And we all thought electing a “professional” wrestler as governor was a joke.
Everyone knows his SNL stint as the unfunniest of the initial SNLers. But, I bet a lot of people didn’t realize he’s an accomplished author as well. A couple of his tomes:
- Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot
- Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right
- Why Not Me?: The Inside Story of the Making and Unmaking of the Franken Presidency
And, we can’t forget his Air America stint. It’s daily crashing and burning was lots more entertaining than its content.
Franken has made a career, although I don’t see how, of attacking and mocking people he doesn’t agree with for whatever reason he may see fit. His SNL career was cut short by attacking Silverman at NBC, his publishing career has pretty much been only about attacking Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Riley, and conservatives in general. And, of course, his broadcast career was based exclusively on attacking conservatives. I see two outcomes of his stint in DC. He wont’ get anything done. And, I would imagine Minnesota’s “other” senator, Amy Klobuchar, will tire quickly of trying to get anything done for Minnesota with Franken running his mouth. As a freshman senator, and a reputation of attacking those he disagrees with, Franken’s a double-weighted anchor around Amy’s, and Minnesota, neck. However, a large enough minority of voters voted for this joke to get him close enough to steal the election. So, Minnesota, you’ll reap what you sew. You send us an unfunny joke to represent you all, we’ll send a punchline back when you need us.
