"Al Franken had 14 Harvard researchers working on his best-selling new book, "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them." With this much manpower, he should have been able to produce a work of scholarship worthy of Gunnar Myrdal or Edward O. Wilson, instead of a loosely knit collection of anecdotes padded out with cartoons. But never mind -- what I can't figure out is why I never heard from Franken's extensive research staff.
But after a day of thought, I chose to turn him down. Doing physical violence to someone for no good reason except his insipidness wouldn't just be wrong; if it were established as a general principle, it would have led to someone pummeling Al Franken most days of the week.
