Today’s fun video: SNL’s winners & losers from shutdown

 

 

This was a pretty accurate, although not comprehensive, list. It was much better than the over-the-top music video segment on the shutdown featuring Miley Cyrus as Michelle Bachmann.

(Note: This clip comes from the NBC website, so it contains a very long commercial at the beginning. Sorry, but the network apparently has to pay for its videos somehow…)

Today’s fun video: SNL ‘explains’ the need for Obamacare

 

Signup for the Affordable Care Act begins tomorrow, but Saturday Night Live offered its take over the weekend on why health care reform is so necessary.

Included is a cameo shout out to the final episode of “Breaking Bad”, which in a sense was the ultimate story of how things go wrong when you don't have health insurance. The clip is from the NBC files, so you do have to sit through a commercial before it comes on, but it is worth it.

Those who watch the GOP debates faithfully, and those who think they've seen enough debates already, might especially like the opening sketch from Saturday Night Live.

Today’s Fun Videos: SNL bipartisan shots

Saturday Night Live had better than normal politcal satire this weekend. Of course, they’ve got lots to work with. They took shots at Republicans and Democrats such as:

The Michael Steele - Rush Limbaugh flap:



Timothy Geithner trying to get a handle on the economy:.
