Saturday Night Live' Kicks Off With 'Either the 7th or 8th GOP Debate

In case you missed the season opener of "Saturday Night Live," here's a quick recap: The cast took on "either the 7th or 8th GOP Debate" with a sketch featuring Mitt Romney, Rick Perry and "six other people who'll never be president by showed up anyway."

Bill Hader, as Fox News' Shepard Smith, asked host Alec Baldwin's Perry whether he could "speak for 10 seconds without alienating his base." Perry rattled off a few talking points before slipping and saying all 10-year-old girls should be vaccinated for HPV "so they can enter into meaningful sexual relationships."

Jason Sudeikis, as Mitt Romney, said he's "the perfect candidate in comparison to the other candidates," including having a normal-sized head compared to Newt Gingrich and being "the Fonz" compared to Ron Paul. Though compared to Jon Huntsman, he said, it gets "tricky": "We're both Mormon and have similar haircuts." Cue Taran Killan devolving into an outrageous Huntsman impression, inspired by the former ambassador's two years in China.

Rounding out the rest of the skit were Keenan Thompsan as Herman Cain ("pizza will come" to the entire country), Andy Samberg as Rick Santorum and Kristen Wiig as Michele Bachmann with her closing line of "Fences...Jesus...papilloma...eyeballs."
