This weekend the diminutive comedian Kevin Hart hosted Saturday Night Live, and what the show lacked in polish (everyone seemed a little loopy) it certainly made up for in weird energy. Every sketch felt like the 12:50 AM sketch, if you know what I mean. One such example was a parody of CNN’s “The Situation Room,” in which Jason Sudeikis’s Wolf Blitzer awaited the announcement of the new pope.

And then there was Aidy Bryant.

No one really seemed to know how to take on Ann Romney in a humorous way this fall — even her parody Twitter account has been dead since September 6th — but that changed this weekend when new cast member Kate McKinnon debuted her Ann Romney impression on SNL’s “Weekend Update.”
