Dennis, we've reversed ourselves too...

So Dennis Miller is admittedly now shilling for "the right."  His excuse; he's almost 50 and/or 9/11 changed his mind about Bush. Miller even spotlighted Bush's ability to make fun of himself as justification for admiration. Dennie bubbie, wake up and smell the Seguay! You used to be our role model, but now... you're just another suit trying to look cool in jeans.

Now we don't want to get off on a rant here, but it seems more likely that Dennis has been chosen to be commoditized as the right-wing comedic alternative to Al Franken. The right is disturbed by Franken's success and following, and wants to retaliate in kind.  Fair enough, we expect the right to steal what's best about the left.  But the whole thing just makes us want to watch a debate between Miller and Franken. Two old SNL buds taking on the issues of our day, winner... well the winner just gets bragging rights.

Our bets are on Al, because it's pretty obvious how dependent Dennis is on a picked team of writers for his "off the cuff" bon mots and esoteric metaphors. Let's not forget how badly Dennis bombed when he had to be spontaneous on Monday Night Football.  And that's an organization that kept wits like Frank Gifford and Dan Dierdorf working for years!

Of course, that's just our opinion, we could be wrong.
