So...who saw Sarah Palin on SNL tonight? What did you think?
It seemed to me that in the Weekend Update Poehler rap, they were openly mocking her to her face, and she was the only one who didn’t get the joke. I think the opening sketch she got the digs and was playing along and being a good sport, but I think she was too busy debasing herself to suck up to anyone who might give her brownie points for being a good sport to realize that they were laughing directly in her face. I actually had a hard time watching it, it felt like I was watching them shoot puppies in a basket. And I’m not so sure, but it also seems to me that having every other skit be about how bad the economy is, and then having some really tasteless skits (like Brolin picking up on a very pregnant Poehler in a biker bar, or MacGruber shooting a ping pong ball out his ass) would not exactly make her conservative base feel all warm and tingly about her being on the show. What were your thoughts?
