Franken To Bring The Funny Vermontward

by Philip Baruth

Green Mountain Daily (whose moles control a de facto majority of all Democratic party committees and sub-committees, and against whom resistance is futile) is reporting that Al Franken will be headlining this year’s Curtis Dinner in March. A brilliant choice, and an impressive get, for which we can thank Vermont’s senior Senator, who also roped Franken in for an event at the 2008 Democratic Convention. Not to mention Dead drummer Mickey Hart.

Had a few moments with Franken at that event out in Denver, and he was a prince of a guy. A little cautious, given that he was on the campaign trail for the first time, but still very funny, very sharp.

Now, though, he can say what he pleases. Which should be choice.
