Olbermann skewered on SNL

Ben Affleck nailed an over-the-top impression of Keith Olbermann this weekend in a sketch for Saturday Night Live.

Olbermann apparently was so curious to see how Affleck was going to portray him that he crashed the SNL set on Friday to watch the rehearsal.

If you’ve never watched Olbermann’s Countdown show on MSNBC, he’s known for being a bit extreme in his commentaries, calling just about everyone a fascist dictator and demanding their resignation.

My fave part was the Special Comment segment at the end. Check out the sketch below:

But my fave Olbermann impression of all time is still this YouTube video.
