Oh, and one last thing and then I'll take your phone calls. Love this one. Al Franken, you know he moved back to Minnesota. He wanted to run for the U.S. Senate. Now, here's a guy who hates big companies. He hates these evil conservatives who just want to screw the little guy. "We need giant government to be able to take care of all of the poor little workers that are being screwed," right? He goes back to run for the U.S. Senate in Minnesota. He leaves New York. It's weird what a coincidence this was. He left in New York as the New York state workers' compensation board, fined his personal corporation $25,000 for failing to pay workmen's comp premiums from June 2002 to March 2005. He apparently wasn't paying his workmen's comp premiums during that time period for the little people and so they fined him, which is weird because it happened at the same time, you know, right before he left New York.
Now, he said at first he was going to investigate the judgment, "I'm going to investigate what happened. Pretty clear once I didn't pay workmen's comp premiums." Now because he's running for Senate he immediately changed that to say, "Well, I didn't even know about it. I didn't even know about it until it was reported in a paper and then I found out about it and I'm going to"... let me ask you this: What would this guy be saying if I didn't pay my workmen's comp premiums for five years? What would he be saying about me? Would he talk about how unbelievably heartless, bloodthirsty, how horrible of a human being I am? Look how I don't care about the little people? Do you think he would have done a whole show, maybe a whole week? Do you think I would have been a poster boy of a bad employer? Would I have been the poster boy for somebody that just will screw anybody just for a buck because that's the way all conservatives are? Would he condemn me for ducking the fine -- leaving the state and ducking the fine for three years? Would he do that?
By the way, he has a hard time saying any of these things, yet he still says them because he was working for Air America which took a loan, $500,000 loan that had been siphoned from money that was meant for a Bronx charity serving kids and senior citizens. So he worked for the evil corporation already that took money literally out of the mouths of senior citizens and kids and gave it to their employees. It was called Air America but, you know, hey, you watch Daddy do enough things wrong and pretty soon I guess you start doing them, too, huh?
