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

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......
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.
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.
"It's the seriousness of the charge."
That's what you just said. Unbelievable.
“...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.
I’m sorry...I’m an elite white guy...I have DirecTV and never entertain common TV. What is an “SNL? Southern National League? A ball club of some kind? I’ve never seen them on ESPN High Definition or The Discovery Channel High Definition.../s
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.
That’s just sick; and part of why I haven’t watched that sick program in 20 years.
That may well be exactly what the NYT editorial board is thinking.
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.
“Sir, may I suggest the Primavera Militia tonight, with a bottle of Chateau de Patriot ‘76?”
