SNL Spoofs Bogus Bush Talk With Troops

If you missed Saturday Night Live over the weekend, they opened the show with a great spoof on the fake "conversation" President Bush recently held with troops serving in Iraq – and even managed to slap Fox News at the same time.

As always, you can see the whole thing at Crooks and Liars.

Rachel Dratch as an inadvertently way-too-honest soldier: "The Iraqi people are so full of freedom, they could burst. Sometimes an Iraqi will be so full of democracy they'll walk into a crowded area and explode."

The scary thing is how over-the-top it was and yet strangely similar to what we actually saw happen.
