    did you notice, too, how Fred Armisen seemed to be "phoning it in" on his Obama impression this time?

    Not terribly funny - and the impersonation has lost the Obama affectations.

    The audience laughter was a bit nervous as well.

    Tough to get Whites to laugh and a darker hue...

    Yeah, he wasn't really doing his Obama impression the way he usually does. He was just basically talking.

    This was funny but boy I sure miss the talent that SNL used to have. Dan Aykroyd as Nixon, Chevy Chase as Ford :lol:, Phil Hartman as Reagan and Clinton, Dana Carvey as Bush. Those guys had talent. Tim Meadows sucks.

    He was purposely avoiding sounding like Obama.

    That was no accident...

    Exactly. SnL is scared to death to openly mock Obama - even when the guy is comedy gold to do so.

    This skit was a tepid attempt at best.

    SnL has become comedy for pussies...
