According to Saturday Night Live…

We’ll get Cat 5 levees in the year 2145. [No link yet.] In a skit, future President George Q. Bush in his future State of the Galaxy Address thanked the Army Corps of Engineers for finally completing the project over 100 years from now.

However, as he thanked them, a Cat 12 hurricane was making landfall.

Remarked our future President with a shrug, “What are you gonna do?”

It’s nice to see someone in the national media taking a shot at the levee situation. But, the skit was more scarily true than humorous. For example, the future President is still looking for Osama bin Laden.

Honestly, the only thing SNL is good at anymore is political satire. They should do more of it and stay away from trying to actually make people laugh because people I talk to aren’t laughing. But, yeah, I still watch.

I thought it was great. Funny in such a sad way. Actually, it was the only time I laughed out loud during the whole show.
