It’s the time of the season for lampooning the presidential debates. “Saturday Night Live” has been in the business of mocking the great American tradition since 1976, and some of the show’s debate spoofs have made for some of SNL’s best sketches and greatest characters.
Here are a handful of SNL’s greatest debate sketches through the years.
1976: Gerald Ford vs. Jimmy Carter
2004: George W. Bush v. John Kerry
