On Tuesday, June 2, 2009 the Minnesota Supreme Court installed Al Franken as the newest US Senator for that state.† Ousted Republican incumbent, Norm Coleman, finally conceded the battle for the disputed US Senate seat.
Franken: I’m smart enough. And doggone it I’m crooked enough!
Senator Al Franken (D-MN) seemed pleased with his victory, ill-gotten and undeserved or not.
Just please, please, please promise America that, no matter what other depravity and evil Sen. Franken commits in the US Senate, we won’t ever have to see him on C-SPAN reprising his Stuart Smalley character – or worse, this!
Senator Al Franken (D-MN): That’s just stinkin’ thinkin!
I suppose it’s fitting for someone like Al Franken to be the one that gives the Democrats a filibuster-proof 60 seat majority in the US Senate. He’s the perfect punchline to a very bad joke…
