It’s hard to guess what, exactly, the SNL skit will look like. I think the press is congealing around the (erroneous) idea that Obama won precisely because that’s what the focus groups seem to be saying, or at least what the focus groups are saying allows the press to get away with claiming Obama won (for the record I think McCain won the parts I saw, but I’ve long argued that the press mostly cares what the polls say about these sorts of events). And SNL’s instincts are, lamentably, to go with liberal conventional wisdom.
But, if I were writing the SNL skit, I would have the two candidates engage in a sympathy-for-veteran-families-and-other-noble-causes “Jewelry-off” playing on the “I have a bracelet too” comment from Obama.
“Oh yeah? I have this earing and two bangles….”
“Well, my nipple ring proves I care more about ….”
