Is SNL in the tank for Clinton?
I find it odd and telling that quite a few Obama supporters, upon watching the above video clip, see it as SNL giving tacit support to Hillary Clinton. Even nominally non-partisan journalists, such as the local political report Jeff Mapes, seem to think it is sufficiently anti-Obama that they have to give a warning to Obama supporters ahead of time.
Now, the clip does contain a disparaging portrayal of Obama. But a lot of people seem to have missed the point that the sketch is meant to be a Clinton commercial about just how bad Obama would be. In other words, the over-the-top nature of the Obama portrayal is an satirical exaggeration of Clinton's "Experience before Hope" argument.
It is a sketch that knocks both candidates, but Clinton even more so because it shows just how absurd that argument is.
Maybe I benefit from not being an ardent Obama partisan (though I do support him over Clinton). Maybe that is why I can see the obvious direction of the satire while a lot of Obamazins fail to get the joke.
What do others say?
