Al Franken Backlash

When the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled that author and comedian Al Franken had won his U.S. Senate seat yesterday, the Internet simmered with a mix of jubilant, angry, and relieved posts.

On the Morning Media Menu, ABC News’ senior political reporter Rick Klein analyzed both sides of the debate. One GalleyCat reader had these thoughts: “We are living in a US nightmare. Too many crazy Dems in political office … and now a crude comedian. Please, someone make a time machine and take me back to the Dark Ages, when times were better.”

Even GalleyCat editor Ron Hogan tweeted his opinion: “Dear Republicans: A party that holds Fred Dalton Thompson in high esteem can just shut the hell up about Al Franken, thank you very much.”
