First Debate Replay by SNL

snl obama

I admit it. I haven’t been a big watcher of Saturday Night Live since Steve Martin and the Cone Heads were popular. Still, over the years I’ve found the elections bring out the best in SNL skits. No matter your political view their exaggeration of  the candidates can be pretty funny.

This week if you watched the real debate between Mitt Romney and Barrack Obama you probably picked up on a few of their idiosyncrasies. I thought the SNL characters did a great job bringing them to light. Take a look at this, remembering for many young voters, this is the closest they will get to watching the real thing.

What do you think?
