It seemed SNL was all about politics tonight, from the opening Fox News parody to a second Don't Ask, Don't Tell discussion in a View sketch. But it was Andy Samberg's obscenity-laden impersonation of Rahm Emanuel that stole the show.
Here's something puzzling: possibly the only great moment in an otherwise disappointing episode was relegated to the last few minutes.
In this short sketch, Rahm Emanuel (played by Andy Samberg) apologizes for using the term "fucking retarded," before going on an angry, profanity-filled rant against the democratic lawmakers who sold him out to The Wall Street Journal. He also had some choice words for Sarah Palin, who had called for his resignation over his word choice.
