Al Franken's Gaffes. The former TV comedian isn't ready for prime time in the Senate.

With the help of voter fraud from the democrats, this human trash bag Al Franken STOLE the election from Norm Coleman and became a U.S Senator. How embarrassing and disgraceful.

Former TV comedian Al Franken continues to demonstrate why he's not ready for prime time in the Senate. Last week, GOP Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was giving a serious speech on the nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. He noticed Senator Franken, who was in the presiding officer's chair in front of him, gesticulating and making faces at him as he criticized Ms. Kagan. "Senate aides said they were shocked that Franken would flout the decorum of the chamber during such a solemn occasion," reported The Hill newspaper.

After he had finished, Mr. McConnell made clear he wasn't amused by walking up to the dais and telling Mr. Franken: "This is not 'Saturday Night Live,' Al." Afterward, a chastened Senator Franken walked to Mr. McConnell's office to apologize. Not finding him, he wrote a note instead.

The McConnell incident is not the only one Senator Franken might regret. Last week, as the Senate's most conspicuous liberal, he certainly did Democratic Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin no favors while campaigning for her in conservative South Dakota. "She has voted differently than I voted on a couple of things," Mr. Franken told an audience in Rapid City. "But we need to be able to have somebody here in South Dakota who's going to vote for Speaker Pelosi, not for Speaker Boehner."

Ms. Herseth Sandlin must have winced. Nancy Pelosi is decidedly unpopular in South Dakota, and Ms. Herseth Sandlin is clearly trying to win re-election by keeping her distance from the Speaker, going so far as to run TV ads against Ms. Pelosi's "trillion dollar health care plan." READ MORE...
