Question: What’s funnier than an Al Franken joke?
Answer: Al Franken on the Senate Judiciary Committee!
Of course, it doesn’t take much to be funnier than an Al Franken joke, but a comedian instead of an attorney on the United States Senate Judiciary Committee? (See the Fort Worth Star-Telegram— “art” eventually imitated life as Franken once played a senator on that committee during a Saturday Night Live skit about the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Justice Clarence Thomas.)
Come to think of it, the bizarre is the new normal in the Age of Obama.
