The Next Black Al Franken
God knows we need more good humor in the U.S. Senate, and that’s obviously why he chose Al Franken to be Minnesota’s next Senator.
I'm pretty certain this is also why God recently ordered Gov. Blagojevich to pick Roland Burris as Illinois’ next Senator.
Have you noticed that Burris, like Franken, has a wonderful sense of humor? Well, he does, and with a little mentoring, he could be the next black Al Franken.
Unfortunately, both Franken and Burris are articulate, passionate, and burdened with superior values and intelligence. God, I pray that America and Big Media will overlook these shortcomings.
