I am watching ( A REPLAY) of Al at 9:00 PM ( July 25, 2012) give a speech on the Senate Floor today. (via CSPAN)
He was eulogizing Tom Davis his old partner, his old partner at SNL and at our local comedy club at the U fifty years ago.
I am crying.
AND ME, I’M AL FRANKEN.
It was in the early days of SNL that you might have heard this.
I knew immediately what that sonofabitch was doing.
But so did everyone else.
And it worked!
Well Davis was his old partner.
And Tom Davis just died of cancer and Al thought:
I am going to speak of my best friend’s death on the floor of the United States Senate!
And Al did.
And I love Al.
And I am awed by Al.
And I shall grieve the death of Tom Davis.
A wonderful eulogy. For sure!
That’s all I got right now!
If Paul Wellstone had not died, not 20 miles from where I write this in 2002 October, Al would never have run for the US Senate.
Paul was my god and now Al is my Saint!
That’s my Senator along with Senator Amy;
MAY THEY REIGN FOREVER! HA
