BAGnewsNotes: Saturday Versus Monday Night Live
An excellent photo blog (the best name I can come up with). Check out the link to see the comparison of Gore and Bush in Oval Office addresses. One is on Saturday Night Live and one is a joke. One part of the post that I thought distilled the difference between the two:
