On SNL, Baucus Barks Like Dog, Thrown Through Window

By Beacon Staff

Well, the sketch was weak and the impersonation was worse, but it says something about Sen. Max Baucus’ increasing level of celebrity that he was featured on the opening of Saturday Night Live this weekend in a bit about health care where President Barack Obama becomes so infuriated by dithering senators that he turns into “The Rock” Obama. Personally, I do not think Baucus, if forced to bark, would sound like that, but that’s obviously sheer conjecture on my part.
