‘Saturday Night Live’ wastes little time in spoofing Rick Perry

This didn’t take long at all.

During the opening of “Saturday Night Live” this week, the show managed to spoof Rick Perry’s politics, his sentiment towards candidates, and … well, we probably shouldn’t make the same joke that just about everyone else already has.

Basically, we witnessed a fantastic spoof at Perry’s inability to remember all of his talking points during the CNBC debate earlier this week — with his frustration mounting until he managed to eventually rip off the sleeves of his shirt in rage. Kenan Thompson’s Herman Cain (who really dodged a bullet thanks to Perry) also had some pretty fantastic moments thrown in there as well.

It’s still to be seen what the long-term impact of this debate is going to have — but it is probably safe to say that this won’t be the last time we end up hearing about this debate.
