I usually watch about the first six or seven minutes of Saturday Night Live, then I’ll switch to something entertaining. What I’m saying is that the first few minutes of that show are usually all that are worth watching. Last night’s opening was no exception. You should watch it if you missed it, or perhaps you just want to indulge again.

Told you it was good.

From yesterday’s Saturday Night Live cold open, President George W. Bush (Will Ferrell) announces he’s entering the presidential race and assesses the current crop of GOP candidates.

Watch it if you missed it or just wish to see it again.

In last night’s Saturday Night Live cold open, President Obama called on a special guest to help deliver a personal message to Russian President Vladimir Putin…

In case you missed Saturday Night Live’s cold opening on gun control last night, have a look…

I realize this was meant as humor, but it really just about summarizes where we are right now in reality. The NRA pretty much has this debate bought and paid for.
 

Undecided voters

Most Americans already know for whom they will be voting in the presidential election now just 44 days in the future. In those 44 days, both campaigns and their “super-pacs” will be spending a whole lot of money courting those few who do not yet know for whom they will be voting. Last night’s Saturday Night Live gave us a pretty accurate portrayal of the undecided voters…

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?
 

SNL GOP Debate

I have to admit that the Saturday Night Live Republican debates are a heck of a lot more entertaining than the real ones. Last night they presented the Marriott TV debate. Marriott TV is the only television network with fewer viewers than Bloomberg TV (where this past week’s real debate was broadcast).

Not only are the SNL debates more entertaining, I believe they are a lot closer to reality. Our Republicans… can’t live with them and can’t live with them.
