I mostly think SNL has been terrific with its political satire this season. Except, that is, for last night's open, which blew. I'm not sure that the first two minutes were even satire. Yea, the Republicans did vote against the stimulus package, mostly because it's a sucky bill. And Obama's press conference was a head scratcher of sorts ... he seemed to be more interesting in reliving the campaign than governing. Oh well ...

Agree Nick. Even though I find myself on a bizarre liberal pilgrimage - wandering further and further from the Republican party - last night's opening SNL skit was embarrassingly partisan.

One wonders how the SNL writers will balance their natural desire to skewer those in power with their clear preference of party and policy.

And - it wasn't even funny... One can forgive a one-sided rip job if it's at least a thigh slapper...

It wasn'[t funny at all. It just plain sucked. They had a good spoof on pelosi and reid last week, but they've struggled to figure out how to poke fun at Obama.
