Playboygate appears to have had an impact on the chances of former alleged funnyman Al Franken, as a new Quinnipiac University poll shows Norm Coleman leading by 10 points. Meanwhile and as a control, Barack Obama is leading John McCain by 17 points. Further, Coleman is ahead by 20 points among independents.
According to Franken spokeshackette Jess McIntosh:
"We've seen all sorts of polls saying all sorts of things, and I'm sure that'll continue all the way through November... This is a close race and we're very excited about where we are."
At this point in time, Franken should consider making his run simply performance art, complete with a mockumentary documenting his attempt. He might as well make some money off the deal, since he's not going to be moving to DC.
