*”Saturday Night Live” opened this weekend with a skit on President Obama’s State of the Union, editing clips of Fred Armisen as Obama with real footage of sour-faced Republicans and jubilant 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.”
