Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson caused massive outrage across the country and even liberals were stunned by his heartlessness. He said:
“This guy is kind of cool — Dan Crenshaw,” as a photo of Crenshaw wearing his eyepatch flashed on the screen, “You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate for Texas and not a hit-man in a porno movie. I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever.”
Dan Crenshaw responded with class, dignity, and wisdom: “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,” he tweeted.

Dan then challenged the SNL team to donate some money to charities that help wounded vets taking an even higher road than he did before. But Sarah Palin took a different path.
She was mocked by Saturday Night Live in a rather vicious way and knows the power they have to define a person even if the facts are off. She went right to where the blame belongs, Lorne Michaels, and let him have it. Sarah wrote:
“Why SNL Sucks So Bad; Desperation Became Boring Irrelevancy
Lorne Micheals, you’re the leader of the pack. Are you going to let a young do-nothing not-even-funny “comic” and/or comedic team continue the degradation of SNL?
With all the grace I can muster I challenge you to wrestle back control of the show you’d shepherded, but allowed to be hijacked by some pretty sick – and boringly uncreative – young men. You’re going down with the ship, Lorne. Sad to see your life’s work and worth crumble under the heartless no-talents.
And for shame, group-think audience, going along to get along yukking up anti-American mockery of America’s finest. A military vet that accomplished more in one tour of duty than you could dream of in your lifetime, willing to go through hell so you’ll sleep well, is the object of scorn of only the shallow and selfish.
There’s so much creativity and beauty out there, Lorne. Talent waiting in the wings that will edify and lift up this great country, all the while brilliantly entertaining a deserving audience. Tap into the new and truly talented, Lorne, and feel worthwhile again.
Look forward to you meeting the challenge, SNL.”
