TINA FEY & SNL LUV HILLARY! BITCH IS THE NEW BLACK ! (W/ 4 VIDS)

Tonights Saturday Night Live opened with a devastating opening skit about how in the tank the news media is for Obama and how totally unfair it is to Hillary. This will become a big deal inside the media "village". I live in DC and know that every single political reporter and pundit fool watches every SNL during election time and all saw or will see this. They were or will be shocked, I mean quite shocked, to find out that THEY WERE THE ONES BEING RIDICULED.
The DC Press corps REALLY doesn't like being criticized and that's why only trusted fellow members of the press "club" are ever allowed to fill one of the few MSM slots alloted for "press critics". That keeps them pretty much toothless. Ever notice that?
We pretty much have the same national press corps today that we had in 2000. These are the people who trashed Gore and loved Bush, but now they trash Hillary and love Obama. It's simple really. Through their bias and false coverage in 2000, they selected the last President and once again, through their bias and false coverage, they want to select the next one too.
SNL: THE CNN HILLARY - OBAMA DEBATE
But, one thing that will really set the talking head's and the "media elite" all spinning around even more confused than usual will be the surprising thing that happened during last nights SNL news segment.
That's when guest host Tina Fey did a very funny commentary on the Weekend Update that shockingly was also very pro Hillary. Even though some of NBC's cable news stars want Hillary to give up and quit, some of NBC's networks stars want her to fight back and win!
SNL: TINA FEY WEEKEND UPDATE COMMENTARY
FEY: And finally, the most important Womens News item there is, we have our first serious female presidential candidate in Hillary Clinton.Then they high-fived, or at least I'd like to think they did...
And yet, women have come so far as feminists, that they dont feel obligated to vote for a candidate just because shes a woman.
Women today feel perfectly free to make whatever choice Oprah tells them to.
Which raises the question, why are people abandoning Hillary for Obama?
Some say that theyre put off by the fact that Hillary cant control her husband, and that we would end up with co-presidents.
Cause that would be terrible, having two intelligent, qualified people working together to solve problems. Ugh.
Why would you let Starsky talk to Hutch? I wanna watch that show, Starsky.
You know, what is it, America? What is it, are you weirded out that theyre married?
Cause I can promise you that they are having exactly as much sex with each other as George Bush and Jeb Bush are.
Then there is the physical scrutiny of her physical appearance.
Rush Limbaugh, the Jeff Conaway of right wing radio, said that he doesnt think America is ready to watch their president quote turn into an old lady in front of them. Really?
They didnt seem to mind when Ronald Reagan did that.
Maybe what bothers me the most is that people say that Hillary is a bitch.
Let me say something about that: Yeah, she is.
And so am I and so is this one. (pointing to Amy Poehler)
POEHLER: Yeah, deal with it.
FEY: Know what? Bitches get stuff done.
(Amy says yeah and starts nodding her head, together they get in a rhythm, with Amy saying in response, more yeahs, uh huhs, with a 'you go girl' style)
Like back in grammar school,
they could have had priests teaching you but, no,
they had those tough old nuns who slept on cots
and who could hit ya and you HATED those bitches
But at the end of the school year
you sure KNEW the capital of Vermont!
So COME ON Texas and Ohio
Get on board, it's not too late!...
BITCH IS THE NEW BLACK!
THIS WAS BIG HILL FOLKS, BIG!
THIS IS TINA'S MONOLOGUE, NOTICE IT'S RIFF ON "YES, I CAN" DO IT!, COINCIDENCE?
FUNNIEST PART YET! An Obamacrat chat site complaining of, get this, a repeated pro Hillary "media bias", is trying to organize a protest of SNL. Guess the head "chatter" missed the whole point of the opening skit or he doesn't have a clue what the word "ironic" means. My guess, probably both.
The pro-Hillary SNL segmentHa-ha-ha...to infinity.
Wow, Tina Fey (who I normally love) just royally screwed Obama on live television. During the last couple minutes of the last Weekend Update segment, she basically gave what amounted to a Hillary endorsement -- played on everyone's sympathies (which is always Hillary's biggest vote getter), made a defacto "feminist call to action", made all kinds of excuses for Clinton, and said "Come on Texas and Ohio, get on board, it's not too late!"
Apparently the demise of the Fairness Doctrine in the 80's allows TV stars to issue blatant and unbalanced appeals for people's votes now?
SNL has picked on one politician or another fairly equally plenty of times in the past, during skits -- but I've never seen them do a "news" segment that was entirely just someone blatantly stumping for a candidate.
I wonder if they plan on balancing that segment before March 4th? I bet if there was enough of an uproar, they'd have to. Man, this was just as bad as Letterman having Hillary on the night before Super Tuesday.
Update: Anyone who saw the show and wants to register their opinion of Tina's on-air live endorsement of Clinton (hey Tina, whatever happened to going on the campaign trail with them instead?) -- can do so on NBC's community forums, as well as by calling or writing NBC directly, obviously. Maybe if they get a flood of (polite) flak for that nonsense, they'll balance it out next Saturday (which would be even more effective for 3/4) with an equal endorsement of Obama.
Fave comments so far.
From DU, a faux outraged Obama supporter tried to stir up a ruckus and said he "guessed it's okay to start referring to Hillary as a bitch, now. I guess those who do call her this shouldn't expect any complaints about it. As an Obama supporter, I can totally see how this is offensive. Since when is a woman, who gets shit done and is strong, is supposed to be called a bitch? I guess they are trying to "own" the word. Whatever.":
Two commentors responded:
They weren't "trying" to own the word. On national TV this evening, they told us all that they DID own it. They were taking it back, defining it to suit their purposes, and slapping whiners who "don't get it" across the face with their new, improved, definition. And then repeating it, for those who didn't get it the first time. I am not arguing with those ladies! Bitch IS the new BLACK! Yes, ma'am, Ms. Fey, whatever you say! I trust her to get things done!
I thought it was brilliant. So did the rest of the audience watching with me here.
It was the best POSSIBLE endorsement of Clinton I've seen thus far.
Two ladies in my house were on their feet hollering in approval. They weren't insulted in the slightest. They were...empowered.
