I don’t want to come off as a Palin defender here… But I watched tonight’s Saturday Night Live with anticipation of some political/election humor. Tonight was the season premier, and it started off promising with a Hillary-Palin press conference… But then Weekend Update turned into a slam Sarah Palin segment. I expected plenty of fodder against Obama and McCain being thrown around… Wrong! Not a mention or either candidate.
Apparently making fun of Palin is instant comedy gold.
Poor Micheal Phelps… I’ll bet this was one audience that his Mom was not that proud to be sitting in!
Word of advice… Find some writers. Otherwise the show will degenerate to fart noises and laugh tracks.
