Horatio Sanz: Fine, Ill explicate.
Every time Bush screws up, he gets people off his back by doingsomething even more screwed up. The War in Iraq gets knocked off thefront page by the Karl Rove leak, which gets forgotten because of CindySheehan, then Hurricane Katrina comes along.
Amy Poehler: Oh. OK, and that makes him a genius, how?
Horatio Sanz: Well yes, Amy. I mean, I tried this Bush techniquethis past week, and it was very useful. On Wednesday I showed up twohours late for rehearsal, so to distract people from that, I was alsodrunk. [some applause] Then when somebody asked me if I was drunk, Ipunched Rachel Dratch in the neck. When they were putting her in theambulance, I said, Hey everybody, Im gonna buy lunch! Then I orderedfifty pizzas and left without paying!
Amy Poehler: Youre right, Horatio, President Bush is a genius. And so are you.

Horatio Sanz: Now with a report on New Yorks thriving club sceneis our nightlife correspondent, Finesse Mitchell.[pan to Finesse; applause]
Finesse Mitchell: Hey, thank you. Hey! Now, the New York clubsare the place to be, and be seen. And I, for one, like to go withKenan, because Kenan is really famous. I mean, Im just snap famous. People see Kenan, they go crazy, Kenan!! They see me and theygo, Ohuh [snapping his fingers in thought] Whats your name,again? So it helps to go with Kenan, you know.
But I still do alright once I get in the club. Like, uh, one timeIdont wanna brag, but this girl came up to me, and she was buyin medrinks all night. But you know how sometimes in-the-club, in-the-darkpretty is different from outside, outside-the-club, in-the-light pretty? Well, you know, to make a long story short, we decided to go hometogether, and on the way home I could see a little bit better now,because she was sittin on the passengers side, and every five secondsthe street lights would shine in and hit her in the face. And everytime the light hit her, I could see her better, so I was like, ooh! Oh! Oh my God! [pretending to hold onto a steering wheel while repeatedlyducking down in disgust] I think this is a man! Oh my God!
But, see, I wasnt sure, because you know, she had nice breasts, but shehad real big hands, so you know, I got a little nervous, so you know, Istarted to check her neck for the Adams apple, cause thats what mygranddaddy taught me in fifth grade, If you not sure, you better checktheir neck! So Im tryin to drive, and look all up under her neck,and see her neck, but I couldnt tell, you know. And so then I turnedthe radio down so I could hear a little bit better, you know, cause itwas so loud in the club. And I turned the radio down and I said,Brenda, are you alright? And she was like, [in a fake high-pitchedvoice] Yes, Im fine! I was like, oh, that dont sound right at all!
So my Spidey-sense is tinglin and everything, andbut I dont panic! Idont panic, I just outsmart her. I start winkin at her, I startblowin kisses at her, and I just purposely took my eyes off the roadand I just kept lookin at her. And thats when I let the car driftonto oncoming traffic on the other side of the road. And then thatswhen she said, Hey, hey, hey [his voice very masculine all of asudden] Watch the road, man, you about to kill us! [applause] And I was like, OH! Youre a dude! Youre a man! Get outta my car,you old pretty man. I didnt know what to say to herhimshim, Ididnt know what to say to him.
But Ive been hiding out in my office ever since, and thats pretty muchthe club report. Yeah.
