Not Funny

To the writers of Saturday Night Live,


I thought the first Sarah Palin sketch was pretty funny ... you know ... the one with Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton. I got quite a kick out of it. I thought you should be commended on your equal opportunity mocking. You didn't just take shots at the Republican candidate, but were fair.

UNTIL ...

the last couple of weeks. The kicker was last night. The debate sketch was not even funny. It was quite stupid ... of course, only making McCain look bad, not your precious Obama.

And, Amy Poehler, I really like you. You're funny. But, the weekend update was also all one-sided comedy. It was so bad that my husband and I, who are huge fans of the show, actually were disgusted and turned the channel. We couldn't watch anymore.

So, if you're not going to play fair, please stick to this kind of stuff. This is what you call FUNNY.

I'm headed to the beach. See you all on Monday!

Happy weekend!

Have a great time on your weekend!!

Since I was in HS when SNL became a hit, it is just not the same as it was then!

You know what this blog needs? More cowbell!

On a serious note, you're totally right about SNL.

I am usually in bed when SNL is on - unless I am blogging. It is a shame there is one sided bashing! If they are going to bash, they should bash both side - I kmow the skits are meant to be funny, but the fun should be spread around equally.

Have a great time at the beach.

I heart Will Ferrell.

Have a great weekend at the beach! You know that we all need a "little more cow bell" in our lives. Another favorite was the ultimate cheerleaders and Mary Catherine "Super Star". They just don't make me laugh like they used to.

I totally agree. My husband and I watched last night and turned it off - it was pretty sad. Have fun at the beach!

I agree with the skits - but really, the media is showing their liberalism in this election IMO!

Classic! More Cow Bell!!!!!!

Oh man do I remember this. I really miss Will Ferrall on the show. I enjoyed this so much I watched it twice! I needed to laugh today.

I missed it last night,but I have no trouble believing that it was biased. Boo.

Have an awesome weekend, Mama Belle!
