Skip to comments.Palin family 'incest' joked about on NBC (UNBELIEVABLE!)
Posted on 09/21/2008 1:07:12 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
A week after a high-profile send-up of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on "Saturday Night Live," the NBC comedy show returned to making fun of the Alaskan governor in a skit where New York Times reporters sought to probe the possibility Palin's husband was having sex with the couple's own daughters.
"What about the husband?" asked a Times reporter during a mock assignment meeting for the paper. "You know he's doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It's Alaska."
The assignment editor for the Times, portrayed by actor James Franco, responded: "He very well could be. Admittedly, there is no evidence of that, but on the other hand, there is no convincing evidence to the contrary. And these are just some of the lingering questions about Governor Palin."
The skit featured a photo of one reporter and an on-screen message that stated, "In 2009 [reporter] Howland Gwathmey Moss, V was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his Times series on unproven, yet un-disproven incest in the Palin family. Sadly, he was to die 3 months later, run over by a snow machine, driven by a polar bear."
The final shot showed an image of a New York Times page, with headlines that included:
"While No Direct Evidence of Incest in Palin Family Emerges, Counter Evidence Remains Agonizingly Elusive" and "In a Small Alaska Town, Doubts Still Linger."

Despicable. Thanks for watching so I didn’t have to.
I wish for the good old days of Dan Akroyd and John Belushi.
The bit with Tina Fey was witty. This is just trashy!
Reminds me of Ms. Burleigh who wants all women to put on knee pads for Bill Clinton in gratitude for keeping abortion legal [more detail at bottom of my profile]. Here are a few other links regarding media bias:

I know this is pretty bad, but to my mind, they are ALSO making fun of the MSM/leftwind press!
Not saying they are trying to, but the effect is still the same.
I don’t know, it’s almost as big a send up of the press.
Haven’t seen it yet.
You would think the media might just have a glimmer of reality in that how they treat her now is going to affect
how she treats them when she is VP/P.
I taped the show tonight. The first part was fairly funny.
I’ll check this out.
It does sound almost like SNL was taking a swing at the Democrats for their idiotic slams of Palin over the last few weeks. This is about the only charge they haven’t made against Palin or her family.
Do you think that’s possible?
This is certainly in poor taste, but aren’t they actually mocking the PDS insanity of MSM reporters?
Thought I’d wake up extra early to beat you, Tiger.
I'm not so sure. I didn't see it, but from what's printed here, it looks like somebody at SNL is making a good point.
It sounds like they were making fun of the media not the Palins.
have they no shame?
i’m sure that victims of incest will think that’s really funny.../s
maybe because i’m sane, i just can’t understand their depravity.
This kind of late night comedy has always been edgy and no holds barred. The skit actually poked fun at the effete NY “journalists.” There really was never an attempt to say the Palins were incestuous.
Exactly, the were not making fun of the Palin’s with that skit. They were making fun of the MSM. Still I understand why people consider it tasteless.
yes but I bet there are a lot of Du’ers who now think something is up with those polar bears...
Shower time folks! Once again, it’s only white Christians you can make these kinds of despicable comments about on national TV and get scott clean away with it.
Looks to me like they were clearly making fun of the dirt digging reporters.
