CALL YOUR GIRLFRIEND:  I think Lorne's making a real mistake in weakening an already sub-par male half of the SNL cast by axing versatile Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah with one year left on their contracts. How do you not have an Obama while Obama is still in office? (What: Pete Davidson?)  And how do you replace all the impressions Killam does so adeptly, as well as the dancing ability?  The world does not need a Christoph Waltz impersonator, but damn his is good.

We're going to end up with Kenan Thompson as Tim Kaine, aren't we.

MY TRAVELING COMPANION IS NINE YEARS OLD: "Here are the best playlists for your summer road trip. They’re called albums."

So why not just hit play and let Fleetwood Mac—or Grimes, or Modest Mouse, or Beethoven—do the curating?
