It’s hard to believe that we’re talking about the possibility of the Supreme Court overturning Obamacare what with the law being crafted with the help of “leading legal scholars” on the left. Here’s one of those brilliant minds as singled out by Joe Biden:

Vice President Joe Biden described former Saturday Night Live comedian, Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., as a “leading legal scholar,” presumably in the Senate, today.

“He has been one of the leading legal scholars,” Biden said of Franken today, according to the pool report. He also said that Franken “is deadly serious” as a senator. He made the comments while recalling concerns that then-candidate Franken could not be taken seriously as a Senate candidate given his SNL work.

Yep, one of Joe Biden’s “leading legal scholars” among congressional Dems is this guy:



I’m not saying Biden is wrong though — maybe Al Franken is one of the Dems’ leading legal scholars. Judging from the laws they push I have little doubt.

    Yes, Doug, given that comparison, AF could well be the cream of the dem legal crop; even the chief partner in their fave law firm Dewey, Cheatam and Howe ! I think that would elevate Al to mega-moron !

    Found Tigger Wu a date!

    I can see the unsolicited email now: Wanna' see hot Capitol Hill all male furry action? Click Here and let the fur fly!

    When MN cones to its senses and bounces this furry @-hole out on his fuzzy ears, Al will rush out a tell all book detailing how he got high in the men's room at the Rotunda and laid taxi cab confession style on a daily basis.

    Send in the GSA clowns to tell us in 5 minutes or less how "smart" Plugs Biden is and then spend the rest of the week catching some rays in the Hawaii sun and surf on the taxpayer's dime. Al Franken, being the legal scholar that he is, should be able to defend that with no problem.

    This is just a clever move by Axelrod to distract the electorate from El Presidente's increasingly random mutterings.

    Scholarship in anything on the left is a low bar. Law, economics, science, history, math…

    [...] really, he actually seems to have said it. Hell, he may even believe it. Doug Powers reminds us of just who it is Sheriff Joe is talking about. What the hey, it’s funnier than anything Franken ever said. But [...]

    Occupier in Chief, in a post-inauguration press release, announce the nomination of Sen. Alf Franken to an open seat on U.S. Supreme Court.

    Back channel gossip has it that the OiC wanted to move Sen. Franken out of the Senate.

    Now, back to reality.

    I hoped that Rob Cornilles could have won that election. I knew him when I lived in Sherwood, but unfortunately, when one lives in Oregon, being conservative is like being soap in a sewer.

    Anyway, is Plugs' standard for 'legal scholar' as high as 'constitutional scholar'?

    That might explain his adoration for Sen. Franken.
