    Seeing Franken prance around in a comedic mimic of Mick Jagger is a refreshing change from the image of the chimp prancing around in a macho mimic of a real man.

    I didn’t know the story of Frankenstein included a seat in the United States senate. Wonder if Gene Wilder will again play the part of Frankenstein, when Hollywood tells the story.

    Many have made the transition from the entertainment industry to politics. All of them, like Reagan, got made fun of for it.

    Unfortunately that was as funny as Franken ever got. I used to cringe when he would come on SNL. One of the main reasons I quit watching it. He wasn’t funny, and the show wasn’t funny either. It wasn’t until Will Farrell and people who seemed to truly enjoy a good laugh came on that I enjoyed it again.
