In honor of Gerald Ford, who "died peacefully" yesterday in Rancho Mirage, we revisit this Dana Carvey SNL sketch—probably one of our favorites of all time—in which Tom Brokaw is required to tape news promos covering just about every other possible conceivable cause of death for the former President. It even includes one scenario that makes room for the possibility of Brokaw simultaneously coming out of the closet. "What?" the producer responds to his protests. "One day. You wake up. You like men. Gerald Ford dies, and we're screwed!" We know the feeling. We really do.
