Michelle Malkin: Saturday Night Live thinks the idea of her being civil is hilarious (VIDEO)

Colorado's own Michelle Malkin made an appearance, sort of, in the opening sketch of Saturday Night Live's latest ep. The gag involved an alleged attempt by Fox News to embrace civility à la David Sirota in the wake of the horrific Jared Loughner shootings -- but that proves easier said than done after an appearance by Bill Hader as ultra-liberal James Carville.

Nasim Pedrad doesn't manage an amazing Malkin impression, or really much of one at all. But she does have a nice moment when her head seems in danger of exploding, Scanners-style. See the video below.
