Jason Sudeikis and WIll Ferrell in Joe Biden George Bush SNL Skit

Will Ferrell hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend. For the cold open, Will pulled out his hilarious George W. Bush impersonation. Barack Obama is trying to calm down vice president Joe Biden (Jason Sudeikis) who is furious that Obama is getting all the press for supporting gay marriage, when Joe mentioned it several weeks before. But Joe is consoled by his friend George, who has been roaming the halls of the White House since he got lost chasing a butterfly in 2009. Bush commiserates with Biden about what a buzz kill President Obama is, and shares some advice with his fellow speak "from the gut" type, Biden. Take a look:
