C'mon Al, please lighten up. I saw you on TV last night and I felt sad. That's something I thought I would never say about Al Frankin: the man with the grin, the chuckle and the dead aim at the overblown. Yes Al, we all know you are a SENATOR now, and it is SERIOUS work. But does it have to be a metamorphous? If so, this is one in reverse: the beautiful butterfly that you were on Saturday Night Live has become the grey caterpiller we don't pay attention to.
When asked to comment on the Presidential candidacy of Donald Trump, I sat up. "If anyone can handle this one, it's our Al," I grinned. Instead, he went all sour. "I am a SENATOR now." He looked like he would go home and burn all of his copies of Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot.
They say Washington ruins everyone. It does take its toll.
