Politics were the talk of the weekend on "Saturday Night Live," hosted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("Miracle at St. Anna"). The show opened with a sketch featuring Chinese President Hu Jintao calling out Barack Obama on the vast sums the U.S. government owes his country. Later, political moments included the trailer for the recent disaster flick "2012," mashed up with fake news clips announcing Sarah Palin's election to the presidency, and a guest appearance by Al Gore during the "Weekend Update" segment.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
