Al Franken will have you ROFL in this clip from an Elizabeth Warren rally.

Transcript (as best as I could)

There are less than 3 weeks to this election.  
We need you out there until election day.
We need you out there all the time.
Many of you have jobs.
Many of you have families.
Ignore them.
Let me tell you something about kids,
they love when their parents are gone.
Now let me tell you something, an 8 year old can use a microwave.
Now let me tell you something else, an 8 year old can teach a 4 year old to use a microwave.
It 18 days.
Look that's why people go into politics in the first place, to get away from their families.  And you know how I know that, because when they resign they always say it is to spend more time with their families.

I'm not kidding though, Paul Wellstone said that politics isn't about power, politics isn't about money, politics is about improving people's lives.  That's what Elizabeth Warren wants to do.  That's why we are here, that's why every one of you is here, and that's why you are going to work every day until November 6th

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
