SNL Sends Off GOP Candidates With Green Day Tribute

All good things must come to an end. As GOP candidates were picked off like American Idol contestants this year, SNL was ready to bid them a goodbye.

Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, and Keenan Thompson returned as their roles as GOP hopefuls for one last sing-a-long. The song they sang was a parody of Green Day’s ‘Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life).’

At one point during the song, Bill Hader’s Rick Perry forgets the lyric and has to mumble his way through. Mimicking the time he lost his place during a debate. While Keenan Thompson’s Herman Cain says he had 999 problems, and a b**** was all of them. That was making fun of a mistress of Cain’s who came forward and effectively ended his campaign.

Although Romney is pretty much set to take the GOP nomination, Newt Gingrich is still in the race. Bobby Moynihan reprises his role as the former house speaker, only to show up at the bar stealing peanuts. Making fun of the rumors that Gingrich’s campaign is broke.

Wiig, Samberg, and Sudeikis will leave SNL at the end of the season. SNL always does a pretty good job making fun of political figures, however nothing will ever live up to Will Ferrell’s portrayal as former president George W. Bush.
