    SNL mocks wounded combat vet

    I wonder if NBC will give him the Roseanne Barr treatment.

    Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson is drawing fire for poking fun at an eyepatch worn by a Republican war veteran running for Congress.

    “This guy’s kinda cool — Dan Crenshaw, You may be surprised to learn he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hitman in a porno movie,” Davidson said during the skit in which he gave “first impressions” of electoral candidates.
    “I’m sorry — I know he lost his eye in war or whatever,” he chuckled.

    “Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes,” tweeted Crenshaw, a retired Navy SEAL who lost an eye in Afghanistan.
    He later called the joke “absolutely disgusting.”
    tone deaf entertainers
    War = Peace
    Freedom = Slavery
    Diversity = Strength

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    Not likely.

    They'll give him a raise.

    Yeah, me neither.
    Which part of "...shall not be infringed." do you not understand?

    You know what I liked about this candidate?

    Besides the fact that he *WON*....


    He didn't ask for or felt any need for an APOLOGY.
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt

    Saw him a little while ago being interviewed by Neal Cavuto(I think)..very impressive guy, pretty much let the SNL crap roll off his back, acted like it wasn't worth the trouble to respond to it.
