Alan Stuart "Al" Franken (born May 21, 1951) is the junior United States Senator from Minnesota. Franken before becoming a senator achieved note as a writer and performer for the television show Saturday Night Live from its inception in 1975 before moving to writing and acting in films and television shows. He then became a political commentator, author of five books and host of a nationally syndicated radio show on the Air America Radio network. Then in 2008, Franken narrowly defeated incumbent Republican Senator Norm Coleman, and then he was sworn in to the Senate on July 7, 2009.
Why am i telling you all this? Well, mostly to introduce you to the most amazing senator ever. Want to know why he is the most amazing senator ever? No, it not because he was on SNL, it is because he, unlike so many, is a true senator. How is he a true senator you ask? Well that is easy, he doesn't just go along with what is told to him. He reads and questions anything in front of him and ask the hard questions. Here is a clip at a resent meeting about DOMA ( defense of marriage act, if you didn't know. Which is a minimal a shitty law, and at worst a law that actually hurts children of gay couples, which one of the founders of DOMA admitted to actually). Watch Al, catch focus on the family ( a shitty activist group some call a hate activist group) witness in a horrible horrible shitty lie, which all Al had to do to catch him was read the report which was presented to him by focus on the family. Watch and enjoy as much as i did.
I really wish we had more senator like AL, who actually did their jobs, like Al just did. I have seen other chips of him as well, tearing down the likes of apple and many others in stupid lies. I honestly don't know what Al, personal feeling on DOMA and FotF are, but that shouldn't matter as he is showing here. He is only doing his job of exposing the lies and asking questions. If every senator was like Al, America would be a much better place.
Well that is all peace out
