I find it very difficult to believe the attention Franken is getting. He
stopped being funny when he once proclaimed,
"I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and dog gone it, people _like_ me."
A brilliant comedy/sketch writer. I don't remember when he ever became
relevant to political discourse, however. I've given it a shot checking
out his medium market sounding show on the Burlington affiliate. And
I'm a patient man!
I know how important it is for AA to make it as a network. I also know
that if the network can't make a go of it during the most divisive
election cycle in recent memory, then, 'Oh, waiter...'
For Franken's sake, I hope he remembers his roots. His humor and radio
need not be mutually exclusive.
