Bush–Gore 2000 SNL debates

Here’s a blast from the past: I have these classic Bush–Gore debates from Saturday Night Live on my computer, and since NBC, in its infinite wisdom, calculated that it was in its best interest to limit its own presence on the internet and greatly reduce the amount of its own shows that fans can watch, they are no longer available online. So I uploaded them to my web space and you can watch them here. In case they don’t load or play right, I also provide the link to each file:

    You wouldn’t happen to have the SNL sketches where they depict the hypothetical presidencies of Bush and Gore? I’ve been looking all over for those.

  12. John says:

    Hmm, no…y’know, I don’t think I’ve ever even seen that skit. I sure would like to, if NBC would ever get more of its SNL content online.

  16. Mick Williams says:

    Do you have the old 1988 SNL spoofs of the Bush-Dukakis debate? All I can find are short snippets, but I’d love to see the whole thing.

  17. John says:

    No, but I wish I did, if only because I have such a vague memory of it. I think I saw it in reruns once. Is that the one where Jon Lovitz is raised up by some motorized platform because he’s so short behind the podium and Bush keeps saying, “Stay the course. A thousand points of light,” because he has extra speaking time that he can’t fill otherwise?

    Thanks sooo much! I wanted to share the “I’ve got some more Nigerian names for you” clip with Nigerian students in my Language & Politics class and was about to give up the search.

  19. Katharine says:

    Thank you for supplying the 2nd debate. A buddy and I were just talking about the Nigerian names riff in the 2nd debate after the discomfort on foreign affairs in the first debate.
