Live from New York... It's Mitt Romney?
This has to happen. In what could be one of the most interesting Saturday Night Live episodes in recent memory, it has been reported that Lorne Michaels, the producer of the legendary sketch comedy show, has offered the Romney tent a chance for their candidate to show off his comedic flares in front of a live studio audience.
A Presidential candidate hasn't hosted the show since 1996 - the last was mega-millionaire Steve Forbes, who ran as a Republican and didn't even make it to the general election. This hosting gap in time could be attributed to the publicity risk the cherished position holds: not being funny in the eyes of the nation could sink one's poll numbers.
