Al Franken: Al's McConnell explains his stance on immigration, Biden's agenda, and the insurrection

Al's Mitch McConnell explains his stance on immigration, Biden's agenda, and the insurrection



Al's Mitch speaks out against his critics as he explains that he’s neither cynical nor out-of-touch with the “normal people” he represents. Also, how a January 6th commission would distract from Republicans' hard work of obstructing Biden's agenda.

1. That was good! Love the unintelligible part, when he's explaining

why he had initially said Trump was responsible for January 6.

Best imitation I've ever seen of Bitchy Mitchy - or ever hope to see!

5. I know, he belongs in the Senate where he did so much good. We need him now more than ever.

6. Al is a gifted mimic

And he can tear apart almost anyone if he wants to. He does an equally hilarious Bernie Sanders, by the way. He hasn’t forgotten a one of his former colleagues who urged him to resign after Roger Stone’s prank grew wings.

7. He really is incredibly smart - and multitalented

And we miss him terribly in the Senate for both reasons. Humor always helps.

8. Humor is what got Al thorough everything he was put through

He was deeply depressed after being hounded out of the Senate, and that lasted a good long while. Franni is every bit as furious with Al's former colleagues as she was right after it happened. I'm not even sure she would support Al's returning to the Senate even if he wanted to. She REALLY has no desire to interact with any of them. Al seemed to have let some distance come between the events of December, 2017 and how he feels now, although it would be wrong to say he has forgotten anything. He loved being a Senator, but I'm not sure he would be comfortable sharing the Senate floor with them again, even now. People whom he agreed with, worked with, called his brothers in arms against the Republican tide, were willing to ditch him for an organized rumor campaign because they found it expedient. That was a disillusioning so deep, it is difficult to imagine the impact it had. It left a deep-rooted cynicism that is difficult to expunge.

9. Wow. But you're absolutely right, that makes perfect sense.

I do remember that even those who should have supported him joined the call for his removal. I can't imagine what pressures came to bear, but I remember and none of us here, far from whatever was going on, could understand. To us, he was the best and the brightest - and he spoke so well for us. And it had been a hard won initial victory, he was prevented from assuming office for such a ridiculously long time. So I can understand the bitterness, it's good to see him speaking publicly once again. And it really is a tragedy, the country lost a lot when we lost such a talented voice.
