    Trust me... I don't understand it... you'd think they'd love the guy, but they don't.  He may only serve one term.

    Comments that say "GM workers should get retraining" without SPECIFIC DETAILS about those "new jobs" that never come are trollworthy

      I think that if Franken is a good senator, he will be able to overcome that and will win or lose his next election on the merits of his senate performance.

      As far as why they don't like him, I think that people resented that he moved here to run and don't see him as a Minnesotan even though he lived here as a child.   I think Franken's in-your-face style also clashes with the Scaninavian/Lutheran/Minnesota Nice brand of Democrat that is so predominent in Minnesota.
