Ben Stein Backs Franken (Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?)
Posted by bmac on October 20, 2007
I thought Stein was a Republican. And I thought he was smart. Apparently he has entered senility. Republican or Democrat, what on earth would make someone with an I.Q. over 40 vote for that troll?
What the fuck has Al Franken ever NOT failed at? He was on the payroll at SNL for twenty years while stellar talent like Rob Scheider, Tim Meadows, and Joe Piscopo sailed past him. His Stuart Smalley movie was the least succesful of any SNL movie ever, and that includes “A Night At The Roxbury,” and “It’s Pat!”
You can tell Franken is one of those comedians that is really hateful and angry, and that comes through because he’s not remotely funny, and it really shows in his politics.
His tenure at Air America was (is?) a joke. They used to play 1 or 2 hours of his show on the Sundance Channel, and I checked it out a couple times out of curiosity. Politics aside, it was so bad, I don’t even have the words to describe it. The NPR crop report is more entertaining. I’m baffled why anyone would pay that career loser, let alone back his run foe Senate.
Stein, you’re a dolt.
