    Coleman dodges egg with 'Bush move'

    The Coleman-Franken fiasco in Minnesota is upsetting a lot of people, but throwing an egg? There is no excuse for that kind of behavior. This guy needs to be caught and sent to jail for a while.

    Also, whether or not you like Republicans, you have to admit that they are pretty quick on their feet these days**. Either that, or Coleman carries a George W. Bush good luck charm - Don't leave home without one.

    ** I bet Franken would have gotten nailed.

    Franken was a college wrestler and once wrestled a miscreant in an auditorium audience to the ground. There's a distinct possibility that he'd have kicked the egg thrower's ass.

    Frazzled Franken Manhandles Dean Heckler; Says He was Protecting Free Speech

    Liberal author and soon-to-be radio talk show host Al Franken physically manhandled a heckler during a speech by Democrat presidential candidate Howard Dean on Monday.

    The New York Post reports that Franken, who recently signed a one-year deal with Progressive Media to host a live, three-hour liberal radio show to apparently challenge Rush Limbaugh, broke his glasses in the confrontation, but was not hurt after charging at a male supporter of Democrat presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche when he began yelling at Dean.

    Franken, who said he was "deputized" by the Dean campaign to handle the heckler, said he did what he had to do to subdue the person trying to distract Dean from his message.

    "I got down low and took his legs out," Franken stated, explaining he needed to fix his broken glasses with electrical tape after the fall.

    Franken picked up the unidentified LaRouche supporter and body slammed him to the ground.

    "I was a wrestler so I used a wrestling move," Franken exclaimed.

    30 years and 30 pounds makes quite a difference.

    He did threaten to kick Rich Lowry's ass, and challenged him to a fistfight. Twice.
