This man wants to be a Senator????? Part 2
I think this is going to be a long running multi-parter.
Al Franken strikes again. This time in New York where he presumed to lecture Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on "judicial demeanor". The New York Post reports that Mr. Franken queried Justice Scalia about the "appropriateness" of hearing the case of someone he had gone hunting with (an obvious reference to the 2000 case Bush V. Gore). When the host of the event (Conversations on the Circle) opened the floor to questions, Franken got up and started lecturing about "judicial demeanor". Justice Scalia retorted (in what sounded to be a classic smack down) that "Demeanor is the wrong word. You mean ethics." He then went on further to explain that "It has never been the case where you recuse because of friendship."
In the quote of the article, Time Warner chairman Dick Parsons later told the Post: "Al was not quite ready for prime time."
So Al Franken thinks he has the gravitas to be a Senator? After this little show, I think Mr. Franken needs to go back to Civics class. My pre-teen has a better grasp on what politics is about than Al seems to have.....
