CSpan Spoof from SNL Explains Bailout Plan

This particular video clip has been the subject of much frantic search and speculation. Bruce Hall located a copy at Sweetness and Light.

The amazing thing about the clip is that Saturday Night Live--a left leaning comedy "improv" show, did the skit at all, since it skewers several prominent US Democratic Party legislators and financial backers including George Soros. In other words, I am less surprised that the clip went missing for so long, than that it was actually found again.

If SNL and other entertainment and news media outlets actually treated all political parties and viewpoints as equally worthy of satire and critique, right wing radio talk shows would be out of business.
