Dennis Miller: You know, over the years there has been one consistent, recurring segment of “Saturday Night Live”. That, of course, would be the really bad sketch at ten till one that makes everyone want to go to bed early. In addition to that, though, there has always been political content, either in the form of sketches or “Weekend Update” jokes. I hold a particularly fond place, near and dear to my heart, for “Weekend Update”. Because without it, I would probably be watching the show at home tonight, embittered and undoubtedly plotting the deaths of many of the fabulous entertainers you’ve seen here this evening. Here, then, is a look at the political past of “Saturday Night Live”.
