I guess he equates tenure on the bench (with a helluva a lot of overturned rulings) to be the "most experienced" ...
Hasn't he heard of Holmes, Brandeis, Cardoza, Frankfurter, Douglas, Brennan, and Marshall - just to name a few ???
They had vastly more life and career experience ...
Did Franken speak as a white male, questioning her about her belief that all white males should be castrated until they white population no longer is in control? As she said in her speech to the NOW group in Puerto Rico?
Senator Franken then proceeded to “honk” his nose and squirt water out of a fake flower on his lapel.
Well, the democrats wanted him, they’ve got him. It looks like the republicans are working to make him the face of his party. Good.
Amazingly, no one laughed at his joke.
This is just the start of Franken’s wisdom pouring out of his mouth. There’ll be lots more. We’ll think Biden is a Rhodes Scholar after a few more Franken comments.
Wtf!!! How did Franken get on the Judiciary Committee? He is the most junior senator and he sits on one of the most powerful committees in Congress??? I wonder if some of his colleagues are pissed off.

Did they make up that "peoples' proxy" role just for him?
IMHO, I think the MN voters actually elected Colemen.
It is not Franken who is the problem. It is the stupid voters of Minnesota who need to be taken to task.
No doubt - and I got relatives in MN who voted for him ... now searching for good sanatoriums for them :)
He gives new meaning to the phrase: “The Democrats are a bunch of jokers”.
Minneapolis Star Tribune had an orgasm when this clown was seated. Then they went back to bashing Cheney.
Good Gawd! Was calliope music playing while he prattled?
(that muffled gagging sound you hear is rising up from our Founding Fathers’ graves)
What’s up with the interruptions in Spanish?

Boy, oh boy— I sure hope that that speech is played in the hearing room!!!
Was he talking to a mirror?:)
