This man wants to be Senator (part 5)

Well we finally heard from Al Franken again. It has been a long time since we had an appearance by the man who would be Senator. This one comes to us courtesy of Scott at Powerline.

Senator (want-t0-be) Al was on the Today show with fellow talk show host Michael Smerconish on Friday.

Now Powerline, Expose the Left and Newsbusters are all focusing on Al's "screw-you" comment (directed toward Michael Smerconish) but the remark that I found to be stunning was this little throw-away from the very end of the interview (in response to Matt's question about what to do with the 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the US).

"We have got to make the Law reflect reality and reality reflect the law."

So I guess by this logic, if reality is that people are going to drive 100mph on the Interstate highways, we should change the law (the speed limit) and make driving 100mph on the Interstate legal? Or if criminals are shooting up Block E in Minneapolis, killing innocent bystanders, we should make that activity legal? Or if TSA screeners are using racial profiling to decide which travelers to screen then that's ok too Al? Is that what you really wanted to say Senator Al? Gee I guess that I am not smart enough, good enough or savvy enough to be a Senator like you Al.
