Franken in ’08

Al Franken made it official today–he wants to be Minnesota’s next Senator. It sounds like a joke out of a lame 1990s movie, but this is the state that brought us Gov. Ventura, so you never know. The video of his campaign announcement is up, and suprisingly for an entertainer, it’s pretty boring–I challenge anybody to get through the nearly 9-minute skit.

But a Kos diarist is impressed:

I can only imagine Al on the Senate floor, championing Democratic values and using his often-devastating wit to carve up his “esteemed Republic colleagues” like a plump Butterball turkey. And going head-to-head against Norm “Which Way Is Up” Coleman…well, that’ll be a sight to see.

As I said in this morning’s C&J: Good luck, Al—you’re good enough, you’re smart enough, and, doggone it…kick him in the balls.
