I'm a professional writer, and have been since I was sixteen years old. Over the years, I've written comic books, novels, short-stories, humor, book reviews, fake news articles, screenplays, and television shows. I'm the proud dad of two daughters, Cara and Rachel. You'll be hearing about them again, I'm sure. Rachel and I live in Los Angeles, in the San Fernando Valley. Cara lives in the Washington, D.C. area.
Well, his opponent is comedian Al Franken...
Franken has a real handicap in this race...other than running against an extremely well-funded incumbent, I mean. He's had to avoid being funny in his campaign and ads for fear that voters might get the idea this is all some kind of comedy stunt a la Stephen Colbert or Pat Paulsen. (Many people actually think that because someone writes comedy, he must be a happy-go-lucky chap who does nothing but laugh at everything and have fun all day. People can be idiots.) Bizarrely, Franken can't go on Colbert or The Daily Show because being funny would hurt him, while being funny on those shows helps other politicans.
Anyway, here's one ad with Franken himself that's a little bit lighter in tone:
