It has long seemed to Wit that regulars (and head writers) Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, far from being keen satirists or funny puncturers of cultural hypocrisy, actually seem like they have been enlisted to belittle and police other women from escaping "their place." Are they secretly on some conservative policy institute's payroll?
With all that is going on in the world, it is truly bizarre that they often choose to hector Drew Barrymore for visible through her shirt nipple silhouettes or ridicule some dipshit's decision to eschew underpants.
They sound old and crazy (like so many people these days), so I'm glad that the writer below lays the blame for this sort of crap on the show's producer. That said, these two powerful women should fight harder not to have mouth twaddle (or twattle, as the case may be) like this.
"We've seen Amy Poehler and Tina Fey be comic geniuses in person, but under the visionary incompetence of one of the dumbest men in tv history, you just want to punch them both in the face. But please save your fists for the man responsible for dumbing down three different generations of society and turning satire into a dirty word. Even the Bushes watch their caricatures and giggle. Under Michaels' watch, "Weekend Update," arguably the nation's most visible engine of political satire, has muddled through 9/11, the Iraq war and two contentious presidential elections. Among its most frequent targets? Daytime television talk show The View. We implore you, Lorne, do the world a favor and resign."
