Apollo 4 on column of fire

Al Franken announces

Al Franken just announced his run for the Senate.

He’s a good person and I think he, like many, has learned a lot from the Iraq disaster. (I wish he’d quit saying that NCLB would be good if funded.)

(Also it was a remarkably subdued announcement, since it coincided with the last minutes of the radio show and involved a lot of talk about his mother’s last days and Paul Wellstone and so forth. Plus Franken tears up even more easily than GHWB.)
