NBC pulls SNL Skit

NBC pulls SNL skit from the NBC/SNL website. The skit lampoons liberal financier George Soros and Marion and Herb Sandler, not to mention the entire Democratic Party's cover up of their part in the economic meltdown. The liberal bias over at NBC is well known, however, it would seem that the reason that NBC pulled the skit is that Herb Sandler is 'hopping mad' about it. No response from NBC as to why it was pulled.

See the original uncut video below. Many thanks to Ms. Underestimated for the .wmv file.

I trust those who faulted Sarah Palin for not answering questions in last week’s vice presidential debate will now fault Barack Obama for failing to respond to citizens’ queries. McCain also failed to answer a handful (though I think Obama was the greater offender).

Obama acted for the most part like he was running against George W. Bush. It seemed he had determined to say the “last eight years” more times than Palin had said “maverick” last week. While he tried to sound like Ronald Reagan at times expressing confidence in the American people, he forgot that the Gipper always looked forward. There were moments when Obama seemed wallowing in the past, as a depressed person wallows in self-pity.

McCain seemed too often to bring up criticisms of Obama when it might have served him better to outline his own policies. (But then again, that was perhaps the only thing which added spice to this snooze-fest.) Obama also took some cheap shots at McCain.

But, the Democrat also had his moments, emulating Clinton in trying to explain how complex policy decisions impacts the economy and citizens.

The real loser in this debate was moderator Tom Brokaw. By selecting the questions of the various participants, he made it less spontaneous, reflecting less the concerns of the average voter than the interests of the Beltway broadcaster. He should have picked the participants at random and not been allowed to pre-screen the questions.
if McCain was boring due to age, what was Obama’s excuse?

I think the debate was boring because the questions were boring and allowed the candidates to go into talking point/stump speech mode.

I thought McCain’s answers were much better and Obama spent a lot of time talking in circles over all. The only interesting question of the night Obama didn’t answer at all and McCain answered well.

I think the problem with this debate was that Brokaw overly screen the questions to the point that they were questions he wanted to ask rather than questions the public wanted to ask. I think this format stunk because it turned the townhall style debate into another newsroom moderated debate.

I think it would have been more interesting if they had avoided the vaunted undecided or uncommitted voter and gone for 1/2 of the audience partisan Obama supporters and the other half partisan McCain supporters. Screened the question for apprpriateness only, and drawn the names out of a hat. A McCain supporter gets to ask Obama a question and visa versa.

I think this would have avoided the talking point regurgitation that pretty much defined the evening and would have resulted in more interesting questions.

The debate was certainly not a true townhall meeting like the once we have seen McCain do very well in all over the country. Yes, the biggest reason why is the over screening of questions. I, as well as many others, was expecting a much better debate. I like your notion of how you would have done it differently. It certainly would have been a much more stimulating debate if it had followed that format.

I agree with ee.....it was NO TOWNHALL, DA, you're right, too. And, of course, that IS the venue McCain excels at so OF COURSE the Brokaw/debate people made sure it was a stilted, practically scripted, DEAD BORING, 'debate'.......

I don't mind mcCain taking shots at Obama if he'd just STOP smirking like "Ha, what a smart boy I AM!" after each sentence (a message I've sent the RNC site twice now..as if they care!!?) "Just accuse, don't look at the audience with that smug smirk like 'nanny nannny mnanny...'
