I haven't read the book but I find Al Franken to be very unfunny. In general I just don't like the guy, even on SNL. What was informative about his book? I'm curious because I picked it up in the book store and read the back cover.

If said president got into Yale on merit alone, I might take him more seriously.  But then again, he'd still have to demonstrate a certain level of intelligence in his speeches and his actions, which he has yet to do.  Al Franken, on the other hand, is intelligent, articulate, and damn funny as well.

KOTT: When you're finished with that book, I suggest picking up an older Al Franken book, called "Rush Limbaugh is a Big, Fat Idiot."

I'd love to hear what lies he's told. His books are well-researched. If you know of any lies he's told, I'd appreciate it if you could point them out to me.

Is that Paul Wolfowitz's latest book that your are referring to? Although I'm not too fond of the guy, I think you should save your bigoted remarks for your next storm trooper meeting.

Doesn't Bush have a Harvard M.B.A.? I don't think they take legacies in that program. Al Franken is a buffoon who couldn't get a job anymore. Ask him what he would do if he were president and then we can all go to town.

Is it fair to beat up Evolving for his posts in other threads or should we restrict ourselves to just the ones at hand? It does seem somewhat less sporting, wouldn't you say old chap. Like shooting fish in a barrel. Ahhhhh, fuck it, let's let him have it.

Radio station WLIB-AM is getting ready to present to the people of New York City and Eastern New Jersey the much-anticipated Al Franken Show.? Liberal talk radio finally arrives.

Franken's show will be slotted against Rush Limbaugh.? Jeanene Garafolo is going to do a late evening show.

This should be interesting.

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to this too. I don't know where you live but I get WLIB loud and clear. Franken I already know is a shameless phony but I can't wait to here what Janeane has to say. She's not exactly Mensa material.

Go ahead and roll up those sleeves on your brown shirts, I?ll be waiting. Don?t worry, I?ll recognize you two lovebirds from your poster...
