From last night’s SNL. And yeah, there’s an ad at the beginning.



  1. Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

    If this becomes omnipresent as the Obama Campaign’s— Republicans are waging a “war on women and will take away your contraception” in all the “news” and entertainment media…

    No Democrat will oppose drones anywhere.

    • Drone -on says:

      WOW that was a waste of time. It was not funny. It did not make any real point about drones because it downplayed the reason drones are sent out to kill. I made fun of the fact that drones are “cool” for some people when most people do not even know how they work. I realize it is supposed to be satire; but satire that avoids pissing off the people that should be the targets of the satire is just dumb and a waste of time.

  2. So what says:

    Thanks for reminding me why I stopped watching SNL twenty years ago.

    • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

      Its satire, the target is the “moron vote” who vote for subjective reasons, like “coolness.”

      You were the target….

      But of course, it went over your head.

      • So what says:

        No, it just isn’t funny. Just like SNL for the last twenty years. Hell you’re funnier, albeit unintentionally on your part, than SNL has been for years.

        • Ken says:

          ^^^^ #1 on the list of “Things Hipsters Say”

          • So what says:

            Entirely too old to ever be or to ever have been considered a “hipster.”

        • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

          It was satire, and as such, funny.

          It wasn’t meant to be funny like your favorite cartoons.

          It lampooned the “moron vote.”

          But a better satire would have featured Republicans, laughing themselves silly over Democrat attacks against them…the contrived “war on women” or “war on contraception.”

          Republican strategists laughed about those attacks, who stupid they were….”They don’t have a record to run on…so they make crap up.”

          No, it was genius strategy by the Democrats, likely Axelrod in particular. The “Moron Vote” is larger than the “Independent” vote, and by mounting these ridiculous charges only morons would believe, throughout the media, every chance they had…every Democrat repeated them…every newscast…every comedian….

          They won those who made up their mind subjectively, like true morons they are.

          And there are more of them than Independents.

          Therefore the old calculus was defeated…while Romney did get most of his base, and the Independents….the Moron Vote was far more numerous, and Obama got all of them…and won.

          So the question to ask Rove & crew, who laughed themselves silly at the contrived “war on women” etc…

          “They won, you lost…who is the stupid now?”

        • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

          @ jpfitz

          Without your contribution, this board is nothing.

          Bet its hard lugging around such a big brain.

          • jpfitz says:

            Do not try and bend the board. That’s impossible. Instead, only realize the truth… THERE IS NO BOARD. Then you will see that it not the board that bends, it is yourself.

            Tead, get bent. You are a funny guy.

      • THINK! DON'T STINK! says:

        What the hell?! Do you see a political statement here?

        It’s just a dumb-ass cartoon!

        If anything, it might be a statement about how the military wastes money or how people are mind washed by entertainment media (albeit, mostly kids). But you honestly see a left-right political struggle here, don’t you?

        Let me see if I understand you correctly. You say this is a satirical cartoon where the comment is about mindless drone-like liberal voters. Not about conservative voters who “believe” what their leaders say and then militantly vote like those military-controlled drones. Right???

        What happens when you count rosary beads or cannibalize your leader by drinking his blood or consuming his body? Does your intellect go up or down?

        Don’t look now, but I think that fecal matter is above your white square-spotted hypocritical neck. Try cleaning it out with a .44 caliber “ear cleaner”!

        • So what says:

          Don’t mind alfie, of the millions of sperm he was the fastest, not have the genetic material for thought gave him a head start.

          • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

            As the official representative of the MORON voter—can’t distinguish Sponge Bob from satire, is it true you were born on April 2nd—one day late?

          • So what says:

            Sorry to disappoint aflie, but I didn’t vote this time. Therefore in good faith I cannot represent you or your constituents. I was out of the state on business on November 6th and as it was not planned did not provide time to for an absentee ballot before the deadline in Missouri.

          • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

            I’m to believe you conducted business that was rewarding and meaningful which also benfited the community rather than voting for either the guy who raised $950,000,000 or $949,500,000?

          • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

            rather than voting for either the guy who raised $950,000,000 or $949,500,000?

