    Stuart Smalley will fit right in with all of the other clowns polluting the halls of congress. Does anyone really believe this guy Al Frankin will make a good senator?

    Yes, I'm quite sure he will.

    His intelligence, his grasp of issues, his commitment to those issues, his demonstrated commitment to the troops through his contributions to the USO, his lack of affiliation with PACs and corporate backing. Franken has demonstrated his serious interest in politics for years with his radio show and books. Sure there were plenty of jokes along the way, but he is not kidding now, and should be taken seriously.

    The only 2 things in that list that are relevant are his intelligence and grasp of the issues, which are debatable. Not saying you're wrong, just that I disagree.

    Do you actually know anything about him other than his work on SNL? He's been a senator for 8 hours, what is there about his record that you dislike?

    He is a far left ideologue. Naturally, I don't believe he will be a good Senator. Yes, I am familiar with him and have read some of his work. You can be very condescending for someone who bailed out of our last discussion so quickly.

    Tax slip-up mars Franken campaign
    Franken pays $70,000 back taxes, penalties

    Wise-cracking funnyman Al Franken yesterday body-slammed a demonstrator




    A psychopathic tax evader in congress? Good job fit.


    Al Frankenís secret
    If Krugman endorses him I will be against him on principle anyway.

    Krugman is a bought and paid for lackey of the IMF and World Bank.
    Thank you

    My main problem with him is that he is the liberal Anne Coulter.

    Franken was a math wiz who graduated Havard with honors where he majored in Political Science.

    He actually is good enough and smart enough.
