Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Warren’s Health Plan, SNL, and Partial Equilibrium Reasoning

 

That Saturday Night Live cold-open about Elizabeth Warren pitching her “Medicare for All” plan to skeptical Iowa voters may seem like an in-kind donation to the Warren campaign. Kate McKinnon’s impression of the Massachusetts senator is both spot-on and compelling.

But there was one way in which the sketch was unfair to Warren. At one point, “Warren” is asked why she claims her plan will cost $20.5 trillion over a decade even though many economists put the cost at 50 percent higher or more. “Warren” then dismisses all these estimates as “pretend,” then adding, “You ready to get red-pilled? Money doesn’t exist!”

Kevin Williamson of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Texas Rep.Elect Dan Crenshaw for forgiving Saturday Night Live’s mocking of his war injury and using the opportunity to explain how all of us can best honor veterans. They also shudder as more Hillary Clinton acolytes insist she is planning to run for […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America wince at many of the final polls showing Democrats with the momentum in several key races. They also wonder why Republicans have not spent most of their time and money discussing the strength of the economy instead of more polarizing issues like the caravan. […]

No, I don’t think there is a limit to how low the left can go. I haven’t watched it in ages, but is this what Saturday Night Live (a former comedy show) is all about these days? Is this their idea of humor? http://insider.foxnews.com/2018/11/04/pete-davidson-saturday-night-live-mocks-former-navy-seal-dan-crenshaw More

This SNL excerpt from last Saturday depicts aging Democrats pretending to be back with exciting new ideas. It was especially striking to me when Hillary asks for one more chance, then maybe another after that, and when Schumer says we haven’t felt this confident since the day before we lost to Trump. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBUxNeXgC70 More

I was not expecting this SNL sketch to be funny (apologies if it’s already been posted somewhere, I tried searching). It is very funny. The main joke in “Black Jeopardy” is usually that of a shared black culture that clueless, if well-meaning, white people cannot navigate or make sense of (even though they think they can). […]

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Donald Trump to Host SNL Nov. 7

Promotion from Donald Trump’s last hosting appearance on Saturday Night Live in 2004. (With Trump impersonator Darryl Hammond.)

On June 29, the good and decent management of NBC Universal had had enough of Donald Trump’s mean statements about illegal immigrants. No longer would their network associate with such a cruel, divisive figure:

At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values.

The vigilant PC watchdogs of MSNBC took a 60-second break from fretting about racism to ring in Cinco de Mayo. An early morning host honored Mexico’s proud victory over the French by stumbling around the studio in a sombrero, shaking maracas and taking a swig from a cheap bottle of tequila.

 We expect Saturday Night Live to always ridicule Republicans, but Obama’s recent forays into social media marketing for Obamacare have been so embarrassing that even they had to criticize him for it in a very hilarious opening sketch. More
