We’ll have a full rundown of the Tracy Morgan-hosted SNL early Sunday morning (and it’s a very good one, so far), but we couldn’t wait to highlight the perfection that is Larry David playing Bernie Sanders in the cold open, the best cold open in a very long time. Alec Baldwin also comes in to play Jim Webb, but the stand-out performance is Larry David. He could not be better. I’m a Clinton supporter, but if it means Larry David returns to play Bernie Sanders full time, I’d vote for Sanders in a heartbeat.

Check back later for the full recap, which includes cameo appearances from Tina Fey, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer and Baldwin in a 30 Rock sketch.
