Al Franken standing up to lies and stuff

Al Franken paid a brief visit to Lane Community College in Eugene Oregon yesterday, and the local KVAL offers a stock report much like we've read over and over when Stuart comes to town. However, it contains some interesting comments:
1. "It's democracy in action, actually, I think... People coming out, able to speak their mind, maybe getting a different opinion than the predominant maybe right-wing echo chamber that's out there."

2. "He's the only one who's stood up to Rush Limbaugh and all those folks on the right... And with all the lies and stuff, it's good that somebody is calling it like it is."

3. "One of the things that Al Franken does, is he puts a little humor in some of these stories that are, you know what, they're pretty heavy day after day after day... And I think with some humor and some action we can really make change."
Then, KVAL reporter Andy Peterson cornered Al Franken and forced him to admit his role in the Air America Radio scandal, obtaining a full and complete confession.

Just kidding! Andy Peterson is a real "reporter".
