Queen Latifah Does Gwen Ifullofit on SNL

Long. Funny in parts. But the oomph seems to have been taken from these skits just a bit.

I thought Queen Latifah (of whom I am a big fan for many reasons) played Gwen Ifill beautifully, much though Keenan Thompson would've been hilarious in the role. What she did in the beginning should've been done by the real journalist as a matter-of-course.

Here's the video. Enjoy!

EDIT: Video removed due to slow-loading blog time. Will try to find a Youtube copy, when it becomes available.

(Stay tuned for a later SNL skit on the Bailout Bill, which was incredibly good. Hint: George Soros)

ADDED: Oh dear. Did Saturday Night Live ripoff The Damn Show's Waco's earlier VP debate skit? They posted it on October 3, and see if you notice the identical idea for the "talent portion of the debate".

Stealing ideas from freely viewed videos on Youtube is, no doubt, difficult to prove. But to me, at least, it seems evident someone might've cast a gander online to see what was out there already. Then again, I'm no expert.
