In a different age, SNL would have covered this ground weeks or months ago; as it is, they can’t even field a decent impression of the president anymore. Like many SNL skits, this is twice as long as it should have been, but … it has its moments, especially when Stewart apes Beck’s mannerisms. Too bad he’s not more of an impersonator or else he could have taken a shot at that Kermit voice Beck does when he wants to mock people he disagrees with.
One glaring flaw: Not nearly enough props.