            Correction:

            rather than voting for the guy who raised $950,000,000 for campaign advertising and not the one only able to raise $949,500,000?

            I don’t believe it.

          • So what says:

            Alfie over the course of the year you thought Michelle Bachman, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, and Ron Paul would all win the Republican Nomination and you also believed that Mitt Romney would win the election in a landslide.

            Given that history of beliefs, my spending a bit of my vacation time to make a few thousand for myself for four days work (I happen to be VERY good at what I do) plus a chance to mule deer hunt on some very nice Montana property would be the least fanciful.

            You see alfie it turns out Sequencing Batch Reactors have a nasty tendency to burn out UV bulbs at a higher than normal rate. This results in both a cost in replacement bulbs and the spent bulbs themselves contain heavy metals. The speed at which the bulbs were burning out was creating an abnormal operating condition at the facility. This resulted in violations from Montana DEQ for water pollution issues and a potential lawsuit with the installing contractor. The amount of bulbs being replaced would also have caused the city to be classified as a small quantity generator of hazardous waste. It turns out the fix is relatively simple it’s just not something engineers think about as they design the facilities they don’t operate them. The fix is something I worked out with operators of SBR’s here in Missouri over the summer when the same problems began occurring in state. However as a state employee I can’t charge them for my expertise they get it for free.

            At the end of the day I didn’t kill a big deer but the Montana DEQ Water Quality Program was happy which made the the contractor happy which saved the city a fair amount of money so the city was happy, and I cleared 5K which made me very happy.

            Personally I could care less how much either candidate raised or spent. Why would that color my decision to make money for myself?

          • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

            Satire challenged, that was satire…re the money these men spent…and how little difference there is between them…

            However my satire about your work…with most isn’t all that rewarding, missed…you actually accomplished something.

            But it remains true, you wouldn’t know satire if you tripped over it.

          • So what says:

            Sure it was alfie, it was satire, that’s why you took the time to “correct” your post.

            It’s interesting to see you backpedaling from your comments lately, like now, and in some of the previous articles.

            So everyone should now be aware that when you get caught flat footed your comment should have been considered satire and not your normal screw up. Better make an announcement so every body knows.

            MAY I HAVE EVERYONE’S ATTENTION.

            FROM NOW ON WHEN EVER ALFIE POSTS SOMETHING STUPID, INCORRECT, BLATANTLY IGNORANT, OUTRAGEOUSLY SILLY, FLAT OUT WRONG OR IS BEING AN ASS. HE IS BEING SATIRICAL AND HIS COMMENTS SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH.

            There that should inform everyone.

            I suggest you learn to backpedal faster or learn to beware the Petard.

          • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

            There was no “backpedaling”, not getting “caught flat footed”…no ” screw up.”

            Sure, I’ll “make an announcement every body knows:”

            Your many words make it, I live in your mind, my words echo in the space between your ears…That is the antithesis of “So What.”

            That was not your response.

            So your name is satire, applied to you.

            Don’t worry if it prey upon your mind….

            It will soon die—of starvation.

          • So what says:

            You get weaker by the day. Same tired old canned responses. Oh wait it was satire.

        • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

          Not liberal per se, voters who vote for subjective reasons…how even evil can be packaged as cool…and loved via the pop culture.

          Watch it again, it begins with a Military man and his “objective report on drones”

          Its satire, and its right on.

          A better target would have been the elite Republican strategists Romney hired…who laughed themselves silly about the stupid “war on women” Democrats smeared Republicans with…

          These strategists never saw it coming…while they were LOL, Democrats were winning over the MORON VOTE…people who make up their minds on the day they vote…subjectively…can’t even tell you why the voted as they did…or will mindlessly repeat some of the smears they heard…

          There are more MORONS voting, than Independents…and Axelrod knew it…Democrats knew it…and they reached out to them via the pop culture…and won their vote…and the election.

  3. dcphill says:

    Why do we perform necessary evil to show that evil will not be tolerated. Drones are evil.

  4. Raintree says:

    They droned Stevie Nicks!

  5. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    You get killed by a rusty sword, a chariots wheel, an arrow, dynamite, a machine gun, a snipers rifle, a speeding car, a poisoned tipped umbrella, a biological weapon, a nuclear bomb, a slow starving due to ethanol subsidies in the West ……. whats the exact difference? So, now-add drones.

