Obama joins Arafat, Carter as recipient of Nobel Peace Prize, waiting for the SNL "Really?" Sketch

October 9th, 2009

Let’s see if Saturday Night Live, a show I haven’t watched in years, continues to keep it real.

One of the funnier sketches is on weekend update. Seth Meyers, with a dollop of sarcasm asks about something unbeliveable, and asks “Really!?” See this hulu link for a classic “Really?” sketch about bong hits for Jesus, err Michael Phelps. Also see a funny Randy Barnett “Really?” parody over the Constitutionality of ObamaCare.

I am not a writer on SNL, but here is how I would write the sketch.

So Obama won the peace prize for 2 weeks on the job? REALLY?

Two imperialistic wars raging. And they’re both getting worse under his watch? Really? Really?

And he promised to end these wars. Are they ended? No. REALLY OSLO? REALLY?

And he promised to Shut Down Guantanamo Bay. Still open for business. Really? Really?

And he thinks he can hold the Detainees at Gitmo indefinitely, just like Bush. Really? Really?

And he promised to stop unconstitutional government surveillance, but the PATRIOT Act is soon to be renewed? Really Nobel Peace Prize Committee? What part of Peace do you not get. Really?

And he gunned down a bunch of poor teenagers playing pirates in Somalia. Is this peaceful? Really? Really?

I’ll add more rants through the day. Feel free to comment
