Al Franken is in

Al Franken is running for the Senate in Minnesota. Some of you may not know who is, some of you may have followed his show on Air America, and some of you may know him as Stuart Smalley, the character from Saturday Night Live.

I want you to watch his video announcing his candidacy. He's not your typical candidate. He comes across like an actual human being, more so even than on his syndicated radio show. The way he describes how government assistance has meant the difference in his family, and how his wife's family depended on good government to see them through the tough times. I know what that's like, and he gives it the most charitable possible face. The way he explains it, it's why I'm involved in politics.
