Today's fun video: What's up with Doc?


Loyal reader and former colleague Dan Hansen pointed out a glitch in a recent Saturday Night Live skit that probably wouldn't cause the New York staff to blink but should have struck folks in the Inland Northwest as bizarre.

The skit makes fun of House investigations into Benghazi, with an back-and-forth between Republican Rep. Darrell Issa and Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings. But the name plate in front of Kenan Thompson, who is playing Cummings, is for someone else. . . someone who almost certainly has never been confused with the Maryland congressman.
