Biden: Al Franken is a 'leading legal scholar' byJoel Gehrke Commentary Staff Writer Share on email Share on print Follow on Twitter:
Vice President Joe Biden described former Saturday Night Live comedian, Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., as a "leading legal scholar," presumably in the Senate, today.
"He has been one of the leading legal scholars," Biden said of Franken today, according to the pool report. He also said that Franken "is deadly serious" as a senator. He made the comments while recalling concerns that then-candidate Franken could not be taken seriously as a Senate candidate given his SNL work.
Franken's comedic spirit got him in trouble on Washington. "This isn't Saturday Night Live, Al," Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had to remind the freshman senator after Franken made faces while McConnell spoke during the Supreme Court nomination process for Elena Kagan.
Kagan is now regarded as an able defender of Obamacare, which could be struck after oral arguments last month seemed to indicate that five of the nine justices regard it as unconstitutional.
That just about sums up the nature of this administration.
You know, by Plugs standards, diaper boy Franken really is a leading legal scholar!
franken is a sensationalist, and a media wallet sniffer. The picture you posted says sums it all up. Franken is a class clown vying for attention, and will be relegated to the dustbin of history.
Dang! The Mayans are right after all!
al Franken...bought and paid for by the Constitutional Party and those wonderful third party voters...thx again...
yes and biden is a rocket scientist. LOL a million times over.
This has to be the most surreal thing I read today. What is Joe smoking?
And 0bama appointing individuals to positions they have no experience in is acceptable. And 0bama appointing individuals to head agencies they detest is acceptable. The facilitation of America’s deconstruction has not gone unnoticed. Yeah, we’re onto your regime’s agenda, Biden. Who’s an example of a fine Representative, Maxine Waters?
He’s probably right...
The senate is filled with idiots.
I’m born, raised and still living in Massachusetts
and even i would not be caught dead visiting the state of Minnesota.
I have often wondered if there was not one normal human being living in that state.
And Michael Moore is a brain surgeon who makes movies as a hobby.
This is absolute proof that being Vice President is not worth a bucket of warm spit.
I don’t care who Romney put on the ticket because this is what it amounts to.
“This is absolute proof that being Vice President is not worth a bucket of warm spit.”
True, but Biden will go down as the dumbest VP in history.
On the other hand, if something happened to Obozo, Biden could, by mistake, be the savior of the country.
Sure, and Rosanne Barr is a great singer.
Best of all, you can be free to be whatever you want because now, your health care will be taken care of and if you can't pay for that house you promised to pay for it's not a problem; the affirmative action administration has strong-armed your lender into "forgiving" $100,000 of your mortgage, even though you promised to pay it. Why, these legislators aren't legal scholars....they're SUPERHEROS!!!!!
/s would be appropriate but /puke is MORE appropriate
I weep for our republic.
I weep for our republic.
I suppose this means that he's watched a few episodes of People's Court and Judge Judy.
Good Lord, Biden. Every time you open your mouth, something stupider comes out. When will you learn?
Considering how many of the laws are complete jokes, I’m not surprised. They even fit Franken well - even though they are jokes they are annoying and unfunny.
If he’s so smart, maybe he can tell all of us where it
s legal for felons to vote?
Actually a bucket of warm spit is arguably worth more than and bucket full of Bidens. The warm spit could be used to put out a small fire. I have yet to find a use for Biden other than as the class clown.
Did Biden have a stroke is is he smoking crack? To call Franken a legal scholar is patently ridiculous. What did Franken ever do that demonstrates legal scholarship?
