From On Air to On the Campaign Trail

Al Franken was once a funny man. Then he became a self-righteous blowhard. Now he’s completing the metamorphosis and becoming a full blown politician. That’s right, he’s running for Senate.

Hey, my hat is off to him. It’s easy to sit behind a mic and act as if you have all the answers. It’s much harder to actually put yourself out there. If we could just get Limbaugh, O’Reilly, Dobbs, Olbermann and the rest of the nattering nabobs to shut-up and put-up we’d be better off.

Or, if not better off, at least better entertained. I have a feeling an Al Franken candidacy will be far more amusing than anything the former comic ever said on Air America.
