Video: SNL on debate – “The worst thing that ever happened”

posted at 12:31 pm on October 7, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

The recently reinvigorated cast of Saturday Night Live has been having a field day with the 2012 election and their ratings have shown a payoff for their efforts. Yes, the majority of their skits still tend toward skewering conservatives and Republicans, but to give credit where credit is due, they do take some shots at Obama when the target is too obvious to ignore. Such was the case with last week’s debate.

As pointed out over at Mediaite, they lined up their fake MSNBC cast for a panel hosted by their version of Rachel Maddow and featuring Chris Matthews with Al Sharpton to talk about “the worst thing that ever happened anywhere.”

SNL had a field day mocking MSNBC’s reaction to President Obama‘s debate performance, from Al Sharpton coming up with every excuse in the book to defend how badly Obama did to Chris Matthews yelling at the camera like a drunken man-child.

Rachel Maddow opened by calling the debate “The Worst Thing That Happened Anywhere” before asking her co-hosts for their reaction. Sharpton first threw out altitude poisoning as a possibility before Matthews insisted that Obama’s real problem was not speaking up enough. As Matthews argued, “you win a debate” by screaming at people incoherently until they shut up.

They still managed to get in a collateral damage shot at conservatives by bringing in a fake S.E. Cupp, portrayed as a pretty but vapid observer who had no comments beyond smiling over Obama’s defeat. But even with that, it was a fairly glaring attack not just on Obama’s poor performance, but the totally vacuous nature of the MSNBC prime time lineup. The roughly four minute video follows and, for once, you may want to actually watch. The show stealer is, beyond a doubt, the Sharpton character.

Bonus: Doug Mataconis has the video of SNL’s other segment on the debate itself. The President had a bad night on SNL no matter how you slice it, and they reach a far more diverse audience than primarily conservative leaning media.

It is very very funny. Of course the other skits that night were all sort of pro Obama and anti Romney. But a bit of a mix up is refreshing.

Mr. Joe on October 7, 2012 at 12:37 PM

Four years of not touching Obama for comedy is pathetic. About time they at least start to brush up against him a little bit.

MikeknaJ on October 7, 2012 at 12:39 PM

I liked the weekend update skit: Is there anything more exciting than Joe Biden thinking it is up to him to get the lead back.

Blake on October 7, 2012 at 12:47 PM

The debate “parody” was a hackerama propaganda special. You see: Romney was simply “lying” and Barry was just distracted by his anniversary. And let’s not forget to mention multiple times in there that “It’s Bush’s Fault! It’s Bush’s Fault!” anyway. Oh yea, that was just “balanced” HILARITY, Jazz!

Pretty funny but the Madcow actor looked too feminine. Lose the make-up. The Matthews character needs more anger and spittle. Sharpton was right on the money.

Wait. So it is possible to make fun of Obama? Who knew? Oh yeah, everyone on Hot Air.

SAZMD on October 7, 2012 at 12:54 PM

The narrative has been derailed.

That is the single most important development of the debate. The narrative that portrayed Obama as a brilliant orator and smartest president ever is now obvious nonsense. The narrative portral of Mitt as an inarticulate greed-head Mormon cultist is also destroyed.

O-boats will rationalize. But most folks will believe what they see.

As a result, it will become acceptable to criticize and mock Obama and take Mitt seriously in circles where either would have been considered apostasy and resulted in shunning.

Preference cascade is gathering momentum.

novaculus on October 7, 2012 at 12:55 PM

Weak sauce. Even with Romney’s masterful performance, they HAD to depict him as a liar while Obama was just preoccupied or not himself. Not surprised, but I guess that was a “skewering” of Obama by SNL standards. The MSNBC meltdown one was much better.

Their “shots” at Obama don’t come close to getting at the sick truth of Progressivism, yet even their sideswipes at Romney and the Right exploit hardened and irredeemable caricatures.

The Maddeau imitation, -poorly done. The comedian was heavily made-up, and where was Maddeau’s goofy man-glasses? Voice wrong. The best Maddeau imitation SNL ever had was done by one of their guys, youtube has been scrubbed.

The Matthews imitation, voice was not even close.

Their new little Bammie actor, poor as well. The best little Bammie was done by Steve Bridges (RIP) and was banned from network TV. The best little Bammie voice is still Rush Limbaugh’s, by far.

Still mild treatment for Obama. They conceded he lost but made fun of the media talking heads instead. Then they still used Romney as the debate sight gag for stumbling on a single word. Yep, I know that was even a shot a the media picking on such a small slip, but where was Obama doing the double nostril nose-dive?

There is a limit to what they’ll push when making fun of Obama.

hawkdriver on October 7, 2012 at 1:07 PM

Romney needs to tweak Barack with Bill Maher’s insight about Obama’s performance at the next debate and ask:

Mr. President, one of you big Hollywood donors wondered what happened to his contribution. I’m sure the American people would like to know ‘What does 1 million dollars worth of weed even look like?’

profitsbeard on October 7, 2012 at 1:08 PM

they do take some shots at Obama when the target is too obvious to ignore. Such was the case with last week’s debate.

He provided 1001 reasons to mock him, since he first appeared onto the DC scene, alas.

