Al Franken runs for Senate

Al FrankinLook, 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!!!
