Will Ferrell and Darrell Hammond on SNL season finale this past Saturday
The LEFT Wing Obama Channel (NBC) cannot let the Bush and Cheney bashing go. The major objection is that it is NOT funny.
How do the words trite and hackneyed sound?

Chris, I, also, wondered why Perez Hilton, a renown homosexual who loves to OUT
fellow travelers of the gay persuasion was selected by Donald Trump’s organization to judge a female beauty pageant? Seems sort of perverted, if you know what I mean? I beleive there was another homosexual among the judges but believe me I didn’t check out who it was.
It is obvious that the Trump owned and run Miss USA Pageant is all about shocking the culture and generating marketing buzz. Trump validated that belief when he was interviewed by Bill O’Reilly last week.
But, is this surprising from Trump or NBC? After all poker player Annie Duke on Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice was boasting that she was a complete woman because of her demonstrably superior fellatio capabilities.
Shocking and crude mark the Trump and NBC brand.
Kind of a shame for the Miss USA pageant and the young women who participate.

NBC apparently denies the story.
Late today, NBC News denied the story with this statement: “We’ve had Ann Coulter on ‘Today’ many times, but because of the news in Washington and the Middle East, we decided to cancel her appearance tomorrow. Understanding the media as well as she does, we are sure she knows this happens from time to time. We look forward to welcoming her back in the future.”
Ann Coulter tomorrow will be on CBS’s The Early Show instead – Touche NBC
BFD – Let NBC keep their FAR LEFT
Talking Heads Chris Matthews, Olbermann and Maddow.
“We are just not going to have her on any more, it’s over,” a top network source explains.
NBC’s TODAY show abruptly cut Ann Coulter from its planned Tuesday broadcast, claiming the schedule was overbooked.
Coulter was set to unveil her new book, GUILTY.
But one network insider claims it was the book’s theme — a brutal examination of liberal bias in the new era — that got executives to dis-invite the controversialist.
“We are just not interested in anyone so highly critical of President-elect Obama, right now,” a TODAY insider reveals. “It’s such a downer. It’s just not the time, and it’s not what our audience wants,either.”
For the book, Coulter reportedly received the most-lucrative advance ever paid to a conservative author.
The TODAY show eagerly invited the author months ago, for her first network interview on GUILTY.
The exclusive was to air during the show’s 7 AM hour. The cut came Monday afternoon.
Executives at NBC TODAY replaced Coulter with showbiz reporter Perez Hilton, who recently offer $1,000 to anyone who would throw a pie at Ann Coulter. Hilton is also launching a new book this week, RED CARPET SUICIDE.
But, you know what – Republican pols and conservative activists should remember Matthews’s set-up of Representative Michele Bachmann and boycott the MORONS at NBC anyway.

Battle of the Jaywalk All-Stars Part II, December 3, 2008
NBC will offer up the 10 PM programming slot to Jay Leno this summer as he leaves the Tonight Show to Conan O’Brien.
NBC appears prepared to hand over the troublesome 10 o’clock weeknight slot to Jay Leno as the company barrels through a painful restructuring brought on by low ratings and a bad economy.
Leno, the soon-to-be-exiting “Tonight Show” host who’s been making rumblings about heading to ABC or elsewhere, will apparently do a nightly prime-time show. This will keep Leno in the NBC fold after Conan O’Brien takes over “Tonight” next year.
A 10 p.m. Leno show would be high-risk, especially if the host generates viewing levels no higher than the 5 million or so who tune in to watch “Tonight.” But such a program would presumbly be relatively low-cost and would thus help NBC balance the books in a difficult economic environment. The move probably signals an end, at least for now, to NBC’s ambitious and costly 10 p.m. dramas. “ER” is ending its run this season, and new efforts like “My Own Worst Enemy” have failed to find viewers.
At an investment conference today, NBC Universal boss Jeff Zucker said that the company’s flagship network may trim its programming because of the poor economy.
“Can we continue to program 22 hours of prime time? Three of our competitors don’t,” Zucker was quoted as saying. “Can we afford to program seven nights a week? One of our competitors doesn’t. All of these questions have to be on the table. And we are actively looking at all of those questions.”
This is a smart move by NBC.
They save Jay Leno from being poached by Fox or CBS (to replace the tired and worn out David Letterman) and avoid the high production costs of 10 PM dramas that lately have struggled on NBC.
So, NBC will try this for the summer, much like the original Dick Cavett Show on ABC (of course more light-hearted content) and if it works then NBC can move its one or two successful 10 PM shows like Law and Order SVU to to other time slots and fill their schedule.

Herbert and Marion Sandler – People who should be shot
The Forbidden Saturday Nigh Live skit featuring George Soros
, Herbert and Marion Sandler
and the pols that enabled them has been reposted as per editing and redaction by NBC.
The original SNL skit is here at Pat Dollard’s blog.
Michelle Malkin posted screens shots and a complete transcript here.
And, here is the edited skit as reposted at NBC:
So, why was the original skit taken down and censored?
The company line is that the skit “didn’t meet their standards.”
A “Saturday Night Live” skit that skewered President Bush, Democrats, homebuyers and subprime lenders for their roles in the mortgage meltdown was removed from the program’s website because it “didn’t meet out standards,” a spokesman for the show said Tuesday. An edited version of the skit will be re-posted online soon, the spokesman said.
The skit, a parody of a C-SPAN news conference, ridiculed subprime borrowers, housing speculators and Herb and Marion Sandler, the real-life couple who built Golden West Financial into a subprime lending powerhouse and sold it to Wachovia before the subprime collapse. At one point in the skit, the Herb Sandler character says he made $24 billion off the subprime boom. Graphics then appear labeling the Sandlers as “People who should be shot.”
“Upon review, we caught certain elements in the sketch that didn’t meet our standards,” a spokesman for the program said in an e-mail message today. “We took it down and made some minor changes, and it will be back online soon.”
The Left dismisses the FLAP as just “sketch comedy” and nothing sinister. Oh Really?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, George Soros and Rep. Barney Frank
But, there were MORE than minor changes.
In an interview with Gold, the showâ€™s executive producer, Lorne Michaels, said the Sandlers were distraught but had not demanded the changes. He noted the â€œPeople who should be shotâ€ line was deleted as was a reference to their â€œcorrupt activities.â€
But a comparison of the two versions shows that actually a little more than that was cut. What also was excised was any mention of the involvement of Massachusettsâ€™ Rep. Frank in the Sandler subprime messâ€¦
In the original skit Sandler addresses Frank, saying, â€œAnd thank you Congressman Frank as well as many Republicans for helping block Congressional oversight of our corrupt activities.â€
To which Frank replies enthusiastically, â€œNot at all!â€
Let’s face it folks, there has been “PRESSURE” placed on NBC to edit or even remove the skit. They have resisted because of the overt censorship of the flap but made changes as a remedy when the lawsuits come. And, the will.
The fact is the Democrats, notably Congressman Barney Frank and their left-wing billionaire friends of George Soros and Herbert/Marion Sandler have been complicit in the financial meltdown which is at hand. The skit offered cynical transparency.
The parties involved did not like it and attempted to quash the speech. But…..the SNL skit had already aired.
Now, all of America knows and there WILL BE repercussions.
