Skip to comments.Franken: ‘I’ve Just Been Impeccable’ As a Senator (VIDEO)
Posted on 05/04/2014 3:18:45 PM PDT by PoloSec
Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) said hes been just about perfect as a lawmaker in an interview broadcast Sunday on ABCs This Week.
The former Saturday Night Live comedian was asked whether he would have anything to satirize about himself were he still in the humor business, and he replied it would be difficult.
When I would make fun of politicians, it was only because they were screwing up in some way, he said. I dont think I could find anything, frankly.
Reporter Jeff Zeleny asked, Nothing?
Whoo, Franken said. That would be a really hard subject to satirize. Ive just been impeccable.
One of the 10 most liberal members of the U.S. Senate according to the National Journal, Franken noted, laughing, he may have made some small mistakes. Perhaps among them may be his full flip-flop on NSA surveillance.

“And, darn it, people like me.”
Maybe,but as a senator......not so much,I think.
If he gets voted out he is still set for life with all the goodies the “little people” only dream of.
Film At Eleven
That is his funniest line!
Impeccable? True, except for everything.
Did someone cut off his pecc?
Ya know,,,, I kinda got a kick outa Franken on SNL, and in Trading Places. He played the perfect a$$hole, and you just knew that he was playing himself. But he was pretty harmless in those roles. Now,,,, he just makes me feel ill.
He meant impeachable.
Still a comedian. Still not funny.
You can take the comedy out of the person but you can’t take the person out of comedy. He’s not lost his sense of humor. Maybe he’ll go back on the radio.
A peccary is a kind of pig. Maybe that’s what Al meant.
I’d like to hear him say: Officer...the cuffs are too tight.
He’s been a pecker.
If the MN voters were stupid enough to elect this idiot once, they’re stupid enough to elect him again.
i can’t stand that sick picture. It ought to be plastered all over his backwoods state until they are as sick of it as I am.
Funniest? I'd say *only* funny line.
O' Wait...he was serious ...
Epitomizes the phrase, “a legend in his own mind.”
Maybe hell go back on the radio.
Maybe he could get a job at Air America,
as a janitor.
Is AA still on the air? I think it ironic that a super liberal station would take the name of the CIA airline in Laos - Air America.
No, don’t believe they are, which is why he could
get a job with them.
I hate to agree with him, but he’s done damned-near nothing in office, which is in my mind, the mark of a great politician.
(Am I the only one who considers William Henry Harrison our greatest President?)
It is hard to be humble when you are a jackass.
‘Twas simply a misspelling...by a simpleton.
He meant “despicable”.
“If he gets voted out he is still set for life with all the goodies the little people only dream of.”
It’s a price I’m more than willing to pay if we can just retire Senator Franken! I’m still amazed he was ever elected in the first place, and some (myself included) doubt he ever actually was. Nevertheless, retiring him would go a long way toward making things right.
Having been to Minnesota and witnessed and experienced the highway crews working around traffic cones, he is a sexist pig. Only the men remove their shirt tops at 50 degree Fahrenheit temperatures. So there is a war on women after all.
