Franken Answers Tea Bagger Questions on Health Care Reform At State Fair

I think that Frank Pallone and Rush Holt can learn a few things from Minnesota Senator Al Franken when it comes to discussing health care reform with their constituents at town hall meetings. Franken did an outstanding job at turning the converstion back on health care reform protesters.

The video was recorded by a Mr. Dusty Rice at the Minnesoata State Fair and the other day. Here’s what he had to say about the expirence:

I got to witness something really special. About a dozen tea party activists had staked out Sen. Al Franken’s booth, and confronted him loudly when he arrived. But within minutes, he’d turned an unruly crowd into a productive conversation on health care. The discussion went from insurance reform, to the public option, to veterans benefits, to cap and trade. He made a few laugh and even told a touching story that moved a few to tears. A whole lot of common ground was found.

The Jesse Ventura Smackdown Interview with Hannity

If you haven’t scene this awesome smackdown of Sean Hannity by the one and only Jesse ” The Body” Ventura, former Governor of Minnesota, then you are in for a real treat.

Ventura puts Hannity in his place over a number of issues, from the “Obama deficit”, 9/11 and Monica Lewinsky.

Hannity literally does not know where to go and he looks foolish trying to defend President Bush and laughing at the notion hat Barack Obama is a very intelligent man because he can read off a teleprompter- something that Hannity does everyday.
