The O'Franken Factor

Okay, my expectations were low to begin with, but the first show was abysmal. I've heard NPR fundraisers that were more exciting. Before today I never could have imagined a roomful of people in which Bob Kerrey was the least boring person present. I eventually had to tune out because it was depressing me. It wasn't merely boring in the benign, passive way in which a physics lecture is boring. Rather, it had that kind of bleak, hopeless, dispiriting boredom which, left unchecked, can lead one to despair. Something tells me Limbaugh and Hannity aren't exactly peeing in their pants.

Anyway, does anyone else think Al Franken sounds like Art Bell?
