Sexy thangs: Jon Hamm plays Scott Brown on SNL

posted at 7:02 am on January 31, 2010 by Michelle

Live from New York last night on SNL: Dashing actor Jon Hamm plays Massachusetts Senator-elect Scott Brown driving Democrat leaders to extreme distraction. Delish (via Mediaite):

NRO’s Robert Costa got reaction from Sen.-elect Brown here.

For those of you wondering when Sen.-elect Brown will be seated, word is he’ll be certified and sworn in by Feb. 11, according to the Washington Times:

An issue that refuses to go away, which surrounded the Scott Brown Senate campaign, was when Senator-elect Brown (R – MA) would be certified and sworn in as Massachusetts’s new U.S. Senator.

The Washington Times spoke to Mr. Brown’s spokesman Felix Browne, who said they expect the GOP’er from Wrentham to be seated in the Senate by February 11.

…According to the Brown spokesman, Senator-elect Brown and his staff are monitoring votes on the Hill as they come up. “If there is anything of concern, he may seek to expedite his seating,” said Mr. Browne. However, as of now, “hi-jinks or chicanery” is not suspected at the state level, Mr. Browne noted. “The process appears to be unfolding and proceeding in a natural way.”

I put my headphones on so I wouldn’t wake wifey but I couldn’t help laughing aloud. She’ll understand when she watches the video.

Why is ex-Senator Kirk still voting? GOP? Is anyone home?

tommylotto on January 31, 2010 at 7:24 AM

Now that was hilarious! I wish I had stayed up and watched it last night. Thanks Michelle.

tommylotto on January 31, 2010 at 7:24 AM

I sent an email to McConnell and Kyl asking the same question. Kirk needs to go back down Pennsylvania Ave to the cave on K street from which he emerged.

Credo on January 31, 2010 at 7:42 AM

That was actually one of the funniest skits I’ve seen in a long time. I watched last night and laughed uproriously. Jon Hamm as Scott Brown FTW!

cubachi on January 31, 2010 at 7:45 AM

So,Scott Brown is number 1,
and Hopey/Changey has lost
his lustre!!!

canopfor on January 31, 2010 at 7:47 AM

It was funny. The opening skit on the SOTU had some funny parts as well. The rest of the show blew!

bernzright777 on January 31, 2010 at 7:48 AM

The funniest was when Robert Byrd had his “fantasy” and it was in B&W! Hilarious.

bernzright777 on January 31, 2010 at 7:49 AM

Now I know why Pelosi drifts off into
outerspace at the SOTUA!!

canopfor on January 31, 2010 at 7:52 AM

Bryd and the Charleton dancers!!

canopfor on January 31, 2010 at 7:54 AM

Barney Frank’s sexual fantasies . . . .

Gross.

AZCoyote on January 31, 2010 at 7:54 AM

Nailed the Liberal Party to a T!!

canopfor on January 31, 2010 at 7:55 AM

Very funny, but also a little sad. Makes me wonder how many Americans are grasping at anything new that gives them some sense of hope DC will stop destroying the economy and our freedoms. Perhaps the hope Scott Brown will be a secret super sexy weapon to halt the dem’s irrational leftism is enough to make it through another month.

ray on January 31, 2010 at 8:03 AM

That was the best out of SNL in quite a while. However, what is the kernel of truth necessary for all comedy to work? The Libtard Progressives are going to try to make Brown out as just another pretty face whose ideas should not be treated with any serious consideration. To the extent that Brown will show an independent side, some Republicans will join in as well.

BigAlSouth on January 31, 2010 at 8:05 AM

“If there is anything of concern, he may seek to expedite his seating,”

I guess increasing the debt ceiling by 15% thereby sending us further into penury as well as eliminating the need to bring it up for increase again prior to the mideterms doesn’t count as “anything of concern.”

Republicans suck,just not as much as Dems.

JiangxiDad on January 31, 2010 at 8:11 AM

I think they nailed Frank. Wait. Let me rephrase that.

MikeA on January 31, 2010 at 8:14 AM

Wait a second… What about zero’s raising the debt ceiling and his proposed 3+ Trillion dollar budget? Brown needs to be seated. Now.

