Saturday Night Live Pulls One Out for Hillary
(Updated to include video). Comments now closed.)
Do not miss the You Tube of Tina Fey's commentary on Saturday Night Live last night when it comes out. It was incredible. My DD has a rough transcript of the last part.
Tina Fey:I want to say something about those calling Hillary a b*tch...
Yeah, well she is...So am I, so is she (pointing at Weekend Update news host Amy Poehler.) Deal with it.
B*tches get sh*t done (Amy says yeah and starts nodding her head in rhythmn and saying more yeahs,uuh huhs and a you go girl.)
Like back in grammar school, they could have had priests teaching you but no, they had tough old nuns who sleep on cots and can hit ya and you HATE those b*tches. But the end of the school year you sure knew the capital of Vermont
So come on....Its not too late Texas and Ohio, get on board... B*tch is the new Black!
At Fey's first sentence, mentioning that Hillary was running for President, the audience started clapping. They laughed and clapped throughout. Who would have thought, an SNL audience that is not loudly pro-Obama. Maybe there's hope yet.
Also on the show during Weekend Update and very funny: Mike Huckabee. He pretended that he didn't know Republicans didn't have superdelegates who could vote for him. He said then he'd rely on miracles. When asked if he was staying in the race, he said at the right time, he'd get out with class and grace. Then he didn't leave the set when the anchors tried to prod him that his time was up. The YouTube video is up here.
Maybe McCain will implode. Maybe Obama won't pull it off. What a fun race that would be, Huckabee vs. Hillary. Of course, Republicans won't let it happen, they'll keep sending Independents to vote in Democratic primaries so Hillary doesn't get the nomination.
The Washington Times reports:
[recent] polls showed Mr. Obama was leading among independents by double digits in Texas and Ohio, the fastest-growing voting bloc in the electorate. Independents made up 22 percent of the vote in the 22 contested Democratic primaries held thus far, and Mr. Obama has won them by a margin of 64 percent to 33 percent, according to a tabulation conducted by the Associated Press.
Who's really picking our Democratic nominee? If it's the Democratic youth or African American voters, I'm okay with that. That's fair. If it's Republicans, I'm not. We'll get trounced in November. Without reliable stats to show Obama's support is from those who will for the Democrat in November, I'd say the best way to ensure Republicans stay out of our race and don't steal another election from us is for Dems to vote for Hillary to be the nominee.
As Tina Fey said, Get on board, Texas and Ohio.
