I just watched Sara Palin on Saturday Night Live tonight. It was a fun sketch with her in the opening scene watching Tina Fey doing a press conference. She stood next to Alec Baldwin and Lorne Michaels and discussed whether she thought Tina Fey’s depiction of her was realistic or not.
I thought it was a fun sketch, but I was not sure what the rest of America felt was appropriate for a political candidate considering how close we are to the presidential election. Have Biden and Obama also done appearances like this on other light hearted shows? Do Americans like these types of appearances from their political candidates? I would love to know your thoughts.
I have the video here from Youtube in case you missed it:
Also, today the Los Angeles Times gave their endorsement for who they supported for Presidential candidate. I am not going to say who they said they support. That part is really irrelevant, the part I was concerned about was, when does a Newspaper give opinions like this? I thought a Newspaper was just supposed to report on events and not give opinions. This is another topic I would love to hear comments on.
