Jesse Jackson Shows Ted Cruz How ‘Green Eggs And Ham’ Should be Read

Last night, some weasel-faced Canadian read Green Eggs and Ham to the Senate. Here’s a clip of Jesse Jackson giving the book justice on SNL after Theodore Geisel died in 1991. (It’s not the full version, unfortunately; completists can find a not-great-quality version — which we could not embed, unfortunately — here.)

Assume Wingnuts Furious Over SNL’s Cut Chuck Hagel Sketch

We do not know if the wingnuts are furious about the Chuck Hagel Sadtime Clown Face Hearings Hour, and how SNL cut it before air, probably because it was not funny. (We have just watched it; it was not funny.) We do not know if the wingnuts are furious, because Doktor Zoom is the only person who came to work today, and he is “easily distractible,” so it is pretty much up to just us to run our stupid blog today, and we do not feel like looking at wingnut blogs because we fell yesterday while we were running with our dog (not “out for a run,” because come on, just running like half a block or so, for funsies) and we did not even trip or anything, just all of a sudden our legs did not work anymore, just like when Brenda from Six Feet Under fucked those sailors so hard she got a spinal tumor in Muriel’s Wedding? (YOU’RE TERRIBLE, MURIEL!) And we hurt our wrist and our palms (and our knees), just like Jesus? Read more on Assume Wingnuts Furious Over SNL’s Cut Chuck Hagel Sketch…

Victoria Jackson, best known for her invention “The Love Toilet,” continues to wow audiences with her hilarious comedy stylings 20 years after last appearing anywhere in the media entertainment complex.

Lindsey Graham Finally Hanged, Beaten In Effigy In South Carolina

Last week, a “nationally-known pro-life supporter from Washington, D.C.,” Randall Terry, came to Greenville, South Carolina and hanged and beat up effigies of Sen. Lindsey Graham. There is a precious photo gallery of this historical event of lolz, which may prove to be the turning point in our nation’s history. Photo One: Bystanders look on in utter glee. Photo Three: Lindsey’s head appears to be taped to a stuffed duck’s ass. Photo Four: Some delinquent hits the Lindsey pinata. Photo Six: Said delinquent looks evil and also dubious as abortion guy puts his arm around him. ET CETERA. Read more on Lindsey Graham Finally Hanged, Beaten In Effigy In South Carolina…

‘OBAMAR IS A TERRIST’

It didn’t take much to make this funny, and there it was, being funny. “OBAMAR” is now the funniest way to refer to this person, the president. Thanks for a good two years, “nObAmA.” Can we please have more reactions to the SNL television show, right wing bloggers? Newsbusters alone won’t cut it. [NBC] Read more on ‘OBAMAR IS A TERRIST’…

Why Did SNL Censor This Rahm Emanuel Thing?

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] Read more on Why Did SNL Censor This Rahm Emanuel Thing?…

Keith Olbermann Gets Olbermann-y About Being Mocked On SNL

Here is one of the only non-Palin SNL skits we’ve enjoyed in recent decades: Ben Affleck mocks the crap (however inaccurately) out of that self-righteous silvery fraud, Keith Olbermann, who some of you people inexplicably enjoy. Whatever. But we can all agree that he opens himself to some friendly mockery, right, and that he could be a team player about it when and if it does happen? Well, Olbermann is of course a parody of himself in real life and has responded angrily about the evil conservatives that are bribing NBC to BRING HIM DOWN.

John McCain Throws Sarah Palin, John McCain Under The Bus

Here’s old Walnuts on SNL last night with Tiny Fey, as Sarah Palin. They mock their entire campaign, ha ha ha. It’s pretty funny! Especially near the end when McCain takes the floor out from under Palin’s 2012 chances. Awkward! And after the jump, another clip from Weekend Update with John McCain, because he was just bumming around that studio all night long. They probably offered him a hot meal.

Fake Republican John McCain Refuses To Be Transvestite On TeeVee

To appeal to the 45-year-old bitter people who enjoy the 34-year-old Saturday Night Live teevee program because they are too old/poor to actually do anything on Saturday night, 71-year-old John McCain will make a very brief appearance on SNL at exactly 11:35 p.m. tomorrow. Apparently the show’s producers wanted to put McCain in a dress and beat the shit out of him for 15 minutes, which is the usual level of comedy on SNL, but the “maverick” said no.

SNL: Hillary Clinton Is Funny. Barack Obama? Not So Much

SNL does not hate Hillary Clinton, really. It’s just that Amy Poehler gets camera time playing her, and writers can more easily gin up skits for laughs: “Over the past year, viewers tuning into Saturday Night Live have seen Hillary Clinton depicted as a ruthless, power-hungry, arrogant witch. On the rare occasions that Barack Obama’s name is so much as mentioned, he receives gentle, if not admiring, treatment.” Read more on SNL: Hillary Clinton Is Funny. Barack Obama? Not So Much…
