(What an idiot.)

The stand-up comedy routine — tame and sometimes lame stuff; Mr. Moore 
is no George Carlin — gives way to a stretch that sounds like a 
commencement address before Mr. Moore gets to his real purpose, which is 
to support Mrs. Clinton.

He compares her — this will irk her detractors — to Pope Francis, though 
not on religious grounds. The pope, Mr. Moore says, has been 
surprisingly activist since assuming the office; he postulates that 
Francis was biding his time for decades, patiently and unobtrusively 
waiting for his chance, which he seized once he ascended to the papacy. 
Mrs. Clinton, too, he says, has waited for years. He fantasizes that if 
elected she will release the pent-up idealism she’s been clinging to 
since college, resulting in a flurry of landmark legislation reminiscent 
of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s famous first 100 days.