It took for his entire messianic meme to deflate before they woke up. Now they, and the media, are trying to save the 1% credibility they have left. May they all suffocate from eating his sh*t. It ain’t Beluga caviar, fools.

We should somehow give ‘credit’ for them being unable to sweep something under the rug instead of being plain old honest in the first place, you say? That’s like giving a criminal a lighter charge because he finally fessed up after denying the original accusation for four years.

Imagine Obama being judged like anyone else. Not the First Black President, not the First Black President of the Harvard Law Review, not the Nobel Peace Prize Winner, not the Lightbringer who will cool the planet and stop the rise of the oceans. But just a guy, who has to make the case why he should govern. Just another guy. When you look at him like that … he does NOT look good.

I’m also finding mixed reactions when viewing political cartoons elsewhere (like cable.com), where so many simply take the position that Mitt was lying his ass off all the way through.

Ok, if you know me, you know I’m not a Mitt fan – but “lying” – really? Did I miss something?

Obama can lie his ass off til the cows come home and these nitwits don’t care, but Mitt calling him on it and citing actual facts is… “lying”?

On the anniversary – the Obamas thought the world would sympathize with them having to be there, instead of ‘celebrate’. Instead it all backfired, as 70 million Americans and the rest of the world saw a Big Dummy exposed nakid.

HotAir is becoming the YouTube version of ‘Twitchy’.

Anybody else remember — back in the day — when HotAir used to do actual articles on weekends and especially on Sundays after the Friday night document dump(s) and the resulting responses?

The other important Conservative sites do — because they’re still doing it.

For example — here’s one Friday night breaking topic based on this story by CBS Sharyl Attkisson:

Lt. Col. Wood has told CBS News and congressional investigators that his 16-member team and a six-member State Department elite force called a Mobile Security Deployment team left Libya in August, just one month before the Benghazi assault. Wood says that’s despite the fact that US officials in Libya wanted security increased, not decreased.

Wood says he met daily with Stevens and that security was a constant challenge. There were 13 threats or attacks on western diplomats and officials in Libya in the six months leading up to the September 11 attack.

A senior State Department official told CBS News that half of the 13 incidents before September 11 were fairly minor or routine in nature, and that the Benghazi attack was so lethal and overwhelming, that a diplomatic post would not be able to repel it.

Wood, whose team arrived in February, says he and fellow security officials were very worried about the chaos on the ground. He says they tried to communicate the danger to State Department officials in Washington, D.C., but that the officials denied requests to enhance security…

Twenty-two elite Special Forces troops pulled out of Benghazi just ahead of the attack that killed Ambassador Stevens — despite the fact that everyone — including Stevens himself — was pleading for more security.

But HotAir is content with being the YouTube version of Twitchy because — uh — aw-heck if I know.

slickwillie2001 on October 7, 2012 at 2:20 PM

I thought they skewered Romney even more than the Lightbringer. They portrayed him as an unscrupulous, amoral lier, taking every bit of ground the President ceded. The basic criticism of the President was that he didn’t take the debate at all seriously, and I wasn’t enjoying the debate part of the skit. The MSNBC part was funnier.

Just an idea, if you will: Wipe out MSNBC’s credibility by showing how they’re all shills for Obama. Reveal them to the point that they can’t be trusted to tell our America the truth, and Obama loses.

Obama can’t stand on his own. Damage his Praetorian Guard beyond repair, and he loses automatically.

As a Las Vegas resident, color me absolutely stunned. The LVJR is regarded as much a liberal rag as the NYT and Wapo, and their endorsement of SCOAMF would usually just be a gimme. If Empty Chair has lost the LVRJ, there’s something big going on with the electorate that the knee-pad media is really scared to report.

I know and they didn’t pull any punches either. “On Wednesday Mitt Romney trounced the President”.

Did you read the Omaha one and the line about this not being about who you would like to have dinner with but who can save the country.

Seriously both are killer.

The Omaha endorsement was great, but I’m not familiar with them at all. Are they a typically librul paper too, where a Romney endorsement would trigger a WTF moment?

Jazz,

I understand you trying to make the “glass half full” argument with anything that appears on NBC, but it seemed to me that the Rachel Maddow character was pretty weak at best. They missed her quirky snottyness, and replaced it with the quizzical look following all the stupid answers of the others — as if she was the only bright one there.

The S.E.Cupp thingy was just downright stupid, and I personally thought the Chris Matthews bit was horrible as well. A spot-on mockery of him is really overdue, and has the greatest collection of material.

They pulled their punches on both him and on Maddow.

Only the Sharpton bit came across as mildly funny. But he is such a buffoonish character anyway, it would almost be difficult to imitate him and not have it come off as at least mildly amusing.

Overall, I thought it was pretty punk.

I think they are pretty conservative – I really don’t know.

I just liked the snark.

You’ve become a real d!ckhead. My guess is you’ve always been. Why don’t you go over to one of those “important” conservative blogs and get lost?

I dropped my subscription to the Omaha World Herald a few years ago after being a reader/subscriber for 50 years. The editorials were
all very liberal and they offered a choice of liberal columnists, Krugman, Dionne, Dowd without any conservative perspective at all.

After this endorsement I may resubscribe.

Comedians could have made a fortune off of lampooning Obama and Biden. So much money lost.

Exactly. Dupes.
