Norm Coleman to Al Franken: I Brought Hockey Back!

Norm Coleman and Al Franken

Norm Coleman and Al Franken

This ad by Al Franken is one of the best I have watched this political season. Franken is running for a US Senate seat in Minnesota against incumbent Republican Norm Coleman. In the fall of 1993 Minnesota’s team “The North Stars” fled for Dallas. But the state was able to land an expansion franchise to begin play during the 2000-2001 season. Coleman has really played up the fact that he played a role in getting the replacement team.

Franken responded thusly:

Brilliant!
