Late night comedy show “Saturday Night Live” featured a parody commercial on last night’s episode aimed at highlighting the several scandals plaguing President Barack Obama’s second term in office.

The skit was a parody advertisement for an anti-depressant dubbed “Paxil: Second Term Strength” which the ad said was “the only anti-depressant strong enough for an embattled second term.”

Yawn.

They’re so afraid it’s pitiful.

The double standard screams.

Obama is so mockable it’s beyond easy comedy.

When your payoff to the MSM stops working, costly.

When you loose NBC SNL, priceless.

Put a fork in him. This Clown is done.

I read that Lorne Michaels once said in an interview, the Democrats are hurt when SNL mocks them but the Dems love the way SNL treats Republicans. I think that Dems can’t figure out why their close friends and allies would make fun of them. I think it’s closely associated with the Media when they commit a random act of journalism and tell the truth about Democrats. Which is very rare.

“They’re so afraid it’s pitiful.”

Exactly. This must be the mandatory once-in-a -year skit for conservatives so they want to show they’re fair. Then it’s back next week like usual to “let’s mock the right” skits.

Finally, something funny out of SNL.

even though he’s always done a good Obama impersonation, SNL refused to let the black guy play the black guy.

When even a left-leaning crew like SNL starts to mock The One, it won’t be long until this seething ferment of dissatisfaction begins to boil over.

Not strong enough boilerplate in the world to contain this when the Left thinks it has been betrayed, especially when the betrayal is internal. It is like Nazi Germany turning on the Soviet Union. On June 22, 1941, the Hitler regime declared war on the Stalin regime, in blatant disregard of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, signed less than two years earlier, in August and September of 1939.

It has been a most successful job of disinformation to believe that the National Socialism of Nazi Germany was fundamentally or even essentially different from the International Socialism of the Soviet Union. Germany just started off with a broader industrial base and higher average scholastic attainment than Mother Russia, but both regimes were ruthless in their dealings with “the Jews”, codeword for the enemies of the State.

It was like watching, today, two different factions of Muslims fighting each other. And THEY think “the Jews” are the source of all their woes and failures.

I think that Obama is so far gone they would be seen as ridiculous for ignoring it. They probably have BO staff write the skits the way Hillary used to do when forced on talk shows.

Btw she’ll fall flat in the person to person no middle man media Cruz is so good at

To be sure.

Dems feel cool and hip that they can cut on fellow Dems.

It makes them feel open-minded.

“See, look at us, we are fair”

Ripping on Republicans is a completely different story.

It is expected or assumed as the way things are or should be.

It is “understood” that republicans are evil.

Between the media and educators the past 30+ years has been unbelievably successful at defining conservatives has a group that warrants no consideration.

Through ridicule and peer pressure, without any thoughtful consideration of the conservative message, they have played to the fears and have exploited the insecurities they themselves created.

While it is fun to see SNL rip on Dems, it by no means should be taken as a shift in the political sentiments of an audience that is primarily made up of people that believe Republicans where responsible for slavery.

It is true. Every second term president has been a desaster at least in modern times. 1 6-year term is needed with zero reelection for life.

In my opinion it is not.

However please address your posts to those that said that it was. But most likely they were jesting I hope:

My friends and I have an "inside joke" term for sweating so profusely that you need a towel to sop up the sweat from your forehead. We call it "needing a Dinkins towel" as he was captured wiping sweat away while testifying in Albany regarding the city budget shortfall (begging for money from upstate)...

Stock photo credit - © Bettmann/CORBIS

Caption at link for picture reads:

"2/6/1960-Albany, NY- New York Mayor David Dinkins 2/6 wipes his sweat while testifying before the joint legislative hearing on the city's budget. Dinkins faced a tough task in trying to convince legislators for more funding for the city and approval of a surcharge on items to close the budget gap."

You mean the clown that is replacing the military leadership responsible for our big boy missiles.... A clown with power is no laughing matter, but I hope you’re right and that he waddles off into the night.

I don’t think he’s capable.
