I Made it to the End of the Clip. Smug and Self-Satisfied Doesn't necessarily Equal Humor. It Can (the younger Albert Brooks Comes to Mind) But This Was Play-to-the-Crowd Aren't-We-Edgy Paint-by-Numbers.Also Found Interesting that We Currently Have as President the Greatest Orator of All Time But There Wasn't a Speech of His That Made the Skit; Go Figure.
Each Generation is Defined By the SNL Cast it Gets in Early Adulthood. Some Still bear the Scars of Joe Piscopo.
Timing is everything.
If you like your play, you can keep your plan, comma.
I Don't Take any Particular SNL Cast Seriously Until One of its Members Flames Out and Dies Young, such as Belushi or Chris Farley.Maybe One of The Current Cast Will Volunteer.
There are plenty of complicated, lengthy, and hard to understand speeches that no one remembers. Almost all of them, actually. I guess we should all go read Focault or something.
With Obama taking a pass on the commemoration of the Gettysburg Address and this disparagement, it is pretty clear that the left is not interested in a new nation conceived in liberty nor a government by from and for the people. Rather they are driving toward an old, top-down dictatorship.
Paxil: Second Term Strength"With Paxil you’ll feel like you’re giving a speech at a college campus in 2008, or getting bin Laden all over again."
Was SNL ever funny?
betamax3000, what about Tim Kazurinski?MathMom, it was when it first came on. After the first cast left...
Sam L., Thanks. That explains it - I lived overseas for 11 years and missed it when it was new!
Is it now politically correct to portray flaming idiots as flaming queers? I'd like to know, before I pass judgment on Alec Baldwin.
"But This Was Play-to-the-Crowd Aren't-We-Edgy Paint-by-Numbers."I don't know how anyone can construe that sketch as an attempt at edginess.
He looks like the Church Lady's brother.
Entertainers are so much more interesting than dead presidents.Or more entertaining? Well, no, not even that.Perhaps it's been a long time since we had presidents who not only wrote their own speeches, but could deliver them without a TelePrompter. Or even a microphone.
Lord yes SNL used to be funny. Of course, if you put Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Jim Belushi,Gilda Radner and Jane Curtain (there were others in and out but those are the ones who imo made it great) together and don't get funny, something would be very wrong indeed. After they were gone there were flashes of greatness with Myers and Farley and Carvey and Ferrell and Rock, but never again was such an abundance of talent on SNL together.
Anyone notice the "gay slur" against Lincoln?And don't get me started on that beard, what was her name: Mary Todd?
Chevy Chase is overrated.
