Franken is nothing more than an entertainer, and a poor one at best. He stole the election; we all know that.

What an idiot. Did you hear how he disallowed Leibermann additional time to finish his comments? What a scum bag.

What's great about this, and what you are totally missing,is that Franken is calling them out for LYING. Same thing I'm always telling the liars here, QUIT LYING.

I'm none too excited about the latest iteration of the Senate Health Bill, but Franken's frankness is amusing as always!
I am telling you , Frankens dubious entrance to the senate was one of the biggest disgraces in politics, but I am now starting to believe it turn out to be a gift from God.

Great, correct him on the pedantic points of your party's healthcare bill. There's no need for you to gloat about it, even though we know this turkey is going to pass not matter what we have to say.

I can't believe some people are so callous. What if this person needs the benefits now? And then insulting him by saying he's from Mars because he disagrees with your socialist ideology.

Actually, some of the benefits do start right away, such as elimination of pre-existing conditions.

Franken didn't allow the extra time because the Republicans were engaged in a fillibuster, trying to drag things out to stall a vote before the Christmas break. Rules where enforced on everyone so they could get the vote in.

He may also have been an entertainer but he also graduated from Harvard *** laude with a B.A. in political science.

Which, for me, is EXTREMELY important. And I suspect for many many many others.
