Video: The exquisite timing of SNL

Do you think Harry Reid was watching SNL last night? Obviously the writers concocted this sketch before anyone knew about Reid’s remarks in the Halperin/Heileman book being released tomorrow, but they couldn’t have timed this any better if they had tried. I imagine that Lorne Michael’s staff was doing some high-fives when the news broke yesterday, knowing this was running after the football game:
That’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in years on SNL. In fact, I could easily have seen South Park doing this same exact skit, with Randy as MacGruber. I expect that Trey and Matt may have something coming up in March that’s more specific to Reid.
