The skit showed Vice President Dick Cheney, played by Darrell Hammond, suggesting Rice should “flash a boob” to distract the public from her testimony.
“Just one headlight, real quick,” he said. “It does two things. You win over the liberals, plus, it’s a distraction for the press. I guarantee that’s going to be the headline, not the bin Laden thing.”
Jackson, as Rice, huffily refuses.
“I am not a prude, sir, but this hearing is not the forum for that kind of lewd conduct,” she said. “There are other forums, like pay television or national sporting championships. That would be fine, but I am the national security adviser.”
Cheney reluctantly agreed. “It was Ashcroft’s idea,” he said.
The scene shifted to the commission hearing. Rice, tongue-tied under questioning, opened her blouse and pretended to reveal her right breast – the same one seen by millions of Super Bowl viewers during her halftime performance.
Some may call this tasteless – – but I thought it was funny. Hey – it’s SNL, what does anyone expect?? Although, Janet Jackson is no Condoleeza Rice – – she had the look and the hair all wrong.
