Thomasin Franken is the daughter of Al Franken. The latter is - still! - considering running for Senator from Minnesota. Normally we wouldn't discuss the daughters of a politician. Unless, of course, she brings it on herself.
What subject matter do you think young Thomasin choose for a posting at the Huffington Post? World peace? The Kyoto Accords? Global warming's effects on the golden sturgeon of far northern Minnesota?
No, she choose peeing. Yes, that's right: urination.
Yes, that's right, she's got a column with bathroom tips. Now, I have to admit, I find it oddly stimulating, but it's hardly the type of column we'd expect from the daughter of a Senatorial candidate, and be assured that it will be used against him by his opponents.
UPDATE: As Scott points out in the comments, she is indeed stepping into Randi Rhodes territory. Maybe she's trying to send a message to Al Franken's rival.

At least 4. And let's be honest: Mike Malloy would KILL for an audience that size.

So why isn't Stuart Smalley formally declaring his candidacy for senate? Could it be AAR is funding him an above market salary so he can use it as personal funds to spend on a political campaign when he does declare? He can even borrow against personal funds during a campaign, so the more AAR funnels to him as a non declared canidate, the more he can spend and borrow once he does.

Someone needs to send George Soros and the rest of the suckers (willing to bail out Air America) their ratings. They must have twisted and cherry picked the facts and info. regarding their self-proclaimed success. Now they have the gall to take credit if the Republicans lose the House of Reps. Those boobs who are throwing money down the drain need to know how can Air America influence anyone with ratings so low. Is Soros aware Air America must pay staions to broadcast?

By the way, we've decided to take a trick from the Dems playbook, and have stopped going to movies. Why subsidize an industry devoted to pressing the hard left Democratic agenda?
Pass it on....
