    Franken saying he'll run for Senate

    http://www.startribune.com/587/story/972540.html
    Comedian and radio talk show host Al Franken has begun calling Democratic members of Congress and prominent DFLers to tell them he will definitely challenge Republican Sen. Norm Coleman in 2008 in Minnesota.
    Gezzzzzz, don't we have enough comedians in Washington already?

    :
    Ironically enough, I have brushes with greatness with both of them.

    My Norm Coleman brush has been documented elsewhere on this site.

    I met Franken in 1997 when he was the opening night speaker at the User Conference for the company I was working for at the time.
    I walked into the can to take a wiz and there he was, washing his hands.
    We exchanged nods and that was that.

    I know.
    Not a very exciting story.
    Deal.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Would you do Hilary Clinton if she helped in your bid for becoming president?

    I've got seventeen posts as the over under on this thread about that no good commie liberal.

    (no good commie liberal was not any reference to Mr. Frankenberry himself, just a reference to all no good commie liberals in order to win my bet with myself)

    I'll just take a wild guess and say that it's probably because politics is a forbidden topic on this site.

    Re: Franken saying he'll run for Senate

    haha.. i've read those rules a few times.

    i'll be conservative and not say all my political views, which i think are right. i tend to not want to tax the readers of their valuable time when reading. i want no reader- some may be children- left behind when reading the threads. i do not want to obama-nate this forum by putting political garbage on it
    i m better than you, so just give up...

    All Democrats are brain dead.
    All Republican have their head up their ass.
    All Independents are mentally unbalanced.

    lakehubertviking, I'm going for the under.
