Ron Coleman’s pretty good blog

Not the Al Franken decade?

Posted by Ron Coleman on May 2, 2008

The AP notices blogging:

From the kitchen table in his tranquil suburban neighborhood, Brodkorb for the last year has used his blog “Minnesota Democrats Exposed” to launch a furious political assault on Franken. He’s labeled the former comedian and liberal commentator a “mean-spirited and un-Minnesotan” candidate who’s running a “desperate and ridiculous” campaign.

That’s routine stuff in the world of political blogging, but in the last two months Brodkorb has

scored two direct hits that have the Franken campaign reeling. Brodkorb scooped the traditional media by detailing extensive bookkeeping problems in New York and California that ultimately prompted Franken, this week, to pay about $70,000 in back taxes to 17 states.

The stories have knocked Franken off balance as he prepares to take on Sen. Norm Coleman, in what’s expected to be one of the most expensive and toughest-fought U.S. Senate races this year.

Pretty cool, considering that Al Franken can be expected to get all the MSM boosting he can — even from oddball conservatives like Ben Stein who share his show biz milieu. (Tinsel runs thicker than water.)

    No worries for Franken, he is running for office in Minnesota and you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a liberal in this wonderful state. The commie left will vote for him because no matter what he did in the past, he isn’t an evil, knuckle-dragging conservative.

    When did people start taking Ben Stein seriously?
