Saturday night (live) with Howard Dean| The Note
This is about half way down- some good coverage

Saturday night (live) with Howard Dean:


The Note hereby predicts that Howard Dean will guest host or play a major role on an episode of "Saturday Night Live" well before the Iowa caucuses.

And this prediction is based on no reporting whatsoever, but, rather, The Doctor's great facility with "talent," which he displayed Saturday night (well after most paper's deadlines) in Manhattan, about 30 blocks away from 30 Rock.

We will say it again Page Belting notwithstanding, every week, Howard Dean goes to events that are filled with more energy and the feel of "specialness" than most of the other candidates have enjoyed all campaign.

A sparkly-attired Gloria Gaynor took the stage to belt out a few classics ("Never Can Say Goodbye"), then made way for movie-sitcom-talkshow-gameshow-star Whoopi Goldberg, who declared it "too easy to run down Bush" (yet proceeded to do just that), poked some fun at Republicans in California ("They're trying to elect Arnold, child!"), used some blue-ish language about the administration's policies, anticipated an Osama-related October Surprise, and introduced the Doctor himself, who accepted the mike with his trademark rolled-up sleeves and resolute demeanor.

Dean took care of some business, reminding the crowd of New York's deadline to register to vote as a Democrat in the March primary, then went into his crowd-pleasing stump speech, with plenty of mentions (total of three) of "Ken Lay and the Boys" thrown in for good measure, all of which was met with enthusiastic cheers and ovations. Gloria Gaynor returned to sing "I Will Survive," with the talent piling on stage to serve as ersatz back-up singers and dancers, while a jubilant Governor Dean grabbed Whoopi Goldberg for a jaw-dropping, vigorous, twirly spin around center stage.

4. Gonna be hard to top Gore's appearance.
Gore was hilarious.




In a continuing effort to also display annoying, bandwidth-eating photos of my preferred candidate.

5. That's true. Gore's spoof of Trent Lott was an Emmy winner!
I want to see Dean on Letterman and Leno also.

7. Did you guy's see Stewart's joke about Dean on the Emmy's?
Ok, don't get mad Dean people, but it was funny. Larry King accidently cut to Dean I think before he was ready or something and Dean was practicing or trying to smile, but didn't quite get there. He kind of looked like Jack Nicholson when he played the Joker.

And don't get mad DU people (everybody), but John McCain's impersonation of Jon Ashcroft on SNL's Hardball spoof was hilarious. His whole thing about putting a microchip in every American's head that responds to his remote controller killed me. I guess you would have to have a sense of humor to go through what he, Stockdale, and all those other guys went through.
