Apparently Saturday Night Live pulled this economic bailout skit from a few weeks ago, because of "the potential problems it might have caused NBC." Not really sure what those would be (will General Electric not get its promised personal rescue package? Did Lorne Michaels get a letter from Paulson's therapist about the Treasury Secretary being in a "very delicate place right now and jokes at his or his baby's expense, even from a good natured place, would have a profoundly negative effect on the global economy"?), though perhaps producers were just afraid of the inevitable dead silence. The Barney Frank impression is pretty excellent however, so at least watch that.
