This weekend’s SNL tackles–literally and figuratively–the legendary
cool and collected tone that defines President Obama. In a Hulk-like
transformation, President Obama turns into “The Rock Obama” at the words
of Senator McConnell, who declares that the Republican party will vote
against healthcare reform not from opposition to the plan, but from
opposition to Obama. “We want to see you fail,” he says, causing Obama’s
lanky figure to grow exponentially. It’s an amusing scenario, and it
gets better by the end, when Joe Biden meets with the monosyllabic and
muscular version of Obama.
