Does she have a point or is it too PC?
Yes, and yes, IMO. I didn't see the skit, but I did notice that Mayor Bloomberg's signer does some very dramatic signing -- I think she intends it to be amusing. However, I think that making fun of languages is not in style, these days. It's not politically correct. It used to be okay. Thinking back, I can recall Sid Caesar doing pseudo-German nonsense, and various comedians doing Yiddish accents, Spanish, Indian English (Peter Sellars in The Party).

Here's Sid Caesar doing comic French, German(?), and Japanese: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBLM16fQ1es.

A skit with the creator of Family Guy about the hearing impaired was more offensive. But, Marlee Matlin appeared at the end of that skit. So, she might have selfish reasons.

The SCTV cast were a bit more discerning .

The show was taped in Edmonton, Alberta , and had its own flavor.

The Edmonton climate is just short of Arctic.

Yet the shopping mall there has a huge tropical grotto in the midst

of the sub arctic.

The extraction of the tar sands is major energy source at the moment.

"Survival" may mean "returning," as Darrell Hammond is named to replace the late Don Pardo: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/19/bu...ight-live.html
