Skip to comments.'SNL' Palin 'Incest' Skit Angers Viewers (Hey Obama, when are you going to condemn SNL?)

For the second week in a row, NBC's "Saturday Night Live" has taken to lampooning Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin -- but this time, it has angered conservative viewers over a skit that suggests that the Alaska governor's husband, Todd Palin, was having sex with the couple's daughters.
In the skit, show guest host James Franco plays an assignment editor at the New York Times at the head of an editorial meeting. During a mock assignment meeting where the paper announced that 50 reporters were being sent to look for dirt on Sarah Palin, a Times "reporter" asks, "What about the husband? You know he's doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It's Alaska."
In response, Franco's character said, "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 Gov. Palin."

We have three weeks to organize. We have to vote all the creeps out. We love our country and the Socialists have to go. It is the House we have to work on. Find out there voting record if they wobbled
on immigration vote them out. If you are an activist already make your calls. We have three weeks.
What else would you expect from democRAT morons. Parasites with that union mentality. For liberals it’s just so much easier than ever having to form a thought of your own
Um, it’s “militia”...
This is from last month, come here instead.
3 weeks of hell coming for Obama, do you think he’ll survive?
There are several posts discussing SNL which leads me to believe there are quite a few FR users who patronize and enjoy these type of skits.
Why ANYBODY watches that TRASH-TV is beyond me. If people don’t watch, the crap will dry up and blow away.
I think it is possibly NYC viral ad trolls.
That is SO disgusting! These people are supposed to be the compassionate ones! HA!
This appears to be from Sept. 22
Did ANY of you watch the skit? Judging by the responses, I’d say you haven’t. My God, a skit completely skewers the NYT and the DBM’s treatment of the Palin family and you people rant in the streets with torches and pitchforks.
Remember that the FBI will show up on your doorstep if you even mention the middle name of Barack HUSSIEN Obama so I guess if you mention incest in a joke about the Obama family, you would find yourself in a cell at Guantanamo.
Actually, as horrific as this is, I think they were mocking the idea of that. The idea of just throwing out complete garbage as possible “news”.
This part: In response, Franco’s character said, “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 Gov. Palin.”
It seems they are understanding the ridiculous lengths the media is going through to slam Governor Palin and how it doesn’t even take any concrete evidence, but the media is running with it.
I think it will make the mindless start to think, “Maybe this is just the media making sensational stories up”. Then again, I could be giving the average American too much credit for thinking.
Just my take.
Yes, see my post on that very thing.
Almost makes me wish I was a viewer, so I could boycott the show...
Maybe not, sounds like a sauce or glaze you pour over Cannoli's at a fancy Resturant......
