If Anyone Knows About Death…

Al Frankenstein was on Letterman recently and he was talking about the current problems that the Republicans are having. In case you do not know who this “man” is (and you might not seeing how few people listen to him) he was a character on Saturday Night Live. They billed him as a comedian but since comedians are supposed to be funny I will stick with character. Well here is what my next nominee for Jackass of the Month had to say:

Al Franken: “Right. So they wanted to smear the guy who came back with the report, and so they out his wife and said she sent him there. This is essentially, you know, George H.W. Bush, the President’s father, was the head of the CIA and he has said that outing a CIA agent is treason.”

Letterman: “It is treason, yes.”

Franken: “And so basically, what it looks like is going to happen is that Libby and Karl Rove are going to be executed.”

[audience laughter over Letterman’s response]

Letterman, in mock indignation: “What? What! Really?”

Franken cautioned: “Yeah. And I don’t know how I feel about it because I’m basically against the death penalty, but they are going to be executed it looks like.”

A bit later:

Letterman quipped: “The real crime is that there’s an adult man walking around in the current administration named Scooter. I mean, we can agree on that, right?” [Audience laughter]

Franken combined the liberal spin on the case with some humor: “That, but sooner or later he’ll be executed, so that, and you worry about because the President at some, he said right away when Novak outed the CIA agent, Plame, said ‘I want to get to the bottom of this.’ Well now Karl Rove is his right-hand man. Did he ask Karl? Did Karl lie to him? If so, we know he should have fired Karl by now so that, and did Karl tell the truth to him? In that case the President — and I think, by the way, that we should never ever, ever, ever execute a sitting President.” [Audience laughter]

I expect this from Franken. He is not relevant to anything that is taking place in America and since no one listens to his program he has to go on shows like Letterman to be noticed. At first I was disturbed that the audience was applauding about the execution remarks but then I read that everyone in the audience must laugh (they have microphones above the people) or they have to leave. That makes sense because Letterman is no more funny that Frankenstein.

I guess it was fairly appropriate for Frankenstein to make the remarks about people dying. With his lack of talent and the show he does, he must know what it is like to die a slow death.

The article says Franken was joking but since he is never funny, how could anyone tell?
