Al Franken mocks college student (Minnesota mean)

It's not as bad as the time when Al Franken mocked a legless Vietnam veteran, but the latest incident of Stuart Smalley going off the rails came earlier this month at Carleton College in Minnesota. It seems that Peter Fritz - a senior studying history - didn't want to be in a group photo with the Senate candidate. Someone shouted out that Fritz was... a conservative, sending Al Franken into yet another unhinged tirade:
...Franken reportedly began peppering Fritz with questions about supporting President George W. Bush and former President Ronald Reagan's tax hikes. Fritz told me he got tense and, as he does in those situations, started chewing the inside of his mouth, a gesture he said was mimicked by Franken; Fritz also thought his style of speech was mocked by Franken.

An aide eventually interrupted Franken's act, Fritz said, by announcing to the candidate that it was time to go.

Fritz told me Monday that he then stuck out his hand to shake Franken's. "Well, at least it's nice to meet you," the GOPer said he told Franken, who reportedly replied, I can't say the same.

There was no handshake, said Fritz.
And, Fritz' account of the events was backed up by the president of the Carleton Dems. Al Franken truly has no class.
