A few chuckles in each and in each for the same reason: It’s not the material that’s funny, it’s the impersonations. Armisen gets better at mimicking The One’s speech patterns every week and the crazy McCain rally lady operates essentially as an in-joke, with all of the humor contained in simply getting the reference. Eh.

They seem to rise to the occasion for the ‘Cuda, though, which is good news for her cameo this weekend. According to campaign sources, she’ll be spoofing herself and Tina Fey, whatever that means. Exit question: Good idea or bad one?
