Update on SNL Incest Insult to the Palins

MEDIA MATTERS
NBC jokes: Todd Palin has sex with daughters
‘Saturday Night Live’ skit suggests Sarah’s husband guilty of incest

A week after a high-profile send-up of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on “Saturday Night Live,” the NBC comedy show returned to making fun of the Alaskan governor in a skit where New York Times reporters sought to probe the possibility Palin’s husband, Todd, was having sex with the couple’s own daughters.

“What about the husband?” asked a Times reporter during a mock assignment meeting for the paper. “You know he’s doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It’s Alaska.

The assignment editor for the Times, portrayed by actor James Franco, responded: “He very well could be. Admittedly, there is no evidence of that, but on the other hand, there is no convincing evidence to the contrary. And these are just some of the lingering questions about Governor Palin.”

The skit featured a photo of one reporter and an on-screen message that stated, “In 2009 [reporter] Howland Gwathmey Moss, V was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his Times series on unproven, yet un-disproven incest in the Palin family. Sadly, he was to die 3 months later, run over by a snow machine, driven by a polar bear.”

The final shot showed an image of a New York Times page, with headlines that included:

“While No Direct Evidence of Incest in Palin Family Emerges, Counter Evidence Remains Agonizingly Elusive” and “In a Small Alaska Town, Doubts Still Linger.”

The sketch seemed to be designed to mock how out of touch journalists from the Big Apple are when it comes to their knowledge of Alaska, with left-leaning, Manhattan-dwelling reporters mistaking a snowmobile for a “baptizing machine,” a crucifix and a NordicTrack exerciser in photographs held up for them.

Some viewers expressed outrage.

“It is time the Palin family brought out the big guns. They need to sue General Electric, NBC, ‘Saturday Night Live,'” said Al Barrs of Bascom, Fla. “This is clearly criminal and defamation of character of an entire family and state. All the above needs to be taken to their knees big time once and for all.”

“What if somebody did one with this kind of humor on Obama and his daughters?” asked Jim Cash of Chattanooga, Tenn. “What an uproar there would be. This line of humor is tasteless and moronic and about as low as they could go. There simply must be an uproar over this. We cannot let this just pass.”

NBC’s website for “Saturday Night Live” normally contains video clips of the show’s comedy routines, but, interestingly, the clip of the incest sketch was never posted online.

THE VIDEO CLIP WAS REMOVED FROM THE SITE CONTAINING THIS ARTICLE – TWO
VERSIONS HAVE BEEN REMOVED BY UTUBE.

The only thing worse than the scummy attacks on the Palins and McCains is the liberal press’ failure to call Candidate Obama on his falsehood and misrepresentations. Can you imagine if 3 McCain advisors had been involved with wrong doing at Fannie Mae, had been charged with lying to Congress, “cooking the books”, taking illegal loans, and falsifying records to obtain a bonus – What would be the press reaction. There has ben no reaction to Obama’s Advisors – Jim Johnson, Franklin Raines and Tim Howard.

Heck, there has been more coverage on Obama’s smear of McCain Campaign Manager Rick Davis – A lobbyist who has never ever been accused of wrong doing. The liberal press will trea an honest man with contempt is he is a conservatibve and excsue a felon – thief – and liar as long as he is a liberal.
