Angry Mob confronts Senator Al Franken on Health Care

This is a WONDERFUL clip. I knew Al would be great at this kind of discussion. I listened to him talk with his self-proclaimed Dittohead friend for years. When watching the video, note how he addressed the right-wing talking points.

BTW, you will note the phrase "angry mob" I used that on purpose.
1) That is how the videographer described them, especially in the moments before he started filming.
2) As several people at boingboing pointed out this IS "Minnesota Nice" angry.

There are so many members of the bash Obama, Franken, democrats, liberals, progressives, a left that no longer exists, to my knowledge, that they should begin a political party based solely on the idea that a man such as he does not belong in the White House.
It doesn't matter what the angry mobs, nut cases with assault weapons, paid or volunteer protestors with supplied talking points because the complicit news media will give them credibility and legs.

Franken grasps exactly how complex this is. His ability to rationally pull the facts out, relate them to the anxieties of his hostile audience, and defuse the astroturf teabagger arguments makes you wonder why he isn't on "Meet the Press".

Well, I gues we know why he isn't: because he can do exactly that.
