GOP On Al Franken: A Stirring Tribute to An American Hero

Republicans Reach Across The Lines For Franken

Well done to Minnesota Republicans! Their 'research briefing' on Al Franken is an exceptional tribute to the man's passion, insight and wit. Just a few examples:

Franken Hates Rush Limbaugh
Q: “Do you really hate Limbaugh or is he just an easy target?”
(Jennifer Senior, “Al Franken, Democrats' Favorite Comic Is Politically Incorrect,” The Hill, August 25, 1996)

Franken Plan To Reduce Debt: Blast The Elderly In Rockets Over Snake River And Put It OnPay-Per-View.
“Every Sunday, we put an elderly (or terminally ill-person) in a rocket, fire it over the Snake River, and put it on pay-per-view. The revenues go straight into reducing the debt.” (Al Franken, Rush Limbaugh Is A Big, Fat Idiot, Island Books, p. 139, 1996)

Franken Called President George H.W. Bush A “Dink.”
“And when the networks projected GeorgeBush as the 41st president, comedian Al Franken took to the stage to cheer up the crowd. The Dukakis campaign has asked me to tell you that the views I express here tonight are not the views of the Dukakis campaign, but my own,’ deadpanned the "Saturday Night Live" entertainer-writer. ‘Now that I've got that settled, let me ask you ... " Long pause for effect. ‘ISN'T GEORGE BUSH A DINK?’” (Lois Romano, “Finally! The Fat Lady Sings; In Boston, The Dank Specter Of Defeat,” The Washington Post, November 9, 1988)
