lying liars

Okay, I don't even know who Al Franken is, but this is frigging hilarious. Anyone who mocks Fox News is a friend of mine.

I think Paul Franken's biggest claim to fame is mocking my state's former senator, Paul Simon.

Ever see the time Paul Simon was called upon to host Saturday Night Live for some reason, under the mistaken impression that he was to be the musical guest (who was, well, Paul Simon)? Comedy gold.

Franken has a way of bringing the comedian out of politicians. I always appreciated his impersonation of Paul Tsongas trolling for votes at a Star Trek convention. "I don't want to be Santa Claus!" "I wrote a book!"

I don't think many people have seen this, but once he was on C-SPAN. I have no idea how he got invited to this party, but there was some speech he was giving at a Department of the Interior thing celebrating the Paperwork Reduction Act. So he gave a speech extolling the virtues of government waste and obfuscated language, and read from some wasteful watershed impact report written (he said) by his uncle during the Depression.

Fox News doesn't think he's funny? They're just jealous that they can't turn mind-numbing bureaucracy into a stand-up routine. The last time they tried, Bill O'Reilly was giving a speech at a benefit for inner-city youth. The youth were late, and he announced, "I hope they're not outside stealing our hubcaps." Heil! I mean, Har!

"In its court papers, Fox described the author and liberal commentator ...."He is not a well-respected voice in American politics; rather, he appears to be shrill and unstable. His views lack any serious depth or insight."
