Biden and Murtha get payback

Joe Biden (who spoke with strange assurance about Barack Obama being tested by a generated foreign crisis early in his presidency) and Congressman John Murtha (who called residents of his western Pennsylvania district racists) get some payback on Saturday Night Live.

Biden has a sometimes unfortunate habit of saying aloud whatever happens to be in his mind at the moment. On the other hand, I find John McCain’s assertion that “I am going to test them. They are not going to test me” far more unsettling. (Who is he going to test? And how?)

SNL also offers a preview of Obama’s half-hour advertisement on prime-time TV next Wednesday, featuring some very special guests.

Update: Geez, the Sarah Palin impersonators are everywhere.
