Senator Al Franken?

Sen. Al Franken? Hey, I like Jon Stewart a lot. But I don't think a President Stewart would be a good idea. Same deal here.

I can just picture the Senate now:

"Mr. Cheney, I believe this legislation needs to be presented to the Senate as a whole."

"Why, Mr. Franken? It's not even gone to commitee yet."

"Because, sir, I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me."


Seriously ... he'd be as good for the Democrats as Rush Limbaugh would be for the Republicans. He belongs as a polemic, not as a legislator.
