1153 - The morality of the Left

Al Franken, at the end of an article in today's Star-Tribune, on whether running for the Senate would force him to give up his radio show:

"I've still got to look at the rules," Franken said. "I've got to look at the [FCC's] rules and make sure I obey the letter of the law -- probably the spirit, too."

PROBABLY the spirit??!

This is Al Franken. He's the kind of guy that puts (in Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot) literally a hundred entries in the index saying something to the effect of "Idiocy, Rush Limbaugh and". He's a comedian before he's a politician. And also a nutbag, but if we actually went out and looked for nutbags, we'd have more than enough silliness on both sides to fill several books.

I recall that when Pat Buchanan ran for president, he had to give up his gig on CNN, something that was widely noted at the time. And, mark you, FCC jurisdiction over cable networks is a lot looser than, say, a network or a local TV/radio station gig. Methinks Al is being a bit coy when he says he has to look up the rules.

What does that have to do with the morality of the left?

For someone who's always howling about how the Right is always skirting the law and doing bad things, to come out and say he'd "probably" honor the intent of the law is just too hypocritical for words.

If something's gonna go over someone's head anyway, why bother trying to explain it to them?
