In case you weren’t paying attention, I declared Al Franken the winner of the Minnesota race for U.S. Senate back on Jan. 5.
He’ll finally get sworn in tomorrow. About time.
Al Franken may not be a Mark Twain Twain/Sam Clemens. But he’s a Harvard grad, policy wonk, a great public speaker, professionally funny and gives better than he gets, always. And, based on his personal history, he’s a rational, sex-positive guy and in the vanguard of defending freedom of speech and in expression. I couldn’t ask for a better U.S. Senator.
So thank you, Minnesota, for giving the rest of us at least five and a half years of Al Franken, U.S. Senator.
We get a guy who can shoot Ann Coulter’s fish in a barrel:
And we also get a guy who can do Mick Jagger:
