Comments on: Al Franken’s moment of backsliding… http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/08/06/al-frankens-moment-of-backsliding/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: emh http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2010/08/06/al-frankens-moment-of-backsliding/comment-page-1/#comment-409022 Tue, 10 Aug 2010 11:36:45 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/frontrow/?p=28853#comment-409022 Franken has stood up for the truth more than the party line since he entered the senate. Imagine having to sit in a session of the senate and listen to the partisan bull@#%$ that prevents anything meaningful from getting done. I dare say that if you got all the past writers and actors form SNL together for a week they could probably get more done to help this country than the congress has under Obama and Bush together. It takes brains to be a comedian but any idiot can be a politician.

Despite this fact, we don’t need a childish comedy acts from our “leaders”…this only further erodes public confidence. It’s time for Washington to grow up and be genuine. Where are the Lincoln’s of our day?

While I agree the Senate is a circus, having Senators behave that way makes the situation worse. Im not a fan of his politics but I found his humor funny, just don’t do it on the Senate floor please.

The “greatest deliberative body in the world” has become a farce.
