Boycott NBC! Boycott Saturday Night Live. This is DISGUSTING!

What do you think would be happening right now if Saturday Night Live had done this skit on Barack Obama or his wife rather than Todd Palin? Do you think it would ever hit their radar? I found this reprehensible. Incest is never funny and I would feel the same way if they HAD smeared Obama like this. They hide behind "it's a joke about newspaper coverage". I just finished listening to one of Barack Obama's spokespeople saying the New York Times went after THEM. So what's SNL doing just picking on Todd Palin? And why in the world would they do it using incest? We need to write NBC. We need to email NBC. We need to stop watching the channel after we get a list of advertisers to boycott. Free speech is one thing, this goes way, way over the line.

I did a google search for "boycott nbc snl" and this was the first result. I'm trying to find a way to get lots of people to boycott NBC. This is disgusting.

Please find out who the adverstisers are and any phone numbers that we can start a campaign against this horrible attack against the Palin family. Incest is not a joke and all of us need to let NBC we are not laughing. If they would have done this to Obama or Biden the "left" would have had everyone on that show fired. Didn't one person think this was off limits? There is campaign humor and there should be. But in a civil world there are things we never laugh at: racism, incest, rape, etc. If any one knows the list of advertisers please post them. We have a voice and it is time we as Americans calle a stop to this madness. Yes, folks incest is madness and it is never funny. The left is calling for change. Well, I for one never want to see a family attacked again in any venue with this sick type of humor. And Democrats you need to jump the fence on this one and call too. This is not funny to the Palins or anyone who has ever been the victim of incest. The writer and the producer of this skit need to be held accountable just like Imus was. Enough is Enough.

Would someone please remind the court jesters there's a reason they don't RUN the kingdom??

It may surprise you to find out I'm Democrat with a tolerance level that doesn't offend easily but the Palin attack, yes I used the word attack, is sue worthy and I do hope NBC is sued. These types of attacks are not only in poor taste and judgement, they're a clear reflection of immoral and irrational thought that I don't want any part of.

This is JUST an election - why is NBC going postal and punitive with the personal attacks? IMO NBC has lost all credibility. SNL used to be funny (about 10 years ago!), but it isn't funny to brutally destroy someones family, esp where minor children are concerned.

I'm boycotting NBC and all branches of NBC. It's been a year since HBO ticked me off, I don't miss them at all.
