"Two big accomplishments -- jack and squat."

Hmm...the audience didn't quite know what to think about that one.

The fact that they actually ran it says more than the content of the sketch.

You know the tide is turning when the ClunkerMedia actually makes fun of The Won.

Fascinating that even SNL can't resist pointing out what a zero their hero has been, although it's clearly born of the anger and resentment of the jilted lover, lied to yet again.

Not bad. It's a shame the other 88 minutes aren't worth watching.

The guy does a pretty good imitation, but there is one critical flaw in his act. He's got to quit looking directly into the camera. BHO never engages the camera for more than 3 seconds at a time, unless by accident. If you play some video of any of his speeches with the sound off, the metronomic head movements actually make a pretty good timing device for restoring some rhythm to your putting stroke

I thought a significant Turning Point had been reached a couple of weeks ago, when both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama got on camera to say that they don't think "raaaaacism" is behind the big-government protests. They had figured out that the name-calling isn't working, and is actually backfiring on them.

Now this, another significant Turning Point: it's now okay to make fun of Obama by actually pointing out in detail that he's not the greatest president in history (though, as noted already, the audience didn't seem quite ready for it). I'm not saying other comedians are going to follow suit right away. But the ice has finally been broken.

All it took was a fall from Mount Olympus.
