Source: beneficent Jupiter to help Al Franken

I think I've located Al Franken's new campaign manager: ...[Al Franken]'s Sun is within 15 minutes of a conjunction to Mars in Gemini, and this strengthens the Gemini influence even more, giving him a strong drive (Mars) to communicate his opinions and ideas. The conjunction of Mars to the Sun often bestows a tremendous amount... Keep reading >>>

Al Franken's first fib (as a Senate candidate)

Al Franken has assuredly told many fibs in his career, but on Monday in Rochester, Minnesota he spoke to a "packed audience" and told them the first publicly-noted fib as a Senate candidate. Now, bear in mind that if Bill Clinton parsed what he said it would be technically accurate, but others will probably not... Keep reading >>>

Al Franken wants a massive amnesty for illegal aliens

In an interview, Al Franken said that he's a supporter of "comprehensive immigration reform". That phrase is a euphemism used by Bush and the Democrats for a massive illegal alien amnesty combined with a "guest" worker program. The Bush/Democrats scheme will flood the U.S. with new legal immigrants, particularly through chain migration: family members can... Keep reading >>>

Al Franken's last day: live coverage

Following an extremely exciting Tom Oliphant segment, Al Franken is now upping the tempo (as if that were possible!), bringing on Joe Conason to pimp his new book, "It can happen here". Al knew that Sinclair Lewis was from Minnesota, but seemed a bit unclear on the meaning of the word "dystopian". Conason jumped in,... Keep reading >>>

Big Dumb Ed Schultz back on XM 167

Next week, crypto-conservative Ed Schultz will be taking over Al Franken's spot on XM Satellite Radio's channel 167, DUmmies say. Schultz is currently only heard for one hour per day, and even that's tape-delayed. Bonus: keep wallowing through the thread to read the righteous smackdown of those bourgeoise people who engage in "middle-class left liberalism".... Keep reading >>>

L.A. City Beat article on Harrison taps out my humor reservoir

It happened like this. I saw this article from L.A. City Beat magazine written by their editor, Dean Kuipers. It concerns not just the no-last-name star of the local show "Harrison on the Edge", but Air America's Los Angeles affiliate KTLK and AAR in general as well. As I scanned the article and looked at...

Air America exits KQDS 1490 AM (Duluth)

I used to think "Duluth" was just a punchline or something, but apparently it's a real city in "Minnesota", a state somewhere north of Canada. Anyway, they appear to have dropped liberal talk, including not only some Air America shows but Big Ed Schultz as well. They're still listed as an AAR affiliate, but that... Keep reading >>>
