Al Franken: Racist

112 employees over the years and only one of them was black?

And I bet he wasn't even a "real black," either, but some sort of step-n-fetchit Simple Sambo like Lieutenant Governor of Maryland Michael Steele.

So, really, that's about one quarter of a real black. Meaning that Al Franken's black-hire rate is 1 out of 448, or just above 0.02%. Jesus, I bet the Klan has a better black-outreach program than that. The Klan must hire a few blacks, at least for ringers for its touch-football games against the Aryan Nation. (Oh, wait, it's racist to note that lithe black guys make really fast cornerbacks.)

Oh, and here's the kicker: he's suing the author of a book for revealing this. He's not claiming it's false, mind you; he seems to be making some sort of invasion-of-privacy beef.

Al Franken

Black folks just don't have the "necessities" to serve as his employees.

Thanks to Right Wing Howler.

Speaking of Cornerbacks... I'm a big fan of football jokes. (Which is weird, because I hate jokes per se. I guess I mean I like football witicisms.)

My favorite is about Jerome Bettis: "When you need one yard, he'll get you three. And when you need five yards... he'll get you three."

No offense to the Bus, and yeah, I know he breaks it for 12 or 15 every once in a while. But the basics of the joke are true. He's a dependable three yards.

But I heard one a couple of weeks ago, after a cornerback let an easy interception go right through his hands. "Well," the color man noted, "like they say, 'If he could catch, he'd be a receiever.'"

Great Al Franken Joke: I mean, it's about Al Franken. Al Franken himself has precious few jokes.

At some roast, someone said: "Al Franken is to comedy what Albert Einstein... is to comedy."

Pretty much sums it up.
