Canceled Saturday Night Live sketch

Last Saturday’s show was supposed to open with a sketch that parodied Chuck Hagel’s appearance before the Senate committee on his nomination to be the Secretary of Defense. But it was scrapped at the last minute, reportedly by the show’s executive producer.

But apparently they record the dress rehearsal and so we get to see it. In it, the actors lampooned the way that US politicians use hearings like these to make speeches about their own views rather than ask meaningful questions.

    Hahaha it’s great when they all crack up to Fred Armisen’s impression towards the end, it’s so outrageous! Too bad it got cut…I’d suspect most people just wouldn’t get it unfortunately :[ Probably why he ended up pulling it.
