Since Al Franken's name has come up...my favorite Franken bit
I don't see him as the VP nominee, but he would have my absolute support. Hearing his name come up last week, though, reminded me of my favorite bit, which wasn't on SNL.
When he was a host on Air America he filled (if I remember correctly) 3 hours of airtime each day. I listened to most and he was a great liberal voice. During the '08 campaign, he had on Joe the Plumber while he was a national story. Franken only asked him questions about plumbing. He kept it up, deadpan, for the entire interview. I was in stitches. He is very good a framing, incredibly quick witted and biting when needs be. He'd be great on the trail.
Anyone know how to find the Joe the Plumber interview?
"I didn't like Bush, that makes me part of the real left!" seems to be de rigeur. I wonder how long before "I didn't like Trump, so that makes me the real left!" comes in?
