First I would like to wish Betty good luck with her surgery. I might be in NYC Saturday and if so I will drop in to check on her for the blog nation.
Now, getting to the title of my post... it leaked yesterday that Al Franken will run for US Senate in 2008. http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory?id=2839573 So, if you are unlike me and actually know how to write a check (a skill which I am yet to master), I suggest you do so imminently.
Franken is a great man who I believe would make a good Senator (especially in this political climate). And while he might not have the experience of such beloved heroes as Jim Webb (joke), he knows his stuff and would represent the Left I'm sure in a more faithful manner than "Democrats" like Webb and Casey.
Finally, even if you don't want to write a check to Al, at least tell your friends from Minnesota to give him their vote...God knows he'll need it. He might not have the vote of the real Barack, but he's got this Obamarama's support.
