Senator Al Franken: from SNL spoofer to State surveillance hawk

Al used to be a funny guy. Now, hes not.

Make no mistake about it, if Bush were president at the moment, Little Al would be attacking him mercilessly.

But with Obama in the White House, Al sings a different tune.

The NSA spying is A-OK. No problem.

I can assure you, this is not about spying on the American people.

Thanks, Al.

There are certain things that are appropriate for me to know that are not appropriate for the bad guys to know.

Al, you see, has been briefed. Hes bought into those high-level briefings. He now resides in a rarefied elite atmosphere. If Senator Al says NSA is good, it must be.

If you believe him, Ive got condos for sale on Jupiter.

Al even thinks its appropriate for the Justice Dept. to investigate Ed Snowden, the NSA leaker. Well sure, Als Mr. Establishment these days, and Snowden defected.

Al used to have a bullshit detector. Now, bullshit is detecting him as an easy mark.

Who in his right mind would believe a bunch of CIA and NSA guys sitting in a room explaining and justifying their own spying programs?

Is there any chance these cold-fish bureaucrats would do a mea culpa? Theyre looking for more budget dollars. Theyre looking to avoid any possible criticisms of their plots and operations. Theyre professionals paid to lie.

So theyre going to paint the war on terror in the most dire terms possible. Theyre going to tell stories and make it up. Theyre going to give gullible and grasping senators the impression theyre privy to real insider material.

Theyre going to say, Now youre in the Club. You know secrets. You know the truth the public must be protected from, because the public would be frightened. But you guys, you senators, you can handle the truth

Als sitting there in the room, and he poised half-way between buying what the intell boys are selling and knowing he wants to protect his president and his party.

Its a suckers game. Al has gone for it. Willingly.

On SNL, Al, as Stuart Smalley, the pathetic rainbow self-help psycho, used to look in the mirror and say, Im good enough, Im smart enough, and doggone it, people like me.

Well, now Al IS Stuart Smalley, but with a new tough-guy exterior. Hes a little man of steel, protecting the nation from the bad guys. Hes on the inside, with the big boys. And they like him.
