If by the late winter or spring of ’23 it looks like Joe Biden‘s chances of being re-elected are somewhere between slim and shitty, and if, like me, you’re terrified of Kamala Harris somehow wrestling the 2024 Democratic Presidential nomination into her court and if you think Ritchie Torres is too young, the brilliant and semi-folksy Al Franken should step up to the plate. I’m 100% serious. Trump vs. Franken would be beautiful. Franken is frank, smart and sensible, and everyone knows that he was torpedoed out of his Senate seat over bullshit. Trump is a criminal sociopath and a destroyer of worlds.

Franken’s only problem is that he’s 5’6″ — too inches shorter than Michael Dukakis.
