I simply cannot believe that I live in a country where Al "Stuart Smalley" Franken was nearly elected to the US Senate. This is beyond my comprehension.
When you look at Franken's resume, you'll find "comedian" and "comedy writer for SNL." How does creating characters for SNL and then playing Stuart Smalley prepare you for the US Senate???
Wait . . . I just answered my own question! My attitude toward the US Senate was pretty bad to start with--a bunch of pompous do-nothings. Franken would certainly be a great addition to the collection of pompous do-nothings!
California elected the Terminator. That was bad enough. But you folks in Minnesota have now given us Jesse Ventura and Al Franken. Stop that!!!!
