Franken's list of Democratic beliefs, slightly modified

Apparently Al Franken has compiled a list of Democratic/"liberal" beliefs, and they're reprinted here. Let's see if we can make them a bit more realistic: * We stand for clean water, clean air, reduced emissions, alternative fuels - we don’t cater to the special interest groups that claim there is no global warming, groups that...

Chuck D wants you to be aware

From "Chuck D urges awareness": On Thursday night, Chuck D, a founding member of celebrated rap group Public Enemy, delivered a free-wheeling talk at Union College, where he touched on subjects such as history, sociology and musicology, to name a few. About 200 people attended the talk, called "Race, Rap, Reality and Technology." The rap... Keep reading >>>

Cindy Sheehan, Janeane Garofalo at far-left concert

It's been quite a while since we featured formerly-cute formerly-slightly-funny comic Janeane Garofalo here, and we're reaching a bit low in the barrel to announce that she'll be broadcasting her show (she still has a show?) live from a "peace" concert which will also feature Cindy Sheehan. The concert will coincide with the three-year anniversary... Keep reading >>>

Meet Senator Al Franken's daughter

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... Keep reading >>>

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... Keep reading >>>

New York Times on Katherine Lanpher

Stephen P. Williams of the NY Times offers a portrait of former Al Franken co-host Katherine Lanpher that has to be read to be believed: "Celebrity From the Midwest Finds a New Life in New York". I think at least three thoughts were uppermost in the writer's mind: 1. Diss the Midwest and Midwesterners. 2.... Keep reading >>>

Air America Radio podcasts not going smoothly

Air America's last desperate attempt to squeeze the last remaining shekels out of their last remaining listeners appears to be having a bit of a problem. Earlier this month they started a "premium" podcasting service, and the screenshot to the right is from their support forum. The podcast pricing starts at $2 for a... Keep reading >>>

Al Franken reflects on the left's lack of class

Fresh from the HuffPost comes "Al Franken: Reflections on the Wellstone Memorial and the King Funeral". Even though there are already 172 comments at post time, none have so far included a link to this site, nor do any of them have the word 'club', as in Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club. Feel free...

The Al Franken / George Soros axis

Previous comments have commented on the lack of comments here (aka 'argumentem ad lackum commentum'). I would like to rectify that situation with a fun game. Who can find the closest link between Al Franken and George Soros? Have they ever met? Has George donated money to Stuart's PAC? Does Al Franken do his radio... Keep reading >>>

Buffalo to get diverse, spirited dialog

Air America Radio is coming to Buffalo, New York. In fact, that fine frozen city is going to get two "liberal" yakkers: a "moderate" version on WWKB featuring Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz and others, as well as a more shrieking version of "liberalism" on WHLD. The latter, of course, will feature Air America... Keep reading >>>

Air America Radio sponsoring Pope-bashing "comic"

Kate Clinton (no relation to Bubba) is a famous lesbian comic who apparently bashes the Pope in her act: "I've had to learn a whole new pope," laughed Clinton during an interview from her home in New York. "Anyway, it's the same-old, same-old, but this guy wears red shoes -- little red pumps. And then... Keep reading >>>

Al Franken "Midwest Values PAC" donates to "democratic socialist"

Al Franken has formed a Political Action Committee called the "Midwest Values PAC" (site), and he's already received almost $170,000: Contributors to Franken's PAC include "Seinfeld" co-creator and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Larry David ($5,000); RealNetworks CEO Rob Glaser ($5,000); the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers PAC ($5,000), and the United Transportation Union PAC ($5,000)......

Al Franken called on Abramoff talking points

The "Mac Weekly" - a college newspaper - sat down for an interview with Al Franken and managed to do what all of his other interviewers have studiously avoided to do: ask him a tough question. You can practically see Stuart getting ready to throw a chair during this bit: MW: About that, why would... Keep reading >>>
