‘SNL’ Back In Spotlight During Election Season
Saturday Night Live is back with a vengeance with spot on parodies of every popular candidate on the election trail. They have 6 weeks to entertain audiences who will tune in every Saturday night and on Thursdays for weekly specials. No political candidate is safe as the prime-time players make fun of elections, news shows and entire news organizations.
Mitt Romney was the main target all week with his comment about 47% of the people being “victims” and “not taking responsibility for themselves”. Jason Sudeikis does a great job playing Mitt Romney with his aloof meaner and his out of touch sensibilities.
Jason Sudeikis has his hands full this political season which is why he came back to SNL at least until January. Jason also plays Vice-President Joe Biden, which is even better than his Mitt Romney. He will definitely be the star, even though Jay Pharoah was incredible as the new Barack Obama. He replaces Fred Armisen, who could never pull off the tough feat.
Fox News was again a major target for the SNL cast, this time going after the delusional Fox and Friends. No news cast starts off with more lies and deceptions than this show, which starts at 6 o’clock in the morning every day.
Even though Sudeikis and Pharoah do a great job, no one can match the ratings and excitement that Tina Fey created when playing Sarah Palin. She was by far the best in the long line of political parodies over the long history of Saturday Night Live.
