NBC's comedy depiction of talkradio king Rush Limbaugh passed-out in vomit from drug abuse ignited backstage outrage at SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
The animated sketch left one senior production source stunned and outraged, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
A. I don't visit Drudge Report often.
B. I haven't watched SNL in years. It's simply not funny anymore.
C. This seems a bit...eh...late, and perhaps in poor taste, yet it demonstrates a vitally important point for the "moral values" contingent. I'll let you figure out what the point is. And the outrage is a bit contrived, for sure.
D. See this posting on Eschaton for a primer on how crap like this makes it from non-issue to fire-starter.
If Drudge and Michelle Malkin have picked up on this, it's only a matter of time before it shows up on Fox. I'm sure it will also be the topic de jour for dittoheads calling into the EIB network today.
