Live From NBC Its…Irony

Remember when Saturday Night Live used to be relevant? Remember when the “Not ready for prime time players” took shots at anyone regardless of who they were or their political affiliation? Remember when they took issue with Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, and GW. Bush?

SNL used to be funny and it used to parody all regardless of who they were. Make no mistake, it has always been filled with left wing liberal types (with a few exceptions) who worship at the altar of liberal orthodoxy but at least they had fun at the expense of everyone regardless of political affiliation.

Those days seem to be well behind us as NBC bows down to the messiah Obama.

This past weekend SNL scrapped a skit that poked fun at Obama for his politicizing the one year anniversary of the death of Bin Laden. The skit parodied Obama as taking credit for the kill (in reality he did little and certainly not as much as he takes credit for) and elaborated the recent trip Obama took to Afghanistan to use our troops as a photo op while marking the anniversary.

But NBC decided to scrap the skit and instead use a skit that mocked FOX News. Yes, SNL had a skit that mocked the show “Fox and Friends” personalities as clueless partisans.

Isn’t it ironic that SNL would air a skit mocking a FOX show as containing clueless partisans in order to replace a skit that mocked Obama?

In other words, by replacing the skit on Obama SNL and NBC demonstrated that it is the show with clueless partisans.

I wonder if they were even bright enough to note the irony…

Cave canem!

    No, they probably thought they were doing the “right” thing, in mocking FOX News, and the rezident is so thin- skinned that he would take the skit personally, or so the honchos at SNL probably thought.
