If you haven’t yet seen it, Glenn Beck received a tribute greater than the cover of TIME magazine last night: a Saturday Night Live (in this case Weekend Update Thursday) parody. I have to think there is far more you could do with a Beck opening monologue than this snippet. (Think Ben Affleck’s Keith Olbermann.) Still, Jason Sudeikis crams a lot into a little bit: the gestures, the Muppet voice, the chin and the misspelling (cf. “OLIGARHY”).

The challenge, I suppose, is making the parody funnier and more absurd than the reality.
