SNL skewered Hillary Clinton over her losses to Bernie Sanders last night.

You know I seem to remember a certain conservative Trump supporter bitching about the negative way that SNL portrays conservatives.

I will assume that she simply missed all of the Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Hillary Clinton parodies of the nineties. Or the Obama parodies that have been a staple for the last eight years now.

And you can count on Kate McKinnon to have many more opportunities to put on her Hillary Clinton wig in the months to come, not to mention her job security if Clinton wins the White House.

  2. I posted a comment about Hilary's not whinig, and screaming about sexism on Breitbart. I deleted it right away. I'm not up to dealing with those crazies today.

    If SNL parodies Hillary, it is funny to both the left and right viewers. But if they parody Palin, they are the lamestream liberal media, unfairly attacking and mocking, according to the right. The c4p crowd still bitches and moans about Tina Fey's impersonation of their Queen.

    1. Anonymous6:39 PM

      Right now Tina Fey is the last thing on their minds as they work together to find out who rigged the WY vote against Trump- because that's the only way he could lose. Those kooks haven't evolved or learned anything since the day RAM created her little fansite.

    It's going to be the most fun after "Mrs. I believe the whitehousebelongs to me" actually doesn't get elected. I look forward to that!

    Feel the Bern!

      And you will ;) when you finally figure out that BerNie's not a democrat, he's a socialist.

    2. Anonymous10:22 PM

      And when they parody Sanders they are in the tank for Hillary. You should have seen the comments on RS when Larry David did. Whew!

    3. @ 6:43 -- Whether you like it or not, socialism is back in fashion and it is gaining support among America’s youth. A recent YouGov survey found that 43 percent of respondents under the age of 30 had a favorable view of socialism. Only 32 percent had a favorable view of capitalism.

      Besides, Sanders is not a socialist, he is a democratic socialist -- BIG difference.

      barabara - Bernie is not a Democrat. AND no "youth" are even showing up in large #s to vote yet - not compared to 2008.

    I didn't think it was very funny but then I only tuned in to see Russell Crowe because I was recording him for my BFF.

    Will the Democratic presidential primary implode like the Republican primary?

    It was bound to happen. While the two major candidates left in the Democratic Party presidential primaries were giving the semblance of being nice to each other, it had to come to a boil.

    Many claim that the differences between the policies of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are minimal. As such, they argue, coalescing around the “only outcome” would be a foregone conclusion and if Bernie Sanders plays nice, that would be the case.

    The delegate math for Bernie Sanders is next to impossible barring a Hillary Clinton implosion or the materialization of the political revolution Sanders is attempting. Sanders’ recent wins, including the near-record turnout in Wisconsin, may be giving him hope that the spark is about to hit gasoline-soaked hay.

    The Democratic race was supposed to be a formality. Bernie Sanders was supposed to be an unelectable Democratic socialist with enough of a following to keep things interesting. He was supposed to split the vote of other Democrats who dared to run to protect the candidate “real” Democrats wanted to coalesce around. He accomplished the latter.

    The problem is that one never knows at what point a stressed electorate will throw conventional wisdom to the wind. Is the American electorate at a tipping point?

    It’s clear that Republicans have already tipped. The reality is that they went over the cliff with the election of President Barack Obama, and the representatives they send to Congress and state legislatures prove it. Their two presidential frontrunners prove it. Anyone who believes the Republican establishment can reign in the horses has not engaged their grassroots.

    It’s easy to see why the Democratic establishment thought that even a flawed candidate could easily win and history could be made: The Democrats could elect America's first woman president.

    But the status quo is not as formidable as it used to be. Fewer people get scared by propaganda. A plurality of the populace no longer believes the traditional mainstream media. And while money in politics is still important, both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump redefined its sources.

    Trump proved the fungibility of money as he used the media to get $2 billion of free coverage. With his record-breaking crowdsourcing, Sanders proved that message and sincerity have value.

    Hillary Clinton has to be wondering if her party will tip as the Republican Party did. From a probability standpoint, it’s unlikely. From a mathematical point of view, it is still possible.

    Clinton sharpened the scalpel. She...

    1. Another article are Hillary's truth-bending (at best), political pandering at worst... and her vision vs. pragmatism problem.

      "In the end, the problem of pragmatism is really a problem of accountability. By stressing the process of pragmatism, the focus is on the person who drives it forward.

