    ...semi-good Trump impersonation and (my fav) the looked-like-they-both-enjoyed-it Someone to Lean On song.  Humor & politics can mix :)

    That Hillary has a great sense of humor and a race with Trump could bring it out.  This is what I'm talking about.

    Please oh please oh please

    Love you, J, but have to disagree. This is empty personality politics of the highest order. This kind of sh*t is a big reason why the country has such a profoundly sick relationship with politics and its supposed political leaders. This is bizarro celebrity media conformity and issue-ignoring of a very weird sort. "I can go on SNL, but I can't debate my fellow nominees morning noon and night to obliterate the Republican nonsense." Pfft. She is acting far too entitled to the nomination to me, and has evidenced what we need the most and don't hear from any candidates, Bernie included: genuine political imagination.

    I'm not sold on Bernie, I'm not sold on Hillary, I'm not sold on anyone. And since we seem more interested in playing elect the homecoming queen/king, when we should be out in the streets every day willing to sacrifice our lives to make the country better, I'm sorry again, I just don't see it.

    We have to be willing to die in the streets right here at home, my fellow liberals. We have to line up against the cops and the rednecks and the pols, and we have to be willing to die.
    But as it stands, we're not, myself included. Plain and simple. We yap. And yap and yap. We do very little else.

    Dude, as a friend, lighten up. Seriously. (none / 0) (#6)

    Today we agree.

    I like the candidates to be human, (none / 0) (#9)

    not way up on some pedestal, where they can be above the messy fray the rest of us live with and in.

    SNL humanizes them, shows us they aren't afraid to just be regular people.  I like seeing how they respond to this particular spotlight: can they be in the moment, let go of their inhibitions and just have fun?

    Not to mention that I like the idea that somewhere, Donald Trump was watching and a vein hidden by his cotton-candy "hair" was throbbing.

    I love you Dadler, love your passion and intensity, but sometimes, you know, a cigar is just a cigar, and it's okay to laugh.

    was just what Mrs. Clinton needs right now.  With the "Committee to Lower Clinton Polls" on the well-deserved ropes, Mrs. Clinton took an opportunity to show her sense of humor--and timing. effacing and self-effacing.  

    that was hilarious (none / 0) (#10)

    & an ironic take on the question "Who would you rather have a beer with?"

    that said, i'm not willing to die for a more perfect country, unlike Dadler, but i do understand his disgust with our venal politicians & our trivial, head-in-the-sand politics

    the Bush/Obama presidency: 15+ years of incompetence, corruption, preening, & (especially since 2009) a free pass from the craven, besotted MSM

    Is a presidential race with no Y chromosomes possible?

    Koch brothers, other wealthy GOP mega donors warm to Carly Fiorina

    I have never believed it would be Marco.  I just don't.  Carly makes a lot of sense from their point of view.  Considering the choices.  Anyone with a brain knows any of the men would lose to Hillary.  At least Carly would neutralize the "first woman" thing.
