Al Franken, dumbass?

Filed under: — site admin @ 7:52 pm


Most normal people cringe when a politician tries to tell a joke. It doesn’t come natural to them, it’s not what they are trained to do and chances are that the only people laughing are the one’s whose jobs depend on it.

The same has to be said about comedians who decide to start talking about politics.

Al Franken was good on Saturday Night Live. I happily remember the Franken decade in the 1980’s. As a rule he made people laugh and he wrote some of the best sketches the show has ever had.

OK, he is a liberal. I can handle that. But somewhere along the way something sinister happened.

Now he is bitter – not a little but a lot. Franken has now added his name to the countless others who occupy the liberal hate machine. Franken is fine when he is dishing out the dirt to the likes of Bill O’Reilly or Rush Limbaurgh. So what! We all know he was a big fat liar! He was a politician, that’s what politicians do. Franken is a comedian and should stick to what he is good at.

Al Franken is a victim. He has been unwittingly duped into believing that he is profound. He is the Johnny Huang of the left. It started with his success as a comedian. He was pretty funny as the SNL one man satellite hook up guy and did a pretty good job in Trading Places. Once the success went to his head, he started to believe his own press. Others, with an agenda seized on this.

His latest project, a liberal talk radio station is likely to be yet another enormous failure and no doubt he and his friends will find some sinister right wing plot to blame for it. Lord knows it won’t be his fault. Why? Because to admit he is responsible is to open the floodgates of realization that everything he has ever believed in is a lie. His ego won’t allow it. This is the unfortunate fate of most liberals in America.

His books are little more than a series of rants and personal vendettas against successful media personalities and politicians with whom Franken has disagreements. I don’t agree with some of the decisions on American Idol, but am I driven to write a book entitled “Simon Callow is a Self Centred, Egotistical Asshole!” No of course not.

Franken is flat. Not funny or original but more like a child that can’t get his way. His infantile comments remind me of the grade school kid that picked up all his marbles and ran home or held his breath until he turned blue.

I understand Rush Limbaugh is writing a new book called “Al Franken Couldn’t Get Laid if His Life Depended on it".

  3. If you think that comedians should not cross into politics, then why are you in here. Im sure you made jokes before you even knew what politics were, and know your a politcal comedic. Dumbass.

  6. i am still waiting for someone, anyone to make a comment that doesn’t make them look like a dumbass. Franken is a walking propagandist for the left and if you doubt that you should take a look at where his income comes from. Just follow the money…

  7. I agree with the assertion that Franken is a Dumbass. Maybe the King of Dumbasses. Well no, attaturk at Risinghegemon.com is the biggest.

  8. OK, to the poster of this: You are the dumbass.
    Al Franken is a victim? No, he’s a fucking comedan, and what comedians do is make fun of people who do stupid things. Deal! Every fucking comedian is making fun of the stupid things conservatives are doing. Is every comedian a dumbass? All Franken is doing is making a living almost totally out of mocking Republicans. anyone could’ve done it, he just got to it first.
    Now get your fucking head out of your ass and into the real world, where you can’t just call someone a dumbass everytime they say something you disagree with.

  9. TheDude, you exemplify contradiction. You just managed to call someone a dumbass (because you disagree with them) for calling someone else a dumbass (because they disagree with them) for calling someone else a dumbass.
    We all have dumbass moments, but that one takes the cake.

    Congrats, Troll.

  10. To thedude the dumbass,
    If you have studied Al Franken France’s works, find him funny and lacking a political agenda then….you are truly a dumbass…to the point of self induced depravity.

  12. When Air America Radio first went on the air almost a year ago, it did so with six stations. Because of some cheating done by one of the outlets that carried them, which the mainline media carefully avoided reporting, they promptly lost two outlets in LA and Chicago and the right wing spin machine worked overtime gleefully predicting its demise and the universal hegemony (the only kind of situation they can tolerate) of right wing talk radio.

    The problem is, the right wing is not satisfied with the 98 and 99% returns that Stalin and his like used to report. They have to have the 100% that was the province of Saddam Hussein, or they feel ppl are pickin’ on em. So along comes the beginning of this thread. I don’t know when it was, but it was before 6/5/04, the posting date of the first response in this thread, so it was at a time when everyone who was anybody, right wingers all, was confidently predicting the prompt demise of AAR.

