Al Franken Campaign News

Just a few days ago, Drudge linked to this article discussing a campaign appearance by Al Franken, reminding me that I - like almost everyone else - had forgotten that he was running for Senator from Minnesota.

I will not repeat that same mistake more than a few times, and I promise wall-to-wall coverage of the former Air America Radio host.

Herewith, from the first link:

"I just had a meeting about all the background of alfalfa"

Note: he means the crop. Meanwhile, in news that mentions Stuart:

[Al Goldstein's candidacy [for President of the U.S.] follows a tradition that began in 1968 with the candidacy of black humorist Dick Gregory, and was continued, most recently, by former wrestler and TV announcer Jesse "The Body" Ventura, who served one term as Governor of Minnesota. [Pr0nographer] Larry Flynt and [pr0n] star Mary Carey, each posted a top twenty finish in California's 2003 free-for-all of a special Governor's election. Liberal actor, writer, and talk show host Al Franken is now running for the Minnesota senator's seat.

Perhaps Stuart will announce his support. Meanwhile:

Failed radio mouth and Senatorial candidate from Minnesota, Al Franken, told David Letterman on the set of the "Late Show" that the USA should reconsider approving the Kyoto Protocols because the treaty is good for the economy — Despite that the ruinous treaty was voted down by a unanimous Senate vote in 1997 for the very reason that it would harm the economy... ...[Stuart says:] "We need to do an Apollo project in renewable energy... We need to have biofuels, we need wind."

On the bright side:

DFL Senate candidate Al Franken announced Wednesday his campaign had raised more than $1.3 million in the first quarter of the year, finishing the period with over $1 million in the bank.

The question, of course, is whether that will continue. How much of that was from Hollywood "liberals" rather than grassroots support? Will they keep giving at the same rate?
