Those of you who know me best know that I will do almost anything for a joke. It doesn’t even have to be a good joke, just one that makes me laugh. So, after watching Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin spend all of last week fighting it out over President Obama‘s new NASA plan, the first thing I thought of when I saw Ke$ha‘s backup dancers on Saturday Night Live was “So, that’s what they’re doing for extra cash now.”
Add to that the fact that this performance is made of 9 different varieties of AWESOME, and I was determined to build a Mediaite blog post around that one joke. I will long consider it a personal failing that I could not manage it. Now, the moment is gone, but if ever there are two astronauts battling it out in the public square again, I can simply link to this post. In the meantime, enjoy the best thing I’ve seen on SNL in awhile.
