The detestable Al Franken

Apparently he had nasty comments to make to Mel Gibson, But the slur on his movie: "His last major movie role was in the 1995 disaster "Stuart Saves His Family," one of the worst of the countless knock-offs from "Saturday Night Live." It committed the ultimate Tinseltown sin: Beyond being terrible, it had terrible box office."

. . . was unwarranted. The movie is a small film, quite good and very droll. It had a sweetness that is unusual and it worked.

Franken, though, has proved himself a vitriolic pinhead. He has become a madman, but I can't despise all of his former work simply because, like Ezra Pound, he's gone crazy.
