Cain, Romney, and Huntsman: This Weekend's Political Comedy

The weekend began with Herman Cain's appearance on Friday's broadcast of the Late Show with David Letterman. Poor Herman Cain doesn't have any friends in Washington DC, but the voters are still interested in hearing more from Cain despite allegations of sexual harassment and his level of expertise on Libya. The full twenty-four minute appearance is embedded below:

Saturday Night Live started this weekend's broadcast with a cold open from Jason Sudeikis (in the form of Mitt Romney). Unfortunately, even SNL's version of fake Mitt Romney is dry and boring. Not even a leather jacket can help:

Lastly, the real Governor Jon Hunstman made an appearance on SNL during Weekend Update. There might be one too many New Hampshire jokes in this clip, but Huntsman's attempt at humor is admirable and certainly funnier than Perry's appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman from earlier this month. This just under 3 minute clip offers some good free exposure for a candidate like Hunstman with single-digit polling numbers. Hey, he's up from the Margin of Error right? In any event, this might be the best clip of the weekend, but you be the judge.
