Two weeks ago most Americans had never heard of Christine O'Donnell.
Now, she's the brunt of a vulgar joke on the opening sketch of "Saturday Night Live's" first show of the new season.
In it, the GOP nominee for Senate from the state of Delaware - played by Kristen Wiig - met with members of the Republican National Committee to decide a campaign strategy.
As they went over some of the skeletons in her closet, she informed them that she's reversed her position on masturbation.
"I will have you know that I masturbate constantly," said Wiig. "I masturbated this morning when I woke up, again in the shower, then while eating breakfast, and in the taxi on the way over here."
Wiig continued, "In a few minutes, I'm going to want to masturbate again" (video follows with commentary):
As the scene progressed, Wiig actually left in the middle of the meeting to masturbate. Upon her return, she said, "Wow. That was good. I am hungry, do you guys have anything to eat around here?"
As you might imagine, the Tea Party-hating media are bound to have a field day with this sketch.
Case in point, the Associated Press was all over it publishing a piece before the show ended titled "O'Donnell Is First Political Target of SNL Season":
The sketch involved actors portraying the tea party darling O'Donnell and two Republican officials concerned about her past statements, including speaking out against masturbation.
The actress playing O'Donnell says she is no longer against masturbation and, in fact, masturbates constantly. She also says she once ran a dog fighting operation and burned down somebody's house.
Two years ago, SNL and actress Tina Fey were key to destroying the image of Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
Now it seems they're willing to do their part to help the Democrats keep control of the Senate.
Color me very unsurprised.
