Al Franken's Rerun Rove and Libby Execution Remark Draws Laughter From Lauer
Posted by Geoffrey Dickens on October 25, 2005 - 11:45.
On Today, at 8:52am Al Franken was on to promote his new book The Truth and repeated his twisted joke from Friday's Letterman in which he predicted that Rove and Libby will be executed for treason.

Franken's "joke," drew laughter from Matt Lauer and the rest of the Today show studio. The following is just a portion of this morning's interview:
Matt Lauer: "All right, Karl Rove and Scooter Libby what’s their future? What’s your prediction in terms of indictments? Yes or no?"
Franken: "Oh they, they’ll be indicted. I, I am absolutely sure and this is about, of course, the war in Iraq really. It’s about the justification for the war and smearing Joe Wilson by outing his wife who’s a CIA agent. George H.W. Bush, the President’s father, said, as, when he was head of the CIA, that outing a CIA agent is treason. I, I agree. So I think that Rove and Libby will be executed." Lauer laughed along with those in the studio.

Of course Al Franken will not find or point out the federal code of US Constitution Article to back up his claim. And of course, the lemmings and trained seals in the audience clap on cue. NBC was real news? When was this? Lauer you get the Goebbels Award for being a complete and utter tool. You and the morons at CNN must have gone to the same Commie Training school.

And Al, indictments mean, NOTHING. Ask OJ or MJ on indictments. How about Bill Clinton and his perjury and various offenses? Presumption of guilt, does not a verdict make.....


Video excerpt: Real or Windows Media
A complete transcript of the rest of the interview segment, starting with Lauer's reaction to Franken's "execution" line:
Lauer laughing along with others in the studio: "That aside. Given the fact it has a lot to do with the mood in this country and the, and the thought process in this country prior to the war in Iraq how much do you think the average American cares about this story right now? We had James Carville on this morning, said about a two on a scale of 1 to 10. Laura Ingraham said minus one. What do you think?"
Franken: "I think Laura Ingraham is an idiot."

And of course, Al is a gentleman to the Nth. Everyone is an idiot except, you? Screw off Franken, you worthless sack of crap. Franken, you look like the moron that got wedgied in high school. Prove Laura is an idiot. Prove Rush is an idiot. Prove they and their arguments are invalid. Otherwise, shut your stupid freakin mouth.

Lauer chuckling: "Well you don’t have a lot of nice things about a lot of conservatives."
Franken: "Well no but minus, I mean people, I think..."
Lauer: "But how much do you think people care about it?"
Franken: "I think people care, I think people care that people close to the President and the Vice President are, are outing CIA agents and lying and lying before, I think this is, and, and when they get indicted and when people start looking at this it’s gonna be very, very big."
Earlier in the interview Franken drew laughs from in studio when he called the President "incompetent."

And cue the clapping seals, monkeys, and lemmings. Brainless wastes of flesh.

Taking it from the top of the interview here is the conversation:
Lauer gladly reciting the title of Franken's first book: "The liberal voice of Al Franken first came calling when he declared Rush Limbaugh is A Big Fat Idiot, now the political satirist turned radio talk show host has a new book on the shelf simply titled, The Truth With Jokes. Al Franken, good morning. Just a little light reading? That, that by the way in the New York Times, that costs a fortune, that ad."

Lauer is kissing up to get a piece of the revenues. Oh wait, what revenues! Good luck selling that bridge in NY, you sheister.

Al Franken: "Yes, you know that shows exactly how much faith they have in this book."
Lauer: "Yeah?"
[Graphic read: "Laughs From the Left"]
Franken: "Oh yeah."
Lauer: "How are, how are, how are conservatives gonna feel about this book?"
Franken: "They will love it!"
Lauer: "Yeah, you think so?"
Franken: "Yeah well what’s, see the book is prescient. When I was writing the book there were, there were a number of people in this country who thought the President was competent."
[Laughter in the studio]
Franken: "And now, now, now, now we know he’s not and that he is corrupt too so that’s, yeah, yeah?"

Al goes off his meds. Lauer sheepishly nods and agrees....

At the end of the interview Franken couldn't resist joining the rest of the left and many in the media in their ghoulish countdown to 2000 deaths.
Lauer: "You don’t have a solution for the problem we’re in Iraq right now. That fair to say?"
Franken: "That’s very fair to say. We do this on my show, I have a three hour show everyday on Air America and we talk to conservatives and we talk to liberals and we talk to people trying to figure out, ‘cause we’ve been put in a terrible situation there. And we’ve been put in there by this President and they won’t tell us the truth. That’s the problem is that you can’t rely on these guys for the truth. And that’s what’s so important. This is why this isn’t a negative one. This was about trying to smear a guy who is saying they, they didn’t try to buy nuclear material from, from Niger, you’re lying. They lied. So I think that’s kind of important and you can ask the families of the 2000 troops that died how important that is."

And you know the truth? You can tell who lies and who does not. Al, you could care less about the 2000 troops who died. I bet you're gratifying yourself thinking about their deaths. You scum, you fatmouth, you worthless sack of whale feces....

