Dem Senatorial Candidate Now Writing McCain-Bashing Segments For Saturday Night Live
The Democratic-Media complex keeps rolling along…
Last night’s SNL opening attack on John McCain was written by Democratic Senatorial Candidate Al Franken:
Of course, the sketch accused McCain of disgusting attacks on Obama.
What’s really “funny” is that Al Franken is the candidate with a history of cracking crass rape jokes.
The Politico reported:
Al Franken, the former “Saturday Night Live” star now running in a high-profile Senate race in Minnesota, helped craft the opening sketch mocking John McCain that kicked off the NBC comedy show Saturday, according to two well-placed sources inside the network.
Franken, who hasn’t been a staff writer on the show for 13 years, “phoned in” a spoof of McCain recording campaign ads in an edit booth, said an NBC source. Seth Meyers, the show’s current head writer, wrote it, but the sketch was hatched by Franken, a longtime liberal satirist and comedian.
An SNL insider said that, as of the Wednesday script read-through, Franken was the “credited writer with Meyers” on the opening sketch. Show veteran Darrell Hammond is to play McCain.
Franken’s input to the show blindsided his campaign staff, who have been forced to explain away some of the more crass and profane parts of his past writing and acting that have been used as fodder against him in a state known for its polite manners.