    “The Issue” remains the same and constant thoughout history and logic. Only the tool has changed.

    Wheres the beef?

  6. Nate says:

    Who was it that said in order to welcome something into your home that you are afraid of, one of the things you have to do is laugh at it and make it into a harmless caricature of what you are afraid of?

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      Excellent point. I watched about the first minute of this on SNL last night and channel surfed to something else. I think the manipulation you refer to is what turned me off.

      Same with the opposite point of view: demonizing an issue.

      “It is what it is.” Just a tool. In this case, answering my own question as off point as it is: the amount and nature of the collateral damage is a difference. Not to the person who was targeted, but to the surviving population. Still- would you rather have a drone with 5 collateral dead, or a bomb with 50 collateral dead?

      That is the very issue being mis-emphasized right now in the difference in civilian deaths in the flare up in Israel right now. Its all BS. The relevant issue not even identified much less discussed.

      Through out History–a defeated enemy left with too many soldiers is a constant threat until they are finally wiped out. Israel won’t find peace until it kills ALL its enemies, and the collateral folks that support them.

      Its not nice, just reality.

      • Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

        So the demonic drones were speaking, and you got scared…

        What did they say?

  7. I remember when Jimmy Carter was still president and SNL was still funny.

  8. ehhhh says:

    Perhaps it’s time to Drone the comedy writers of SNL’s so called humor – Lamest show on earth…

  9. Holdfast says:

    As this item was unavailable for 96% of us, please could someone describe it for those of us deemed scum by Hulu?

  10. Supreme Ultrahuman (I see the comment system is still designed for retards.) says:

    Once again, priorities are being missed. We must ask ourselves, “how does this affect the American standard of living?” (by extension – how does this affect the very purpose of the universe?)

    Does this help reduce population density (increase “urban sprawl”?) Does it increase the average size of the American house/yard? Does it get more Americans driving full size 4x4s long distances?

    If not, why is it even being discussed? Stay focused folks – we don’t have the resources to worry about trivialities.

  11. JohnK says:

    To quote the great philosopher Homer, Simpson that is … “Be more funny”

  12. Spudboy says:

    Nice to see they didn’t leave out the “Double Tap” :)

  13. A Spike Ferguson immitation says:

    I don’t know exactly when SNL stopped being funny. I think it might have been when Eddie Murphie and the second bunch of actors took over. Not that Eddie wasn’t funny – he was the only one!

    Who can forget the “Bass-O-Matic” or “Cheebuger-Cheebuger-Cheebuger”? How about the “Coneheads”, “Samurai Hit Man”, “Mister Robinsons Neighborhood” or even “Gumby-Dammit!”? I’m sure I’m leaving other skits out like Chris Farley’s one and only moment about living in a van down by a river. But just who told David Spade he was funny? Or Jimmy Falon?! I’m not sure I like Spade in anything since he’s never been anything more than a snide little prick. And Falon? Don’t even get me started!

    The point is, there really aren’t that many worthwhile SNL comedic moments. You can almost see the steady decline in writing since Conan O’Brien left too. Now, it’s all pretty much run by Tina Fey and a group of idiots who couldn’t recognize funny if it involved a pie in the face of Richard Nixon. And it’s only gotten worse where they now just “phone it in” with politically charged cartoons that they somehow think are humorous.

    Please!

    You might get a chuckle on occasion. But can you really say any of it is exactly memorable?

    About the only person who keeps SNL or even 30 Rock going are people like Tracey Morgan. But that’s not saying much since his style of comedy is really nothing more than slap-stick “pee pee” jokes. It’s when they try to go above those mind-numbing pee pee jokes that we can see their near complete lack of imagination which involves any real comedy. Almost ever time it just pokes fun at politicians (often republicans) or is somehow politically charged satire that isn’t even very good. And if I want that kind of entertainment there are at least two much better shows to watch – The Daily Show or The Colbert Report.

    If you ask me, SNL is a near complete waste of time to even watch. That is, unless you’re a mindless “stoner” or someone unable to change channels.
