As most of you know, Rick Perry delivered an unusually animated speech in New Hampshire a week ago this past Friday. Some have gone so far as to say that he was either drunk or on drugs. It was a pretty safe bet that Saturday Night Live would be doing something on Perry’s speech. They did last night. Here’s SNL’s Bill Hader as Rick Perry on “Weekend Update.”

I don’t know for sure, but it seems that these Republican candidates are made out of teflon or something. Whatever they do just seems to bounce right off them as far as the Republican electorate is concerned. I mean Rick Perry shows up to give a speech obviously under the influence of something and the Republicans still think of him as a somewhat viable candidate. Herman Cain sexually harasses at least three women and the Republicans continue supporting him in the polls and throwing money in his direction. Mitt Romney flip-flops on every issue known to man and he’s still right up there with Cain. Thankfully, Santorum, Gingrich and Bachmann are done and out (though none of them seem to yet realize it).

Our Republicans are sure a fun lot, aren’t they?
