Kristen Wiig is Michele Bachmann in the SNL Cold Opening where Rick Perry forgets

The latest Republican debate for the party's seat in the 2012 presidential race is marked by Rick Perry's inability to finish points.

Cold Opening - The Republican Presidential Debate

Fred Armisen ... John Harwood
Paul Brittain ... Ron Paul
Bill Hader ... Rick Perry
Steve Higgins ... announcer (voice)
Taran Killam ... Jon Huntsman
Bobby Moynihan ... Newt Gingrich
Nasim Pedrad ... Maria Bartiromo
Andy Samberg ... Rick Santorum
Jason Sudeikis ... Mitt Romney
Kenan Thompson ... Herman Cain
Kristen Wiig ... Michele Bachmann

Andy is freaking out a little.

Love the Mice & Men reference! Not entirely sure why they didn't really have Mitt shoot Perry.

So this skit barely covers Cain's sexual allegations (women who he supposedly unsuccessfully hit on for affairs have come forward). But then it focuses on Perry's mistake (forgetting the third government department he would close) and then beautifully turned it into a Mice & Men reference.

Interestingly they showed Romney to be the intelligent and clever one in this skit.

This is Kristen's sixth appearance as Michele Bachmann, but she only appears in one shot in this skit!
