SNL took on the State of the Union last night, cutting together clips of Fred Armisen as Obama with actual shots of displeased Republicans and ecstatic Democrats.
Armisen opened the speech taking shots at Martha Coakley. "Our nominee Martha Coakley was the single most incompetent candidate ever to seek public office in this nation's history," he announced to rousing applause from both the crowd and Joe Biden (Jason Sudeikis), adding, "Martha Coakley, you are a disgrace. You couldn't beat Dick Cheney for mayor of Berkeley."
The speech then moved on to address the problems that were inherited from the Bush administration upon moving into the White House:
"Dishes piled high in the sink, sheets that hadn't been washed in months - perhaps years, floors littered with candy wrappers and dust bunnies, and a fridge filled with food long past its expiration date. "
Mocking the actual response to the speech, the sketch repeatedly cut to Democrats wildly applauding, then juxtaposed them with stone-faced Republicans. But a surprise attendee, Brendan Fraser, was won over, as he reacted with his signature clap.
Armisen closed by addressing health care reform: "To be honest, I could go either way on that. If you want it, pass it. Whatever, I'll sign it. It's your call. I really don't care anymore."
