ROBERT F. PAGE

establishment Publisher Emeritus

By D.F. Krause Michelle Lartz Ken Buchanan


Saturday Night Live has jumped the shark. Office Manager Editor and Publisher
Not because it’s stopped being funny (some-
times it still is), and not because it never does
anything noteworthy anymore (on occasion it
still does).
 It’s all because of Sarah Palin. Actually, not
just Sarah Palin. This involves Barack Obama,
Rudy Giuliani, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, John
McCain, Mike Huckabee and many other politi-
cians. If you are running for president or vice
president – or even thinking about it – we have
reached the point where you must do SNL. It
is part of the test of a prospective president’s
mettle.
 If you’re not required to stand there while
someone impersonates you, then you have to do
something absurd. You have to sit in a hot tub
like Gore did. (Hey! Did global warming make
that tub hot?) You have to sing karaoke like Mc-
Cain did. Or, like Palin, you have to stand there
talking to Alec Baldwin and resist the urge to say,
“I thought you were moving to France, tubby.”
 The problem here is not what the politicians
are doing. Some of it is funny. The problem is
SNL providing the venue. It means that SNL has
crossed a line and can never go back.
 Let us return for a moment to 1975, when
SNL was in its infancy, to recall what made it
such a groundbreaking show. It wasn’t just that
it was live, although that was a big deal. It was
more about the things the show wasn’t afraid to
do, especially given the times. The idea of put-
ting George Carlin on live television, knowing
what he would surely say, is hard to compare
to anything today in terms of edginess. Maybe
putting porn on primetime, network television
would be comparable in 2008, but I’m not even
sure about that.
 But it was also about the character of the
humor. Recall Dan Aykroyd putting a bass in a
blender in a commercial for the Bass-o-Matic,
and replying to Jane Curtin’s Weekend Update
commentary with “Jane, you ignorant slut.” Re-
call Garrett Morris as Anwar Sadat being tended
to by the Micro-Dentists. Recall Chevy Chase an-
nouncing that “Generalissimo Francisco Franco
is still dead.” Recall John Belushi welcoming
guests to Samauri Motel.
 SNL captured the nation’s attention because