    Now its almost after the beginning of AAR, and they are at 49 stations nationwide, beating the right wing biggies in a few markets, and show absolutely no sign of any sort of demise, prompt or otherwise. Al Franken in on air until 2008, and then it is time for him to return to Minnesota and beat out Herb Coleman for his Senate seat.

    But just keep the thread up. The longer it stays there, and the longer AAR grows, the more damn foolish you look all the time. That’s just fine with me.

  13. Yeah he’s a big dunbass. You hit the nail right on the head. He’s a pathetic loser and he wants people to like him (Remember Stuart?) And he wants people to think he is smart (remember the way he made the map of all the states on SNL?) But he is really a big fat nerd. And a dumbass. He’s been teased all his life by people who are smarter than him and more attractive than him. This political career is his way to get payback.

  14. To the genius who started this thread:

    Clinton has sex in Oval office, gets impeached.

    Bush blatantly lies to the elected congress, the American people and U.S. allies, in order to force the invasion of Iraq. Tens of thousands of Iraqis die. More than the number of Iraqis killed by Saddam in recent years. Also, American military deaths in Iraq total 1862 and American military wounded total 13877.

    Dick Cheney’s former employers and close personal friends at Haliburton receive the lion’s share of Iraqi reconstruction contracts. Bush, his friends and senior members of his Administration are profiting from the war they manufactured. A blatant conflict of interest the likes of which one usually finds in backwater dictatorships.

    $9 billion is missing from the reconstruction fund in Iraq but I’m sure it will turn up. It was probably stolen by some of those Saudi-born terrorists the U.S. allowed to sneak into Iraq after the invasion. You know, the ones planting car bombs and killing American soldiers and Iraqis because Uncle Sam had no plan and no clue what to do once the U.S. was in Iraq

    I could go on (and on and on)…but surely you get the point. Franken talks about a right wing conspiracy? No kidding. That’s nothing new.

    A look at the recent history of American politics simply shows that Democrats and leftwing politicians lean towards booze, drugs and can’t keep their dick in their pants (Kennedy, Kennedy, Kennedy, Gary Hart, Clinton, etc.).

    Republicans and right wing fascists get their kicks from… illicit sex (Gingrich, Thurmond, Gerry Fallwell, etc.) - guess the left and right agree on something after all. The right are also know for their unabashed greed, inability to tell the truth, callous disregard for others and cheater mentality (Nixon, Reagan, Cheney, Bush, Bush, etc.).

    But ultimately, right wing fascists and the family values crowd are far more afraid of sex than they are about causing the deaths of others . That’s why Clinton got impeached and Bush is not in prison. That’s why the U.S. is in Iraq.

    And by the way, big business is overwhelmingly rightwing by its very nature…the Arhtur Andersen’s and Enron’s of this world don’t vote Democrat and they don’t like to follow the rules. Just like Nixon.

    You want to know who really runs the country? Who is robbing the people under the guise of Iraqi freedom? Who is using politics to manipulate the people for personal profit? And how many of these people are personally linked to the Bush family? Like you said, “follow the money".

    The right wing conspiracy is not a theory, it is a sad reality.

  15. Franken Shmanken…..life is funny…you are funny…just because you dont understand something doesnt make it more or less true…it only means you dont get it. NOW THATS FUNNY!

  16. Must you use that kind of language? Anyway, I agree that Franken is a dumbass; however, I disagree with the assertion that he is not funny. Al Franken provides me with literally hours of laughter every time he shows up on my TV or radio. In fact, all it takes is one look at his ugly mug to get me to start giggling, remembering some dumbass point he wrote or said.

  17. Al Franken is a big fat idiot! All the left has is name calling. I mean lets look @ the lefts base. Abortion Mongers, Aclu Followers, military haters, Recent non english speaking aliens(Illegal, & legal). Did I miss anyone, Oh yeh internationalist socialiast. If it wan’t for Abortion mongering & race baiting the Dmes would have no followers.
    I try to listen to Ass hole franken but the mindless shtick is too much to handle

  18. It’s laughable watching Franken try to Debate O’Reilly. Whether your conservative or liberal - hate one of them or both - O’Reilly has 10 times the intelligence of Franken. He’s totally out of his league. You might think O’Reilly is a smug arrogant ass (which he is) professional think tank speaker he is also. Putting O’Reilly and Franken on the same dias is like putting the New England Patriots against the neighborhood peewee football team.
