Mitt Romney says he'd be willing to appear on SNL, though he has not actually been approached to do so. He tells Diane Sawyer that he's a tentative yes. "Of course it would depend on the nature of the skit," he says. "I want it to be funny." Aw, Mitt, they're gonna make you call it a "sketch." When a politician appears on Saturday Night Live, one of two things happens: Either they appear alongside the person who usually plays them (think Hillary Clinton with Amy Poehler), or they appear as themselves with everyone else in character (Obama's Halloween sketch, McCain appearing with an Tina Fey as Sarah Palin). Romney admits that it being on the show sounds "like a lot of fun," which just whets our appetite: Tell us more about your understanding of fun, Mitt Romney! Tell us more.
