IMO - AL Franken should run for Sen. Fraken's seat [View all]

I know...it sounds crazy; but there are no precedents that says no.

Franken is a comedian; and he did a comic thing knowing a picture would be taken.

Compared to POTUS, Fraken is a saint.

By running for the seat he vacated, graciously, So Franken would be letting the people decide - whether or not - they are forgiving him.

Most assuredly, there will be no more bad faith acts.

Just sayin......
