Al Franken, Senator

Is it just me...

or is it too much of an irony that Al Franken - former comedian - is now a confirmed U.S. Senator? Surely, this must be a joke.

Sadly and surrealy, it is not. If it's a joke, I'm not laughing.

May our nation be kept as safe as possible from the monstrous damage that will come during, at least, the next 3.5 years. Franken must be singing praises to the gods of legal manipulation and truth distortion as I type.

Despite his SNL stature, my guess is that, because of that background, most of Franken's professional colleagues will have a hard time taking him all that seriously. I think he'll be lucky to get anything done.
