Al Franken Issues Dire Warning Over Palin Endorsement Of GOP Rival?
Breitbart ^ | 8 Apr 2014 | MICHAEL PATRICK LEAHY

Posted on 04/08/2014 5:36:49 PM PDT by mandaladon

Senator Al Franken (D-MN) is having a bit of a freak out out over Sarah Palin's endorsement on Thursday of state senator Julianne Ortman, the leading candidate to win the Republican nomination for the United States Senate in Minnesota and challenge him in the November general election.

On Monday, Senator Franken sent out a dire email warning of Palin's influence on the election. He also could not resist attacking the Koch brothers as well. "Sarah Palin is now involved in the race — she just endorsed the Republican who, according to the Koch-affiliated poll, is only three points down," he wrote. "The Koch-backed attack group running ads against me just put out a new poll showing two of my Republican opponents within single digits — and, regardless of whether you trust their numbers, it's sure to egg on more right-wing attacks."

Because Al Franken is a walking, talking endorsement of the Athenian practice of Ostracism.

Ping to Sarah's Awesome List.

Anytime anyone says anything about Sarah (or anyone really) on our side being unelectable. Al Franken is my Number One Example that anyone can truly be elected to anything.

This man is a Senator for G-d's Sake

I think the MSM / journ-0-lists don’t often get too involved in House elections, because there are so many (535).

But there are only 33 Senate elections each time (typically about 10 or 12 which are actually contested) and they can make a pretty big impact when they shred a candidate.

They went after Murdoch here in Indiana like a pack of wolves.
(unfortunately he was ill prepared for it).

Any Senate candidate with Tea Party ties is gonna draw withering MSM attacks.

Conservative candidates need to learn how to handle a hostile media that’s looking for any soundbite they can cut and splice into an embarrassment.

He got into the Senate via ballot box fraud, and to begin with was unfit for any elected office or any other position of power. His embrace of Obamacare is going to push his campaign into a live wood chipper, and he did that himself.

> He also could not resist attacking the Koch brothers as well.

That’s because he’s a demagogue, from the Demagogic Party.

Thanks mandaladon.

Do you know if senators who loose elections are eligible for any “pension” benefits?

Yes any Senator who has been in office qualifies for a pension based on years of service.

A Senator with 5 years of service and is 62 qualifies for a pension which would be about $18,000 /yr which is not a huge number.

Sarah Is the greatest woman in the USA in our time. I have watched her like the hawk. She is selfless and a patriot. I saw her Dad. She carries his fierce patriotism. This country is in big trouble (we all know that). We must circle the Tea Party wagons and fight politically with NO DAMNED mercy. They fear us real bad.

I'll never get used to hearing that. It's like "Senator Bozo the Clown."

Then it's just as well that the original Bozo the Clown (Larry Harmon) didn't get anywhere when he ran for president in 1984, wearing his Bozo makeup and carrying a sign that said, "Put the real Bozo in the White House."

“she just endorsed the Republican who, according to the Koch-affiliated poll, is only three points down”

What is the point of that statement? I mean, if you say the opponent is “only three points down”, it seems like you want the rubes to think that the race is so close they must donate money real fast. Yet, he says it’s a “Koch-affiliated poll”, which, to a liberal, would mean the poll is biased and not to be taken seriously. Probably should have left that bit out if he wanted to scare up some cash.
