Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Mumford and Sons may have headlined last night's Saturday Night Live, but newcomer Kate McKinnon might just have stolen the show, reports the Huffington Post. Appearing as Ann Romney on "Weekend Update," the freshman declared that the campaign meant "We're missin' apple-pickin' season, Seth. And we loooove apple-pickin' season. It's like Mormon Mardi Gras!" As for charges of elitism, the Obamas "are friends with Jay-Z and Beyonce. Did I miss something? Everyone's always saying I'm unrelatable because I had a horse in the Olympics. Well, let me tell you what: I would kill that horse if I could meet Beyonce." HuffPo's Mike Ryan runs down other highlights and lowlights here. (More SNL stories.)
