Anyone listening to Franken?
OMG....he's coming unglued...not in a good way either....will someone give him a tab of Xanax? I dont like hearing his shrill yell....i feel so sorry for his cohost who has to try to calm him down.

I wish one of his producers would stage an intervention or something.

if you're referring to the interview with the Time reporter (Dickinson?)

he just couldn't take the bullshit that guy was spouting. he was going out of his way to defend Rove. same as Lampher.

I was listening to them in the car.

4. You call that 'unglued'?
Do you live in a Zen Monastery or something? That ain't nothing!

I don't see how you can call him 'shrill' either, unless you disagree with what he's saying.

7. I agree with what he' saying
And on balance i like his show, but i hate when he gets shrill and starts raising his voice and being rude. Some people do that well (Mike Malloy), Al Franken doesn't. He becomes un listenable.....i think he shouldn't stray from his nice guy persona. Because that's what works for him.

There are times when he almost gets abusive with KL and I feel so bad for her.

5. Are you talking about the bit w/
the resident dittohead? If so, I thought Franken was very restrained. I would have jumped through the mic & smacked luther 'rush showed me the true light'.
