1) That's an important question about Tina Fey.

2) As regards Gov. Palin, it's weighted similarly to the question, "When did you stop beating your wife?"

taney71:
Funny parts in all. However, I thought last night's skit was a bit over the top in its hatred for Palin. And I do mean hate. Tina Fey can barely hide how much she loves making fun of Palin and some of the parts were actually more cruel than funny. Like the forcing teenage marriage bit. I want to see SNL or the media go after Obama's kids like they have Palin's. If the shoe was on the other foot McCain's camp would be denouncing those attacks all the time, but Obama has only done that once and at some minor stop on his campaign. In all my life I have never seen the media been this in the tank for a candidate. I guess watching the Democratic primary should have given me some warning. If the media could turn against the Clintons it could freely support Obama without much pushback.

For me, it really depends on how the election goes. If my side wins, they're all classics &should be remembered as such.

But if my side loses, then they're a depressing sign of how mean this country has gotten and I'll wind up a bitter old man digging his fingernails into the armrests as I think about what the media have wrought.

But I'll vote for the debate by a wink.

Incidentally, I think their portrayal of Biden was pretty harsh as well, especially emphasizing the way that he (and other Democrats) have a tendency to try to relate to the American people by telling them how much their lives suck.

I think the problem with the debate is that most of the what was funny in the first skit and the second is kind of tired now.

I don't think I would call any of them not funny, I just think the Palin jokes are retreads after three skits and not all that original.

I did see the Bush, Pelosi, Frank press conference and that one was pretty funny-especially the jabs at Soros.

taney71:

This is not PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome), unlike the ODS (Obama Derangement Syndrome) currently afflicting the right. It's just what she says and her mannerisms that are so funny and ripe for satire. Don't you find a VP candidate giving winks a little creepy?

Her confusion of the current commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan (Gen. David McKiernan) with a Civil War general (George B. McClellan) who refused to agressively fight is telling about her lack of knowledge about current affairs or American history. Calling Gen. McKiernan "McClellan" was a real insult to his military leadership.

Tina Fey satirizing Sarah Palin is no different than Darrell Hammond's portrayal of Bill Clinton. I'm sure you laughed at that. Further, the overall media's interest in Sarah Palin is driven by the very fact she brings up: she's not part of the Washington establishment. She was (and still is) completely unknown, unvetted by years of media coverage (unlike Joe Biden or John McCain). So the press is cramming into 8 weeks coverage that would normally have stretched out for years.

I voted for the interview, because it was substantially based on her own words. Regarding the teen marriage bit, even though the campaign has said that there will be a summer (and we know who will be holding the shotgun) wedding, I'll bet that if McCain-Palin loses, no wedding will occur, since there would be no political reason to have it. I know, you're shocked I viewed the announcement through a political lense. 'Tis the season.

I must say that Tina Fey does one of the best jobs parodying a public figure that I can remember. Of course, it is a natural - when Gov. Palin was asked about it, she responded that she had played Fey for Halloween one year. Fey not only has the look down, but also the voice. One reason to vote for McCain this time around is to be able to watch Fey play Palin on a routine basis.

they're all funny and fey's a wonderful mimic but i think the tone has become meaner, more condescending. SNL seems to poke fun at democrats only out of a sense of duty. only so those laughing at the venom (and i do think it is venomous) directed at palin don't feel too ashamed of their spite because of an obligatory biden/obama poke to give the appearance of fairplay. it isn't as if there isn't anything to lampoon on the left. but even biden's foibles were cast in a generous light in the last one.

Kevin Murphy:
Now they just need to run a skit showing a Muslim Presidnet Obama conspiring with the FBI Director Ayres to fly more planes into buildings -- and having Obama say "They won't suspect me, either."

Or Joe Biden making outrageous stuff up during the debates. Such as how the US and Bolivia had eradicated the worldwide drug trade and George Bush had let it return through his alienation of our former ally Chavez, or how the whole sub-prime mortgage mess can be traced to unauthorized options trades by Dick Cheney, or how Bush thinks that Article XI of the Constitution makes the President Commander-in-Chief when it really talks about the Right to Social Security (all of whose assets Bush wants to put in the sub-prime mortgage market).

Or Clinton asking Palin for advice about Chelsea's pregnacy. Should she have an abortion like the Bush twins have done? And Palin responding that Chelsea should have the baby, but Hillary should claim it was hers. And asking if the father was Bill? Why? Just asking, never mind.

