Al Franken Draws the U.S….almost.

7 08 2008

This is really amazing.  Watch Al Franken draw an amazingly accurate map of the U.S., freehand in front of a crowd.  Well, actually, not ALL of the U.S.  He says right off the bat he won’t be drawing Alaska…not even as a big square island off the coast of California where we usually are.  No Hawaii either.

At the end, some guy asks what he’s got against Alaska and Hawaii.  “Is it that Bridge to Nowhere Thing?”  Franken laughingly answers, “Yup. It’s the Bridge to Nowhere.”

And once again we get to thank soon to be ex-Senator Ted Stevens and soon to be ex- Congressman Don Young for yet another 15 seconds of fame…. Sigh.
