SNL Video: Bill Hader As Drunk Rick Perry

With so much rich material around, you’d expect SNL to come through with scathing political sketches this year. But ... no. Last night there was not even a mention of Herman Cain. Isn’t that show supposed to be topical?

But there was one terrific political sketch on Weekend Update: Bill Hader’s parody of Rick Perry’s wild speech, the one that had people wondering what chemical might have induced his high energy. This Perry actually drinks from a flask. It’s the kind of unforgettable imitation that could damage a candidate – if Perry still had much of a  campaign to cling to.

For the night’s pop-culture highlight, take a look at the hilarious, nearly-real E! special, Kim Kardashian's Fairytale Divorce.
