UPDATE:
The Salahis did not appear on SNL’s opening scene. But the show did begin with a clip lampooning the party crashers and a Secret Service of enablers.

WATCH VIDEO HERE

The party-crashing couple that embarrassed the Secret Service and brought scrutiny to protocol at White House social events by getting into a state dinner may be in on the joke.

According to The Washington Post blog The TV Column, Tareq and Michaele Salahi are slated to appear in tonight’s opening skit of Saturday Night Live:

As of Thursday, the NBC late-night show was planning to open with a skit in which, with cast members playing all the parts, President Obama would give a speech with his cabinet behind him. Suddenly, he’s interrupted by the Salahis, who have crashed the speech — Michaele Salahi in a red,red sari, just like the one she wore when she and her husband allegedly crashed that White House state dinner last month.

The Salahis were asked about a possible SNL appearance on Friday, when the couple arrived in court. They were there over a dispute on a $925 landscaping bill. Tareq Slahi smiled, when he was asked about the appearance, but said nothing, according to The Warren County Report Newspaper.

Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively is set to host Saturday’s show.

“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’s Weekend Update took on President Obama’s decision to exclude Fox News from his Sunday media tour last night. Despite granting interviews to ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and Univision he left Fox off his roster prompting Chris Wallace to call his White House “crybabies.” During a long (and generally funny) opening sketch, SNL touched on one of the many reasons the president may have chosen to skip Fox on his media tour: Glenn Beck.

Not only did Beck call Obama a racist, but since then has been on a tour of insanity, upping his already nutty game.

Weekend Update took on specific aspects of Glenn’s character: His propensity to misspell things, to use that muppet-like voice, and, of course, invoke Hitler.
