SNL gets it right...
Glad to see someone understands what is going on...Why is it the case that we have gotten more insightful and hard-hitting political analysis from our comedic outlets like Saturday Night Live (SNL) and Comedy Central's "Daily Show"? I guess famed writer, and fellow Missourian, Mark Twain was right about the power of satire...too bad the "Joe Six-packs" and "Pit-bull Hockey Moms" won't understand. They'll be at the Bass Pro Shop talking about how connected they feel to Palin.
"One can deliver a satire with telling force through the insidious medium of a travesty, if he is careful not to overwhelm the satire with the extraneous interest of the travesty."
