al franken...it's too good to be true

Al Franken is one of the funniest, brightest, and most intelligent Americans to ever draw swords with the Republican media machinery. His entertainment background, and politically motivated career path has led him to putting a stake in the heart of the conservative right wing movement.

we finally saw an end to the bush regime (mccain and that aweful palin into the white house) with the election of Obama. we witnessed an END to pull of the nasty republican party and we thought....what could be better? well, i'm not sure it's better but i'll just say that Franken as the newly "recognized" senator of Minnesota is the cherry on the cake we're happy to have.

this race was determined by 312 votes out of 2.9 million cast and was contested by the incumbant senator m coleman. not only would Franken's win give the democrats a "super majority" in the senate, but at the same time it would also extinguish the republican grip on things American.

essentially this is like winning the lottery 2x in one year. don't be too happy tho, the soul/blood sucking republican party is retooling as we speak, and from the ashes anything can arise. but for now, we must rejoice.

PLEASE read Al Franken's book

Lies (And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them): A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right (Hardcover)

you'll get a great idea about what this important american figure is all about.
