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…
 

Et Tu, SNL?

newVideoPlayer("SNL_Alex_the_Blogger.flv", 475, 376);SNL‘s Fred Armisen impersonates lots of people. He’s delivered on the left-handed fey rock set: Liberace, Phil Spector, Lou Reed and Prince. Nailed the evil, weird quad of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Vicente Fox, Hugo Chávez and Steve Jobs. He’s good, right? Now, he’s added “political comedian” Nicholas Fehn, a shaggy, stammering hipster and ADD victim: “I do the type of comedy…Basically what I do is I take headlines … I take newspapers. I read them. And I comment on them. It’s my own skewed view on things.” Imagine our massive meta moment. Read more on Et Tu, SNL?…
 

Ford Best Known For Short-Lived Chevy Chase Gag

All presidents — even temporary appointed presidents — leave a rich legacy to history or whatever. Ronald Reagan left that nice little airport he built, Bill Clinton somehow caused 9/11, and of course Thomas Jefferson fathered black children.
