Dem are fightin' words!

"'neither a journalist nor a television news personality. He is not a well-respected voice in American politics; rather, he appears to be shrill and unstable. His views lack any serious depth or insight.'" --Foxnews about Al Franken

Franken responds with...

"'I normally prefer not to be out of the country on vacation when I'm sued. However, from everything I know about law regarding satire, I'm not worried..'"


"'As far as the personal attacks go,' Franken responded, 'when I read 'intoxicated or deranged' and 'shrill and unstable' in their complaint, I thought for a moment I was a Fox commentator.'"

But wait, there's more.

"'And by the way, a few months ago, I trademarked the word 'funny.' So when Fox calls me 'unfunny,' they're violating my trademark. I am seriously considering a countersuit.'"

Al Franken is my newest hero.

For a quick rundown on bozzy's heros...
(newest at the top)

Al Franken
Michael Moore
Jeanean Garafolo
and oh yeah,
Derek Jeter (he's sooooo hot!)

Derek Jeter? I meant to say Bo Derek. Fuck you.
