    Franken votes against Bernanke confirmation | Polinaut | Minnesota Public Radio

    It's things like these I believe that makes Franken continue to surprise people. From all the media reports so far since he's taken office, I've heard nothing but good things. And I always happen to read stories from people who meet the senator in person and say he takes the time to listen to them and acts like a regular person.

    :thup: for Senator Franken.

    Because let's face it, He's Good Enough, He's Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Him. :razz:

    The people in his constituency would be better off with a 1/2 rotten avocado occupying his seat

    Even if every one of Frankin's votes are with the republicans they will still hate him becuase he is a Demoncrat.

    Pretty funny.

    Franken is a buck toothed moron and opportunist of the first order. This vote is meaningless--Bernanke was going to get confirmed anyway. But it allows him to look all populist and "for the people."
    What a faker. Only a noob like Dogshit would be taken in by this.
