Of all the important events happening in the world recently — bank failures, war in Ukraine, whatever — nothing is more shocking than this: Saturday Night Live actually did something funny this week.

What’s it been, 15 years? Just about the time Obama became president, the writers at SNL lost the ability to do satire. This was not a coincidence, of course, if you’ve followed the decline of late-night comedy with Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon and all the other liberal “comedians” who now think they’re MSNBC pundits or something.
