Saturday Night Live took the GOP leadership to task in this parody for everything from hoping that the stimulus bill and the economy would fail for political gain, to their great leaders in Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, to planning on impeachment hearings already, to an attack on the Obama daughters.

When SNL is using phrases like "politically tone deaf" in their skits and mocking you, all I can say is ruuhh-roohh. Maybe your grand plans aren't working out so well with being the party of "NO" Republicans.

I'm still trying to figure out who was playing who in this skit. For a bit of fun I took my best guess and if anyone thinks I'm wrong feel free to correct me.

Okay no guess here. Dan Akroyd as John "Weepy Eyes" Boehner.

No guess here either. Darrell Hammond as Mitch McConnell.

And no guess on this third one. Andy Samberg as Eric "GOP Golden Boy" Cantor.

I wasn't so sure of myself on these. Jason Sudeikis as Tom Coburn?
