CLINTON: SNL WARS
MSNBC ^ | March 13, 2008 | Staff

Posted on 03/13/2008 8:54:56 AM PDT by jdm

** EXCERPT **

So apparently Clinton is truly back in the game for the Dem nod. How do we know? The RNC sent out a fundraising email focused solely on Clinton, something the GOP committee hasn't done in over a month.

In her interview with NPR this morning, Clinton defended her role in the Northern Ireland peace process. She acknowledged that she was neither a principal negotiator nor at the negotiating table. But she described role as "instrumental."

Bad news for Clinton? Both the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times did stories about the speculation SNL is in the tank for Clinton. The show's writers and producers deny the charge and now the likelihood they over compensate is very likely. Per the New York Times: "The show did ask Mr. Obama to appear this week, and Mr. Downey wrote an editorial response for him to deliver, but the senator declined. ‘I hope it was scheduling and not because he hates us,’ Mr. Downey said."

The LA Times: "For the most part, the writers said they believe the show's balance is apparent over time, although the program did consciously try to spoof Clinton last week. Playing off her ominous ‘3 a.m.’ ad that suggested Obama lacked the experience to handle a crisis, the piece showed stark black-and-white photos of a panicked President Obama calling Clinton at home for help. ’If anything, it was sympathetic toward Obama,’ Michaels said, though he admitted not everyone saw it that way.”

Obama won't appear on SNL.

He remembers they only have "Pesi. No Coke."

Unless it was “Mad TV”. I only saw the snippet of footage.

Yes, you’re right. I believe Brian Williams of NBC News was the host and it was the last live show before the writer’s strike.

However, I think this article is referring to having Obama on again AFTER Hillary’s appearance which was the weekend before she won both Ohio and Texas.

Her being on SNL helped her win those two states, IMO. She came across as more human than I’ve ever seen her.

That's probably correct. There's no doubt those appearances help. For the life of me I can't figure out why they had that witch Janet Reno on. Except maybe they were more in agreement with her attacking some misguided Christians than the concern about tanks being used on American citizens.

The only way I'd believe Her Ankleship is human... is for them to redo "Alien Autopsy" with Hill as the star!.

Yet, even then... I'd never really be sure she wasn't being cloned by Beelzebub!

That was the worst idea ever.
I hope Rush enjoys President Mrs. Bill Clinton.
Obama was alays the one who would be easier to beat in a general election, especially against a Republican that “moderates” like. Not to mention Obama’s problems will be brought more to the surface in a general election.

Rush wants Clinton in the WH and he played his audience as succors. He hates McCain and will subject us to Clinton for eight yrs. to prove a point. He's tearing Obama a new one right now. I am beginning to hate the bloated gasbag.

Nonsense. There is no way HRC will end up as POTUS. If Barack and the LieTard MSM and Obamas twin leg humpers: Matthews & Olberman, then black Americans won’t turn out to vote. And if they do, many won’t vote for her, so again she’ll lose.

And it’s common knowledge for decades, that without the black vote, Dems can’t win sh*t. Even Matthews sqaid that very thing, just months ago.

That’s why Hillary is now out apologizing for Bill’s / Geraldines comments.

My how it must feel to know you have been exposed...............

Speculation SNL is in the tank......

Oh my...How obvious does it have to be that they are in a full court press for Clinton? The producers must have her name tatooed across their a.... to be so biased.

For my money, Janet Reno is the most evil witch to have been in U.S. Gov’t. And she had the audacity to write a “children’s book”.

Bobcat Goldthwait(sp) sure nailed her in response to her “children’s book”. Wish I had the exact quote he said.

She made it out as her book was to protect children from bad images with her “sweet” book or some such nonsense. Bob said they were already traumatized from what they had witenessed on TV (that she was involved in).

That goes way back. Janet Reno Dance Party.

I'll never forget that when she came on the "Janet Reno Dance Party" that nite..it was not a very flattering portrayal of the corrupt former ag..Will Ferrell played her as manlike and one who gave alcohol to kids and trapped them in her basement..and she was openly abusive and lesbian..she is so stupid she didn't realize that running episode was laughing at her..not with her..incredible..

_________________________________________________________

Baloney. His dislike of McCain is nothing compared to his hatred for the Clintons.

Obama has the race wrapped up. Nevertheless it’s great to hear the Clinton machine attack him, just as Rush planned.

Perhaps you should have directed your post to the person who made the misspelling, rather then to me, who simply quoted them verbatim.

It was just a general post. not directed at you, or even the original poster...Just got a laugh from the word the spell checker substituted for the one intended by the typist, and the image it conjured. ;)
