It is Saturday Night Live dude Andy Samberg as your new Ballbuster-for-change, Rahm Emanuel! Supposedly this was not broadcast because it wasn’t 15 minutes long, and also has some laffs. [SNL via Fishbowl LA]

  1. That was funny. I also like the suggestion for Lieberman (although it’s too mild/tame/nice). Maybe it got cut because the average Joe/Jane doesn’t have any idea who Rahmbo is.

  2. If they had broadcast it, Rahm threatened to rip off their head and shit in the hole, but in a spirit of bi-partisanship kind of way!

    (not that I can watch the vid, since the county government blocks all of that fun shyte, other that Wonkette)

  3. It was probably cut because it maybe John “I covered a pedophile to keep a seat in the party, but Rahm is hyper-partisan” Boehner cry.

  4. I have a feeling that comments from the real Emanuel would be much, much, much more threatening and profane. Candidates for Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish Counsel in Chicago are tougher than Samberg seems.

  5. [re=184503]Serolf Divad[/re]: I want to buy some to sell on Inaug day. I am going to sell them along the Beltway which will be totally immobile for hours with people who rented cabins in West Virginia and motel rooms in PA trying to get downtown

  6. … THEN I watched another SNL video with Kristin Wiig advertising for Clear Right and that shit was funny and she’s still super hot even with that thing in her mouth.

    You know what Obama really needs? He needs a secret service detail of hot but deadly black chicks trained in the martial arts. Kinda stealing an idea from Khadaffi, I’ll admit. But still cool.

  8. I once saw Andy Samberg in NoHo and called out “yo Samberg, what’s crackin’!” I couldn’t help myself, and I am lame… and he almost spilled his coffee down his front. I felt like such an idiot afterwards, but gosh, he is cute like a puppy dog.

  9. They skipped it because it was topical and humorous. Come on people, this is SNL!

    They needed to free up 20 minutes for some skit that probably had Kristen Wiig as an obnoxious teenage girl and Kenan Thompson as a sassy black man, but like, set in the 50s or something, and then Will Forte comes in, except dressed as, like, a dinosaur or something, and uh, he performs a 5-minute rap song about milk, and then just at a perfectly appropriate stopping time they stretch the skit for another 5 minutes of repeating catchphrases until the audience gets restless

  10. [re=184493]LuckyJim[/re]: Pro tip: Download HotSpot Shield (free, but has annoying ads) and then browse Hulu to your delight as you trick the silly machine into thinking you come from an American computer. Haha, you dumb website! Can you not see that I am foreign? You have been bamboozled by my sneaky proxy device, foolish computer! Betrayed by thine programming! A-HA!

  11. Two reasons they didn’t broadcast it:
    1. NBC suits freaked out at all the bleeps.
    2. It took 1:05 to get to the punchlines. Way too long of a setup! It needed a rewrite to shorten that part.

  12. God, SNL is so completely insufferable. From the over-exaggerated intros by that fossil Don Pardo to the hooting audience that somehow always sounds like it’s the same people to the performers smirking because they can’t contain themselves over how “funny” they are. They should change the name of the show to Sucktown Live.

  13. Lorne’s probably worried about what Ari would think of it, rather than anything political. Either that or Paul Simon called from Martha’s Vineyard and told him not to run it…
