Last night on the season premiere of "Saturday Night Live," the cold opening mocked none other than Republican senate nominee Christine O'Donnell. Her anti-masturbation stance, former fascination with witchcraft, and conspiracy theory about mice with human brains provided more than enough material for 'SNL' to work with.

In a sketch with Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader, O'Donnell, played by Kristen Wiig, sat down to discuss the RNC's role in her Delaware senatorial campaign. In order to prevent any further PR disasters, the men try to pry all the skeletons from O'Donnell's closet. After a few minutes, it becomes obvious there are enough controversial bits of O'Donnell's past to fill an entire episode of "Politically Incorrect" that go way beyond masturbation and a teenage curiosity in witches.
