They're making Palin's character (Tina Fey) sound really stupid and inarticulate. Figures. Can't wait to see what they do with the debates.
It made me laugh. I had heard Gov. Palin might be making an appearance, but I guess not. Too bad, would’ve been fun.
Yes but she was really adorable.
Well, Tina Fey did look really HOT
The left try to do the same to Reagan. Too many Rinos are playing along with this though. She needs a good debate to shut them up.
For those of us in a foreign country without SNL...what is going on???
Haven’t watched SNL since they fired Norm MacDonald. Have no intention of ever watching it again.
It was probably put out by the SNL staff in order to increase viewers for tonight's show, knowing that conservatives would be all too gullible and tune in. Our TV will not be on SNL when it is televised on the west coast.
During the primaries Obama was made out to be a stuttering buffoon, but that seemed to be due to the cast’s preference for HRC. Magically he’ll become an articulate fellow and McCain will be an idiot.
I haven’t checked their ratings but I can’t imagine that they’re that great any more.
Let them lower the expectations, for Sarah’s boxing gloves, come debate time.
Alinsky’s radical losers ridicule.
We “speak the truth in love.”
(Well, we snicker to each other, too.)
They are making Palin look like a total airhead. It is not funny at all. They are really going overboard with it.
I’m boycotting all of these liberal comedy programs. I pretty much stopped watching Jay Leno four years ago when he went overboard with jokes re: Bush not serving in the military. As we know, he did serve in the Texas Air National Guard, and spent lots more time there than did JFnKerry. But we’d never know that from the comedy and MSM libs.
Lefties can’t handle two things:
1) Conservatives in good humor.
2) Having their ideas ridiculed or themselves ridiculed.
What they did to Bob Dole using that tool, Norm MacDonald was an abomination. He's lucky he didn't meet a beefy conservative in an alley.
Norm MacDonald can ____________ (or repent to his Maker).
I should have said Bush spent more time in the Texas ANG than did Kerry in Vietnam.
My prediction is that they had to slander Palin REALLY BADLY at the beginning so they can get away with communicating a few things “under the guise of comedy” AGAINST Obama THAT LEAVE A MARK that the more perceptive people watching (like all of us) WILL catch....so watch THAT later (debate) skit CLOSELY.
Same hatchet job as done to Katherine Harris. GOP threw Harris under the bus. Will they do the same to Palin?
“I havent checked their ratings but I cant imagine that theyre that great any more.”
Their ratings are strong: http://tv.popcrunch.com/tina-fey-michael-phelps-bring-best-snl-premiere-ratings-since-2001/
I havent watched SNL on a regular basis since the early 80’s and things like last week’s Todd Palin skit are why.
It sounds like another 90 minute Obama/DNC ad.
It was not cute or funny tonite. They went overboard and it is an old skit already.
You sure that’s Tina Fey? Looked like Sarah Palin to me. I read somewhere she was possibly coming on.
Looks like the debate skit is next.
At least they’re likeable. They always make GWB out to be stupid but good-natured actually.
I’m curious how they portrayed Reagan? (I was too young)
Are you kidding?? They would never make fun of barry. If anything they will have Obama looking like he’s talking to a crzy old man. There will be nothing but skits designed to destroy McCain/Palin this close to the election.
here come the debates. I want to see if they make ANY fun
I forget who played Reagan, but they tended to play him as a forgetful, p-whipped old fool IIRC.
Sarah seems to have the sense to not go on such a stupid, biased show. I wish people had the same sense not to watch it.
Please tell me you watched the one where they had him come back and host, that was the best episode ever, he ruined every skit.
Thanks to Michael Phelps.
I see McCain’s braclet but not Obama’s.
The Sarah Palin America will see on Thursday will make NBC burn all their SNL tapes!
It would be funny if at the end they had guys come in with clubs and shirts saying “Truth Squad”.
The debate skit is sucking wind
Funny thing is Norm is a conservative.
SNL has always portrayed politicians as idiots, nothing new here. IMO, Sarah Palin character comes off better than others.
The Sarah Palin America will see on Thursday will make NBC burn.
They need to hit the bracelet thing. Come on.
Nope, but that sounds like something he’d do.
Ok, they just hit Obama on using ‘the race card.’
If you get bored with SNL, “Random Hearts” is on thillermax. My dad thought that Kristin Scott Thomas’ portrayal in the movie was a dead on Hillary Clinton.
I like the part about Obama saying he had an earmark for Rezco hush money...
well, I just caught a few minutes of the “debates”.....they have their mccain talking about going nude....? stupid, very stupid. do they think that is funny?
At least they are dinging Barama, but this skit is lame so far.
its too stupid..its too stupid. and the laugh background laughter is awful.
Really bad. lousy writers. The tv now goes off. My dog is threatening to throw up !ha.
Huckabee is about to sing to close out his new show....
I bet Tony Snow would have joined in........
Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran. I like it.
To end this current episode, or to portend the coming "Once and Done" cancellation?
