But when they've been good on political parody, SNL has been great. I have often thought of a classic from decades ago — and I've finally found it.
The "line" on Ronald Reagan was that he was old, dim, lethargic, sleepy, and only half-engaged. His staffers ran everything. That was just the negative liberal take on him
But evidently the writers at SNL started thinking outside of the box, and asked themselves, "Hmm... what if that's just a clever ruse?"
Here's the result. (Sorry about the brief ad.)
UPDATE: At least for the moment, Palin's sketches are up here.
