'James Carville' Returns to SNL with Bawdy Bayou Babble (Video)

Lindsay Lohan was the prime attraction of this week's episode of Saturday Night Live across the country. But down here, we were paying a lot more attention during the part of Weekend Update that featured the guy who talks funny. James Carville (as played by Bill Hader) supposedly appeared in order to assess Rush Limbaugh's slut remark, but of course veered off to describe a rare backyard Bayou game called "The Patchelor," his friendship with gators and a reference to Harry Connick Jr. that may forever change his name in our minds. It's admittedly hard to stop watching, but that's probably just because it's hard to figure out if this is horrifying or hillarious. Click through for video.
