    republican opponent gives up. Franken will be a confirmed senator real soon, taking away any chance of a Republican filibuster.

    God help us...

    Since his Air America got its rear end handed to it by conservative talk radio I wonder how long it will take him to begin harping for the need for more equality in talk radio. Perhaps resurrecting some version of the fairness doctrine.

    I tell you what Tie, Like Al Franken's character on SNL, Stuart Smalley: I'm going to help you cope, and get by until 2012! I want you to look into the mirror and repeat after me. I'm gonna help this administration! Why? Because I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and, doggonit, people like me!.....sigh

    I absolutely agree!!! and I also agree with you about Jeanine Crapafola!

    Al Frankenstein will probably tone down a little now that he is a senator but his views will still be the same. The big problem is that he is on some powerful committees and will be able to have some high profile influence.

    Al Franken, Chickenhawk

    Did Franken make false claims about his Iraq war opposition?

    Even Alexander Cockburn in Sept. 2005' pointed out Franken's shortcomings with Iraq even over at Air America.

    Where will Franken fall in respect to Iran? In doing some quick searches I was surprised at how little in respect to Iran has been said by Franken but in an Oct. 11, 2008' Senate Debate, Franken did publically oppose military force against Iran and instead supported a type of detente if you will towards Iran. Understanding and respecting Sen. Franken's religious/cultural heritage I don't know what pressures he is under or will experience should a different course develop but considering some of his actions in respect to Iraq, I'm not sure how much Franken is true to what he wants people on both political sides to believe that he is.

    Franken at the Oct. 11th debate