UPDATE 12:59 from Rich Noyes: Matt Lauer just smiled and laughed when Al Franken called for the execution of Karl Rove and Lewis Libby. But a few weeks ago when Pat Robertson called for the assasination of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, an anti-American dictator who has cozied up with Iran’s ayatollahs and Cuba’s communists, Today was outraged enough to lead the show with Robertson’s supposed transgression.
“We fine broadcasters for using four-letter words, we say that’s offensive. So is it offensive to call for the assassination of a world leader?” NBC’s Matt Lauer castigated back on August 23. But a left-wing host calls for the execution of top ranking officials of the executive branch — that’s just a joke, right? Or perhaps Today’s indignant reaction to Pat Robertson was, shall we say, a little “staged.”
Aren't double standards wonderful?

Al Franken gives up on words
from Jacob Williams' Blog on October 25, 2005 - 13:03
After years of trying to persuade anger sensible americans with his dim wit and half-truths, Al Franken has given up on words and has decided that his only chance for success is to kill them. Apparently execution is the solution he has for some admini...
Franken May Not Be Funny, But His Fans Are A Hoot
from Don Surber on October 25, 2005 - 12:55
UPDATE: Al Franken tells his "joke" about executions again", this time on NBC's "Today show." New Busters has the transcript.

This moron is a rehash of Saturday Night Live, and is not any more funnier than he was back in the day. Franken is the loudmouth of the leftie media, and in need of a serious punch to his mouth....

    I'd like to punch [in the mouth] all of the heavy people in our country. Do you have any idea of the health risks that the obese live with? Their inability to control their appetite just helps to drive up the cost of medicare and the like - which of course I wind up paying for.

    Like to see you try it. You'd like to, but you won't. Nice voice of reason you are.

    Do you have any idea of the health risks that the obese live with?

    Diabetes, hypertension, gallstones, respiratory disorder, stroke, heart attack, broken or weak bones. You're a doctor now?

    Their inability to control their appetite just helps to drive up the cost of medicare and the like - which of course I wind up paying for.

    Why don't you just shoot em all? Come on, that's Nazi talk. Life not worth living. Why don't you shoot Michael Moore and Ted Kennedy first, though. If you waste those two, there might, just might be enough food for 30 years with those two behemoths being slain. Otherwise, engage in your campaign to kill the fat guys, some of whom would whoop your ass.

    And no one needs your snide comments about the obese. Define obese? It varies more than poll results. As long as they aren't dropping dead overnight, and cows and food are plentiful, the US is fine.

    Otherwise, shut your flapping yap for a second, and think. You didn't do crap to defend Franken, just changed the subject. Your comment reads like you have a deathgrudge against society's portly members.

    Wanna start deciding who to kill and who to let live? Typical liberals, wanting to play god and kill everyone but themselves.....

    Hmmmm. That's ironic. Your viewpoint suggests that so long as you don't see the innocent die, its ok. ie: bomb a village to stop terrorism. No doubt, you'll kill the terrorists in the area, but in addition, you'll kill 20-30 innocents.

    So then your POV becomes the old: '...have to break a few eggs to make an omlet'.

    Truth is, I agree.

    On the same note, however, I am pretty damned sure that the about-to-be-bombed mother of 4 would rather see fat Americans killed rather than her -- wouldn't you tend to agree? It seems only fair from her POV.

    I know -- it's so silly just thinking about it, isn't it? You're asking, how can Kevin possibly be making such an argument - its ridiculous.

    But thats the same way I feel when you write people off as, whats the phrase, oh yea - 'collateral damage'.

    Last time I checked, you're a pretty heavy man. So the truth is, it WOULD help our country if we weren't so damned fat. Should we kill the fat and lazy for not doing their part? Who knows. But it's a different story when you're the egg, isn't it?

    Your comment reads like you have a deathgrudge against society's portly members.

    Not portly. Ignorant and quick to make life decisions for the rest of the world so long as they don't have to lift a finger to do them.

    You want to help the world? Volunteer. Move to Africa or something. You've got bad knees so you say, help drive trucks of food and water to those parts of the world needing it.

    Kevin, I don't see you volunteering anywhere right now. Put your money where your mouth is.

     
  • At 6:43 PM, Blogger Kevin said…

    See again -- you miss the point.

    You are right, I am NOT volunteering. But you are not either.

    So my only point is, why must you continue to harrass those that make the point to YOU?

    You get on a high horse about the military and how we NEED people to die in order to save our country.

    Libs disagree with that mentality. So, when you harrass them, they say, "fine, prove me wrong, you sign up". To which you say "...why don't you first" - like you're some undereducated 6th grader at lunch.

    Your opinions are fine. But I'm sorry, I have to side with the libs in the case of you getting on a high horse, but on the same note being too proud to merely say, you're right, I should do something - but I don't.

    Because the truth is, ND, you don't do anything more than I do to help this country. Actually, I make more money than you, so I pump more into the economy. So we could split hairs about stuff like that all day long - but in the end, neither of us is 'helping' the country right now.

    Why can't you just admit that? Is it SO wrong to do NOTHING?

    You had a point, what a shock. Thought you were pontificating as usual.

     
  • At 6:54 PM, Blogger Kevin said…

    Man walters - regardless of what I say, or how peacefully I try to say it - you just remain a fatass schmuck of foreskin gently flapping in a hot fart's jetstream.

    It's a shame really.

    Sourcing Newsbusters is like sourcing The Weekly World News or some tabloid at the newsstand.

    Next time you quote Newsbusters, might I suggest you pick an article where they don't don't completely and untruthfully misrepresent what Franken said.

    Fatass schmuck, foreskin.... great Parliamentary debating as usual, Kev.

    yea blow me pilsbury

    i've tried again and again to be nice to you. it never seems to do anything.
