The only reason I pay attention to politics at this point is so I’ll get all the topical jokes made on late night TV. It’s a good thing, too, since the opener to the SNL season premiere took a pretty good shot at Sarah "Check Out My Vice Presidential Boobs" Palin. The rest of the show was fine. I always prefer when they let comedians host, rather than athletes like Michael Phelps. But hey, at least it was light on Horatio Sanz.
