Al Franken: Retardus MaximusComic genius, Al Franken, is at it again at Arianna Huffington's blog. No wonder the left bows in deference to his deft ability to weave between the blurry Mason/Dixon at the border of satire and reality. He's the anti-Rove:
That's right -- it isn't a one-day holiday like Fitzmas. This could go on and on. One day a great gift like Libby, the next day a pair of socks (Ari Fleischer), the next day, who knows: maybe an Xbox 360 (Karl Rove)! Maybe this can be dragged out until the 2006 midterms.
Al's been taxing those uber-gifted synapses lately to great effect. Let's give him a break. It takes a lot of work to compare Karl Rove to an X-Box. Saturday Night Live must be having major withdrawl pangs for him. Also, "Maybe this can be dragged out until the 2006 elections?" Pure, ascerbic tactical genius. I would have never thought of that. Al again manages to pull another nut from the rubbish with this little gem. A surgical extraction of the highest caliber, if you ask me:
It occurs to me that all of this may be about covering up the phony rationale for the march to war.Al has an uncanny ability to free a statue from the marble, the likes of which has not been seen since Michaelangelo carved the Pieta.
UPDATE: Franken very skillfully rooted out the truth about Bill O'Reilly. The only problem for Al is that it was what Bill said about himself anyway.
Short bus, please.
