SNL: FOX News Gives “Embracing Civility” A Try, Is Defeated By James Carville:

On Saturday Night Live’s version of FOX News, the network decided to turn over a new leaf and give civil, polite political discourse a try. Kristen Wiig’s Greta van Susteren spearheaded the initiative, joined by Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin and an already-struggling-to-be-civil Glenn Beck.

Things went quite well initially, but Malkin, Hannity and Beck were unable to go on after hearing James Carville brag about his meal at a vegan restaurant, and watching Rachel Maddow hijack Beck’s blackboard.

This would have been a whole lot funnier if they'd decided to push the envelope a little with making fun of the wingnuts at Fox. Lord knows there is a ton of material there that is ripe for some mockery. They could take a few cues from Stewart and Colbert in that department.
