Is the 2016 Election Beyond Satire? Ask Lorne Michaels

nytimes.com — Bernie Sanders was a no-show at the " Saturday Night Live'' after-party in the Flatiron district. It may be one of the coolest parties in town, but Sanders didn't care. The improbably hip 74-year-old candidate didn't need any validation; he felt pret-ty, pret-ty, pret-ty good about his performance.

post-gazette.com — MANCHESTER, N.H. - Hillary Clinton first grabbed the national spotlight 47 years ago as an idealistic young feminist, chiding the paternalistic establishment in her Wellesley commencement speech.

Bully Trump’s skin is both orange and thin

lasvegassun.com — The White House has a strange, mind-warping effect on its occupants. Presidents are exalted and fawned over. Their every whim is indulged and their image is endlessly and lovingly replicated on every wall. Reaching the pinnacle of power, raised up on the shoulders of Americans to the highest office, often has the perverse consequence of making presidents more paranoid, introverted, insecure, reckless or downright nuts.

Maureen Dowd: Sarah Palin saves feminism

kansascity.com — It's a tough call to figure out which place is more benighted: Hollywood or Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia was pulling ahead with all its beheadings and its top cleric's fatwa on chess as "the work of Satan."
