Al Gore on subjunctivision

Subjunctivision: a term from Godel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid. Subjunctivision is a sort of "what if" television: by twiddling the controls, you can watch TV as if things had gone differently.

Al Gore opened for Saturday Night Live this past weekend. I hadn't seen the opening sequence until tonight. It's a very funny bit of comedy subjunctivision where he addresses the country as if he were elected President in 2000. You can catch the Quicktime link here.
