Al Franken Still Waiting for His Affirmation

In a race that is still too close to call, former SNL writer and comedian Al Franken is trailing by 206 votes in his bid to become the next Senator from Minnesota. I can’t help but remember Al Franken on Saturday Night Live at the end of 1979, proclaiming that the 1980s would be the “Al Franken Decade.” I also remember him in the role as Stuart Smalley doing his daily affirmation, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me." Minnesota may not make Al Franken’s decade despite voting for Barack Obama by a margin of 300,000 votes and that's ... okay.
