Some Al Franken memories

Anyone else read Lies and the Lying Liars That Tell Them? I never read a book so fast, couldn't put it down. It came out shortly after the stolen election of 2000.

The story of Supply Side Jesus:


Franken's feud with Bill O'Reilly



On Dick Cheney shooting his friend in the face:



Who else thinks he *might* be a good VP pick to help take on the Trumpster?

2. Franken was great!

A reminder that being a Senator isn't all it's cracked up to be! He was so much more effective and devastating as a comedian, satirist, writer, radio and television celebrity, O'Reilly/Coulter foil!

Oh, those were the days...

4. I love him! He was the first to endorse Hillary!

He works very well with others, really likes our girl can easily handle the job as a bridge to the legislature. Plus, he is genius funny and sarcastic. Great to have around the Oval Office and a skilled at mocking Donald!

5. I'd rather see him as her official humorist, joke writer and stage-presence coach.

 

He would be brilliant in training her on comedic timing, silent double takes, raised eyebrows, and other stand-up techniques.

She's not half bad when she puts her mind to it, as evidenced in her "foreign policy" speech.
