for the bus ticket.

Well for SNL to do a "non impersonation" impersonation is not new remeber “Chevy” Chase did Ford?

“Chevy” Chase didn't ever try to sound or look like Ford he just did prat falls and dizzy non sequitur

In many way that can be a far devastating kind of impersonation ... you just impersonate the one aspect your mocking of the person

Fred Armisen usually does a great obama voice. Check any of his past skits.

For some reason he purposely used his own voice. Maybe he didn’t like the content.
