My One and Only Post About Al Franken

The long delayed certification of Al Franken as the new Senator-elect from Minnesota has sent some right-wing commentators and elected officials into fits of dudgeon.

Let me get this straight. Being a professional comedian means you cannot later be taken seriously as a politician. On the other hand, acting in a B-movie opposite a chimpanzee does not disqualify you from being President.

I'm not a big Franken fan. However, holding him out of office for this time was absurd. Let's hope he proves all the naysayers wrong.
