Al Franken v. John Thune
Al Franken wanders on to the Senate floor and doesn’t understand the end of a speech John Thune is giving, and then rtakes the floor and misstates Thune’s point. Thune attempts to respond and Franken won’t let him. Sherrod brown jumps up to divert attention from Franken’s mistake, and will not yield to Thune either. Thune leaves the floor, and Al continues to embarrass himself by arguing that the “large majority” of the Obamacare benefits kick in immediately –a preposterous position.
Obamacare’s public option/Medicare buy-in went down this afternoon, but you should still be very worried about any bill in part crafted by and supported by Al Franken.
