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.

“Saturday Night Live” combined Sarah Palin and the disaster movie “2012” last night to imagine a world in which Palin had won the presidency. They used footage from the ’08 race and Palin’s recent publicity blitz along with the trailer for the John Cusack post-apocalyptic action film to create a harrowing end-times scenario in which Glenn Beck is one step away from the presidency.

SNL Vs. Obama: Sketch Details All The President’s Failures Since Taking Office (VIDEO)

Huffington Post |  Alex Leo First Posted: 10- 4-09 08:50 AM   |   Updated: 10- 4-09 10:11 AM

“Saturday Night Live” opened its show with a particularly harsh send-up of President Obama last night. The critique focused on failed promises, as a checklist repeatedly appeared to the right of the screen that had “NOT DONE” checked off next to the following categories: global warming, immigration reform, gays in the military, limits on executive powers, torture prosecutions, closing Gitmo, withdrawing from Iraq, improving the status of the fight in Afghanistan, health care reform, etc.

“There are those on the right who are angry. They think that I’m turning this great country into something that resembles the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany, but that’s just not the case. But when you look at my record it’s very clear what I’ve done so far and that is nothing. Nada. Almost one year and nothing to show for it.”

While the president is three and a half months shy of his one year mark, we get the point. The sketch made clear that this is a critique of Obama from the left: “I just don’t see why the right is so riled up, I mean how do you think the left feels. They’re the ones who should be mad.” And the writers pointed out that with a super majority in the Senate, getting his agenda through shouldn’t be a particularly difficult undertaking.

SNL: Rush Limbaugh Electric Shocks Michael Steele On Update (VIDEO)

Huffington Post |  Katherine Thomson   |   March 8, 2009 09:01 AM

“Saturday Night Live” covered the Michael Steele v. Rush Limbaugh story this week by having Steele (Keenan Thompson) stop by Weekend Update to talk with Seth Meyers.

He turned around to reveal the electric node in his head that delivered a shock every time the GOP leader said something not Rush approved.

“Rush Limbaugh is just an entertainer. [Bzzt} Ah! A great entertainer! [Bzzt] Ah! A beacon of truth and light in times of uncertainty!”

Kudos to Thompson for playing electrocuted so well.

SNL: Jonas Brothers, Alec Baldwin, Jack McBrayer, Cameron Diaz & More (VIDEO)

Huffington Post |  Katherine Thomson   |   February 15, 2009 08:56 AM

Alec Baldwin hosted SNL this week with musical guest The Jonas Brothers, who also joined Baldwin for a skit and starred in the Digital Short.

The show opening was a deluded Republican strategy session, seen here.

During his monologue, Baldwin took a moment for a message.

“I want to say, thank you Christian Bale, who has replaced me as the person most synonymous with recorded celebrity meltdown. Thank you Christian.”

He then called on fellow “30 Rock” cast member Kenneth the Page player Jack McBrayer, sitting in the audience, who proved to be more popular than Baldwin.

SNL lampoons Pelosi, Reid: ‘Stimulus will bum you out’

Raw Story- David Edwards and Jeremy Gantz
Published: Sunday February 8, 2009

After a contentious week in Washington reworking the massive stimulus bill, Democratic Congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid didn’t get along very well during a mock press conference on Saturday Night Live.

Reid, played by Fred Armisen, said the size of the stimulus bill now awaiting vote in the Senate “will just bum you out.” But Pelosi, played by Kristen Wiig, admitted “if we thought you’d be cool with a trillion, we’d take it in a hardbeat.”

Obama’s push for a new era of bipartisanship isn’t all its cracked up to be, Pelosi said during the Feb. 7 broadcast. “For 8 years they didn’t seem to care much about reaching across the aisle, but now it’s ‘Boo hoo, what about us.’ Give me a break….

“After they treated the Democrats like sewer rats for 8 years, we were worried that bipartisanship didn’t matter to them,” Pelosi said sarcastically.

Huffington Post |   February 1, 2009 09:16 AM

Last night’s Saturday Night Live open featured a President Obama who wants to tell the nation the hard truths and attempts to look forward, but just can’t stop feeling nostalgic for the good old days of the campaign trail.

Obama also warns that now that he and the nation are moving in together, there are some things we’re going to discover about each other: Obama’s grumpy in the morning, and Americans are bad with money. Biden can’t help but make an appearance as well.

“Saturday Night Live” opened with Diane Sawyer interviewing outgoing VP Dicky Cheney. No matter what he’s asked, Cheney regrets nothing.

Starting with topics like Iraq, Sawyer (Kristen Wiig) asks Cheney (Darrell Hammond) increasingly irrelevant, sympathetic questions. Cheney answers every question with a negative.

Sawyer: “We recently learned that my assistant has separated from her husband. Isn’t that regrettable?
Cheney: “In my opinion, no.”

“Saturday Night Live” Gitmo Ad: Going Out Of Business Sale! (VIDEO)

Huffington Post |   January 18, 2009 07:56 AM

Obama announced he’ll close it and “Saturday Night Live” had a commercial for a going-out-of-business sale from Guantanamo Bay.

“Hoods! Blindfolds! Shackles! Chains! Dog bones for people! If it’s used to humanely detain or interrogate prisoners, we’ve got it! And we’re passing the savings onto you.”

SNL host Rosario Dawson played one satisfied customer who purchased a portrait of Donald Rumsfeld while Jason Sudeikis was the CIA agent advertising the sale.

“Gitmo bargains, gitmo savings, gitmo of everything you need!”
