Saturday Night Live hasn’t been funny for decades, but it still can set a narrative on a political candidate.

Perhaps the most infamous example was the statement by Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin that “I can see Russia from my house.” Palin never actually said that, but the statement became urban legend,...

Saturday Night Live used to be funny.  Remember Roseanne Roseannadanna or Chevy Chase being politically incorrect on Weekend Update and the catchphrases that permeated our culture:  “Jane, you ignorant slut,” “You look mahvelous,” and “could it be . . . Satan?”?

SNL is no longer funny.  Case in point, this week they mocked...

This video by SNL was forwarded to me on Twitter:

I know something about liberal bubbles.

I live and work in one, Ithaca.

I don’t watch Saturday Night Live anymore, and haven’t in well over a decade.

It’s just not funny, and almost always is anti-Republican and anti-conservative.

Last night Kate McKinnon — in the role of Hillary Clinton — did a respectable rendition of Hallelujah, in memory of Leonard Cohen. We covered the original and...

I watched Saturday Night Live last night for the first time in years and so did a lot of other people. Entertainment Weekly reports that it was a ratings bonanza:

I don’t watch Saturday Night Live anymore but when I saw this clip from Tina Nguyen on Mediaite, I have to admit it made me laugh. It’s a spoof of the well known Schoolhouse Rock cartoon:

Finally, the first biting political spoof...

This past week, SNL mocked Obama’s fear-mongering over the sequester.

But SNL went even further, mocking Obama’s economic ignorance, having his character say:  “I really have no idea how money works or how budgets work.” (h/t NRO)

This attitude, while a joke here, reflects an incident during the 2011 budget negotiations reported by Bob Woodward.

Reid began to...
