Rahm Emanuel's SNL 'apology'
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel has politely atoned for calling progressive lawmakers "f---ing retarded." But on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, comedian Andy Samberg gave a more spirited -- and vulgar -- apology. Acting the part of the notoriously blunt Emanuel, he attacked liberals for going to the press with complaints about the White House, and Sarah Palin for hitting him on his politically incorrect statement about liberals:
"You come after me on Facebook? What, are you -- fourteen? Here's a status update: Grow the [blank] up! Poke me again, and I will write [blank] on your wall so obscene your computer will cry. Go back to the tundra, you [blanking] gimmick!" Samberg said to Palin in the heavily edited-for-obscenity segment.
"In conclusion," Samberg as Emanuel said, "boo [blanking] hoo. Get over it."
