I Love Al Franken but......
I wish he would quit screaming liar in that ridiculous voice. He can make his point without sounding so childish, IMHO.

3. It might sound a little childish, I agree....
But what sounds even more childish are the clips of Hannity, O'Reilly and Limbaugh.....you know.....the people who are actually doing the lying.

10. It's a line from a movie
I believe it was being said to a prisoner being interrogated. I forget if it was a drama or a satire.

Franken's humor reaches back to lots of older humor. Such as, on the first day he aired, he did an homage to Bob and Ray's character, Wally Baloo. So, hang in there, some of this is for folks who "get it". I get it and I like it. Not every minute of his broadcast is going to be for you.

11. Was it from History of the World pt I?
During the Inquisition scene? Sounds like something from Mel Brooks.

Anyway, I love it!

12. That sounds very familiar
If it is from there, then Brooks was parodying a WW2 film. But I think you've nailed it!
