Al Franken Fan Club — Sign Me Up
Al Franken Is The Change We've Been Waiting For
Seriously. This guy is good.
I don't think there's another Senator in either party that can stand there and have that kind of discussion with a crowd—particularly a crowd of his political adversaries.
He's informed, he's engaged and engaging, he speaks clearly and directly and treats the people he's talking to like adults. He answered every question and treated each questioner with respect—and received it in kind.
Every one of those teabaggers will walk away from that conversation, at the very least, questioning what they thought they knew going in. Some might even walk away persuaded.
The GOP should be scared shitless of that guy—maybe they already are and that's why they stalled the election certification so long.
As for the rest of the Democrats—all the way up to Obama: Watch, and take fucking notes, you jackasses.
