    McCain advisor Carly Fiorina announced today that the SNL skit starring Tina Fey as Sarah Palin was "sexist" and "demeaning". As she went on, it became apparent that her objection was primarily due to the fact that the vice presidential candidate had been depicted as being lightweight and lacking substance.

    The fact that the dialogue was based heavily on Sarah's interview with "Charlie, Charlie, Charlie, Gibson" where she specifically referenced being able to see Russia from Alaska, and did not understand what the Bush Doctrine was, was not mentioned. Nor was the fact that, in the skit, Hillary Clinton was lampooned as being obsessed about her looks and bitter about her loss in the primary. Oh, and Carly, did you notice that the skit was about sexism?

    Truth-based humor is funny, guys. Lighten up. Or, more likely, doth thee simply protest too much?

    Carly Fiorina! She is very qualified to speak here given the great job she did of running HP into the ground!

    Celebrity parody doesn't work unless they're kinda spot on. Not sure how sexist the skit is considering it was probably written by other women.

    SNL making fun of Sarah Palin????

    Oh my, paws and whiskers. The nerve of those comedians!

    Few groups in modern times have been more vocal, opportunisitic (and hypocritical) about portraying themselves as victims than today's crop of conservatives.

    Pull up any right wing radio show, news rag or website and you'll quickly learn that right wingers have been victimized by:

    Hollywood and the so-called "liberal" media
    "activist" judges
    secular humanists
    the socialist intelligentsia elite
    leftist professors
    Darwinists
    land use planners
    the ACLU
    taxes
    the Clintons
    environmentalists
    the United Nations
    Feminists
    gays
    immigrants


    So, SNL is only the latest in a string of aggressors to deliver a vicious blow to downtrodden, powerless conservatives.
