    I wonder if they have titles under Presidential Aid (Disposable) like razor blades.
    They should just be called "redshirts." It would cover a multitude of bases.

    I loved this skit; but just to show how in-the-tank and absurd the maintream media is, they did a FACT check on SLN. You just can't make this crap up folks.



    Don't Laugh, CNN Reports
    The network "fact checks" a "Saturday Night Live" sketch. Seriously!
    By JAMES TARANTO WSJ

    If you don't think "Saturday Night Live" is funny anymore, try watching CNN. Those guys are hilarious. Yesterday on Wolf Blitzer's "Situation Room," the network "fact checked" an SNL skit. No joke! The transcript is here, video is here. "How much truth is behind all the laughs?" Blitzer intoned as he teased the upcoming segment. "Stand by for our reality check."

    The skit, which you can view here, features one of the "SNL" guys imitating President Obama. "When you look at my record, it's very clear what I have done so far. And that is nothing," he says. "Almost one year and nothing to show for it. You don't believe me? You think I'm making it up? Take a look at this checklist." He then rehearses a series of campaign promises--closing Guantanamo, improving Afghanistan, taking over the health-care system and so on--and declares all of them undone.

    CNN interviews Bill Adair of the St. Petersburg Times's PolitiFact, one of those supposedly nonpartisan fact-checking outfits, which actually published a "study" of the "SNL" skit earlier yesterday. Adair says:

    I think "SNL" tended to kind of gloss over what is a--a fair amount of progress by this administration, about sending two additional brigades to Afghanistan. We rated that had a promise kept. On Iraq, "Saturday Night Live" said not done and, of course, that's true, they're not done. But they hadn't promised to be done by now.

    Reporter Kareen Wynter adds: "As for health care, Adair says 'SNL' also got it wrong, since that legislation is still stalled in Congress." Which means it has been done? Well, whatever. "But Adair says the sketch did get some things right, like Guantanamo Bay. PolitiFact says the president has fallen short on that promise."

    Yes I am sure that is his underlying plan.

    Exterminate?

    You really have to wonder where their heads are.
    You would think someone at CNN has a modicum of brain power and would have nixed the idea in a NY Minute...
    Seems not.
    They're still fully committed propagandists for Dear Leader.

    I guess that's why FOXNEWS has better ratings at 3am than CNN has at 8pm... prime time... LOL.
