Saturday Night Live tackled President Obama’s “full Ginsburg,” or when a politician or talking head appears on five Sunday morning talk shows, in last night’s Weekend Update Thursday. Fox News was left out of the mix, despite the network’s dedication to fairness and balance, but Jason Sudeikis’ impression of Time Magazine cover boy Glenn Beck captured why the prez may have avoided that particular network. No tears from Sudeikis, but he nailed Beck’s manic energy.

Did you find the humor in Sudeikis’ impersonation as funny as I did, or would you prefer the comedy show made a greater effort to be “fair and balanced” in their skits? (To be fair, they did lampoon Keith Olbermann last season with equal relish.)
