When politics is big in the news, SNL usually does better, having more to work with that is topical. Last night, the opening bit featured the Tina Fey in a Katie Couric/Sarah Palin interview, which was great. Weekend Update had lots of political stuff, and a prescient bit about Bill Clinton's barely there support for Barack Obama--which was borne out on this morning's Meet the Press. And then there was this skit about the debate between John McCain and Barack Obama, with ex-cast member Chris Parnell pulled out of mothballs to play the moderator. Good stuff.
