'SNL' Palin 'Incest' Skit Angers Viewers (Hey Obama, when are you going to condemn SNL?)
WBAL TV ^ | 9/22/2008 | wbal

Posted on 10/12/2008 6:31:57 AM PDT by tobyhill

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."

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

If Obama is so concerned with the “personal” attacks from the McCain supporters (said loosely) then he should start with his own backyard.

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.

I wanted to make sure FReepers that are calling for a “civil” debate understand where the attacks started from.

I don't think anyone here “enjoy” this kind of crapola but no one should back down on calling Obama out on his hypocritical condemnation.

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.

Remember the old rule, plant the seeds. Everyone already knows the NY Slimes is a piece of crap but SNL attempted to plant seeds of this grotesque innuendo.

You got that right. Why waste time watching some left wing crap?
The left loves to insert Politics into every message. Just like the Communists and Nazis. They cant have a show or a skit without promoting their ideas. Scary, isnt it?

Believe what you like, but you’re attempting to trash a scathing indictment of the DBM. That does not make sense. Even if SNL is generally left-leaning, in this case, and in the case of the bailout skit, the enemy of our enemy is our friend. We would do well to count to ten and APPLY SOME ANALYSIS before ranting and shooting from the hip.

This took place three weeks ago. You’re a little late. The implication is that you didn’t even see the skit you’re posting about.

Most normal people find the mere innuendo gross and most normal people know what SNL was attempting to portray. I have yet to hear a word from Obama for his SNL supporters to knock it off and yesterday Tina Fay admitted she was doing these skits to get Obama elected and will only quit on Nov 5. If you didn't like the thread then you didn't have to respond.

a Times "reporter" asks, "What about the husband? You know he's doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It's Alaska."

I just wonder what kind of reaction there would have been if someone had said something like "You just know Obama is doing his daughters.... He is black, you know."

No, I don't wonder.

“...Scary, isnt it?”

I don’t know about “scary”.....tedious and odius are terms that come to mind.

Not a day passes that my level of contempt, disgust and hatred fails to increase in intensity.

Yep. SNL planted the seeds of innuendo of a very gross subject and for 3 weeks now the libs have run with these SNL skits. Where is the Obama condemnation of these skits?

The premise of this “skit” is within reason of the typical supporter of todays Democrat Party, ie; lowlife scum.

Ahhhh..for the good ol’ days when one could communicate intellectually with most any Democrat, and come to agreement. Not so today as those flying the Dem flag are actually Socialists. There is no such thing as communicating intellectually with cement, and one might be considered somewhat odd if found to be attempting to do so.

The “skit” addresses their choir, and IMO will send moral undecideds running for McCain/Palin.

I don't watch that trash either but every cable news channel from CNN to even Fox has been promoting these skits. They ask from Mon-Fri “what will SNL do next?” then on Sunday-Thurs replay the weeks skits about Palin over and over. Some here on FR seem to enjoy this kind of liberal crap.

He won’t condemn it. SNL is a tool of NBC being used to promote Obama and make McCain/Palin look like indept idiots in the name of “comedy”. NBC/MSNBC/CNBC no longer exists in my household. Boycott them and their advertisers. Driver them out of business. The have been the major propagandists of this election.
