Today, SNL or the Onion, Tomorrow . . . ?

From the opening sketch of last weekend’s Saturday Night Live:

My administration intends to do to every industry in this country, exactly what we are doing to the automakers. Every company will be vetted for fiscal soundness. Those judged best able to compete in the global economy will be offered a governmental subsidy. The others will be asked to cease operations at once. Hopefully, they will do so voluntarily, if not, they will be shut down by force.

Thanks to Gary Peters for the pointer.
