It would appear that a rather unexpected friendship has bloomed in our nations capital: Sen. Al Franken, a member of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, has found something of a kindred spirit in Kentuckys Rand Paul, the freshman senator who has plans to form a Senate Tea Party Caucus.
The two men get along so well, in fact, that Paul has asked Franken to act as his Democratic mentor. Franken spoke to Politico about the first time the two spoke:

Confusing to say the least.
Is this one of those “keep your enemies closer” kind of things?

Franken does kind of look like Aqua Budda. How did they scrub web of all those SNL skits of him dressed as Hari Krishna?

(For those who have fought for it, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.)
Not worried yet. However WILL be worried if Paul and Franken start an “Aqua Buddha Caucus”.

The very idea of Al Franken as a US Senator still makes me wanna barf...

and...what the hell does Paul or anyone need a “Democrat mentor” for?? Lessons on how to steal ballots? Cloward-Piven 101? Tips on trampling on the Constitution?
What crap. Rand Paul needs to do what he was elected to do not pal around with Steward Smalley.

Antonin Scalia is good friends with Ruth Bader Ginsberg. People are funny that way.

More Dirty City incest.
Hatch and Kennedy were a-hole buddies, too.
It appears that the apple does not fall far from the tree.
“Dr. Paul”: Dennis the Menace for VP.
Rand (New hero): Uber LIBERAL for mentor.
I guess we all should not be real surprised. Since all names mentioned above ARE LIBERALS!

Boy didn’t take long for that gyro to bust loose.
I hope it’s a trick.

Maybe Franken invited him as his sitting-buddy next week? If they do this thing next week I’m going to be sooooo pissed.
That’s what Bill Brennan did for Harry Blackmun. Next thing you know, we had Roe v. Wade.

Yep, only a RINO would choose to hang with a guy who stole his Senate seat and helped provide the margin for Obama care. But why should anyone be shocked that a guy who ran to be on MS-NBC the morning after winning the GOP primary would be like that.

Maybe Rand Paul can get Al Franken to read F.A. Hayek and thereby convert him to sanity.

Maybe, if Franken doesn’t already know we’re on the road to serfdom and figures he’s gonna live in the manor house.

Not really. Every freshman Senator gets one GOP and one democratic mentor. Any newly-elected Republican to the U.S. Senate you can name has a "mentor" that is a Democrat.
