Which Nazi would he have been? You could suggest Herman Goering, who was really the "class clown" of the senior Nazi leadership, but, I really can't see Al as a fighter ace in WWI. His public relations expertise suggests possibly Josef Goebbels, but Franken's too self-willed and independent to be anyone's spokesperson. I would suggest Rudolf Hesse. Loyal, independent, quirky, but, a survivor. Actually Hesse's trip to Britain in 1942 is certainly the only reason he didn't end up being executed after WWII. And, he survived into his nineties. Indeed, if MI6 hadn't had him executed to shut him up -- he wasn't suicidal, after all -- Hesse would have been released after the fall of the Soviet Union.
