SNL finally has someone to
play Michelle Obama

Washington Post, by Helena Andrews

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/7/2014 9:46:17 AM

Today NBC confirmed that “Saturday Night Live” will hire its first black female cast member in more than five seasons. Upright Citizens Brigade alum Sasheer Zamata will join the storied sketch comedy show as a featured player, making her live debut on the January 18th show hosted by rapper Drake. Finally someone (no offense, Kerry Washington) can give First Lady Michelle Obama’s foibles the attention they deserve. Amid criticism from viewers and its own cast members, most notably Jay Pharoah and Kenan Thompson, SNL held targeted auditions in Los Angeles and New York in late 2013. According to executive producer,

And having made the gesture....acquiring the potential, they now are absolved from actually gigging our angry queen.

If Leftists are really so convinced that everyone is ´equal´ then why can they not bring themselves to act that way ?

Imagine if Allen West were President or Thomas Sowell, Herman Cain, Allen Keyes (Who, BTW, got Zippy to admit that he was not eligible for the Presidency in a debate, some years ago).

They would resurrect Garrett Morris just to make fun of a black who had escaped the plantation.

God help us. Leftists have inflicted Affirmative Action on television, so that certain groups are "represented," despite the lack of any talent they may have. Who knew that all these things were representative bodies? Seems to me that some groups are way too over-represented. We should demand that TV represent the population as it actually is, and we would see many more conservatives and Christians.

SNL is now a poor attempt at black liberal democrat comedy, but there is a line between sarcasm and comedy, and I think SNL has fallen onto the snide side, with vulgarity too often used for lack of ideas, or ability. The season gets an F.

I hope she does well. She starts the show with the burden of being deemed a "token" but it would be great if she overcame that and kicked butt. I love it when the powers-that-be are proven wrong. They didn´t even give her a first look until it became racially political. SNL was a boy´s club and now it´s a mean girl´s/boy´s club. I hope she outshines all of them since she wasn´t invited in the first time.

On Thursday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said it was a sad day in Republican politics when a slight frontrunner for the Republican Senate nomination in Georgia, David Perdue, denigrates another candidate in the race for not having a college degree. As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported, establishment businessman David Perdue was caught on tape mocking Karen Handel, the former Georgia Secretary of State whom Palin has endorsed for U.S. Senate, for not having a college degree. “I mean, there’s a high school graduate in this race, OK? I’m sorry, but these issues are so much broader, so complex," Perdue

(Video) Hillary Clinton cancelled her planned appearance as the headline speaker at next week’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego due to planned protests over her failed leadership involvement in the Benghazi attacks. She will now be doing the speech via teleconference. Jan Iverson, the leader of a group formed in response to the Benghazi fiasco and Hillary’s subsequent inane statement, named “The Difference Matters,” said: She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don’t want her here. It is encouraging to see that citizen involvement at this level can have significant effect.

Obama’s laughable stand-up routine

President Obama was doing his favorite thing this week: talking to crowds of adoring young people who already agree with him while acting like he persuaded them about something. They also seemed to give Obama the impression that he’s a really funny guy. On Wednesday, he told a University of Michigan crowd of 1,400 that he visited a local deli, Zingerman’s. He proceeded to tell a long story about ordering the small Reuben sandwich, which he said was “killer.” That got a good laugh. Then he explained how he thought the sandwich was too big, so he shared it with

SACRAMENTO — One state senator was charged with conspiring to traffic in arms from the Philippines, and taking bribes from undercover F.B.I. agents including one who posed as a marijuana dealer. Another was accused of taking bribes from federal agents impersonating Hollywood film executives. And a third was convicted of perjury and voter fraud after lying about where he lived when he ran for office. All three are Democratic state senators from California, and their recent legal problems have brought rare bad news to a party that has come to thoroughly dominate politics in this state but now looks besieged

Senate Republicans already have their agenda set should they take the majority this fall. Seven months before the election, the GOP senators in line to become committee chairmen know what they would do with their gavels. In interviews with The Hill, the senators promised to work closely with House Republicans to break the legislative gridlock that has defined Congress since 2011. They are also vowing to step up oversight of the Obama administration dramatically and battle the president’s use of administrative power. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) has vowed that if elected majority leader, he would give Republican committee

Gov’t Spent $700 Million

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

JERUSALEM — Israel’s top negotiator said Thursday that Israel will not release a fourth batch of Palestinian prisoners, a move that brings the sputtering U.S.-backed peace talks ever closer to collapse. In an all-night meeting brokered by U.S. diplomat Martin Indyk, Israel’s chief negotiator Tzipi Livni told her Palestinian counterparts that since the Palestinians had taken unilateral steps toward greater recognition by the United Nations, the Israeli government would cancel the final release of 26 long-serving Palestinian prisoners, according to Israeli officials close to the talks. At the meeting, Israel also called upon the Palestinians to withdraw the letters they

But what almost no one is saying: change gun laws. The Fort Hood attack is the latest in a string of mass shootings, from the Navy Yard attack in September to a shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin the year before, where the response from Washington has shifted from guns – to the shooters who wield them.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
