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.”

Tea Party Nation Speaks Out: ‘We Never Did This To Be Rich And Famous’

TPM Muckraker

Christina Bellantoni | January 30, 2010, 5:49PM

Tea Party Nation organizers today issued a long defense of their unraveling convention, lambasting former members they say are trying to harm the movement and outlining for the first time in great detail their event’s sponsorships and problems.

We’ve been following the travails of the upcoming Tea Party Nation convention for weeks, with key speakers withdrawing and the Tea Party Express group backing out as well thanks to feuds over the cost and expected profits of the convention.

Sherry Phillips wrote a long email to members of the Tea Party Nation mailing list titled “Setting The Record Straight.”

Phillips said organizers were encouraged to speak out against the “intense media scrutiny and attacks by former members” but she stayed silent so as not to further divisions “that are already hurting this movement.”

“We will stay silent no longer,” she wrote.

She goes into detail about convention sponsors American Liberty Alliance, American Majority and Campaign for Liberty, and said the Tea Party Express only withdrew because of their push to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada.

She calls out “former Tea Party Nation members” for “discussing their association with liberal media outlets” and “conspiring” to harm TPN and the convention.
