Al Franken Ruins Senate For John McCain

Senator Al Franken (D-MN), presiding over the Senate, shot down a request by Joe Lieberman (MISERABLE PRICK-CT) for an extra minute of speechifying last night, and John McCain (R-AZ) got VERY UPSET, because he had never seen something like that before and it made him worried for “the comity of the Senate.” It’s like some ’80s comedy where the brash young outsider comes in to shake things up and all the stuffy establishment types are horrified, except in this case the brash young outsider is 58 years old, and the things the establishment types are trying to defend aren’t funny at all. Although “comity of the Senate” is a pretty good one.
