Good lord, the writers at Saturday Night Live have been on fire lately. Granted, the presidential election has given them some great material to work with thanks to the Republican ticket. After another week of Katie Couric playing Whack-A-Mole with the blooper-pinata that is Sarah Palin on the CBS Evening News, the writers at SNL prove that comedy can be equally revealing. For a political skit to be effective, it has to reflect opinions viewers already have - thus, the writers at SNL are telling us as much about ourselves as they are about Sarah Palin and, to a lesser extent, Joe Biden.
If you missed this week's opening sketch on Saturday Night Live, I'm posting it below - but first, it's time for this week's playlist - inspired by the sound of 'Human', by The Killers. They were this week's musical guest on SNL, and their new CD 'Day & Age' is due to be released on November 25th. Human is the first single, and it's track #3 on this week's playlist.
Imogen Heap has a new CD on the way too. 'Whatever' is from her first disk 'I Megaphone' back in 1998. Thank you Multnomah County Library for introducing me to that one!
And now, as promised, here's the opening skit from this past weekend's SNL:
That has to be one of their best opening skits ever.
