Minnesota Republicans, Rest Of Nation, Don't Find Al Franken Amusing
FUNNY FACE Franken Things are getting dirty in Minnesota Democratic Senate candidate Al Franken's fight to unseat acidhead incumbent Norm Coleman: Franken, a former Saturday Night Live writer and humorist (to some), is being attacked by the Minnesota Republican Party for a satirical, sexually risque piece he penned for Playboy back in 2000.
The story, titled "Porn-O-Rama!," details Franken's visit to a fictional sex institute, where he proceeds to engage in intercourse with all manner of machine and human. It's obviously a joke—he even talks about recommending that his 12-year-old son download some "effective visual aids" on the Internet when researching a report on bestiality—but that hasn't stopped the state's female GOP operatives from circulating a letter demanding that he apologize. Says the laughably straight-faced press release:
- Johnny Depp's Longtime Pal, Legendary Rock N' Roll Guitarist Jeff Beck Dead At 78
- Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Tell-All Netflix Series Delayed To 2023 After Attacks On ‘The Crown’
- Dianne Feinstein Refuses To Retire Before Her Senate Term Ends In 2024 Despite Colleagues Arguing She Is 'Mentally Unfit To Serve'