That would be about as "funny"

If the shoe was on the other foot, we wouldn't be hearing platitudes about how "life happens." It would be more like this:

If the Obamas had a 17 year-old daughter who was unmarried and pregnant by a tough-talking black kid, my guess is if that they all appeared onstage at a Democratic convention and the delegates were cheering wildly, a number of conservatives might be discussing the issue of dysfunctional black families.


That's quite an understatement. And pay attention to who said it.

Tina Fey looks more like Sarah Palin than Sarah Palin does.

On a serious note, my hunch -- this is based on living in this country and being an acute observer -- is that criticism of a President Obama will be difficult as it will be met by accusations of racism no matter how well founded. OK, think I'm wrong, maybe I am, but check back with me June 20, 2009.

Actually that was one thing that bothered me about the debate, they didn't really use all the outright whoppers Biden told.

I also think with regard to Palin they should have done more on Maverick, because even though I support the McCain/Palin ticket I think I am going to gouge my eyes out if I hear either one of them use the term again.

Her confusion of the current commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan (Gen. David McKiernan) with a Civil War general (George B. McClellan) who refused to agressively fight is telling about her lack of knowledge about current affairs or American history. Calling Gen. McKiernan "McClellan" was a real insult to his military leadership.

Slips about names don't bother me all that much. She actually seemed to be aware of what she was saying he said, which to me is more important than getting the name right. After all Obama called McCain "Tom" during their debate.

As for having a clue about history-Biden didn't seem to realize who was president when the stock market crashed or that there wasn't a TV. And i am still waiting to find out when we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon. Obama is running to be president of all 60 states (because he had visited 57, still had one to go, and wasn't going to get to campaign in Hawaii or Alaska).

The funniset - or rather the most laughable - imitations this election cycle are reflected in the MSM's pretenders, representing themselves as something other than an operating unit of the Obama campaign. And yes, that's a generalization only, but it's no less true.

(Here, for merely one of the more blatant examples, another example is reflected in the contrast of Katie Couric's chummy, leading interview with Biden vs. Couric's interview with Palin; a viper, with a superficially earnest smile on her fact, is still a viper. But those are merely two blatant examples.)

Likewise and as others have noted, there's a dearth - there's a total absence - of funny and satirically revealing commentary when it comes to "The One," the beatified beneficiary of all this funny stuff.

I absolutely agree with this.

I think hard news criticism won't be difficult, but anything meant to be satire-SNL, the various other humor posing as news shows, late night TV, and editorial cartoons will have a very hard time. Some will brave the criticism and do it, but I suspect we are going to have at least 4 years of "racist!" cries if Obama wins the election.

jukeboxclown,

The link you're referring to, excerpt, from that reader at a major newsroom, emphasis added:

"Off the record, every suspicion you have about MSM being in the tank for O[bama] is true. We have a team of 4 people going thru dumpsters in Alaska and 4 in arizona. Not a single one looking into Acorn, Ayers or Freddiemae. Editor refuses to publish anything that would jeopardize election for O, and betting you dollars to donuts same is true at NYT, others. People cheer when CNN or NBC run another Palin-mocking but raising any reasonable inquiry into obama is derided or flat out ignored. The fix is in, and its working." I asked permission to reprint without attribution and it was granted."

Sneer away, then sneer yet again, but sneers are all you have. Hence the quality of your comment.

Asher,

No, it's not "justified" to have a friendly chat on the couch with Biden vs. a highly edited, tendentious "interview" with Palin. Within the scope of your own myopic vision, yes - but in the real world, not remotely so. Which is why your own "argument" is based upon nothing more than a sneer and a highly incurious sense as well.

As to Biden's mendacity and ignorance and out of touch sense, for starters, here and reflecting more directly on "The One," here. A very brief excerpt from the first of those two links, detailing the 14 lies of O'Biden:
1. TAX VOTE: Biden said McCain voted "the exact same way" as Obama to increase taxes on Americans earning just $42,000, but McCain DID NOT VOTE THAT WAY.

[...]

3. OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING: Biden said, "Drill we must." But Biden has opposed offshore drilling and even compared offshore drilling to "raping the Outer Continental Shelf."

It would have been easy to make fun of the Article I confusion or Katy's restaurant gaffe or the misleading comments on the "spending more in three weeks in Iraq than during the entire Afghanistan war, but they didn't. Instead they made the concern about fact-checking and follow-up questions Palin's. Biden provided plenty more comic fodder than they decided to use.

