(Newser) – Big Bird rode Mitt Romney's debate crack all the way to a guest appearance on SNL's "Weekend Update" last night, wryly telling Seth Meyers he'd gotten "a million tweets" about the mention, reports the AP. The segment followed a Cold Open in which Barack Obama gets woozy mid-debate and frets about forgetting his anniversary. "This is bad," he muses, as Jason Sudeikis' Mitt Romney takes credit for killing Osama bin Laden. Host Daniel Craig "didn't exactly kill it," notes Radar, but the blond Bond did turn in a solid performance, particularly as 007 himself in a set featuring some, er, lesser-known Bond girls.
