Video: 'SNL' mocks Obama and the Census

By Ed O'Keefe

The real President Obama filled out his 2010 census form a few weeks ago, but "Saturday Night Live" joked about the process over the weekend.

The questions answered above are what some Americans fear are on the form, for example:

Question 5: What bank do you use? What is your ATM pin number?
Question 6: Has any individual residing in this household on April 1, 2010 criticized President Obama's health care reform plan? What are their names?

The U.S. Census Bureau is strongly urging people to return the real 2010 questionnaires by the end of the week.

We are an nonprofit representing the Azerbaijani-American community, and are trying to do research on health care, taxation and social security issues. Basically, through our research, we are overwhelmed with tons of information, and in order to be able to clearly and concisely formulate the choices to our members, we would be very interested in seeing some one-pagers outlining the pro's and con's on these topics. It would be also interesting to see what are other similar nonprofits thinking and doing. Being a grassroots organization, with a diverse membership, we need to be able to "keep it short" and easy to understand for busy people who don't particularly like or enjoy politics. If you have some tips, pointers and such information, could you please email it to me directly , or via our website

Oh, come on -- that skit didn't mock the President or the Census. It mocked the ignoramuses who are willing to believe every lunatic scare story their tea-party Svengalis feed them.

Azeri spam? Are you freaking kidding me?

Thanks WESTOMOON! I'm glad I'm not the only one that had a "HUH?" moment over that!

Making fun of the tin foil hat Bachman/Palin whackos is loads of fun and lots of people are even making money at it - - GOD BLESS AMERICA!!

I used to think there were a lot more fear-driven whackos in America, but since they have come crawling out of their nuclear (nuke-u-ler) bunkers in their backyards to attend these tea parties I feel relieved that there aren't nearly as many of them as I thought there were.

Everyone - - raise your hand if your surprised that the majority of them are from the ol' south.
