Burning question of the day

with 5 comments

Jt’s the question dominating the political scene: When will Tina Fey be back on “Saturday Night Live“?

Also… I hear there’s some kind of debate tonite.

  1. You should say “debate.” McCain is too much of a gentleman to bring up the serious issues with Obama’s character.

  2. In my opinion, a gentleman would address Obama directly rather than attack him personally when he’s not there to respond — but we won’t expect that politics makes for gentlemen.

    I kind of expect McCain to bring up these “character issues” tonight. And then I expect him to drop more in the polls because the majority of Americans find these attacks repetitive and ugly (also, finds them baseless and misleading).

  3. Oh you two with your political bantering 😀

    What I know for happened in one instance… Obama voted down a troop funding bill because it had no timetable to it. McCain voted one down because it had a time table in it.

    What does the McCain camp do? They put Cindy McCain on the mic and have her say that Obama voted to defund her son.

    Honestly, I’m beginning to think McCain’s campaign strategists are a bunch of Snidely Whiplash clones wearing all black and stove pipe hats with think curlique mustaches and they sit around twirling them in their fingers saying “Say that he personally de-funded your son. The voters will never know! Mwahahahaha” And they all laugh and laugh and laugh.

    What’s even weirder is I don’t think McCain is like this at all, so how these comic book villains got a hold of his campaign and took control of him is beyond me.

    He’s saying he’s “bringing it to Obama” and pledging to “kick his you-know-what”. We’ll see if he does either. I’m actually hoping to see some real Straight Talk from McCain and not the same old negative campaign sound bytes, but I’m sure I’ll be as disappointed.

  4. Getting back to the question at hand: I believe SNL should be retired. It’s lasted much too long. Tina Fey is good, but her impersonation of Sarah Palin (and Lorne Michael’s shameful trotting her out because of ratings; as if he needed more money) is too painful to watch. I loathe Palin, but for a show to try to influence an election is even more loathesome.

  5. The show has its ups and downs over the years. It’s really hard to top the original cast . Mostly now, the skits go on so long you just start feeling vaguely uncomfortable for the actors who have to continue the skit for another five minutes….. ten minutes after it was funny.
