Hey, wait. That’s not funny.
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Comedian Al Franken grabbed the Democratic nomination Tuesday for U.S. Senate in Minnesota, setting up a showdown with Republican Sen. Norm Coleman.
Not “Statesman” Al Franken?
Not “former State Representative” Al Franken?
Not “Entrepreneur” Al Franken?
Not “Former Mayor” Al Franken?
Not “former War Hero” Al Franken?
Not “Prominent Attorney” Al Franken?
Not “former Professor” Al Franken?
Not “Community Organizer” Al Franken?
Not “(failed) Radio Political Commentator” Al Franken?
Not even “long-time Minnesota Resident” Al Franken?
The AP, ostensibly not able to apply any other credible label to Mr. Franken, listed him as “Comedian” Al Franken.
Even less funny, 163,000 Minnesotans actually went out of their way to cast a primary vote for a candidate listed as a “Comedian.”
Seriously, folks (pun intended) are you telling me the best candidate the DFL in Minnesota can muster is a vulgar, tax-dodging, carpet bagging “Comedian?”
That’s all ya got?
Is this thing on?
