Newt Gingrich Moon President SNL

The Cold Open for Saturday Night Live was a skit in which Newt Gingrich (Bobby Moynihan) has left the Earth to become president of the Moon Colony. Gingrich finally has a place where he can lead. Gingrich is joined in space by his wife Callista (Kristen Wiig), Admiral Herman Cain (Kenan Thompson) and a surprise stowaway -- Mitt Romney (Jason Sudeikis). It's ridiculous, but it's actually pretty funny. Kristen's Callista is a scream. Gingrich also has a Reagan-like robot. Gingrich tells a student: "And may divorce be with you." Take a look:
