Franken wants to remind us again he isn't funny anymore
It's Minnesota's last day with only one senator and we could only hope that Senator-elect Al Franken might bring some much-needed relief to an often stale and too-serious dance of politics that doesn't get much done in the first place. There's a place for some lighthearted humor to keep us non-believers in the game.
Give up hope now. Franken is too serious for his own good and wants to be sure everyone knows it. In case you missed Franken's interview on NBC's Today Show last week, here it is. He says he lost his funny side long ago. What a disappointment. We just sent another boring white guy to the Senate.
