I really didn’t understand the voters of Minnesota when they first elected the FAR-LEFT Al Franken to the United States Senate. But, then again, those same folks elected wrestler and movie actor, Jesse Ventura, to Governor.
The GOP will probably target this seat when Franken comes up for re-election in four years. However, a lot of politics can happen, including a Presidential campaign, in the meantime.
But, Senator Al Franken, has to continue to be viewed as an embarrassment to a Democratic Party which is reeling from two years of an Obama Administration.

On the other hand, Al Franken (Democrat from Minnesota, Let-wing clown) is a United States Senator too.

Well, Minnesota voters elected this moron. Remember they also elected Jesse Ventura over Norm Coleman too.
Sen.-elect Al Franken, D-Minn., talks to supporters during a rally at the mall of the Minnesota State Capitol in St Paul, Minn., Wednesday, July 1, 2009No surprise here.
Forty-four percent (44%) of U.S. voters have an unfavorable opinion of former â€œSaturday Night Liveâ€ comedy writer Al Franken as he prepares to join the U.S. Senate as its newest Democratic member.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 34% have a favorable opinion of Franken, who will be sworn in next week as a senator from Minnesota. Twenty-two percent (22%) are not sure what they think of him.
It is fairly typical for individual legislators to have negative favorability ratings on a national basis.
Thereâ€™s clearly more intense feeling among those who donâ€™t like Franken. Twelve percent (12%) of voters have a very favorable view of the new senator, compared to 29% who have a very unfavorable opinion.
Similarly, 19% of Democrats have a very favorable view of Franken, while 51% of Republicans and 32% of voters not affiliated with either party regard him very unfavorably.
Al Franken is a far left comic that represents more of the Hollwood elite than every day Americans. But, hey he is a Democrat and they care, right?
Flap wonders about the people of Minnesota. First, they elect that moron Jesse Ventura as Governor and now Franken.
What are they thinking?
Then again, California elected Arnold Schwarzenegger, so Flap should talk.
Janeane Garofolo is a joke – even for a third rate stand-up comedian.
Read her interview where she called Sarah Palin and the Republican Party “small-minded and mean-spirited” here.
She had a “FAILED” radio program on Air American Radio in its incarnation before it went bankrupt, shed Al Franken’s high salary and reincarnated itself.
Just another Hollywood celeb LEFTIST with a poor dye job…..++++++++++In blogging matters, Flap is happy to be back after surgery although I am quite sore and energy is in short supply.
Thanks to all of my readers, here at Flapsblog and on Facebook/Twitter for their kind regards.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
Flap finds this whole situation in the Minnesota Senate race hilarious.
Itâ€™s all but official: A professional Democrat clown will join all the amateur ones already in the Senate.
Al Franken is going to Washington:
Democrat Al Franken will be declared the winner of the tight U.S. Senate contest in Minnesota, emerging from a ballot recount with a slim margin over Republican Norm Coleman, state officials said on Sunday.
But Coleman, the incumbent, has asked Minnesotaâ€™s supreme court to require that a few hundred additional absentee ballots be included in the recount â€” and he could then ask the court to investigate the contest all over again.
â€œAt the moment, Franken has a 225-vote lead,â€ after the weekend counting of what were deemed the last uncounted absentee ballots, said Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, a Democrat who oversaw the process.
Ritchie said unless the supreme court acts on Colemanâ€™s request and orders more ballots to be counted, he will reconvene the stateâ€™s Canvassing Board on Monday to certify Franken as the winner of the November 4 contest.
Remember the voters in Minnesota elected Jesse “The Body” Ventura to a disastrous term as their Governor.
Minnesota deserve who they vote for – what a joke!
As Barack Obama spiritual advisor Jeremiah Wright said, “The chickens are coming home to roost.”
First, it was Hot Rod Blagojevich and his corrupt appointment of Roland Burris to Obama’s U.S. Senate seat along with the interference by Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.
Second, the NEPOTISM of a possible Caroline Kennedy appointment to Hillary Clinton’s U.S. Senate Seat.
Third, the apparent win of Al Franken, who is an incompetent a pol as Jesse Ventura and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
And, now, there is the withdrawal of New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson from his Obama appointment to become Secretary of Commerce because of corruption charges.
But, what do you expect from a MSM who did not properly VETT the Democrat Party or Obama during the last election cycle.
Chickens coming home to roost, indeed.
Should Al Franken prevail in the U.S. Senate race in Minnesota, it will be the perfect storm for the national GOP.
There will be a TRIFECTA of Caroline Kennedy, Roland Burris and Al Franken.

Who cares if you have ONLY 41 votes to sustain a filibuster. This number will ONLY hold up for two years anyway with this trio.
