SNL goes (honestly) Hawaiian



I've always been told honesty is the best policy. And this sketch has hit the nail on the head. Unfortunately Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona denounced this skit and is sending letters of protest to "Saturday Night Live" executive producer Lorne Michaels and Johnson's agent.
"While I always appreciate a good laugh, 'Saturday Night Live' went too far in its negative depiction of Hawai'i's native people and tourism industry," Aiona said. "During these critical economic times, when tourism dollars are scarce, we cannot let such distortions go unchecked. The people of Hawai'i are among the most generous, diverse and culturally sensitive people in the world."

I think Duke needs to "Aloha...Aloha it hard."
