..........The most pointed sketch, however, mocked MSNBC for considering the debate the worst thing that ever happened anywhere. In the segment, Kenan Thompson played an Al Sharpton struggling to come up with any number of excuses for why Obama performed the way he did, positing that perhaps Romney and Obama switched bodies, or that with no way to know exactly how high above sea level Denver is, Obama struggled with an altitude upwards of a million feet above Earth. Cecily Strong took over as Rachel Maddow, who decided to look on the bright side by focusing smugly on one of Romneys few slips of the tongue and then gloating over an unflattering frame of Romney (Nice face, governor)....

'SNL' mocks Obama's lackluster debate appearance
They're really mocking the media - but the reason for their melt down is the bell that cannot be unrung.
Obama crashed and burned at the debate.
Romney soared and ignited the electorate.
If you go back to the 2008 Democratic debates before the primary season...you see virtually the same Barak Obama. He’s simply good or average....at debates. Against Hillary and Governor Richardson...he does OK. Against McCain, he shows off very well (McCain is lousy at debates). Well, now he’s come to face one of the premier debaters in America today...and he can’t compete at that level. Even Biden will have problems against Ryan.
By the end of the second Obama-Romney debate, I think there will be a safe five percent lead in all the swing states. There won’t be much left to discuss in the final debate. End of the story.
It just warms my heart to see the MSNBC thugs made fun of like the freaks they are.
One of the best SNL skits I’ve seen in ages...although it still wasn’t as good as the real Chris Matthews’ breakdown after the debate. Now that was priceless.
I still think Biden will beat Ryan....he shouldn’t,but he’s been at this for 40 YEARS!!!
Is there a trick to the video? I can’t find it on the page.
The funny part of this skit is that real life topped, in a comedy sense, the skit.
Nothing the SNL writers could have come up with would have topped the reality of MSDNC on Wednesday night in head to head comedic gold.
What I am doing is hitting the NYT, Huff, etc. boards to do the latter two.
Anyone else have ideas on what we can do?
I mean it's all very nice what we are doing here on Freerepublic, but its really preaching to the choir -- we're all in group 1
CLICK on “Maddow” photo at top of story.
What Ryan should do is play with Biden and make him make statements like "the middle-class have been crushed in the past 4 years"...
Since it’s news and “acceptable” to comment on (even SNL made fun of this) SPEAK UP everywhere you can in “amazement” that the president of the country is a phony.
I always heard that people (maybe just a joke but I like it) are sticking notes under windshield wipers of cars that have an Obama bumper sticker, alerting them that someone has vandalized their car with a campaign sticker.
But in the end it will be turnout at the polls.
Yesterday Chavez “won” in Venezuela (6 more years — which will give him 20 years total). It is becoming Cuba II.
We’re being pushed in the same direction. This election must not give Obama 4 more years.
Thank you ma’am!
Just an attack won't get them to do anything except want to go out and vote Obama.

Obama has become a bad joke to the American People.
That started some months ago, and the note is to read: ‘Someone put an Obama sticker on your car. Thought you’d like to know before you’re embarassed.’
Kinda long - - !
But, as time moves along, the wording devolves - sort of like playing ‘telephone.’
no one will even be watching, except maybe Chriss Matthews...
They’re really making fun of the pundits, not Zer0.
BTW, SNL needs to find someone much more masculine to play Rachael. Maybe a ....man.
SNL hasn’t been funny in decades.
Oh yess...and bring up all the Biden gaffs and misstatements....and challenge the MSM to fact check them!....kill 2 birds with one stone
When the REAL Romney shows up and not the cartoon figure the Obama press created, Obama was shocked. He believed his own spin.
Romney presented himself unfiltered to the American public and it was a shock to all who had not seen him unfiltered before.
When Romney didn't mimic the straw man arguments Obama spouts, they say he lied.
The American public was looking for a reason to vote for Romney and he provided it.
that’s what made obama fail!!!!
yeah, that’s the ticket....
I’ve said this all along..
OBAMA will not get over 42-43% of the Popular Vote.. PERIOD. Anyone telling you otherwise is blowing sunshine up your butt.
OBama will also NOT CARRY A SINGLE STATE he did not win by 55% of the popular vote, with the exception of MN, and he will lose at LEAST a few states he won by 55% or more as well.. WI for example
I agree that Biden will get his clock cleaned by Ryan as well. This isn’t something new... the Press tried to prop up Edwards if you remember correctly and destroyed Cheney for years, and what happened when they debated? Cheney treated Edwards (rightly so) like an uninformed grammar school child. This is typical folks.. the debates and the conventions are the ONLY times the Republican candidate gets to be seen unfiltered or edited by the American people directly.... And with Conventions being too early for most of the swing voters, and carried less and less by the networks... its the DEBATES where the Republican can finally be seen. And when this happens, propped up dems are shown to be the vapuous fools they are.
Biden will do the dazzle with BS routine.
It will be a charm offensive since Biden has nothing in terms of facts or brain power of the facts. He did not last as senator by being an Obama.
Biden will fight to win PERCEPTION not the debate points.
Sorry, I’ve seen Biden and I’ve seen Ryan... Yes, Biden will try to charm, but I don’t think old grey haired gaffe machine is going to disarm Ryan.
He doesn’t have the personality or charm to pull it off.
May not be the routing of last week, but Biden winning? Don’t see it happening.
“Obama has become a bad joke to the American People.”
I think that Hussein’s sycophants are finally realizing this. Perhaps they’ll think it would be best to be on the winning side and change their wicked ways. How dumb must they feel to have hitched their wagons to Obama’s star?
In truth, I expect they’ll rally around Hussein even more, due to ideology.
