This is what a rocker looks like – DEAL!
I wish I could work for KWAT instead I work for SQUAT! (Ha, Ha! Get it?)
The band developed quite a following throughout the upper Midwest. Sherwin’s career really took off, though, when he moved to the Twin Cities and formed “The Cotton Kings” after his hit song, “Cotton King” which he recorded in 1966. Since then, he’s recorded over 25 albums and traveled millions of miles making music. And talk about staying power; in over fifty years as an entertainer, Sherwin Linton has never missed a gig.
So why haven’t I heard of him? I guess I have to start drinking Diet Coke vodkas and hang out with all the rug heads at the Shrine Mosque to learn about Rock & Roll from now on.
I gotta get my hands on one of these . . .
The St. Paul Saints baseball team is again getting political with its new bobblehead promotion. After giving away presidential-themed souvenirs the last two elections and creating the Bobblefoot — a Larry Craig-inspired bathroom stall toy, complete with a tapping foot — the team is turning its attention to the still-unresolved Minnesota Senate race. The doll, 2,500 of which will be given away at the May 23 game against the Sioux Falls Canaries, will be a two-for-one: Al Franken’s face on one side and Norm Coleman’s on the other. The outfit: That of Sesame Street’s numerically obsessed vampire, The Count. (It’s dubbed the “Re-Count.”)
Of course they will be playing our team – go figure.
Once again, Lund proves to be the worst SD Blogger (besides Ellis and Sibson) – But he does have nice hair.
Doug’s portrayal of Franken on SNL is pretty accurate, but he doesn’t know a damn thing about him politically.
It’s sure going to be interesting to see if Al Franken has the rocky mountain oysters to continue being as outspoken on the floor of the United States Senate when actually confronting the sources of his irritation just across the aisle.
We’ll be watching, Al, to see if you’re good enough and you’re smart enough.
Just don’t turn your head too far to the left or we’ll lose the signal.
This is one of the main reasons we need Franken more then ever. Ever since Wellstone Mysteriously died in a plane crash we haven’t had a good old fashioned fanatic liberal from the Midwest representing us. Do I think ALL Dems need to be bleeding heart liberals? Not at all, but it’s good to have people like Franken and Dennis Kucinich to shake things up a bit. I think Franken will be a very outspoken and effective senator for Minnesota.
The thing I admire the most about Al is his ability to be serious about politics but still have a sense of humor and wit, and willing to defend it. Just because you are involved in serious political matters doesn’t mean you can’t be funny. I get my balls racked quite a bit about it. I think it is essential for people to have some cynicism when comes to politics, otherwise you’ll just end up being dissapointed in the end.
I suggest Lund reads Franken’s book, Lies and the Lying Liars who tell them, it is propably one of the most truthful political books about the lunacy of the right, and how their policies have blown up in our faces. The book has been praised for it’s abundance of FACTUAL information. It has been said that their has been only one point in the book partially disproven.
Maybe Lund shouldn’t read it, he did work for KELO-TV and I would hate for his fine reputation as a TV journalist covering stories about antique tractors and leftsa feeds to be tarnished.
