I’m 53. In 1975 when this show was new and fresh, it was funny and hit and cutting edge zeit giest that no one had the figs to do in the last vestiges of the Nixon administration.
I was 16 at the time and at the age where I didn’t want to be caught dead staying at home on a Saturday night, but this show was so funny and innovative, I didn;t care. I could always leave at midnight (CST)
But a few weeks ago, when staying in on a Saturday night because I simply have no desire NOT to, I watch a few skits on SNL and then realized that I have outgrown this show. I sat there and shook my head not getting the references, or the star of the featured singer named Chiconro or Aflac or Rony Rah Rah or some shit. I was reminded of watching the earlier SNL’s shows with my mom and dad and how in the reflection of our Curtis Mathis console, I saw that vapid look in their eyes that silently screamed, Huh????? when Chevy Chase made a thinly veiled blow job joke.
Wow, I thought. I’ve finally become my parents.
Then I yelled at kids to get off my lawn, had dinner at 4:30 and screamed at the dadburn fool who couldn’t guess the right vowel in the clue on “Wheel of Fortune”.
And then I peed a little in my chair…through my K-Mart Jaclyn Smith one size fits all floral house dress.
No doubt that parody struck bone. The Bullshitter in Chief was here in Richmond Saturday to (officially – all the previous travel was Official Business, yannow) kick off his 2012 campaign. He spoke to a hall full of mushbrains and faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University, and unfuckingbelievably hammered, I mean absolutely hammered, that he got OBL, and implied we had nothing to fear anymore from jihadis, because He got Osama, all by Himself.
What a loathesome POS.
The scary thing is that the hall roared with approval.

mocked Fox News personalities by portraying them as clueless partisans
looks like NBC is mocking itself as cluelessly partisant

I caught it on H/A and it sucked anyway. So what. SNL IS NOT the the program it once was.
School full of mush brains—- where else would be go to get his hit of applause? The sound of it gives him the high he got from drugs. He’s addicted to it. Watch him– the more they applaud the louder he yells and gets all —excited– He loves that sound!! He’s like the wheeeee piggy—
