If SNL Did a Spoof on Democrats, Here's How It Might Look

Shhh. Oh, and enjoy it while it lasts.
The presidential campaign has been good for "Saturday Night Live" -- and for Hulu.com. In a few short weeks, the first clip of Tina Fey impersonating Gov. Sarah Palin has become the site's most-viewed of all time. But it appears NBC.com and Hulu.com may have run into some trouble with the latest SNL political send-up.

A clip poking fun at the bailout, and specifically, at former Golden West Financial Group co-chiefs Herb and Marion Sandler, has been taken down from NBC.com and Hulu.com sometime on Monday, leaving many speculating as to why. A good guess: The clip, a fake C-SPAN news report, identifies the Sandlers, who sold their Golden West Financial S&L to Wachovia in 2006 as "People who should be shot" in a graphic. The video is still available on YouTube, at least for now.
