Courtney wrote up a good analysis of Saturday Night Live political impersonators yesterday, but one recent addition to the show's stable of faux presidents was entirely left out of her list: Fred Armisen's Barack Obama.
There's probably a reason for that. Armisen is hit-or-miss at best, and just not funny at worst, but I had been working under the impression that, while his Barack Obama isn't funny, he does nail the cadence of Obama's voice. Turns out that wasn't always the case. Here's an example from back during the primaries.
Que horrible! Now, here's the Armisen as Obama that I was more familiar with. The dude really has come a long way.
Let's hope he gets a few more years to practice the persona.
