“SNL” Spoofs Town Hall Debate

I’m on a video craze here, but there is much to catch up on…

“Saturday Night Live” skewered the second presidential debate as part of its first prime time special geared to the election. It was a pretty good skit, which aims its fire more at the inanity of the town hall format and Tom Brokaw’s obsession with keeping on time. One choice moment: McCain wandering around the stage, as he did on Tuesday, and of course, the “that one” incident. A “William Murray” makes a cameo.
