    Al Franken Body Slammed A Heckler!

    http://www.nypost.com/news/nationalnews/16692.htm

    This guy is a freaking psycho!!

    Hey Franken, does the heckler not have the right to speak freely? Or are you gonna go hulkamania on every heckler excersizing their freedom of speach?

    This guy must be going through some sort of mid-life crisis or something.

    I'm wondering if that's even legal. Anywho, the guy's not exactly a proponent of the whole anti-his opinion type of speech, so it's no big surprise. Also, he's an entertainer; he must know that such an action would draw plenty of attention.

    Al's new book:

    Hecklers and the Heckling Hecklers Who Tackle Them: An Unbalanced Look From The Ground."

    /Me wonders how hard Hellfire would be cheering if Rush Limbaugh had punched a liberal heckler in the face at the RNC

    He almost got in a fight with Sean Hannity at some press party or something. But o well, he's a "comedian" afterall.

    I wouldn't be cheering I'd say "what the hell Rush? You popping pills again? Get a grip."

    Seriously, this kind of behavior is absurd.

    The guy has no self control. He can't take the heat in arguments without resorting to violence. What a loon.

    Sorry to break it to you, but most extremist political entertainers are "loons".

    OK, cool. That's the most level-headed thing I've ever seen you write. :D

    I imagine the heckler is going to make quite a bit of money off of this whole thing . . . How long before he shows up in the police station with some bandages on and some charges to press against the loose cannon? :xflash:

    Most extremist political entertainers dont go around body slamming people and instigating fights with their political opponents.

    Charges would probably make Franken famous though. His sort of audience would probably love him for it. It could be a win-win situation for both, in a sense.

    Yeah, but it's just a physical extension of the verbal senselessness they spew most of the time.

    Plum, I realize you're a liberal and you probably really like Al Franken, but seriously, there comes a time when people just go too far. And this is one of them. Body slamming a heckler... the guy needs theropy. You would never see Sean Hannity or other level headed individuals do that. A guy who body slams hecklers just cant be taken seriously.

    Frankly Hellfire, I don't respect the guy in the slightest. That's my policy with pretty much all of the political commentators, such as Limbaugh, Franken, Moore, Coulter, etc. I already questioned the legality of it, so I thought I was at least semi-clear.

    Oh. My. God. I actually agree with Hellfire.

    It must be a chilly day in Hell.

    Al did not almost get in a fight with hannity, He simply pointed out biases in his reporting and really drilled them in until hannity threatned als life, afterwhich he left.

    Al was a great wrestler in high school, so his natural instinct kicked in. Im sure he didn't merely tackle him because he disagreed with his statement. Thats illegal and Al knows not to do such a stupid thing.

    Al Franken did NOT bodyslam anybody. That's a load of BS from the Washington Post, which is one of many print equivalents of Fox News. Here's what really happened:"
