Here he is in a transmission from “parallel Earth,” making lockbox jokes five and a half years after they went stale. Which tells me Franken probably wrote the sketch. Greeted by wild applause, too, of course; George Bush isn’t my president!
This won’t get as much attention as Colbert’s WHCD gig because Bush didn’t have to sit through it, but it should be good for a small circle jerk nonetheless. They play into the same fantasy, after all: if Colby’s the leader of the Resistance, Gore’s the head of the government-in-exile.
Thanks to Ian Schwartz, our affiliate, for the heads up. He’s posted the entire sketch on his site, Expose the Left.