Key West Reader on January 31, 2010 at 8:21 AM

Only YouTube on iPhone … :(
oh well willcatch it later.

¡ Hey Michelle ! Keep on keepin’ on keepin’ ‘em honest.

silverfox on January 31, 2010 at 8:23 AM

Finally, an SNL skit that didn’t stop being funny after the first 30 seconds.

But the most satirical part of the skit wasn’t that Scott Brown would wear a groovy star spangled vest, but that Pelosi and Boxer would actually have a healthy sexual attraction for a man.

CarolynM on January 31, 2010 at 8:24 AM

Eh. Is this the best SNL can come up with?

OmahaConservative on January 31, 2010 at 8:28 AM

I saw every bit of this coming save the Byrd part, which was amusing. Still, it was derivative of the “Mango” bit from the ’90s that somehow made Chris Kattan a big enough deal to merit his own feature flop (Corky Romano).

Everybody marveled at the “accuracy” of Tina Fey’s Palin turns in 2008. Looks like that has more to do with Fey’s professionalism/animus than anything else, when you look at the way Democrats are coddled on the show nowadays. As I wrote before, Fred Armisen’s Obama falls far below the bar of previous SNL POTUS lampoons. And Nancy Pelosi is a stammering, short-tempered, clueless, constantly blinking bug-eyed 69-year-old woman spending her vast fortune trying desperately to hold on to her fifties, and she’s played here like a calm, competent cougar in one of those horny lawyer TV shows. Come on!

L.N. Smithee on January 31, 2010 at 8:31 AM

Sadly, this very true to form.

Mark Foley comes to mind.

canopfor on January 31, 2010 at 8:46 AM

Meh. The Barney Frank part was funny. The rest? Not so much. Looks to me like the dem writers at SNL want to Palinize Brown by suggesting that he won cuz he’s soooooo good lookin’. It didn’t have a thing to do with his opposition to health care, you see. The voters were mesmerized into making the wrong decision.

L.N. Smithee on January 31, 2010 at 8:31 AM

If he would start mocking the teleprompter (the head back and forth, taking it everywhere), it would be painfully (for Obama) funny.

But Armisen always has him at a desk, speaking straight to the camera.

Wethal on January 31, 2010 at 9:16 AM

Galvin is dragging his feet. Mass seated Tsongas very quickly when it suited them. Galvin claims he’s waiting for more absentee ballots, but those ballots can’t change the outcome of the election.

dogsoldier on January 31, 2010 at 9:18 AM

Solid B+…no sarcasm intended.

angryed on January 31, 2010 at 9:26 AM

FEBRUARY 11?!?

Didn’t Bill Owen win NY 23 on Nov. 4, was sworn in on Nov. 6 and voted on healthcare Nov. 7?

What’s taking them so long?

Heh. I just saw Krugman on This Week, and he says it was because Coakley didn’t know about the Red Sox. A bunch of them are still in denial, or deliberately spinning.

dogsoldier on January 31, 2010 at 9:18 AM

Let the Dems continue to drag their feet and thwart the voters’ intent to make them more angry. We like to have more of them going down in Nov. And let the Dem introduce a batch of bad bills ( an example, raising the debt limit to the sky along party line), ala Bill Jefferson Clinton’ last minute pardons days before he left office, to make the distinction of parties and the need to clean house more
obious.

bayview on January 31, 2010 at 9:59 AM

Jon Hamm also starred in this Hollywood-produced PSA in favor of the public option in health care, which was in turn parodied in this You Tube video: http://www.youtube.com/user/Optoons#p/u/22/Rxrk1T3S-sE

Mervis Winter on January 31, 2010 at 10:05 AM

“If there is anything of concern, he may seek to expedite his seating,”

Raising the debt ceiling by $1.8 Trillion is not of concern?!? Not a good sign.

swede7 on January 31, 2010 at 10:09 AM

How do Democrats get sworn in in a day or two but Republicans have to “unfold in the natural way”? I realize that their initial urge to play games had to be abandoned but I’m just looking for consistency in the process for future fun and games.

jnelchef on January 31, 2010 at 10:16 AM

I thought it was a funny bit. I was disappointed in the opening spoof of SOTU. Knocking on Coakley was okay, but it seems there was so much more that could have been done to lampoon that speech.

