After demanding that she drink a glass of wine, he riffed: "By the way, I put poison in your no ..."

7. what would have happened to Al Franken if he'd done a skit like that on his old radio show,

can you imagine the outcry? I'll bet he'd have at the very least had a visit from the SS

remember that?
