Is Al Franken For Real?

Is Al Franken for real?  Is his run for the U.S. Senate a joke?  Is he just preparing material for a return to Saturday Night Live (SNL)?  If there are any Minnesotans out there reading this post, I apologize.  You know the answer to the question, but it is still hard for me to believe that Al Franken is a politician.  I always thought he was one of the funniest cast members for the 12 Seasons he was with SNL.

I remember hearing him on Air America Radio when he first began broadcasting several years back and thought he was hilarious and frankly, pun intended, good for the progressive cause.  It didn’t occur to me then that he might run for public office, but I am glad he has.

Both Hillary and Bill Clinton have vistied the land of 10,000 lakes recently to stump for Franken and Obama as the Senate race tightens.  The latest Rasmussen poll shows Franken trailing Republican Norm Coleman 39%-43%.

Hey Minnesotans, get out and vote for Al Franken.  We need more progressive political minds with a good sense of humor.  What a hoot it would be to have a former SNL cast member in the U.S. Senate!  If you need more reason to vote for Al Franken, remember this:  he’s “good enough…smart enough…and doggone it, people like” him!

  1. Hi Ribbie – I learned that Al Franken was for real when I read his book “The Truth (with jokes)”. I highly recommend that! He’s quite attuned to the bad deeds of the departing Republican administration.

  2. I haven’t read it, but will have to check it out. I hope Al’s win is certified soon; the contest has dragged on long enough.
