If Pat Nixon were a dog

Below I've placed a clip from the show of Heather Morgan doing a series of impressions of first ladies as dogs. Why is she doing that? All I can say is that if you have to ask, you'll never know. I think my favorite is Mary Todd Lincoln, who was already a tad nutty to begin with.

I had never heard of Morgan, so I looked her up on IMDb where her last credit is a 2002 movie called Bark! in which she plays a woman who behaves like a dog (she also wrote the screenplay). Apparently, she likes playing dogs. I guess you stick to what you know.

That...was phenomenal and, though it reinforced stereotypes, hit the notes perfectly.

I remember this show and it was pretty funny. One of the things I thought was great was how they blatantly made fun of their sponsors Taco Bell and Mountain Dew. I remember a skit just before they were going to a commercial talking about what Mountain Dew looked like. They ended at something like "Pure mountain spring refreshment" knowing the audience got their message. A good show. They should release a DVD of those shows.
