The United States senator who finally gave the Democratic Party the 60 votes they needed to keep the GOP from filibustering the country to a standstill.
Jon Stewart: "(Senator Arlen) Specter's move (switching political parties) puts the Democrats within a hair's breath of an unfilibusterable 60 seat Senate majority.

So now it appears the Senate's balance of power--in many respects, the very future of our nation--is in the hands of Al Franken."

Get a Al Franken mug for your father Bob.
A former SNL writer, now a liberal author famous for his heartfelt honesty, sparkling wit, disturbingly handsome face (in my opinion), and charming--if sometimes a bit overbearing--conduct during battles with Bill O'Reilly and the rest of the uber-conservative crew.
"Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: Precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from."

"If you listen to a lot of conservatives, they'll tell you that the difference between
them and us is that conservatives love America and liberals hate America.... They don't
get it. We love America just as much as they do. But in a different Way. You see, they
love America the way a 4-year-old loves her Mommy. Liberals love America like grown-ups.

To a 4-year-old, everything Mommy does is wonderful and anyone who criticizes Mommy is
bad. Grown-up love means actually understanding what you love, taking the good with the bad,
and helping your loved one grow. Love takes attention and work and is the best thing in the world."

Get a Al Franken mug for your mother-in-law Nathalie.
A former writer for Saturday Night Live, now better known as a liberal activist and comedy writer. Has incited the wrath of many a conservative mainly for cheerfully shoving their own slimeball tactics back in their face. Currently getting very rich off a stupid lawsuit filed by Fox News and dismissed by a very annoyed judge.
"The nice thing about Al Franken is that he doesn't take himself anywhere near as seriously as Michael Moore."

Get a Al Franken mug for your Aunt Zora.
Defiantly not the liberal version of Rush Limbaugh. Al Franken tells the truth and always makes a correction if he makes a mistake, no matter how minor. Rush Limbaugh deliberately lies, but Republicans have to lie because if they told the truth no one except the wealthiest 2% of the population that benefit from their policies would vote for them. Al Franken is a centrist and the most conservative host on the liberal Air America Radio network.
Al Franken is going to be a senator from Minnesota after 2008.

To grab a woman’s breasts while she is sleeping or passed out and have a pal take the picture without consent.
β€œStewart was on a plane and a woman was passed out. Stewart asked his pal with the camera to Al Franken with him.”

Although one of the more tolerable uber-liberals in the media today, he remains a somewhat obnoxious man. Former SNL writer, now a political satirist and host on 'Air America,' which is a self proclaimed leftist radio station.

1. To suceed in becoming wealthy without talent or charisma

2. To hide a political agenda in the guise of lame comedy and to use large crowds as a cloak for cowardice.
1. "Man, that Paris Hilton is household news and in the grand scheme of things, she really Al Frankened her way to the top!"

2. "She called me to come and play poker, but she really wanted to talk about our relationship - she pulled a Franken on me!"
