Re: My lunch with Al Franken

It's simply beyond my abilities to understand how anybody (even a liberal) could vote for Al Franken. I'm glad you enjoyed your lunch, but man what a slime ball he is.

I thought this was an interesting observation, considering it comes from Franken's book titled ''Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them":

Book critiques ---

In a review of Franken's book in the Washington newspaper The Hill, reviewer Mary Lynn F. Jones, a fan of Franken's previous works, wrote, "Franken's tendency to mix fact with fiction [also] left me wondering sometimes what was true and what wasn't."[4] As an example, she cited a passage in Franken's book in which he wrote that former Bush foreign policy advisor Richard Armitage "bolted" from a Senate hearing and "[knocked] over veteran reporter Helen Thomas, breaking her hip and jaw".[5] The paperback version has a footnote saying, "The Helen Thomas thing is a joke."[6]
The only thing I can think of that could be as boring and useless as a left wing liar criticizing the right wing liars would be... a right wing liar criticizing the left wing liars. I'm just so glad (that is satire) that the people on the extreme right/left are busy patting themselves on the back over how clever they are. [/satire]. In the mean time, the real work gets done when people meet in the middle, try to understand each other and work towards some common good. Others sell books.

Indeed, comedy writers the world over will mourn the passing of the administration that practically writes its own jokes.

Come on...the VP shooting a guy in the face? The president commenting on our desires to put food on our families? My Pet Goat?

We never expected the goldmine of late night tv bits we bought with our votes.
