During Che's opening monologue with his fellow "Saturday Night Live" star Colin Jost, Che explained that his mother would not be watching the show on Monday night.

"My mother is not watching," Che said. "She says she doesnít like watching white award shows because you guys donít thank Jesus enough."

He continued, "Thatís true. The only white people that thank Jesus are Republicans and ex-crackheads."

Well, I guess he doesn't like ex-crackheads or the fact that they found something (ANYTHING) to straighten their lives out. He'd rather look down his nose and make snide remarks. I guess he'd rather that they be non-ex-crackheads... knowing they'd still vote democrat.

Sounds like a compliment to me. She is saying that white lefties don't thank Jesus therefore she won't watch the show. Sounds about right to me.

Did I miss something?

They were thinking "Why would anyone thank a carpenter for winning an Emmy?".

Where did I say it was funny? I didnít, I said it was a joke that flew over the heads of cons, as you just proved. Sometimes a joke is funny, sometimes itís not, sometimes itís mildly funny. Lighten up.

The funny thing is that Harvey and Daeida Wilcox, the married couple that founded Hollywood as a ranching community in 8/1886 (I think), were devout conservative Christians.