How could they have made fun of the Article I confusion? No one would get it because about 1% of the country knows which article is which. In order to make fun of it, they would have to have Ifill correct him. And that wouldn't even be very funny. Same thing with the restaurant. The audience doesn't know the restaurant is out of business, so they would have to tell us in some sort of way. And that wouldn't work. I mean, how would you script it? Like this?

Get a grip, man.

To the question: I seldom find anyone's satirical mockups all that funny. You can always tell who they're rooting for (SNL rooting for Hillary in the mock Obama-Clinton), but when anyone points out the obvious they're accused of being humorless and oversensitive. "Oh no, man, they skewered both sides equally." Usually, it degenerates to the overbroad stereotypes of high school skit night.

When I was in theater in my younger, socialist years, the unfairness - and unfunniness - of the humor was one of the early factors in starting me on my long day's journey to the right.

Michael B (mail):
"bitter"

Good grief, what obtuse witlessness. Look, here's why it has (quite literally) nothing to do with any type of base "bitterness." This is about the self-promoting, self-enamored Fourth Estate, the MSM, acting literally as an operating unit of the Obama/Biden campaign. The pronounced bias is bad enough, especially so when it's forwarded with preachments and declarations of "objectivity". But when it branches off further still into full-bore praxis, to practical and strategically conceived alliances, with only the thinest veneer of professed "objectivity" - then that too is removed - mere "bitterness" has nothing to do with it. Or, if it does, the charge needs to be supported because it's not at all self-evident.

Two additional examples, emphasis added:

The Most Bizarre Journalistic Malpractice Yet?
It's a contender, anyway: the Associated Press claims that Sarah Palin's criticism of Barack Obama's relationship with Bill Ayers was racist!

The AP's article is an "analysis" by one Douglass K. Daniel, described as "a writer and editor with the Washington bureau of The Associated Press." It has to be read to be believed ...
Campaign Finance Fraud: the Associated Press covers up
... The sort of blatant criminality from which Obama has benefited is suggested by this report by Newsweek's Michael Isikoff ...

[...]

It is illegal for foreigners to donate to an American political campaign, and Obama has refused to release information about his "small" donors. So how, exactly, could the Republican Party possibly have a "list of foreign donors to Obama's campaign?"

Running interference for criminal fraud: that's the role of the Associated Press since it became a liberal advocacy organization.

Michael B:

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone (or FEC filing). From WaPo's The Trail:


The FEC sent a letter to Sen. John McCain's campaign treasurer Sept. 30 (before the RMC complaint) demanding the candidate turn over more information about "contributions that appear to exceed the limits."

The letter is accompanied by a nine-page list showing scores of overages from McCain's August campaign finance report, including nearly $13,000 from Texas rancher Ray R. Barrett Jr.; $9,200 from an Iraqi security consultant, H. Carter Andress; and $5,000 from Joseph F. Davolio, an executive at a major national liquor, beer and wine distributor.

"Please inform the Commission of your corrective action immediately in writing and provide photocopies of any refund checks and/or letters reattributing or redesignating the contributions in question," the letter from the FEC's senior campaign finance analyst, Leah S. Palmer, says. "The acceptance of excessive contributions is a serious problem."


Just another skirmish in the war.
10.6.2008 10:36pm
Michael B (mail):
deepthought,

It of course doesn't occur to you that such matters are part and parcel of each campaign season. But secondly and more importantly, since "Obama has refused to release information about his "small" donors", it's more than a little convenient to refer to a report that resulted from the fact that McCain had released his own report to the FEC.

As you suggest, this finance stuff is typically reflective of minor skirmishes, but it was originally brought up in conjunction with a different issue, the fact the "MSM" is in large part not merely biased, but is functioning as an arm of the Obama/Biden campaign.

Hence this and this were previously linked.

Deep thought? Or selectively incurious?

The thread will be closed if I wait to watch all the skits to add my 2 cents. This oldfart hasn't watched SNL since about when Tim McDonald thinks it stopped being funny - and I can't stay up that late watching TV anyway.

I like Palin because she's so gosh-darned cute (if she remains VP it doesn't matter, if that heartbeat happens then the shadow government puppetmasters will have to reveal themselves, but they'd be there anyway) and I'll be cheering for McCain while I vote for Barr and my state goes for Obama, but I think they skewered her, and Biden, pretty well in the debate (and I did watch the debate, because a lot of times I barely know what the players in Washington look and sound like, and I don't want that to happen again).

You all might be right that they're harsher on Palin and McCain than on Biden and Obama; if so that's not news either.

Agreed, Rodger Lodger. I'm no fan of racism. I look forward to the day when Obama is not "the Black President" but merely "the President (whose father was Kenyan.)"
