SNL Romney Obama Town Hall Debate Spoof

Saturday Night Live opened with a skit about the town hall presidential debate between President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. Jay Pharoah is getting better as Obama, and Jason Sudeikis is always funny as Romney. In this skit Candy Crowley informs everyone that audience is from Long Island and has been chosen based on the severity of their accents. The debate is feisty and the candidate nearly come to blows. Tom Hanks makes a special appearance as a voter who has a very important question. Take a look:
