Change vs Bipartisanship on SNL

Saturday Night Live also picked up on the theme of change versus bipartisanship in the stimulus bill for its opening skit last night. In the skit, Speaker Pelosi is depicted as being disappointed in the Senate and Obama for eliminating some of the Democratic Party priorities in the bill. According to Maureen Dowd in the New York Times, this is essentially correct. At the House Democratic Caucus retreat, Pelosi told Obama, "“I don’t mind you driving the bus over me, but I don’t appreciate your backing it up and running over me again and again.”

I admit I am a fan of SNL - especially political things - not always appropriate - but at times makes me think more than I would otherwise. sad that SNL makes me do that more than CNN. lol
