Viewers of NBC’s Saturday Night Live are raving on Twitter about tonight’s cold open skit. Hell must be freezing over, because the left-leaning comedy show actually mocked President Obama and the train wreck of Obamacare instead of utilizing one-trick-pony host Tina Fey’s Sarah Palin schtick.
Cultural shift? Eh. We’re not holding our breath, but it’s a start.
Did you just hear the Obama rip on SNL?

Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, who plays meth dealer Jesse Pinkman, popped in for a well-received cameo. BB’s final episode airs tomorrow on AMC.
I guess hell has frozen over. SNL totally trashed Obamacare. Even brought Jesse Pinkman in to mock it. A puzzlement.

Michael Moore echoed similar sentiments, as Twitchy reported last week.
Will there be a 3am phone call from the White House to SNL executives?
