SNL is getting some heat for their digs at the GOP side. But there is no mention of the long skit that parodied the media’s treatment of Palin - portraying them as treating her very unfairly and being out of touch with anything other than Manhattan. The McCain skit getting particular note as Al Franken apparently contributed some to it.
Does a comedy show (no digs needed about whether or not they are still funny enough to be called comedy) need to be “up the middle”?
Was SNL up the middle with two political skits one friendly to the GOP ticket and one not?
Is it too much bias to take ideas from an alum who is running for a different office than one directly involved in the skit?
My take: comedy shows can be as biased as they want to be but this episode is notably even handed. And while it would be notable if they were making fun of Norm Coleman, taking ideas about the Presidential race is fair for Franken to add to.
