    Not really the idea of a comedian being a senator just doesn't seem right. The only reason i watch whats going on is that he lived in the same building as my wifes aunt in NYC. He moved out just to run for senator. Hes a smart guy from what i've seen. Wait a minute congress is a bunch of jokers so he'll fit right in.

    I really don't know enough about him, other then he was a comedian. My brother-in-law (R) can't believe any would vote for him. The problem with his opinion is that he has Fox News on 24/7. Does anyone really think 'Fair and Balanced' Fox News would have anything good to say about Franken.

    I met him once. About 10 years ago at a Champagne reception in Lowell. He had the thickest hand I have ever shaken. It was like a boxing glove. But, naaa I don't care about him.

    About as much as CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS would have about Dennis Miller if he ran for office.

    The rest of them are jokes. He actually seems pretty honest and straightforward.

    Ah no. CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, PBS, didn't sue Al Franken and lose, unless you have some information I don't know about.

    Not really, he moved out of Minnesota to go to Harvard and then to NYC for Saturday Night Live, where he was a writer back in days when the show didn't suck. He's no carpet bagger and he's been involved in politics, on a smaller scale, for decades.

    Yeah, I care. Franken was a crappy comedian and he'd be a far worse, much more deadly, politician. He's a disease that's needs a cure. ANYBODY is better than Frankenstein.

    He'd fit right in with those "grinning creeps" (Pelosi, Reid, Schumer) he loves the word "f-ck".

    Those who elect him deserve him.

    Ummmm,
    Harry.......
    You use the word more than any other poster. It still counts if you spell it "f-ck".

    It has a certain ring to it, I hear it a lot on HBO, I will try to control myself, I am truly sorry if I have offended any of the little sensitive Dingobats.

    I'm getting sick of her, she's only got one tit and she's 83 years old, I want somebody around 75.
