A great way to end a bizarre week: Watch "Saturday Night Live's" hilarious takedown of congressional Republican leadership. Dan Ackroyd returned to play John Boehner with Darrell Hammond as Mitch McConnell, and together they lead a debate over who's smarter, Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity, ponder whether to impeach Obama now or in April, and plot a creative line of attack against Sasha and Malia Obama, noting, "The whole country is waiting to see those Obama kids taken down a peg!"
