Old Nov 2nd, 2005, 11:55 PM        Al Franken to possibly run for Senate
I think it was on the Daily Show that Al Franken said he may run for Senate. I couldn't tell if he was joking or not. Anybody know anything about this?

I don't think he's joking. That doesn't mean he will, but I don't think he meant it as a joke that he's concidering it. It would be interesting. I'd like to think that he could do it and not sell his soul. That alone would be worth finding out.

He has a LOT of skeletons and the closet door is open. His extensive use of a wide range of drugs in the seventies is well documented.

I think it would be good for him to run just to show that someone who's intelligent and has a good sense of humor can run as who they truly are. I think people running and not becomeing focus group robots repeating canned messages over and over would be a very good thing. On the other hand if he did become that, it would break my heart.

Don't be stupid, how could I be a bleeding hearet liberal without a heart? It would be like being a knee jerk conservative without a knee.

"It would be like being a knee jerk conservative without a knee."

Even without a knee they still have something left to jerk. Republicans are immortal or something

That's Vince's description of you, except you forgot to mention that you are jewish. We both know you're more of a reactionary populist demogogue than you are a bleeding heart liberal.

I know, but it doesn't have the same ring to it.

Why not be a bleeding heart liberal jew? There's no shame in that game.

I would gladly give to Al Franken if he ran for the Senate. It would be worth every penny to watch him crash and burn like a zepplin.

Say, used to be Vinth, why not sell you website to raise money for Al Franken? It's not like you're using it. I'll give you ten dollars.

Or you could take sponsorship to meet Sspad. I'll give you ten dollars to actually show up.

Or say, you could sell your submarine letter on Ebay, fatty.
