Saturday Night Live went political last weekend with a faux Republican debate, seating the candidates - as was the case in the last real debate - in order of poll numbers.

Only bottom-feeder Rick Santorum was banished to a local gay bar instead of the debate table where contenders Herman Cain, Mitt Romney et al., were seated.

Needless to say, that did not go over well with the homophobe.

The cuts to SNL's faux Santorum (played by Andy Samberg) were funny due to his expressions, but more so due to their infrequency. Dude is just irrelevant now.

Andy Samberg as Rick Santorum

The decision to stick Rick in a gay bar of all places no doubt stems from his views on the LGBT community and the fact that he recently got so pissed at Google.

Santorum, in response, feels like he's being singled out for having strong views on "traditional marriage" a.k.a. despising homosexuals and all they stand for.

Really, though, what make the skit was Rick's declining importance. The lack of attention they paid Samberg reflected his 1-3 percent poll average brilliantly.

Santorum's comeback is posted below you care what he has to say, which you likely don't. That's the point. Time to back up the bus and head home, man.

Harry Belafonte apparently needs to get to bed earlier. Or maybe he was just in some deep, transcendental meditative state. Either way, dude could not wake up for an interview with KBAK in Bakersfield, Calif., while ON THE AIR.

Watch the anchors cut to the 84-year-old singer, only to find him out cold:

The best part came as the news team, referencing his classic hit, "Day-O", began cracking jokes such as "Guess daylight hasn't come, man." Awesome.

Later, Harry Belafonte's rep, Ken Sunshine (yup, that's his name, you can't make this up), insisted he was in fact meditating through the satellite sit-down.

"After weeks of literally hundreds of interviews promoting his HBO documentary, memoir and CD, Mr. Belafonte had an early morning satellite TV tour."

"True to form, there was a technical glitch. His earpiece wasn’t working, so he decided to take the time to meditate before the rest of his Day-O.”

Well played. "Maybe the world would be a better place if more people took a moment to meditate,” adds Mr. Sunshine. And to that, we ask: Was Harry ...

As the Occupy Wall Street "movement" rages on, the protesters Herman Cain hates are realizing that their mission is being heavily advertised ... why not make like the GOP Presidential hopeful and create a memorable tagline for it?

All the marches and sit-ins to protest socioeconomic inequality are being videotaped and photographed so much that it's become social media phenomenon as much as a political one. Depressing as the subject matter is, these are pretty good.

Here are our Top 10 favorite Occupy Wall Street signs, as seen on Twitter:

  • Sign 1
  • Sign 2
  • Sign 3

Not about to lose her swag just cuz she's 89, Betty White shows off her hardcore rap skillz alongside techno dance artist Luciana in her new music video "I'm Still Hot."

Seriously. You have to see this.

Break dancing, boa constrictors, man panties - this video has it all, with a portion of the track's proceeds benefiting the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association to boot.

"I'm Still Hot" was produced by The Lifeline Program, a life insurance company looking to "redefine the golden years and retirement for seniors and baby boomers."

Pretty great marketing angle:

THG has no problem with cats in general, but three things came to mind after watching this video of a Russian man and his many, many companions:

  1. How do you even walk around/sleep/stay sane with that many?
  2. Just give them food already and stop torturing them, yeesh.
  3. People are weird. Nice bulge, but put on some pants, man.

The sheer number of eyes glaring at the camera makes one think a horror film could begin at any moment. Check out the video and vote in our survey below ...

All these cats are ...

Even uber-serious, oft-maligned, down-in-the-dumps Tiger Woods had to laugh off an incident in which he was attacked by a flying hot dog while putting Sunday.

Yes, this actually happened. And it was not Joslyn James.

A male fan ran toward the 7th green where Woods was lining up a putt, screamed out "Tiger!" and - relish the thought - threw a hot dog at the golfer.

It missed. By a lot. He was pummeled by security.

Tiger Woods, Hot Dog

Insert inappropriate joke about Tiger Woods and meat-slinging here.

Reports say the perpetrator dropped to the ground in waiting-to-be-arrested mode upon letting the frank loose. Woods, who was never in danger, could only laugh later.

"Some guy just came running on the green, and he had a hot dog, and evidently, I don't know how he tried to throw it, I was kind of focusing on my putt," said Woods.

"Next thing I know, he was just laying on the ground, and looked like he wanted to be arrested because he ... put his hands behind his back and turned his head."

He probably should have thrown a hamburger, given that the San Martin, Calif., PGA Tour event where this took place was ... wait for it ... the Frys.com Open.

Sophia Grace Brownlee, a little girl far too young to be singing Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass," has done so online. And, inappropriateness aside, she nails the thing.

Right down to Minaj's accent, the youngster shows off serious talent and looks pretty darn adorable in a princess outfit, backed up with her even littler sister.

While belting out lyrics like "Somebody please tell them who the eff I is." Nice.

It's hilarious, disturbing and musically impressive, all at the same time. Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez, you best step off. This "Super Bass" cover tops all:

This little girl singing Nicki Minaj ...

Chalk it up to East Coast bias? Not enough coffee? Sleeping through 9th grade geography?

Whatever the reason, the press corps traveling with President Obama on a campaign swing out west this week were given a map identifying Wyoming as Colorado.

The two rectangular states do look similar, but come on. Colorado is not only crucial to Obama's re-election, it's where he gave his '08 convention speech. Weak!

Colorado vs. Wyoming

Obama's three-day swing took him to Washington, California and Colorado, where he held public events and private fundraisers for his 2012 re-election bid.

Tuesday in Denver, an audience saw a speech on Obama's jobs program.

The larger point of the trip was to help Obama reconnect with voters and gain media coverage in Colorado, which is expected to be a swing state in 2012.

As for Wyoming, Obama lost by 32 PERCENT to John McCain in '08. Maybe subconsciously he blocked that out and forgot the state exists, resulting in this error.

Just a small-town G, starting words like goose and glee...

On an episode of Sesame Street late last week, the iconic children's program set its spoof-eriffic sights on Glee, perfectly parodying the Fox sensation while also educating viewers on the two sounds made by the letter G.

The skit even captures the essence of characters such as Rachel Berry and Sue Sylvester, without truly insulting Lea Michele or Jane Lynch, respectively. Watch and laugh now:
