Thompson was awesome. They could have had him be the entire skit.

This sketch was funnier than their actual "cold open" debate send-up, in my view.  Sharpton's portrayed as an ignorant buffoon, Maddow as a smug know-it-all and Matthews as a fevered blow-hard.  Imagine that.  Enjoy:

My favorite line was the juvenile "nice face, governor" taunt -- basically conceding that they had nothing on Romney.  Aside from that, it's really too bad Darrell Hammond isn't around to play Matthews anymore.  He captured the idiosycratic yelliness perfectly.  I still say nothing...
