The best part of politics: because they're all screwing us anyway.

So that's how they do it in Minnesota

From the NYT article on Al Franken's possible Senatorial ambitions:

"I jumped ya twice in Thief River Falls," said a middle-age woman in greeting at the pre-speech party in a tent next to the Ted Mann Concert Hall at the University of Minnesota here. The seeming inference of long-ago sexual congress would cause deep blushing elsewhere, but it actually meant that Faith Rud and Mr. Franken had bonded in a far more profoundly Minnesotan way: she had used jumper cables to revive his Volkswagen bus on a cold night long ago after a college gig.

    God, is he still talking about running for Senate? He'll have to be much less of an asshole on the campaign trail than he is on his radio show.

    Can you imagine what Rush Limbaugh would be like if he ran for public office?

    I can see it now:

    Reporter: Mr. Limbaugh, what do you say to the critics--

    Limbaugh: I don't listen to those critics. They are nothing but a bunch of pink commie f***. Liberals have destroyed this country and it's high time that we take it back.

    And the sad thing is that he'd probably win anyway....

    "Asshole"? Listen, bub, Franken couldn't possibly be as big an asshole as Norm Coleman, who tried to implicate George Galloway in the Oil For Food scandal. That is, until Galloway made Coleman wear his ass for a party hat. Coleman looks and acts like Norman Osborne (aka the Green Goblin) on a bad hair day.

    I can't wait for Franken to make Coleman wear his ass for a party hat again.
