Saturday Night Live Lampoons East St. Louis, Mayor Alvin Parks
Here's how it goes...
Romney (played by Jason Sueikis): "You know Ann and I have lived and traveled all over the world, but I'll let you in on a little secret. The only place that has ever truly felt like home is right here, in East St. Louis, Illinois."
Parks: "Are you crazy? This is a hell hole."
"Really? You know, I find it to be such a lovely place."
"Trust me. I'm the mayor. This place is a hell hole. We live in a hell hole!"
Daily RFT has messages out to the real Mayor Alvin Parks for reaction or rebuttal. We'll update this post if we hear from him.
