Kristen Wiig - Prepare for the Michele Bachmann onslaught on SNL!!!

So we might as well state the obvious...

We're going to watch this year to see if Kristen Wiig can turn her Michele Bachmann impression into an SNL classic (like Tina Fey's Sarah Palin).

Three and Four years ago, Amy Poehler brought home her Hilary Clinton impression and Tina Fey brought us her Sarah Palin impression. Both of those impressions lit the ladies careers on fire. Tina won an Emmy from it (and another nomination), and Amy was also nominated from it (and went on to star in her own show).

Therefore, since Kristen has received a few Emmy nominations already (from SNL), she could actually get a win if she portrays Michele Bachmann this season in a hilarious and memorable way.

So far, Kristen's humor with Bachmann has been centered around witch gags, media gags, and the such. She needs to up her game and find a "personality" for her Bachmann impression that is fun and silly.

Wiig's Bachmann impression:

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann gives the Tea Party's State of the Union response another try, visual aids.

Building the person into a likable (yet often crazy) personality, is what makes the best SNL impressions... Fey's Palin, Poehler's Hilary Clinton, Darrell Hammond's Bill Clinton, Dana Carvey's George Bush Sr., Carvey's Ross Perot, and Will Ferrell's George W. Bush. Even Sudeikis' Biden and Norm Macdonald's Bob Dole had moments of greatness. (Armisen's Obama is clearly lacking the character from those other roles.)

So let's see if Kristen Wiig can step up her impression game and make her Bachmann a fun character to watch.
