Last night’s cold open featured a spoof of Schoolhouse Rock!‘s “I’m Just a Bill,” in which a bill attempts to explain to a young boy how he’s passed. That is, until Obama pushes him down the steps of Capitol Hill and an executive order shows up, smoking a cigarette.

It’s good to see SNL getting back into political satire again.
