This parody of the Democratic Party’s “victory lap” is why we’re never too hard on SNL. While some of their sketches are more mean-spirited attacks than satire (see Meh. SNL Totally Misses with KellyAnne Conway Skit and SNL Airs Unfunny Sarah Sanders Sketch…), they are equal opportunity for the most part. And I stand by my belief Kate McKinnon’s impersonation of Hillary did more damage to Hill than Wikileaks or “the Russians.”
Coming off an Election Day that showed Democrats making a comeback in places they expected to do well in the first place? THEY. ARE. BACK. BAYBAY!
My favorite line?
We can learn from their mistakes, and focus on the important things, like converting Confederate monuments into statues of prominent lesbian poets.
Though the best punchline is who the “message” was paid by. I won’t spoil that for you here.
Old. Out of touch. Up to their usual tricks. Yep, sounds like the Democratic Party to me. They won two states that went blue for Hill-dawg just a year ago. Yet, they’re calling it a “Democrat wave” and a “referendum on Trump.” Methinks some of these ancient Democratic coffin-dodgers are showing signs of senility.
The Democratic Party’s ignorance and newfound confidence are things worth mocking. This is a party that prides itself on being at the forefront of new ideas and “progress.” Yet, all we’re getting are the same failed 20th century policies and the same shriveled faces pushing them.
Just like this sketch shows, making fun of the left is a snap. It’s also not hard to make fun of conservatives. The rub is most “comedians” who do so are bitter, angry, and giant dicknoses about it. But, when you leave out the bias and vitriol, and stick to the jokes? You get good, quality comedy.
Nice job, SNL.
