As you probably know, Al Franken is running in Minnesota for the U.S. Senate. Earlier in his acting career, Franken played a then sitting U.S. Senator in a Saturday Night Live skit. It was a dead-on impersonation I thought. Who was that Senator?
Update: You know, I should just start any trivia post with "Hey Russ..". Anyway, Mr. Trivia himself got it right. See the comments.
The skit I'm thinking of was a take-off on the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings in the Senate in 1991. It was one of the funniest political sketches that show has ever done. Franken as the late, great Paul Simon of Illinois was hilarious. Who else could do that voice?
