Al Franken acts out, and then fails to amuse on the Daily Show after bombing on Letterman. You hear about him running for the Senate in a few years, but the longer all this stuff goes on (and let's not forget the ongoing Air America/Gloria Wise scandal, which the MSM seem awfully reluctant to ask Al about) the more you have to wonder if the DFL would be that suicidally desperate for someone to run against Coleman or defend Dayton's seat.

On a related topic, Ed Driscoll looks at the dubious future of newspapers and the related topic of professional guilds. Do we really want the government deciding who the real reporters are? We just got rid of one of those regimes a few years back, didn't we?

I saw part of the Letterman segment.

I honestly don't think most Minnesotans would consider him a serious candidate. He's too much of a smart aleck ass to win. I think he would turn off a lot of voters. Say one thing for Jessie Ventura, he did have a friendly personality. Franken doesn't.

Agreed - and it's only gotten worse of late.

Wow, that never even occurred to me. He would make a good Joker, wouldn't he?
