But He's Good On Health Care, Right?

For those liberals excited by Al Franken's narrow Senate win in Minnesota, savor this little taste of what's to come.

Franken's always been awful in this area, and it's obvious that he has little problem with shipping more cluster bombs and Apache helicopters to "our ally Israel." Oh sure, there's the scripted palaver about a two-state settlement (i.e. walled-off Palestinian Bantustans), and a few crocodile tears shed over Palestinian dead. But Franken's overall position is clear. Enjoy him, libs. He's what you wanted.
