From comedian to candidate. From satire to public policy. It's a difficult leap, but Al Franken is determined to make it.

They're not serious people. Anyone who would vote for Al Franken is not a serious person.

The Bush proteges are about to have their heads handed too them. While it took too long it is a repudiation of Bush and all the damage he has wrought. Thinking people will vote for Obama in DROVES....VOTE>>VOTE>>>VOTE!

I for one, have seen the good that you can do. It's unfortunate that some, particularly those who have previously posted, judge based not on facts but on emotion. kevindr, jollyroger, how dare you!! If you have an issue, then raise it. Don't just sling mud, empty claims, or insults to the rest of us. If you can't raise an issue, then shut your pie holes. Got it!

If you could vote for Norm Coleman over Al Franken, you either never were Democrats, or you just didn't understand what the party stood for. What a couple of intellectually dishonest clowns you two must be. Which part of the article did you two find particularly offensive? An individual of superior intelligence, and human character who takes offense at the mainstreaming of the conservative sham in this country, versus Norm Coleman, a guy who was able to switch parties at age 40+ (how is this possible with the political chasm as wide as it is?) and become the embodiment of this sham as our U.S. Senator (and what a disgrace, his commentary about being a 99% improvement over Wellstone...).
