Al Franken is being sworn in as a United States Senator today. For more, we turn to cartoonist Joe Heller:
H/T Dave Oliveria.
And here, then, is the man who according to Fox News' Brian Kilmeade, is "an embarrassment to America," a "hateful character," "a clown of a person," and "maniacal by nature." To sum it all up, "He is an angry, evil person who wrote two hateful books. He is a bitter, partisan pundit without any depth to his character and the people of Minnesota have thrust him upon us."
For the record, speaking of those "two hateful books" (I wonder which of Franken's three political books Kilmeade didn't finde hateful?), I loved "Lies and the Lying Liars that Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right" but could have done without "Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot: And Other Observations." The first was well-researched political commentary with jokes and satire thrown in; the second was comedy with a side of politics. Funny, but not really worth the time it took to read. "Lies" was brilliant, though! I've seen few books better-researched.
