Too true to be funny.
I watched it at the time, but missed the Soros part.
One thing was conspicuously missing. Barack Obama is still off limits. You cannot make fun of the man. That is not a good thing.
. You cannot make fun of the man.
It is all very funny... the clips, that is... ;-)
The best of political satire exaggerates what little nuggets of truth that are already there... the worst satire manufactures lies.
Obama has a very flat affect, and has actually shown little of his own personality during his time in public. I suspect this is because he realized long ago that as a black man aspiring to a political career he would have to be very reserved in his public demeanor, or else open himself up to stereotypical attacks.
The video is already gone from YouTube
As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago... NBC has a policy of only releasing video clips of their shows on their web site alone.
I watched it just an hour ago!
Oh well, check the breitbart site, they may post a new link. It disappeared before and they found an updated link for it.
Pay no attention to those people behind the curtain!

One of the rapacious couples featured in the skit was Herbert and Marion Sandler (portrayed by Darrell Hammond and Casey Wilson). Unlike the other composite figures, the Sandlers are a real-life couple.
Also lampooned: Left-wing billionaire George Soros.
As Todd Thurman at Heritage notes, the Sandlers are left-wing moguls who built ?a mortgage company whose major product was subprime mortgages and they sold it to Wachovia for $24.2 billion in 2006. And what do the Sandlers do when they are not peddling subprime garbage? They are busy writing checks to leftist groups like the Center for American Progress, the American Civil Liberties Union, and Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). Yes that ACORN.?
The Sandlers are seething over the skit. And George Soros must be livid as well. Anyone else smell a legal threat behind the disappearance of the vid?
It's the dirty little secret. The Democrats are now
the party of the rich and extravagant.
"The Democrats are now" ? That's hilarious
Whether it is the Democrats, the Republicans, or the Bull Moose party... it has always been big money that has driven any political party into a position of power. To pretend otherwise betrays a certain naivete to the realities of the world and human nature.
But the Bull Moose Party never
claimed to be the party of the little guy.
Limousine liberals sound familiar?
