Did you see this?
Minnesota Republican Party Chairman Ron Carey issued this statement about Al Franken:
“Given his blind partisanship and extreme anger, Al Franken is the last person Minnesotans need in the United States Senate. While Senator Norm Coleman continues to work with all sides for the betterment of our state and nation, Franken offers Minnesotans nothing but polarization and vitriolic personal attacks.”
First off, the last people to accuse others of being partisan should be the current bunch of Republicans! Second, Al Franken Is one of those rare candidates who has the common-sense to see both sides of an issue, and still fight hard for what he believes in.
Sure, Al will make some jokes, but look at it this way, Norm Coleman’s record of “betterment of our state and nation,” as Ron Carey put it, is a joke in itself, so the race will be pretty even there.
It is a long way off, but All Franken might be the ideal candidate for the seat once held by Paul Wellstone.
