Mini-Rumination: Sour Grapes at SNL?

So as many of you may know by now (and congratulations to those of you who don’t), Kelly Ripa, after a year of working Regis-free with a blinding assortment of Regis-wannabes, now has a new, permanent co-host:  former football player Michael Strahan.  Strahan won the job after apparently outperforming a number of other candidates.

One of those other candidates who auditioned often alongside the Talentless Ms. Ripa during her year of co-host promiscuity was Seth Meyers, head writer and anchorman of “Weekend Update” on Saturday Night Live.

So is it just a coincidence, or a case of really sour grapes, that on last week’s show, SNL did a mean-spirited (but not very funny) spoof of Live with Kelly and Michael that made the show’s hosts – and especially the victorious Strahan – seem like colossal idiots?
