Ex-Comic Franken Wins Senate Endorsement, Former Funnyman Al Franken Gains Nod From Minnesota Democrats Despite Uproar Over Past Jokes – CBS News

"To the people of Minnesota, let me say this: I’m not a perfect person," said Franken, a former writer and performer for the "Saturday Night Live" TV comedy show. "I’m not going to pretend to have all the answers. But I’ll tell the truth, I will keep my spine, and I will work for you."

I can definitely identify.

"The Republicans don’t want me to be the nominee," Franken said. "But guess what? Thanks to you, I’m going to be, and guess what? I’m going to beat Norm Coleman by holding him accountable."

Hmmm…I’ve got a few people I feel like holding accountable as well.

Anyway, congrats to Al Franken!
