Al Franken

As I write this, he's wrapping up his final Air America show and announcing his candidacy for the US Senate in 2008. He'll be running against Norm Coleman, who likely wouldn't have had a job these last six years had Paul Wellstone's corpse been allowed to stay on the ticket (It certainly could have beaten Fritz Mondale had there been a primary).

I wasn't the biggest fan of his (Or any other) Air America show, But I'm looking forward to his Senate run. I'm particularly interested in watching the Republicans try to play the "celebrity" card--- You know, where they villify a Harvard graduate radio host, yet fail to see a problem with an Austrian born movie star as governor.

Go Al.
