A whole lotta spotlights are being turned on General Motors because of the automaker's recent recall issues. Following John Stewart's skewering of the Chevrolet Cobalt issue, Saturday Night Live is the latest to wonder - in its parodic way - "WTF?" Last weekend's episode opened with a skit that made jest of GM CEO Mary Barra's answers to Congress, the play-acting CEO in the skit first pledging honesty and transparency, then responding to every question with some version of "I'll take a pass on that" or game show answers.

We wouldn't mind seeing her try out some of the exit strategies at the end of the skit in the real hearings, though. Check them out in the video below.

      If ever there were an appropriate moment for Joe Barton to scream "You LIE!", I suppose this would have been it.

      OK, quick show of hands for all the pro-bailout morons in the room. Gee, where did they all go?

      So... 13 people died due to this non-recall... I'm pretty sure it's not very funny.

      Poppa O'Bama isn't going to like this satire. There will be repercussions!

      funny. but its no joke that she did fail pretty badly. she shouldve defended the fact that gm seems to be doing better, instead she let them use her to bash the company. bet on it. that panel of senators and reps will cost gm, and gm will begin to decline because of it.
