"If Saturday Night Live did a skit on incest in the Obama family, do you think the media would say, 'It's just a joke. Lighten up'?"
--Rush Limbaugh

I am not sure if the media outlets my Liberal friends have reported much on this, but it seems that the beat goes on...

"Anyone that watched Saturday's show and believed the skit in which it was suggested that there was incest in the Palin household needs to have (his) head examined," Ana Jimenez told World Net Daily. "The purpose of the joke (tacky and crude as it was, I did not care for it at all by the way) was to show how out of touch journalists are -- not an attack on the Palin household. Sheesh, get a grip!"

Tell me Dan, just when did you stop beating your wife?

How's that for tacky & crude? It is is not an attack on your household, Dan, it is just humor to show you how cruel, cold and downright mean the left has become.

That skit was nothing more than a hatchet job. You know that Al Franken has had a hand in writing those skits don't you? You know that he is a candidate for the US Senate, right? What if Fox let Rush Limbaugh write for some of their shows? The left would be apoplectic.

Franken's not doing your side any favors. He is further alienating a large portion of America from the Democratic ticket. Hateful and hurtful personal attacks like this are beginning to galvanize the right and sway the undecideds.

I thought that "Hate was not a Family Value" At least that is what someone's Volvo station wagon told me.

It's not about thin skin Dan, how can you not be disgusted and appalled at how your side of the aisle is behaving. The Democrats can't seem to help themselves. First it was all the sexist remarks aimed at Hillary, now it's Palin. What are the Democrats becoming?

I thought Franken left SNL decades ago....

OK, just checked here..http://www.io.com/~serpas/SNL/writerscroll.html . According to that, Franken hasn't written for SNL since 94. Where did you get your info, Bob?

I don't want a liberal source...I don't want a conservative source. I want an accurate source. The article you point to makes it obvious that Franken has been involved with SNL more recently than the link I posted says. Thanks for that. Was the opening skit referred to in the article the Palin incest skit?

Sorry Denny, that liberal crack was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. Not sure which skit was the opening skit, not that it matters at this point.

Al Franken ended his association with SNL in the 1990s. I actually spoke with him (I was writing for a newspaper at the time) during the 1980 election campaign when he supported independent candidate John Anderson.

Bill, he ended his EMPLOYMENT with SNL in the 1990's. When you say "ended his association" you infer he severed ties and has not communicated since.

Here's the latest rumor I heard this morning:

Sarah Palin to appear on SNL this Saturday...

And the beat goes on...

http://elections.foxnews.com/2008/09/25/congressman-warns-jews-blacks-to-beware- of-palin/

Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings on Wednesday warned two minority groups to beware of Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”

Hastings, who is black and a Democrat, made the comment in Florida at a panel discussion hosted by the National Jewish Democratic Council. The group recently criticized Palin’s invitation to an anti-Iran rally held during Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinajad’s visit to New York to speak before the U.N. General Assembly.

Hastings was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race.

“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” Hastings told the audience, which burst into laughter and applause, according to individuals present.

Palin spokeswoman Maria Comella declined to comment. The Republican Jewish Coalition strongly condemned Hastings’ statements.

“Rep. Hastings stooped to the worst kind of divisive politics yesterday,” RJC Executive Director Matt Brooks said in a written statement. “Hastings’ unconscionable remarks do nothing but sow seeds of fear and divide people. There should be no place in our country for this sort of political discourse. We can constructively disagree on the issues without denigrating others.”

Other members of the panel were Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen, who is Jewish and represents a mostly black district; Alabama congressman Arthur Davis, who is black; and Peter Edelman, a law professor at Georgetown University who was a legislative assistant to Robert Kennedy.

Davis denounced Hastings’ comments.

“Alcee Hastings is a friend and I know Alcee well enough to know that he uses provocative humor to make a point. In this instance, however, I didn’t like his comments when I heard them and they don’t sound any better reading them in print,” he said in a written statement sent to FOXNews.com.

“I have repeatedly said that while Sarah Palin’s ideology and her thin resume are legitimate issues, it is a great mistake for Democrats to ridicule her cultural roots,” Davis added. “I don’t know how many Americans strip moose, but a lot of the ones I know tote guns and the Democratic Party had better win enough of those gun toters if we are to be successful.”

Hastings, a former federal judge, was impeached and removed from the bench in 1989 for perjury and corruption. Elected to Congress in 1992, he supported Hillary Clinton during the primaries until she conceded the race.

Historically, Jews have overwhelmingly voted Democratic, but the McCain campaign is vigorously courting that constituency as Obama has fought off false Internet rumors that he is a Muslim with an anti-Jewish agenda.

Obama also came under fire in April for describing small-town Americans during a closed San Francisco fundraiser as people who are “bitter” over job losses and who “cling to their guns and religion.”

Hastings’ office and the Obama campaign did not immediately respond for this story.

As I've said many times, there are idiots on both sides of the aisle, I'm afraid.

Agreed, but it appears the Left has gone pro.

No, Bob, each side is as bad as the other from my perspective. It's just that the right gives the left more opportunities to make idiots of themselves! ;)

She writes for the Orlando Sentinel. Her column is all over the place, even here in liberal Eugene. She is well known, widely syndicated, and often quoted....I'm kinda surprised you haven't run across her before. She often pisses me off considerably, so you oughta like her. ;)

I don't read print media anymore. By the time things are printed and delivered, I have already read the stories online. Frankly, I don't know how newspapers stay in business.
