SNL Off The Mark On Obama

I don't watch Saturday Night Live. I use to watch it back in the day, it could be really funny and it has launched the careers of numerous very talented comedians (my distant vicarious brush with SNL fame was that my late husband lived about 4 houses down the street from Bill Murray's family home in Wilmette IL). I was really turned off from SNL sometime in the mid eighties when they did a skit with Burt Reynolds. The skit was about a couple awestruck by Reynolds celebrity and giving him their two teenage daughters! Now that's a knee slapper!?

I have seen some of their political skits, some politicians they could do better than others. I don't think the guy who impersonates Obama has quite captured him. The skit that SNL did the other night about his non-accomplishments was a little off the mark. I think that most of the SNL cast and writers should be happy with his accomplishments so far.

They shouldn't be to hard on him for not closing down Gitmo. He stopped the inhumane treatment of terrorists and even had some sent to the beautiful beaches of Bermuda. Rich Hollywood liberals don't really care about anything but their kind of social agenda anyway. With this they should be happy with the President, look at the people he has appointed to places of influence.

Take for example Kevin Jennings the Office of Safe Schools. Why does this position exist in the first place? To make schools safe from kids who plan to shoot up the school? From gangs? From drugs? From sexual predators? Oh, I'm sorry all sex is safe as long as you use a condom as Mr. Jennings told a fifteen year old student who had confided in him that an older man was having sex with him.

And there is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission appointment, Chai Feldblum that should make the social intelligentsia as proud as punch.This woman enthusiastically indorses same sex marriage in fact all kinds of marriage is great with her like polygamy. Its all good because all sex is good. Whats really important is to change the "American work place and revolutionize social mores".

I may be mistaken but I thought we already had "the sexual revolution" as is evident by the wide spread epidemic of sexually transmitted diseases and out of wedlock pregnancy. What social mores is she thinking about?

  1. Hmm, well we do not have rampant necrophilia or many marriage licenses issued for human-dog or human-horse relationships, so there is a long way to go in our "social mores". But first is probably middle aged men and young boys?
