KOmmies and DUmmies Hate Hilarious SNL Skit
I can't get enough watching it. The skit portrays the press conference with Obama and Chinese President Hu (Hu's on first?). I must have seen it at least a dozen times today and still can't get enough of it. It is falling down laughing FUnnie!!! However, be warned. Some of the sexual content has disturbed a few conservatives. Not me. Those references fit PERFECTLY into the skit.
Meanwhile the KOmmies and DUmmies are quite upset with the skit because it beautifully skewers not only Obama but wasteful government programs as well. You can see how upset the KOmmies are in this THREAD, "SNL Takes on President Obama's Economic Policy." Meanwhile the DUmmies are worried about the public perception of Obama's socialism because of this skit in this THREAD, "SNL Review: Honeymoon's Over." So enjoy the fall down FUnnie SNL skit with the added bonus of the KOmmies and DUmmies getting enraged over it in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who already knows Ben Burch will love it despite its political orientation, is in the [barackets]:
SNL Takes on President Obama's Economic Policy
[Suddenly the KOmmies are going to hate SNL.]
Fred Armisen's impression still blows, but the tone of the sketch is still, how you say, scathing. And, rare for an SNL skit this season, it's actually pretty funny.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
I wonder if this skit is a reflection of the national mood. Obama's polling below 50 per cent in some polls, and people are still very obviously very uneasy about the economy. Things will turn around, but until they do, expect more sketches and comedy pieces (on The Daily Show) like this.
[And expect outrage from your fellow KOmmies.]
What I have heard is that China's got an awful environment. It's really toxic in some places (air, water). There are hundreds of millions of smokers in China. Lung disease is already a big problem in many of the large cities but with the added burden of smoking, things are going to get worse.
[Be careful what you say about the Chinese. We owe them almost a trillion bucks and they are ticked off because the debt will be repaid in increasingly worthless Obamabucks. I can't blame the Chinese president in this skit for being more than a little upset with The One.]
This is what SNL is missing. China did not develop itself. Wall Street developed China as a exercise in labor arbitrage.
[A FUnnie skit and this KOmmie responds with a humorless economic lecture.]
I did take a look at the sketch here just now, and I don't know, but is there any modicum of respect for this president.
[Somehow methinks you weren't the least bit worried about this respect bit when Bush was president.]
SNL should really stick to making fun of Conservatives. Their Fox News skit last week was awesome. Making fun of our eloquent, intelligent Pres who is doing the best he can to fix a very broken country is just not funny.
[This KOmmie is only satisfied with one-sided humor. Make FUn of Bush: HILARIOUS!!! Make FUn of Obama: NOT FUnnie.]
don't mind SNL taking equal opportunity pot shots, but at least make us laugh. I thought this was pretty weak, and if we're not laughing in recognition, it isn't making much of a point with viewers.
[You thought it was weak? I could watch it two DOZEN times and still not quit laughing.]
or him to continue to talk about the deficit as if it is something that needs to be paid back is quite disheartening.
[You want to be the one who tells the Chinese that Obama should weasel out of the debt we owe them? And now on to the DUmmies...]
SNL Review: Honeymoon's Over
[More accurately: Worship service over.]
The rape metaphor is getting a LOT of use these days. Obama portrayed as a rapist. Hmmm.
[Ben Burch fantasizes. And I know which parts of the skit he is replaying over and over.]
SNL has been making unfunny jokes about Obama since 2007. There were never any gloves to start with.
[Really? Until recently it has been mostly hero worship all the way.]
I thought this one was really disgusting. Not at all funny. President Obama has been doing great things with his international diplomacy. He has had to tread a very careful line with the People's Republic of China because they bought up a lot of the debt that the Bush Gang stacked up with their reckless, expensive wars of choice, and their deregulated finance sector swapping bundles of toxic assets that we had to bail out.
[The One must never be mocked.]
So the HA HA look at China sticking out its ass for him to kiss sketch was really grotesque. Not funny at all. I had to turn it off part way. Watched a minute or two to see if it got anywhere but no-- it just seemed like jackass humor. And frankly, it seemed like a right wing point to me-- look at our president kissing the ass of foreign officials-- he should be bombing them instead! The right wing wants the USA to have an imperial presidency, bombing everyone instead of wasting time with all that wimpy diplomacy.
[Um...I think it was for a bit more than just kissing.]
Or it could even have been trying to make the opposite point-- Hey China wants us to kiss their ass but President Obama didn't. Hey he's cool. China knows full well they don't have to get President Obama to kiss their ass; previous administrations had already done that. While some basic international facts are not understood by many Americans, thanks to the Foxification of our news, the rest of the world knows China owns most of our national debt so we are beholden to them and have to walk a very delicate line.
[Again, a bit more than mere kissing. You definitely are NOT Ben Burch.]
Because either way-- "Look at our President-- he doesn't kiss anyone's ass" -- or -- "Look at our President having to kiss ass in China" -- either way is broad-stroke jackass stuff. It undercuts our president's efforts to demonstrate to the world that we have some reasonable people who understand our position as one nation in the global community and are interested in negotiating our future with respect for all parties.
[This DUmmie must be the life of the party...NOT! Plus he doesn't even get it about the bending over bit. Please have Ben Burch explain it to you.]
They don't base it on any facts just made up shit that they think is suppose to be funny.
[Sorry but what makes this skit hilarious is precisely because it is strongly based on facts. And now I think I'll watch it again.]
