Comments: Hi, Iím Senator Al Franken Ė and if You Donít Like Me, Youíre a $%&! Jerk

If this young girl who wrote this nonsense about Al Franken had paid any attention, whatsoever, to the Senator-Elect's Campaign or the GOP slush-funded Election Contest presently underway; I'm sure she'd offer-up some kind of apology. Senator-Elect Franken ran a Campaign focused on the issues without low-road smearing and mud slinging. His opponent did not. Today, the GOP is in Court trying to undo Franken's 225 vote win.
The 3-Judge panel has shown compassion and mercy toward the witnesses the GOP paid to perjure themselves in court and got caught lying, on the stand. The witnesses get excused and the Ruling is called "Minnesota Nice". They should go to jail. Al Franken is a bright, intelligent, non-corrupt, shining example of a man who threw his hat into the ring and campaigned good and hard to become a Senator. If things stay on-the-level in Minnesota and the liars are politely thrown-out of Court; Franken should be sworn-in as Senator inside of a week or 10 days.
I was going to write this piece like Pam wrote the Franken piece. Pretend to be her and admit for her that she was just regurgitating what she had heard from those who don't like Al Franken.
She has shamed herself quite enough. Her College Diploma qualifies her to be a Journalist some day. But that day isn't going to be any time soon unless she rids her ink of venom, chooses some other color of ink besides yellow and adopts the "Six Honest Serving Men" of Rudyard Kipling to guide her from this moment forward.
