Please welcome Vicente Fox and Al Sharpton.[pan to President Fox and Rev. Sharpton; applause]
Rev. Al Sharpton: Tina, I am outraged. To suggest that blackpeople in this country are only fit for the lowest pay and mostdemeaning work is an insult. Mr. Fox has still not apologized for thisunequivocal insult, and I will not let this issue go away until he does.
President Vicente Fox: I can assure you, Mr. Sharpton, my choiceof words was unfortunate. I was in no way wishing to cause insult toyou, or to the blacks of America. I have the highest regard forblacks, and for what I have said I am very, very sorry.
Rev. Al Sharpton: Apology accepted. [the two men shake hands]
President Vicente Fox: I have never for one minute thought thatthe difference between a black guy and a pizza, is that a pizza can feed a family of four. This offends me!
Rev. Al Sharpton: [stares at the President for a moment] Again, I accept your apology, and I feel that this matter is resolved.
President Vicente Fox: I, too, feel the matter is resolved. I am not a racist.
Rev. Al Sharpton: And I am glad to hear you say that. I mustsay, not being a racist myself, I have never believed a Mexican and acue ball are the same, just because the harder you hit them, the moreEnglish they pick up. [some applause]
President Vicente Fox: Then we are simpático.
Rev. Al Sharpton: I am very glad to hear you say that, and foryour apology, I applaud your courage. And as a sign of my appreciation, I brought you some luggage. [places two paper bags on the desk]
President Vicente Fox: Luggage for me, yes.
Tina Fey: Come on, now, both of you, just stop it, OK? Stop it. Cant we all just get along, please?
Amy Poehler: Yeah Oh, I got one!
A black guy and a Mexican guy are in a car. Whos driving?
Tina Fey: I dont know. [both President Fox and Rev. Sharptonshake their heads, puzzled]
Amy Poehler: A cop! [applause; all four share a hearty laugh]
Tina Fey: Oh, wonderful!
President Vicente Fox: You know, my old friend[puts his hand onRev. Sharptons shoulder] if we cannot laugh at ourselves, then who canwe laugh at?
Rev. Al Sharpton: [brief pause] The Chinese? [the two laugh onceagain]
Tina Fey: President Fox and Al Sharpton, everyone! [cheers andapplause]
