unfunny comedian-turned-senator al franken

he was on SNL for the longest time (everyone else moved on to bigger and better things) and was never funny.
Then he got elected to the senate

al franken reminisces on his harvard days
"It's not preppies, cause I'm a preppie myself. I just don't like homosexuals. If you ask me, they're all homosexuals in the Pudding. Hey, I was glad when that Pudding homosexual got killed in Philadelphia."

unfunny comedian (and democratic senator) al franken tries to apologize for a 3rd time
'Dear Leanne,
'I want to apologize to you personally. I don't know what was in my head when I took that picture. That doesn't matter. There's no excuse. I understand why you feel violated by that photo. I remember that rehearsal differently. What's important is the impact on you and you felt violated by my actions. For that I apologize. I have tremendous respect for you and the work you do for the USO. I am so sorry.
'Sincerely, Al Franken'


Let's look at that:
"I remember that rehearsal differently. What's important is the impact on you and you felt violated by my actions. For that I apologize"

Is he really calling her a liar and saying he's sorry she's upset? That's not an apology

Hey, when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything ... Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.

Yep! When you are a celebrity, there's no one above you to say "You're Fired!"

al franken seems to have a unique way of dealing with the press.
I for one am relieved that al franken didn't follow through on his plan to drug and rape journalist Lesley Stahl

Charlie Rose, Bill Clinton again and again... (is he still alive?)

I think we should return to Byzantine/Ottoman customs. At least to some of them.

There were some cases of sexual harassment by women. Eunuchs still safer.
