Al Franken releases his candidacy video

Last year it was penguin movies, this year it's candidate videos on the internet. Humorist and former Air America host, Al Franken, as expected, today announced his candidacy for the senate seat currently held by Norm Coleman. The eight and a half-minute video features anecdotes about his middle class childhood in St. Louis Park and his wife's more difficult Maine upbringing. He also does what I can only assume is a workmanlike impression of his father. Check out the video and let us know if Al's ready for prime time.
