The latest polling from Minnesota shows Al Franken falling far behind in his bid to upset Norm Coleman. It seems that his salacious writings, his record of lawbreaking and hypocrisy, and his negative tone is taking its toll. With that in mind, Franken has gotten his wife — whose struggle with alcohol make her a deeply sympathetic figure — to reintroduce him and testify to his character:
After all the complaints from the Left about Sarah Palin allegedly ‘using’ her family as a prop, this is a stunner. Franken must judge himself awfully far behind to resort to a tactic that they’ve angrily accused Republicans of employing.
Beyond that, the track record of candidates sending out their spouses to fight their battles doesn’t seem very encouraging. It didn’t work for John and Elizabeth Edwards. It didn’t work when former Congressman Don Sherwood’s wife sent a letter to constituents vouching for his character. It didn’t work when Kitty Dukakis stumped for her dispassionate husband.
If history is any guide, you can close the book on Senator Franken’s career before it starts.

Unfortunately, both parties have decimated the first principles that made this country great over the last 80+years. The Democratic Party, steeped in progressive, liberal philosophy, has consistently fought for consolidated, centralized political power at the expense of individual self-determination. In recent years, the GOP has been less rigorous in providing a robust loyal opposition. Ironically, even though recent elections have produced a plethora of courageous constitutionalists under the GOP banner, the party has failed to enact policies predicated on the venerable principles of liberty enshrined in a Libertarian worldview.
