Al Franken Calling It Quits

Posted by Dave Blount at January 31, 2007 5:47 AM

Wonderful news: the obnoxious Al Franken has set February 14 as the last day he will befoul the radio waves with his moonbattery, as his Air America continues to flounder in bankruptcy.

But there's a cloud inside this silver lining. He may actually run for a Senate seat in Minnesota, where he moved from New York last year. Minnesota has offered us the first pro wrestler Governor and the first Muslim Congressman; next could be the first Senator who is literally a clown, if not a very funny one.

In a possible reference to a Senate run, Franken warns that his last show will be "sort of a valentine."


On a tip from Wiggins.
