On Saturday Night Live this week Maya Rudolph joined the cast to guest star as Michelle Obama. She and Fred Armisen’s Barack Obama said they wanted to “shake things up” as a way of managing Obama’s lead in polls in the weeks before election day. As such, their skit parodied major personalities in the Democratic Party and the performance, much like the Obama/Biden lead in the polls, was, as they put it, “solid as Bar-rock.”
