Barack Obama to Meet David Cook on ‘SNL’

Swoon's Untitled (2008).

Right-wing pundits have long charged that if America were to face a crisis under a Barack Obama administration, the Democratic presidential hopeful's purportedly untested mettle and executive inexperience would become a liability. In a likely effort to prove that he can perform under pressure, the Illinois senator has allegedly signed on to guest on the November 1's Saturday Night Live, the very same episode on which wrong-note-slinging American Idol winner David Cook will appear as the musical guest. If Obama can withstand the pitchiness without running from Rockefeller Center screaming and covering his ears, it is our firm belief that he will win the presidency.
