    SNL does OBL

    I was slipping in and out of consciousness last night during Saturday Night Live, but the parts I caught were pretty funny. Watcher of Weasels has transcribed the cold opening, which I thought was pretty funny:

    For a time, I feared that I would not be eligible to vote in this election. But recently, praise Allah, I was tracked down by two volunteers from the Kerry campaign. They signed me up, and apparently, I am now registered in Cincinatti. Since then, I have tried hard to follow the campaign, and to study both the candidates, and the issues. This has often been frustrating, as I am constantly moving from cave to cave here in the mountains of northwestern Pakistan, and thus have very little contact with the outside world. The only person I see regularly is Michael Moore. And frankly, I'm not sure I can believe half of what he tells me. So, I am not as well-informed a voter as I would like.

    I noticed the same thing he did about the audience reactions to the best lines. There was a crack about Bush early on that got laughter and applause, and two jabs at the Kerry campaign that seemed to get even more. The Teresa Heinz Kerry joke went over *really* well.

    On the whole, if you ask my opinion, I don't see much difference between the two candidates, although, and I will probably get in trouble for saying this, I cannot stand Teresa Heinz Kerry. She is awful. Just awful. Our religion forbids us to strike a woman, although I admit, I do it all the time, and I know I shouldn't. But if she were my wife, with Allah as my witness, I would not stop beating her.

    They also did another sketch from behind the scenes of the Kerry campaign with Clinton again overshadowing the lackluster Kerry, but I was having trouble concentrating by then. I also seem to remember a Robert Smigel cartoon that was political but I can't for the life of me remember anything about it. I was trying to stay focused but I had woken up to see the show purely by chance really.

    The other thing I saw was that SNL was playing on last week's lip-syncing debacle with Ashlee Simpson. The cold opening got some good laughs with OBL cracking on it, and Kate Winslet's monologue was a demonstration of how to do a live song-and-dance number(the song was about picking yourself up and starting over again while she tap danced and sung). Weekend Update brought Horatio Sanz out as Elton John to parody "Tiny Dancer" which tore Ashlee up for blaming the mistake on her band and acid reflux, and that's about all I can really remember. If I had been more awake I might have found there was less to laugh at than I think, but those were the highlights I saw...I mostly tuned Eminem out, but he sang his anti-Bush screed "Mosh" and I couldn't tell if he was lip-syncing or not. At some point I realized that I was using up my extra hour of sleeping time and the next thing I know it was morning. This one will probably make it in to the end of season reruns...
