One More Reason to Listen to Al Franken on Air America Radio
This morning, Al took on "boy-man" Ralph Reed. It was a gas. One thing I learned about Reed that I didn't know: as a student, Reed was thrown off the University of Georgia's student newspaper, The Red and Black, for plagiarizing a negative review of the Academy Award winning film Gandhi from a review from Commentary. One statement Reed didn't swipe from the Commentary review was his reference to the leader of the Indian independence movement as the "ninny of the 20th century."
