DOVER, Del. With the new season of "Saturday Night Live" comes a fresh batch of political satire and Delaware Senate hopeful Christine O'Donnell is the first target.
The Republican candidate's past statements were fodder for the opening sketch on Saturday night's broadcast on NBC.

Unless people think Sarah would've been in a better position right now without the media treatment.
Do they also go after Democrats?
I tried watching that show recently. It is so far from funny its like totally lame. Nothing like the original cast.
Free publicity—priceless! :-)
This upcoming election may be the one with the most informed voters in American history, all thanks to The Won in the White House, LOL. People have access to the internet, they can research Christine’s comments from 15-20 years ago and find out for themselves exactly what she was talking about in context, etc.
The days of the third party MSMs telling us what they thought we need to know and censoring what we SHOULD have been told are over. Knowledge is power, and WE THE PEOPLE are using that knowledge to take back America on November 2nd!
Have they ever done anything on 0bama?
Funny with a congress and White House run into the ground by Democrats, and this is all SNL can find to mock?
And if they’re going to focus on a politician from Delaware, I can think of a much richer target than O’Donnell.
Funny how libs don’t seem to even notice that Biden is the longest running joke in American political humor.
Why is the left and some on ther right working so hard to destroy Christine O'Donnell? My theory is Cap N'Trade. If she wins she is seated right away. That means the lame duck session has her vote. The forces of the left from all over the world were counting on looting America through this scam and lots of Americans had their stocks and bonds all set up to make a killing off of it. All of a sudden their ace in the whole , Castle, loses! So it becomes panic time , O'Donnell just might win! Que the smear machine and launched into full attack mode. You can't pick on the lady , that's mean, that's sexist , unless of course, she's a Republican.
A survey has been completed by all of the SNL viewers. Half of them stated that they are less likely to favor O’Donnell after watching the skit. The other three viewers are still undecided.
They do, sometimes. They treat Obama very gently. As if they were at all rough he would just shatter into a million pieces.
Which is true. They could crush Obama in an instant. Week 9 of “reasons why Obama is a Muslim” Any of this stuff we know.
They know it. The guy who plays him plays him as unfunny as possible.
SNL has been better and it’s been worse. Wiig is good.
Yeah. The one sketch that was was funny with Obama was “do sex to me” - with the Chinese.
This is all fine. NBC is a Democrat TV station so they attack Republicans and praise Democrats. Sometimes they can’t help but be unflattering to Democrats. They don’t like Pelosi or Reid as much as they like Obama. And they do have Biden in sketches and they do make fun of him, and they don’t Obama.
I would say more favorable.
The sketch was lame and unfunny, a made to order personal attack on O’Donnell.
The media has a limited amount of time and a limited amount of ammunition. They’re spending it on Christine, not others. If Castle was the nominee, they’d be talking about someone else.
And it seems like they’re in for a dime, they’ll be in for a dollar. And this will cause Christine’s money to go up, which means more tv commercials in Delaware. The polls will close, the media will continue to spend time on Christine, etc etc.
All the other tea party candidates go about winning in their own states, and do great. Everything is going smoothly.
“This upcoming election may be the one with the most informed voters in American history.”
The internet is the worst thing to happen to tyrants since the printing press.
I dunno. It was kinda funny. The Palin sketches are kinda funny. Wiig didn’t have much funny there. They put her right at the top. First sketch.
You seem to be operating under the assumption that these things actually could be hurting Christine. I’d say that a sketch pretty much just like this was foreseeable in May. Because stuff like this is what I figured would happen if she won the primary.
No, then they would be attacking Kirk and Rouse too.
I’m not sure why each specific person feels they’re attacking her. But there are 100 reasons. She’s attacking everything about them head on. Need money? nope Need any job at all? nope A college degree? not really That’s the “elite”. Also, she’s a real socon. With tons of hardcore socon quotes. They do not like socons. They like talking about sex. They like calling other people stupid. We’re providing them with what they like talking about. And the
American people are not with them. They’re going to hit one of these Christine quotes, and someone on tv is going to say something sick. And we go to battle with that quote.
Are you with Chris Coons and that guy that said that thing? or not.
Now, of course, that’s off message, and there are millions of dollars to be spend hammering on message.
Christines campaign should be recording every channel that has people talking about her. Didn’t Palin have a fight with Letterman?
The premise of the sketch seemed too obvious to be funny, and O’Donnell is a small target compared with Obama. SNL has a far richer source of satire there.
Well, yeah. But it’s SNL, and they try hard to avoid Obama.
I was happy to see Christine getting the big spotlight.
