Franken Opponent Finds Out Celebrity Trumps Qualifications
I had assumed that Al Franken would be running unopposed for Democratic Senate in Minnesota. Turns out that a lawyer and activist is running against him. See this for more. Poor Mr. Ciresi is finding out that Al Franken's boorish celebrity is more valuable then any of the things he can bring to the table, such as being an activist lawyer. I would bet that he would be a better representative of Minnesota then Mr. Franken, but we must support his run as hopefully Norm Coleman can pull it out. If the Republican candidate runs strong as it looks there is much hope for retaining this seat, that last year looked pretty bleak.
