Go read Seth Meyers lament on all the great candidate impressions that were lost to history because the writer's strike made SNL go dark the heart of primary season:
And poor Darrell Hammond. He had mastered his Fred Thompson impression. Making matters worse, ever since Thompson dropped out, Darrell keeps seeing him at commercial auditions. It's awkward.
Will Forte spent the strike refining his John Edwards impression only to see him drop out. Forte now claims the show should reimburse him for the $200 haircut he received to ''prepare for the role,'' although, knowing Forte, it was probably a $20 haircut, with the other $180 funding his comprehensive manscaping project.
They really do need to get to work on McCain. It's going to be a long campaign season without a good John McCain impression up.
