What is Al Celebrating?

On a recent visit to alfrankenweb.com, where you can view the latest Franken droppings,there was a headline titled:

October 14. Happy 1st. Today is the anniversary of the O'Reilly lawsuit. Celebrate!

Those wishing to participate in the festivities could simply "click" on the headline and be taken to 'thesmokinggun' site and see transcripts of the Andrea Mackris complaint against Bill O'Reilly.

What a celebration! and just as I am recovering from Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, Franken's friends have something new to celebrate.

Usually, though, people celebrate when they have good news. At least that's what I thought normal people do.

So what good news could Al possibly be celebrating these days?

That Air America was embroiled in a financial scandal involving taking money from a kids charity?

That AA's snails pace growth is getting them nowhere and can't generate revenue?

That Katherine Lanpher, Al's co-host, left the show to write a memoir of her move from Minnesota to New York? (sounds like a chart-burning blockbuster to me)

Is he celebrating the release of my upcoming book that will expose him as a smear merchant, character assassin, and major fraud?

I'm not sure what he's so happy about, but it seems that because Al has nothing positive to celebrate he'd rather distract and point to somebody else, and that somebody else is still America's #1 cable news host.

Somehow, I don't believe that Franken's terribly terrified at the prospect of an unknown's book exposing him to be a liar. You give yourself way to much credit if you think Franken's worried about your work.

You are coorect that I am an unknown, but truths are truths and lies are lies, regardless if the exposer is a celebrity or an unknown. More worrisome, though, I think are Franken's supporters who believe Franken can do no wrong. Don't you think that some people might feel foolish to continue giving a man, exposed as a fraud, their unconditional support? Would the exposes have more credibilty if a celebrity wrote the book?
