As much as I like seeing the Republicans getting bashed, I didn't think this skit was that funny at all. The audience didn't seem to think so either. One thing's for sure, SNL does not hold a candle to The Daily Show when it comes to political humor.
Jerome is not responsible for Alegre or Texas Darlin, my point though is that Jerome, Alegre & Texas Darlin made up a large part of MYDD.
Look I'm totally over whatever MYDD was like back in the primaries, I wouldn't be here otherwise. However, I do think that the outragoeus comments about Obama during the primaries have resulted in MYDD losing influence and more visitors compared to other blogs.
MYDD & Texasdarlin shredded any honorable reputation they had once they started up things about Obama's citizenship and other fake controversies (obama flipping off clinton, obama playing the race card, obama not being able to win the general).
MYDD went from an informative blog to a sounding board for people who did not want to accept Obama as the legitimate nominee. With that said, it's important to note that Jonathan and Todd have not been like this. Instead, the blame lies with Jerome and other diarists like Alegre and Texasdarlin.
What people don't understand is the longterm impact the Obama campaign will have for the Democratic party. All those young peeps registering for the first time as Dems will benefit the party for generations to come.
