Al Franken Rips 'Focus on the Family' Witness at DOMA Hearing: VIDEO


At today's DOMA hearing, Senator Al Franken took Thomas Minnery, Senior Vice President for Public Policy, Focus on the Family, to task for misusing an HHS study in his argument that children are better off with a mother and a father.

Said Franken: "I frankly really don't know how we can trust the rest of your testimony."

  1. Good intellect makes good comedy just as it makes good laws. Kudos to Al Franken for reinventing himself and for helping families like mine with his powerful intellect and hard work.

    Leahy is also an institution. These guys must have balls the size of grapefruits. Low hangers, too, I bet.

  2. And that my friends, is why I voted for Al Franken. It's why a majority (regardless of what former Senator Norm Coleman would have you believe) of us Minnesotans voted for him as well.
