Dennis of Vita Mea funny piece of blogger comedy the other day using the old Saturday Night Live’s Gilda Radner and her rant against gay onions got me thinking about doing a similar bit.
Chevy Chase: Weekend Update recognizes its obligation to present responsible opposing viewpoints to our editorials. Here to reply to a recent editorial, is Emily Litella.
Emily Litella: With the recent election results I just can’t believe the hypocrisy of President George Bush. He supported the passage of the Federal Marriage Amendment and has also been supportive of state bans on same sex marriage. Yet shortly after he won the election he said he has a man date. How can he be against same-sex relationships and then date a man? What does Laura think of this relationship and does she actually approve of his dating a man? Also I have not heard of any denouncements by the Christian right when he announced that he had a man date. Where is Pat Robertson and Jerry Fallwell now? And what is even worse in his re-election acceptance speech he said "I want to thank you for your hugs on the rape lines." Really now, lining up people to rape in lines and then thanking them for their "hugs" is dispicable!. These are the values that American’s voted for?
Chevy Chase: Miss Litella?
Emily Litella: Yes?
Chevy Chase: The editorial was on President Bush receiving 52% percent of the vote and whether he had a "mandate" – which means a a clear authorization from the American people for his agenda. And that was rope lines not rape lines.
Emily Litella: Oh. I’m sorry. Never mind.
