Douchebag of the Week

You are a douchebag!This week’s douchebag isn’t a politician, though he seeks to be.  His last job was as a radio talk show host, though only a few ever actually heard him to prove that.  Before that he was supposed to be comedian, though he hasn’t been funny in 30 years, unless you are of the mindset that Stuart Smalley was funny, in which case you were probably one of the few who listened to his radio show.  That’s right, this week’s Douchebag of the Week winner is wanna be Senator from Minnesota, Al Franken.

While Franken’s insensitivity and hypocrisy on such things as race are well documented, his douchebaggery extends beyond such things into the area of politics. It isn’t what he believes in that makes him a douchebag, people are free to be wrong and anti-freedom and anti-personal responsibility all they want, it’s the fact that he doesn’t extend the courtesy to exists without agreeing with him to others.

Franken was recently on the campus of Carlton College in Northfield, Minnesota begging for votes and attention.  After the event he was talking with students when he discovered one of them was – gasp! – a College Republican.

Franken started badgering the kid, then refused to shake the kid’s extended hand when Franken’s handlers came over to break up the confrontation before he made a bigger ass out of himself.

Fritz (the evil Republican) told me Monday that he then stuck out his hand to shake Franken’s. “Well, at least it’s nice to meet you,” the GOPer said he told Franken, who reportedly replied, I can’t say the same.

There was no handshake, said Fritz.

And just you don’t get all bent out of shape about this story coming from the word of a political opponent:

Fritz’s version of the encounter was backed up by Pablo Kenney, prez of the Carleton Dems.

So, for being a complete ass to a kid who dared disagree with you and getting so upset by his mere existence that you couldn’t be bothered to shake the kid’s hand, you, Al Franken, are our Douchebag of the Week!  Congratulations, and we hope you lose bad in the primary.
