Would The Senator from Minnesota Kick Some Ass?

Yes, yes he would.

Senator Al Franken (D – Minnesota) recently kicked some serious ass on the Senate floor while debating Sen. Jon Thune (R – S. Dakota). RawStory has some quotes:

WASHINGTON — In a few moments of heated but controlled anger on the Senate floor Monday evening, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) slammed Sen. John Thune (R-SD) and the GOP for essentially lying about the nature of the Democratic health care bill, suggesting they haven’t read it.

“We are entitled to our own opinions; we’re not entitled to our own facts,” Franken said. “Benefits kick in right away.”

My favorite part: “Facts are stubborn things.”

I have my own opinions on the healthcare bill, but as one Digg commenter mentioned regarding this video, “Franken is just goddamned awesome.”

Frankly, I had no doubt in my mind that Franken would make for a great Senator. We need more like him — on both sides of the aisle.
