The Algores are pathetic.

I couldn't agree more. Was watching Soprano's rerun and switched over to SNL in time to see Al pretending to be President. DISGUSTING. Now I remember why I never watch NBC. Martin Sheen and co. made me sick.
Albert Gore Junior reminds me of the episode of the Simpsons where Homer briefly becomes famous and then wanders through different events to do a "walk on" and stay in the public consciousness. Algores days are fading fast and he's long past the point of self-parody.
Richard Nixon did not do this and could argue more effectively that the national election was stolen from him.
Deluded rats prefer to pull the wool over their own eyes.

If I had written this episode, I would have done the normal cast skits and had Albert looking in the set windows. Occasionally he might interact, say ringing the doorbell trying to sell his book (with an obvious remaindered sticker on it).
Maybe get Leonard Nimoy to do an In Search Of Algore's Dignity program.
David Spade made many an enemy on the newscast on SNL telling celebrities when their 15 minutes were passed.

I watched the first part. Those 8 years of Clinton were torturously annoying. I don't know how I could have handled 4 years of Gore. He was so annoying on SNL! Anyone see the begining, where he stated something to the effect of "In the 2000 election I was accused of being too stiff. I sighed too much, and was condescending. Now condescending means to talk to people like they're stupid." (laughter from the audience) So, if we don't agree with his politics we're stupid? That's real mature.
Thank you God for giving our country George and Laura!!!!
I was also irritated by that West Wing skit. And did anyone wonder if some people in the Hispanic community might be offended by that one skit where they poked fun at Hispanic television? I have to admit I only caught part of the skit, but I thought if the Dems didn't have a way of getting away with everything some people could find that skit offensive.

This is what passes for "news" at the AP? They must miss their "friends" the Clintons, Gores, etc. to keep them in the spotlight.
We have people who want to KILL us and this is what is "reported"? GAG!

IMO, SNL hasn't been funny in over 20 years.
Gore's appearance just confirms my decision not to tune in.
Al, Tipper and Al Franken. Now there is a trifecta. All losers.
At least Tipper used to have some moral standing, until the clintons turned her.
Al Franken doesn't even qualify for my Andy Kaufman award. Andy had one funny gig as Latka on Taxi. Franken never has risen to amusing.
Algore, well no sense even going there.
Glad I intentionally missed it.

"because I'm good enough, I'm smart enough and, doggone it, people like me."
No, no they don't Al.
SNL Executive Producer Lorne Michaels and cast members attempt to revive Gore after zapping him with a stun gun in the show's opening bit.
"I meant no disrespect to any white people," insisted Gore-as-Lott. "As long as I am in office, we will leave no white person behind."
They still broadcast SNL???

Now that he's not running does this mean he will vanish again like after the election?
We can always hope and pray.
