Kudos to you, Al Franken, America's newest Senator!
I haven't seen anyone else assuage a teabag mob this effectively.

I don’t know if it is Al’s grasp of the facts or the genial nature of the folks at the Minnesota state fair, but this is what a public debate should look like. It seems like they might even get together for some milk and bars afterward, though I do wish there was less inclination to blame things on “the immigrants” by white men who live on land far from their ancestral home. But hey, take what you can get.
