SNL Takes On Republicans In Congress Over Joe Wilson Outburst

Via Alex Leo

The sketch centered around Joe Wilson's outburst during a joint session of Congress in which he yelled "you lie" at the president. According to SNL, the outburst was planned by the Republican leadership, but Joe Wilson was left in the lurch after he went to the bathroom while the rest of the representatives reconsidered their plan.

Kristen Wiig appeared as Michele Bachmann, mocking the congresswoman for her rhetorical choices, and Fred Armisen played a Republican playing Obama, making the whole thing as meta as possible.