      "But there's nothing within pragmatism that tells us anything about vision and goals. If we don't have a clear idea of where Hillary is headed, pragmatically or not, how do we hold her accountable? And why do we think she will resist the pull of political opportunism?

      This election is not about pragmatism versus idealism. Everyone is forced to be pragmatic when trying to get things done and everyone has ideals.

      Rather, it's about holding leaders accountable to their vision and having confidence that they will remain true to it. Pragmatism is not a vision and embellishments do not fill us with confidence.

      Young people have figured this out. Sanders must hope that their parents will as well."

    2. Another article discussing why Hillary is perceived as untrustworthy --

      "This is why people don’t trust Hillary: How a convenient reversal on gun control highlights her opportunism.

      "Clinton's campaign recently hit Bernie on the one issue where she resides to his left: Guns. But she didn't always"

    3. Anonymous6:07 AM

      Thank you for this link, Barbara. This article puts to rest the smear that if you think Clinton is untrustworthy, you've bought into right wing talking points. Clinton is like a tree in the wind, changing her positions depending on what's politically advantageous for her. This is why she needs noise machines at fundraisers: she says different things to different people.

      All the Berners are hurting - truth is setting in. Bernie is burnt toast.

      Hey, Berners, if Hillary is so bad, why did Sanders vote for her confirmation as Sec. of State AND praise her on the job??

    5. Anonymous9:12 AM


      We're not "hurting" we're just pointing out that Hillary has some flaws that her supporters are unwilling to see. No biggie if Bernie does get the nod, we don't always get the candidate that we want to vote for. Won't be the first time many of us have abstained from voting for POTUS if we didn't like the candidate.

    6. Anonymous11:05 AM

      9:12 - I hope you do abstain then, hon. Your personal purity politics are way more important than the Supreme Court, right?

      I will be voting for the candidate the smartest Democrat supports - Hillary Clinton, who is supported by our president, Barack Obama.

    O/T KS Secretary of State Bill Kobach advised Trump on his border wall plan.

    As if Kobach has any credentials for doing that kind of thing...

    Bernie's poll numbers are already cratering thanks to his multiple meltdowns and pants on fire lies.
    Oh well. The dude turned out to be just another phony politico, milking poor college students out of their last ten bucks.

    1. Anonymous9:20 PM

      He reminds me of SP when she ran an anti-establishment campaign. She fleeced her folliwers. She also too was a career politician. All of her businesses didn't do well and then she got her first paycheck as mayor of Wasilla... Hope we learned from that mistake. Hey, USA...wake up! BS and his wife are in it for themselves not the country or any kind of true change. They are unqualified - just like SP!

    2. Anonymous1:53 AM

      IMO, Bernie and his wife are not like ol' Sara(h) and 'have you seen Todd?' on any levels.


    3. Anonymous4:21 AM

      @ 9:20 PM - The difference between Palin and Sanders is like day and night. He has a long history of actually serving the people he represented. Sarah, not so much.

    4. Anonymous5:27 AM

      "Bernie's poll numbers are cratering"
      Biggest delusional, pants-on-fire statement ever. Sanders has cut Clinton's lead in NY from 38% to 18% in 3 weeks according to Emerson. In PA from 25% to 6% in 3 weeks. In CA from 11% to 6%.

      What's true is it's Clinton's poll numbers that are falling off the cliff. They're scrambling so certainly their internal polls show something even worse. Can't wait to see this week's numbers after her subway fail and Bill's epic gaffe with the BLM people.

      Bernie cannot catch up. His peeps have already missed the registration deadline for New York, and he will never take California. The Clintons are super popular with the Democratic Party there and not just white people, as in his "victory" states.

    6. Anonymous9:14 AM


      Bill lost a lot of the black vote when he mocked the protesters.

    7. Anonymous11:02 AM

      9:14 - did you watch it? He did not mock anyone! I'm glad I watched the exchange, and then read about how Sanders voted yes on the 1994 Crime bill.

  9. Take away the super delegates and it's 1305 to Clinton and 1086 for Bernie. It's still a very much contested primary in spite of what the Clinton people and Clinton supporters want us all to believe.

    1. Anonymous11:01 AM

      Bernie has to win New York & CA by HUGE margins. He'll win neither.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
