Al Franken loses it

From Newsmax:

Air America star Al Franken had a meltdown Friday night while accepting the Freedom of Speech Award at Talkers Magazine's New Media Seminar, before being forced to leave the stage by the event's sponsor.

The liberal yakker launched into a 20-minute tirade against his conservative colleagues, taking shots at Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and Bill Bennett, according to WWRL host Steve Malzberg, who witnessed the ugly outburst...

After blasting the top talent in his industry, Franken took on the war in Iraq - dissecting a report on a visit to the troops by fellow talk host Rusty Humphries.

As the Air America host droned on, the audience grew restless, with some shouting for Franken to "hurry up." ...

Finally, Talkers publisher Michael Harrison gave Franken the hook...Before he departed, however, Franken lept into his own peroration about visiting the troops - appearing to sob as he detailed their injuries.

Like most snakes the body continues to writhe long after the brain is gone.
