Plot: It’s no secret that Newt Gingrich’s stock is dropping rapidly. And if he doesn’t get the GOP nomination, what’s an also-ran to do? Fortunately, Gingrich has a not-so-secret plan to colonize the moon. And Saturday Night Live ran with this fantasy. Bobby Moynihan plays a silver-haired Newt who is president of the Moon in 2014. And naturally, like a bad sci-fi flick, the Earth is blown up – but this time, it’s due to Iran and North Korea’s nukes. The solution for repopulating the human race? Open marriages, of course. Gingrich’s gaffes from throughout his campaign make rather timely appearances in this sketch.
