Did anyone else just see the "Saturday Night Live" skit involving Ron Paul? WOW!

OK, so SNL did another what seemed to be typical skit with their parodies of Mitt, Herman and Rick Perry in the "studio", then with Newt and Michelle in the "broom closet", Rick Santorum on remote at a San Fran gay bar...and Ron Paul on CCTV camera (black and white screen) stuck out in the parking garage. This doesn't look good...BUT WAIT...!

So they ridiculed Herman (I mean they did a job on him), poked obvious fun at Mitt, and all but dismissed Rick Perry. Then after that fun they went to Michelle and Newt in the broom closet where Michelle took out Newt in a surprise ambush. Rick Santorum was being pawed over in the gay bar...and then...

They went to Ron Paul's character on the CCTV camera in the parking garage.

Suddenly a van pulls up and a few thugs jump out, pick Ron up and put him in the van (abduction, you're thinking). The debate moderator announces "Looks like bad news for Ron Paul." And you're thinking (as I was) "CRAP! They are dissing Ron now too!" NO, NO, NO! Now comes the SURPRISE ending...!

Flash back to the CCTV camera in the garage where you see/hear two gun shots in the van. The crowd in the SNL audience reacts in disbelief like "I can't believe SNL did this to (i.e. killed off) Ron Paul"...but then the van door SWINGS open and out jumps RON PAUL brushing himself off then his hands like "that's that!" (two thugs obviously took the bullets instead of our hero!) The SNL audience breaks out in applause and cheers at this surprise ending!

The female debate moderator back in the studio says, "Ron Paul, not going anywhere. Ideologically pure and tough as nails! Well, that concludes tonight's debate...yada, yada" skit ends.

This one did:

Why wasn't there any cheering after "Ron Paul: ideologically pure and tough as nails?" There HAD to have been some Ron Paul fans there, and we can make a huge racket.

Haha! Ron Paul baby!

Haha! Ron Paul baby!

War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

What Would RP Do if Kidnapped

Smoke those b1tches!

Hahahaha!!!

HAHAHAHA!
BUHAHAHA!

So Good!

Well you can take this so many ways on the way they showed RP.
Saying he's not going anywhere could be interpret as not going up in polls, winning , etc.

But I find it to be the meaning that media doesn't want to give him any attention,(which we all know is the case), that no matter what they try to do , you can't stop RP.

But in any case its great!! Any press is good press.For the fact he was the only one not portrayed as an idiot as to the rest of the runners. Shines down well on RP.

Kinda seems like a way SNL got to show support for RP without the network getting involved and scrapping it.

Overall AWESOME!!!!!

Ya, but..I do not think they

Ya, but..I do not think they meant it that way at all. Because ███ was right back in that parking lot, dusting himself off and getting ready for the debate. Tough as nails, they called him..

I think its great they said

I think its great they said "idealiologically pure and tough as nails" Ron Paul is not going to be forced out of the race by the MAN - is what they are saying too.

Epic.

Who isn't for Liberty?

9/11 Truth.

I think this is the tipping point.

Maybe the Occupy Wall Street movement has opened up a lot of new eyes to Ron Paul - eyes which used to look past him. I think they finally get it - RON PAUL IS COOL. To paraphrase Aimee Allen, "Ron Paul is the punk rock candidate". And the powers that be are doing everything in their power to silence him and hide him.

It's a great day!!!

SNL

Awesome! You can't buy coverage like that!! If you haven't seen this yet, please go to FB and "like" the page to get Ron Paul to HOST SNL!! Can you imagine what kind of press coverage this could get? I'm already picturing a skit dealing with the whole "fake eyebrow" bit.

snl - assassination

interesting skit, i interpreted the shooting in the van as someone trying to kidnap rp and assassinate him for the truth he speaks, but rp wins and ends up killing his opponent.

bd

Herman Cain....

and the rest of the jokers know that Ron is the 1-1-1. RP2012

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

One point not covered by all

One point not covered by all the good comments below is this skit is a small buttress against Ron being called a peacenik, American apologist and masochist. Ron gets dragged into a van by multiple bad guys, kills them all, gets out and dusts himself off.

10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.

2nd Amendment

Just exercising his 2nd Amendment right...

That's how I read it, too: Amendment II

They try to grab the prototypical freedom-loving second-amendment-supporting enemy-of-tyrants. Once off camera he pulls out his pistol, blows 'em away, and goes back about his business as if nothing more had happened than somebody sneezing.

As another has already pointed out, it looks like they're comparing him to the Chuck Norris jokes. Cross your fingers: They might decide to go with Chuck as their take on Ron's personality and do a similar series of "Establishment tries to bash Ron, Ron slaps them down in an offhand (but supermanly / stereotypically white-hat) manner and goes on as if nothing had happened" skits. B-)

ROTFL.

= = = =
"Obama’s Economists: ‘Stimulus’ Has Cost $278,000 per Job."

That means: For each job "created or saved" about five were destroyed.

Ron Paul: Truly, "tough as nails", nailed it exactly

Paul is not going away, nor will he be blacked out, because we stand with him for Liberty. We've got your back, brother Ron, and pray that God covers you and yours on all other sides as well!

OR...

It may not have even been Ron 's gun. Maybe he disarmed them and liberated himself using their weapons.

Edit: Not that there would be anything wrong with him packing heat, but it sort of makes him even cooler if he turned their own guns against them.

Exactly

There is no bigger eff-you than to shoot someone with there own gun.

Teflon Ron!

Teflon Ron!

OMFG!

Besides Chris Farley doing that Matt Foley motivational speaker skit, this is the greatest SNL skit I have ever seen!
It's amazing how the "fake news" shows with no ideological or financial agenda have come to supply information more closer to truth than our "news".

NO MORE LIES. Ron Paul 2012.

Matt Foley was an instant

Matt Foley was an instant classic, hilarious.