And Armisens impression is just kind of flat. He’s got such a long way to go to get that speaking style down….

count me disappointed overall

mctowler on January 31, 2010 at 10:21 AM

It was funny. The opening skit on the SOTU had some funny parts as well. The rest of the show blew!

bernzright777 on January 31, 2010 at 7:48 AM

Haven’t watched in years…if there’s anything good, I know HA or somebody will post it. This skit was great.

PatMac on January 31, 2010 at 10:27 AM

Fox should put Conan on Saturday nights.

Ronnie on January 31, 2010 at 10:35 AM

What’s the water-cooler buzz in MA about Brown not being seated yet?

OmahaConservative on January 31, 2010 at 10:40 AM

Where’s the taranchulas that always cover Nazi’s eyes?? Funny.

DanaSmiles on January 31, 2010 at 11:24 AM

Like others, haven’t watched SNL in years but that was some funny stuff.

Hummer53 on January 31, 2010 at 11:26 AM

funny skit.

not-senator Kirk still voting is not funny.

rbj on January 31, 2010 at 12:21 PM

OmahaConservative on January 31, 2010 at 10:40 AM

Secretary of State Galvin is a Democrat but not an moonbat ideologue partisan hack – really is a good guy.

He is following the letter of the law and it seems that Brown is OK with that.

However, if Harry should try to pull something in the next 11 days that would be in contradiction to the plain fact that we have sent a Republican senator to Washington with all that represents you’ll be able to find me at the base of the Capitol steps.

turfmann on January 31, 2010 at 12:28 PM

Strange how fast the Dems get seated…

d1carter on January 31, 2010 at 12:44 PM

An issue that refuses to go away, which surrounded the Scott Brown Senate campaign, was when Senator-elect Brown (R – MA) would be certified and sworn in as Massachusetts’s new U.S. Senator.

Gee, sorry for the inconvenience. They make it sound like the whole election thing was a real nuisance.

venividivici on January 31, 2010 at 12:58 PM

Why are they not seating him until February 11th? They don’t have to wait for the absentee ballots because his margin is too large. And why is Kirk still voting.

Enoxo on January 31, 2010 at 1:31 PM

Saw this last night… pretty funny, but I’m sick of Kristen Wigg playing Pelosi pretty straight. She doesn’t even try to make the frozen, cracked, terrifying face stuck on the speaker’s face that we’re all used to. It’s like Armison when he stopped trying to do Obama’s voice. An attempt at an impersonation would make it a hell of a lot funnier. I can’t help but wonder if these liberals are just that pathetic that they will only go so far, in fear that they’ll alienate their heroes if they go any further. The least they could have done was strap some cantaloupes on her stomach.

RightWinged on January 31, 2010 at 1:49 PM

I actually tuned in to watch SNL yesterday night, while reading about meatloaf and cucumbers ( hehe) expecting to see something funny about the slimeball John Edwards .
But I guess a good looking repub needs to be ridiculed to make the ugly dems feel good about their fugliness !

macncheez on January 31, 2010 at 1:51 PM

Hah…Sen. Byrd a the flapper. Funny.

SouthernGent on January 31, 2010 at 3:57 PM

Why is ex-Senator Kirk still voting? GOP? Is anyone home?
tommylotto on January 31, 2010 at 7:24 AM

As usual no one is at home, but they are going to fight like hell to make sure they Dems don’t push through Obamacare! Yeh, just like they fought to make sure the entire bill was read before Christmas and just like all the other times they have promised to stand up to the Dems. They are a bunch of spineless imbeciles who are afraid of their own shadow and it’s time they were thrown out in exchange for real men, not the rats they are.

flytier on January 31, 2010 at 4:13 PM

Funny…except I had to avert my eyes each time Barney Frank’s character was on the screen.

Sgt. Hartman on January 31, 2010 at 7:27 PM

“The process appears to be unfolding and proceeding in a natural way.”

I thought natural was the Mass. legislator changing the rules for filling dear ole Ted’s seat last year so they could eliminate any chance at having a Republican getting elected. How did that “natural process” work out for the Dem’s?

chickasaw42 on January 31, 2010 at 9:14 PM

I just scared the cat LOL! It still won’t make me watch SNL….
