Look, Al Franken isn’t perfect. On the other hand, he was the first one that would and could stand up to the Republican onslaught. He was the first that spoke with a clear voice that I heard. His books were/are funny and honest. His books were well researched. He documented his sources with the care of a scholar. He was the perfect person to hold down the top spot at Air America. His show wasn’t perfect but he did gain a large and loyal following. He used humor and biting sarcasm to make his points. Could he have been more entertaining? Could he have been less preachy?
The bottom-line is Al Franken has been a leading voice in liberalism. He understands the needs of America. He has thought about national problems. He will not be perfect. He will be a voice that will not back down when faced with Republican blather. If I lived in Minnesota, I would vote for Al.
Good Luck, Al. Run, Al, run!!!
