SNL: GOP 2012 Undeclared Candidates Debate

Crooks and Liars- By Heather

Since so many of the undeclared potential presidential contenders decided to skip the first official Republican primary debate, Saturday Night Live decided to treat us to their version of the GOP 2012 Undeclared Candidates Debate, with Tina Fey returning as Sarah Palin.

The segment also featured Bill Hader as Fox’s Shepard Smith, Jason Sudeikis as Mitt Romney, Darrell Hammond as Donald Trump, Kristen Wiig as Michele Bachmann, Bobby Moynihan as Newt Gingrich and Kenan Thompson as the Rent is Too Damn High Party’s Jimmy McMillan.

As expected, Fey stole the show with her Palin impression.

SNL Returns with Christine O’Donnell as First Political Target with Masturbation Parody

Crooks & Liars- By Heather

September 26, 2010 04:00 AM

Saturday Night Live started off their season premier with having a bit of fun at Delaware Republican Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell’s expense and her remarks on witchcraft and masturbation. I await her response where she again plays the victim card like her mentor Sarah Palin and comes on Fox and tells the rest of us how that “liberal mainstream media”, otherwise known as a comedy show on NBC is picking on her.

Congrats, internet! We did it! The Betty White episode in the books and seeing her grace the Studio 8H stage was a delight. And joining her for the momentous episode was a murderers’ row of amazing SNL women: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, and Rachel Dratch.

The show was filled with highlights right from the start. The cold open featured Betty in the recurring “Lawrence Welk Show” sketch – always a showcase for the female cast members. And seeing all the ladies together, surrounding their comedy godmother was a fitting way to kick things off.

WATCH:

Betty then came out for her monologue, getting her much deserved spotlight. While she was thrilled that Facebook was to thank for the special night, she proceeded to rip on everyone’s favorite time-waster. “In my day, seeing pictures of people’s vacations, was considered a punishment.” Gold.

Tina Fey Unveils Palin’s Next Career Move In Return To SNL (VIDEO)

Huffington Post |  Alex Leo First Posted: 04-11-10 12:20 AM

Tina Fey hosted “Saturday Night Live” this week with musical guest Justin Bieber and while the latter’s fans likely had no idea what was going on, the former reprised her role as Sarah Palin. Fey, hosting for the second time, dressed in a leather jacket and unveiled Palin’s new career path–owning her very own network. It will feature shows such as “Todd!”, “Are You Smarter than a Half-Term Governor?” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (that’s right, SNL firmly landed in Team Coco).

Not only did the sketch mock Palin, her family, and the Republican Party (note the Kenneth the Pag-ing of Bobby Jindal), but it also went after the tea-partiers for their constant misspellings and grammar mistakes in their protest signs.

SNL Takes On Rahm Emanuel’s Apology For ‘Retarded’ Comment (VIDEO)

HuffPo-  First Posted: 02- 7-10 09:47 AM   |   Updated: 02- 7-10 11:21 AM

Played by Andy Samberg, Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel offered up an “Even-Tempered Apology” last night on SNL for his use of the word “retarded.” While Samberg’s impression occasionally veered toward his take on Mark Wahlberg, he captured the fiery Emanuel perfectly. Addressing Palin’s call for him to be fired, he screamed:

“You come after me on facebook? What, are your fourteen? Here’s a status update: Grow the f–k up! Poke me again, and I will write s–t on your wall so obsene your computer will cry. Go back to the tundra, you f–king gimmick!”

Samberg then summed things up succinctly: “In conclusion, boo f–king hoo. Get over it.”

Hunky Scott Brown Is Every Democrat’s Fantasy (VIDEO)

First Posted: 01-31-10 09:56 AM   |   Updated: 01-31-10 10:17 AM

In an “SNL” sketch last night, Democrats unable to find the appeal of newly elected Scott Brown were swooned by a winking, shirtless Jon Hamm. The guest host was hilarious impersonating the Massachusetts Senator, perfectly playing the role of hunk and showing up in the fantasies of Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, and others.

An infatuated Pelosi (Kristen Wiig) was quite taken with Brown’s political come-ons: “I want to introduce something to the floor. It’s called ‘Your Panties.'”

‘SNL’ Takes On The State Of The Union (VIDEO)

Huffington Post |  Dan Abramson First Posted: 01-31-10 09:27 AM   |   Updated: 01-31-10 09:39 AM

SNL took on the State of the Union last night, cutting together clips of Fred Armisen as Obama with actual shots of displeased Republicans and ecstatic Democrats.

Armisen opened the speech taking shots at Martha Coakley. “Our nominee Martha Coakley was single most incompetent candidate ever to seek public office in this nation’s history,” he announced to rousing applause from both the crowd and Joe Biden (Jason Sudeikis), adding, “Martha Coakley, you are a disgrace. You couldn’t beat Dick Cheney for mayor of Berkeley.”

The speech then moved on to address the problems that inherited from the Bush administration upon moving into the White House:

“Dishes piled high in the sink, sheets that hadn’t been washed in months – perhaps years, floors littered with candy wrappers and dust bunnies, and a fridge filled with food long past its expiration date. “

Mocking the actual response to the speech, the sketch repeatedly cut to Democrats wildly applauding, then juxtaposed them with stone-faced Republicans. But a surprise attendee, Brendan Fraser, was won over, as he reacted with his signature clap.

Armisen closed by addressing health care reform: “To be honest, I could either way on that. If you want it, pass it. Whatever, I’ll sign it. It’s your call. I really don’t care anymore.”
