'SNL' parodies prepping Herschel Walker for Tuesday's Senate runoff in its cold open

As I promised twice, I'm posting the highlight's of last night's "Saturday Night Live" episode beginning where the show did, with the Herschel Walker Cold Open.

Republican senators Mitch McConnell (James Austin Johnson), John Cornyn (Mikey Day) and Marsha Blackburn (Cecily Strong) help prepare Herschel Walker (Kenan Thompson) for the Georgia Senate runoff.
Locking Walker in a panic room might just be the best action for helping him win Tuesday's runoff election. However, that isn't going to happen, which is good news for Raphael Warnock. As several commenters at YouTube remarked, as silly as Kenan Thompson's version of Walker was, he still made more sense than the actual Walker. That's because Thompson has writers and, I hope, editors. Walker has neither.

Weekend Update: Kanye West Praises Hitler, Biden Averts Rail Strike covered more headlines from last week's news.

Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che tackle the week's biggest news, like the Senate passing the Respect for Marriage Act.
Ugh, now I have to add the Alex Jones label to this post. Damn you, Kanye!

Weekend Update continued with Thriller's 40th Anniversary, Police Bust Super Cartel.

Weekend Update anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che tackle the week's biggest news, like a giving birth to a baby in a McDonalds.
Observing the 40th anniversary of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" alone made today's entry worthy of being the Sunday entertainment feature. So does Keke Palmer Monologue, which I decided was more my style than the next two segments of Weekend Update.

First-time host Keke Palmer talks about the lessons she's learned from being an actor for 20 years and addresses pregnancy rumors.
Palmer is not an Oscar winner or even a nominee, but she is an Emmy winner and a Saturn Awards and People's Choice Awards nominee for "Nope," which might earn her an Oscar nomination yet. Even if that doesn't happen, don't count her out for future roles. I think Palmer has as bright a future ahead of her as behind her.

Speaking of Palmer and the People's Choice Awards, both will be the subject of tomorrow's planned post about awards shows, so stay tuned.
