In Defense of Al Franken

I try to post on subjects that you won't find anywhere else. It's for that reason that I didn't mention Al Franken's decision to run for the Senate in 2008. In the May 2007 issue of Playboy, the Playboy Forum has an article by author Curtis White that is highly critical of Al Franken. Articles in the forum tend to be thoughtful as well as entertaining but this particular article was pointless. For instance, White devotes six paragraphs to criticizing Franken for pointing out the simple fact that liberals love America (e.g., here is what Franken has written: "We [liberals] love America just as much as they do. But in a different way. You see, they love America the way a 4-year-old loves her mommy. Liberals love America like grown-ups"). To show you where White is coming from, here is the concluding sentence of his article: " To prefer a Democrat to a Republican is at best to prefer death by a thousand cuts to a good, clean bullet to the back of the skull."

This is sophistry. Does anyone think that this country would not be much different had not Bush and his cronies stolen the 2000 election? White is hopeless. Al Franken is someone who stepped up when nobody else would. In the 1990's, Democrats were having their brains being bashed in by a radio bully with an audience of 20 million. The national Democrats did nothing about it (I have a story I will post soon about this). Al Franken filled the void by writing Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot and Other Observations. He followed that with several other books, most notably Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right. This is a man who knows the score.

Addendum: Puffing up my Sitemeter Stats by Appealing to Horndog Web Searchers
The May 2007 issue of Playboy also had the pictorial "The Girls of Conference USA" (Dang, Hef still has not taken my advice to do a photo shoot of the girls of the Mid-American Conference). Who were the hottest women in this pictorial? Based on the pictures, here are my choices:
The Winner: Sammie Claymont of Rice
First Runner Up: Haydn Porter of Tulsa
Second Runner Up: Leela Martin of Memphis
Third Runner Up: Aylisa Park of UTEP
Special Mention: Holly Tippin of Tulsa, Vanessa Vega of and Amanda Garcia of Texas El Paso, Stella Hayward of Rice, Adrienne Day of Southern Miss, Taylor Reid of Southern Methodist, Angela Leigh of Marshall, Mandy Calloway of Kayli Sands of the University of Houston, Mia Joseph of Central Florida, and Morgan Jade of Tulane.
Honorable Mention: Madison Shepard, Vanessa Milian, Natalie Cruz, Alexis Callaway, Victoria Johnson, Nancy Salas, Akantha Edwards, Anahi Casas, Sandy Morales, Mila Cruz, and Sophia Gavali of UTEP, Olivia Lyric of Memphis, Jamie Junior of East Carolina, Megan Pittman of Alabama at Birmingham, Carrie Gene, Terra Bilboise, Tracy Alexander, and Kala Marlane of Southern Mississippi, and Victoria Lynn, Angela Noel, and Ariana Lynn of Central Florida.
