Saturday Night Live returned tonight and from the multitude of topics they had to choose from (and really, the news cycle is an embarrassment of riches where SNL is concerned) they opted for Christine O’Donnell.
In the open O’Donnell, played by Kristen Wiig, is asked about her past transgressions by members of the RNC (Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader) who want to make sure there will be no more media surprises before they agree to fund her (it is perhaps a measure of the nation’s political savvy that SNL assumed viewers would know about her troubles with the RNC). Suffice to say SNL is not afraid to play dirty. After discussing the “media’s fixation” with silly things like “dabbling in witchcraft” O’Donnell reveals to the pair that back when she started her anti-masturbation campaign back in the day she didn’t even know what masturbation was…now that she does she masturbates multiple times a day!
Later she assures them that there are no other skeletons in her closet…unless you count the dogs. Turns out O’Donnell used to run dog fights and they were “much better than Michael Vick’s.” And come to think of it there was also this time in college…But never fear! The people of Delaware only want to hear about restoring the Constitution and “things like that.” Indeed. You can watch the full cold open below.
