Like Batman and Robin, Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter are a dynamic duo popular with the people. Newt and Calista Gingrich have less widespread appeal. The Republicans campaigned relentlessly for over a year, yet never gained enough followers to bat against Obama in the big leagues.
Still, the big ‘C’ conservative couple have not been completely forgotten, as the venerable Team Coco decided that their own comedy couple bear a Republican resemblance.
O’Brien and Richter recently dressed up as Calista and Newt, respectively. The likenesses are uncanny. Conan has perfected Calista’s smile and Andy has got Newt’s incredulous expression down pat.
The sophomoric, vaudeville humor of Team Coco is usually well received, and this dress-up episode is no different. While many attempt to construct subtly seething satires, this talk show just brings the funny.
