This guy was a marginal comedy writer for SNL. For the past eight years he's been masquerading as a U.S. senator and hasn't contributed nothing to his state or the nation of substance. But, in the Leftist world, he's a star! That's how out of tough the Democrat Party is with regular people. Al Franken is literally a joke that's not funny.
NewsBusters reports to underline how The Washington Post is a Democratic Party newspaper, the Sunday edition has a front-page puff piece on Sen. Al Franken. “Franken takes a judicious approach,” reads the newspaper headline. Online, the love is more palpable: “Al Franken may be the perfect senator for the Trump era — a deadly serious funnyman.”Post reporter Karen Tumulty relates how the former comedian is now super-serious, as he obsesses over “torrefaction” and “loan guarantees for Native American reservations," and then the theme arrives:At the dawn of a presidency that stretches the limits of late-night parody, and at a moment when an out-of-power Democratic Party is trying to find its voice, the former comedian and satirist may be having a breakout moment as a political star.
