The Best <i>Saturday Night Live</i> Sketches to Get You Through Election Day 2012

Now that Election Day is finally upon us, we are at a turning point in history. Who will SNL get to mock for the next four years? Will Jason Sudeikis be forced to stay because of Mitt Romney or because of Joe Biden? (Or, perish the thought, in the event of an Electoral College tie, both?) Will Jay Pharaoh continue to have something to do beside occasional Denzel Washington impressions? These are the vital questions that will be answered tonight. In honor of the occasion, here are some of the best political sketches from the post-Palin seasons. Of course, SNL couldn't help but to include their favorite Alaskan at least once -- though a little untraditionally. Recent standouts have also included Pharaoh's superior Obama, especially in a particularly tense debate. Sudeikis also deserves credit for pulling double duty on both sides of the party line, and helping to bring back an old favorite. Still, the best sketch overall came from a Weekend Update Thursday, and didn't even feature the candidates. Watch and laugh at the mockery of people who could run the country, and try not to get too emotional over the sight of the dearly departed Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig.
