Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick

Incidentally, congratulations to Amy Poehler who gave birth to a baby boy the exact Saturday after her magnificent Moose Rap. It would've been unthinkable without her.

ADDED: I was thinking of this skit just now, and I have wanted to mention something for a long while.

You know how immediately after Palin appeared on SNL, that the Left Blogosphere were in the a tizzy saying that the cast had essentially made fun of Palin to her face, and she just stood there and took it. They also suggested that Republicans were too stupid to notice, and the joke was on them since we all seemed to love the skit.

Well, actually no.

Here's why we loved it -- first, Sarah Palin was a shockingly good sport in those skits, but she got her cracks in too. Furthermore, Poehler's rap had the now instant classic, "When I say Obama you say Ayers!" line, as well as the "The Bridge ain't going no where". Lastly, when Lorne Michaels commented on Palin's appearance, he was amazingly fair to her, saying that whilst he didn't share her politics, that she was gracious and understood why she appealed to so many people.

See guys, it's like this.

When we Righties complain that media coverage was biased before, sometimes we were complaining because it just rubbed us the wrong way. All that meant previously is that we are upset that there is a sham pretense to be neutral.

But don't misunderstand -- by this, we aren't suggesting that we want media coverage to be fawningly positive. We just want it to be FAIR.

When we perceive something to be giving both sides of the aisle the same dose of hard medicine, that's okay with us. Truly.

Again, all we want is the same treatment doled out in as equal shares as possible. That's what SNL did in that show towards Palin, reinforced later by Michaels' words.

I guess we shouldn't be grateful for this, because this is the way it should be, but I think I speak for many when I say, we sure appreciated it.

    Yes we did. And I'm still grateful that you were blogging that night, giving us Californians the "live feed." That was actually a tremendous public service on your part. One day, you will reap the rewards.

  • Aww, thanks! That makes it all worth the while, Chickenlittle. :)

    I say that to Ruth Anne, Peggy, and all who were kind enough to echo such sentiments in other threads!

  • Oh yes...the MSM is pure democratic! Did you see the Palin doll being lynched outside of someone's house as a Halloween decoration? And the media thought it was so funny, but can you even imagine if that was a McCain supporter with Obama hanging, being lynched? All hell would break loose and the words racist and KKK would be thrown around and I’m sure it wouldn’t be “funny” like the liberal MSM illuminati are reporting it now!
