NBC's "Saturday Night Live" offered viewers a parody movie trailer of the disaster film "2012" Saturday evening.
The premise: former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and Fox News host Glenn Beck have been elected President and Vice President, and the world is coming to an end as a result.
In an apparent attempt at fairness and balance -- or maybe the real point! -- the "credits" jokingly showed the film was created by the DNC (Democratic National Committee) and authored by MSNBC's Keith Olbermann - "A Political Disaster of Epic Proportions."
"On Election Day 2012, Planet Earth is Going Rogue" (video embedded below the fold, h/t our old friend Ms Underestimated):
Well, if they're gonna rip President Obama with their opening sketch, I guess we've got to tolerate some Palin and Beck bashing.
On the other hand, you could make the case that this is really excoriating the DNC not only for its extreme views of Palin and Beck, but also the implication they come directly from Olbermann.
Exit question: was this more of a dig at Palin and Beck or at the DNC and Olbermann?
