Trivia and Quotes

  • former radio host, SNL, actor, comedian, Democrat

    I listened to Al on his radio show off and on and enjoyed it (even my being a Republican). Now he is running for Senate in Minnesota. I remember bits of him on Saturday Night Live and he did fine there. (Actually he received more than one Emmy award there.) I thought I saw him more than once in the movies, but on I only recall seen Trading Places where he was on. Hmm, well he does have talent. He obviously isn't my favorite, but he covers a lot of ground. He also has done USO tours which is a big plus. I may have seen him on TV with political satire (I don't recall the show, but not Politically Incorrect). If you are a Democrat, I would say you would love this guy!moreless
