Watch It Fast!

Before they take it down again!

This is brilliant.

UPDATE: Oops, there it went again. You could always mosey over here, and see what's below the jump.

Malkin has the backstory about how the skit didn't merely portray George Soros in a not-quite-flattering light, but also "outed" the Herbert and Marion Sandler partnership as being one of the major forces behind the mess we find ourselves in now.

With a little help from, among others, Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank.

No one I know can believe that the skit aired in the first place, though we all know the tried to pull it before it went viral. Otherwise, Herbert and Marion Sandler could become household names for having screwed many individuals, the taxpayers, and the economy in general. People would be hearing all over the place about the role Herbert and Marion Sandler played in the financial debacle, and they might not be able to operate behind scenes as effectively.

In fact, once the actions of Herbert and Marion Sandler became well-known, there is a chance that those who are upset about the fact that we are still in some danger of a recession might get miffed at Herbert and Marion Sandler fore helping to bring it about.

So, please: don't get upset at George Soros. Or at Herbert and Marion Sandler, who were just trying to deceive a few people so they could become enormously wealthy in a way that would put the economy at risk and turn a few poor and working-class people onto the streets, which I'm sure will improve their character just as it improved the portfolios of Herbert and Marion Sandler.

too late

Yeah, they are staying up late to keep hammering that one down at YouTube. NBC has got to be freaked.

Malkin has links up, and they work.

If those go down, I'll risk the DCMA takedown notice and host the damn thing too.

Here is a working link... for now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RKQuAwqAbs

When they take that down, just search YouTube for: snl skits Nancy Pelosi

You should find it again.

Yay! Anti-semitism is hilarious!

Posted by: Alexander Klingman at October 7, 2008 09:26 AM

Anti-Semitism is OK, AK. You know, if you own a pet gun, believe you're a teenage girl, and have had your brains sucked out by evil movie-theater employees.

Posted by: Twinky Winky Palin at October 7, 2008 11:43 AM

Anti-Semitism? Did you link to the Daily Kos by mistake, Twinky Winky Biden?

Posted by: Darrell at October 7, 2008 12:02 PM

"Yay! Anti-semitism is hilarious!"

IS that a joke?

Posted by: Jimmy at October 7, 2008 12:07 PM

Everything that disputes the Left/Democrats is offensive individually to each of it's members. Every thing that supports the Left is "fair game" or "just a joke--Get a sense of humor, moron!" The clip's racist, too, because it doesn't aid Obama's ascension to power.

Posted by: Darrell at October 7, 2008 12:32 PM

You're right, what was I thinking? How could a sketch which suggests that several prominent Jews who had no relation to the financial crisis be blamed for the crisis could possibly be anti-Semitic? Why, there's no precedent in all of Western history for blaming rich Jews for economic woes! Silly me!

Posted by: Alexander Klingman at October 7, 2008 12:33 PM

The "Star of David" on their shirts is in your head, by the way. Time to adjust your meds.

Obama will ban all such "humor" or at least pixelate every face and have all characters identified as "X" or "Y". Or is that sexist now?

Posted by: Darrell at October 7, 2008 12:42 PM

Who says they are Jews?
So anyone that is a Jew can't be criticized or mocked for reprehensible actions just because they are Jews?

I think you need to look up what anti-Semitism really means before you use it like a flame thrower to extinguish any debate on a topic that does not reflect well on your team.

Posted by: Jimmy at October 7, 2008 01:26 PM

Who knew President Bush was Jewish?

You were right, though, about him having no relation to the financial crisis.

Posted by: Darrell at October 7, 2008 01:40 PM

The skit video is still up at PatDollard.com and also that link to the .wmv file that Jimmy posted was still valid as of a couple hours ago.

Grab and host on your own space temporarily. The worst they do is send a DMCA notice and it eventually gets pulled.

Man how the rats scramble when the light of truth is shined on them!

Um . . . Klingman (no--you don't get to be called Alex; I have a good friend by that name and you haven't earned such a moniker). It never crossed my mind that any of the miscreants involved in this mess were Jewish. Considering the fact that the major co-conspirator here was the U.S. House of Representatives, I'm going to need to see some evidence that Jews are over-represented in the legislature before I can begin to follow your reasoning.

I feel like I'm being berated for accusing the Chinese of being Bad at Business and Worse at Handling Money. Gosh knows the Chinese are even worse at it than Jews. (Excuse me: "the" Jews. I mean, the Joooooos.)

Don't you have your cultural stereotypes turned 180 degrees around? Perhaps you need an encyclopedia of bigotry, so you can identify it more accurately?

Posted by: Attila Girl at October 7, 2008 02:25 PM

That's right Alex. You listen to the middle-aged teenager. You haven't earned the right to be called Alex.

Harumph. You Moran.

Posted by: Twinky Winky Palin at October 7, 2008 06:17 PM

Is this your idea of being clever or analytical?

Because I feel that you're capable of better than this.

Perhaps you'd like to try again? You have potential, you know.

Posted by: Attila Girl at October 7, 2008 06:27 PM

Yeah. Aren't you that guy that inflates his ball sack--the most effective debater/protester/community activist the Left has?

Try to that that with your words. Like your fellow trolls.

Posted by: Darrell at October 7, 2008 06:36 PM

D, I really want them to succeed, but I just don't feel that they're going to pass the course unless their work habits improve, and they begin to employ logic.

I know they are leftists, but I refuse to give in to the soft bigotry of low expectations.

Goddamn it; most of my friends are far left of center, and they are capable of much better work than this. They are worthy adversaries. These people are simply sad and disappointing.

Come on, people: give me something to work with, here. Must I call in my own friends to troll my own site? This is a disgrace.

Insanity--Doing the same thing and expecting different results.

That's why the lyrics to most "Obama" songs are O-ba-ma, at best. Simple songs for simple minds.

Posted by: Darrell at October 8, 2008 10:02 PM


Follow your own advice, after eight years with Bush Co. The DOW is where it started, and the people with their hands in the cookie jar are now asking for another four, and you are expecting a different result.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
