Senator Franken

Alright, I'm willing to get past the whole Republican/Democrat, hope/change, raise taxes/cut taxes, debate. Obama won fair and square. He's going to be our President in a few short weeks...I get it. Free elections are what make our country so great. I have to say, though:

WHAT IS MINNESOTA THINKING???!!!! I mean, come on, Al Franken for Senator? I know he's at least 30 and is an American citizen--he meets the criteria. But really, Al Franken? He's about as far left as they come. Can anyone tell me this isn't a vote for a democrat as much as it's a vote AGAINST Bush? Very short sighted, Minnesota.

Maybe all those daily affirmations made the difference.

Because he's good enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like him.

Sorry. Had to go there.

I think it'll make the Senate funnier, CSPAN more appealing. Same state that voted Jesse The Body Ventura for governor. People do what people do.

That's just what I'm looking for in the United States Senate...funny. Of course, they're often funny without trying to be funny. Jesse "The Body" Ventura. Yeah, you've got a point there.

You need to put that image on a t-shirt and wear it around the base, just to see what people say.
