Al Franken is taking his show on the road throughout battleground states in the upcoming election. The AP reports that Franken will be doing live remotes throughout the Midwest in the same time frame as the presidential debates:
Al Franken is taking his radio show on the campaign trail. "The Al Franken Show" will broadcast live across the country starting Thursday and ending Oct. 9, making stops in eight cities including swing state battlegrounds Minneapolis; Columbus, Ohio; and Miami.
"It serves a lot of purposes," Franken told The Associated Press Tuesday. "The main one is to drive me into the ground before the elections."
Of course, the way that Air America is going, it may be the farewell tour more than a campaign support tour. It seems somewhat odd that (a) Franken's tour coincides with the debates, (b) his destinations mostly occur in battleground states, and (c) the AP sees fit to publicize it for Franken. Radio talk-show hosts do live remotes and tours all the time. Hugh Hewitt, of course, goes on the road on a regular basis but I've never seen the AP report it.
It confirms what we thought about Air America all along -- it exists only to get around the new campaign-finance restrictions. Its purpose is to allow George Soros and others an unregulated route with which to campaign on John Kerry's behalf, or more accurately, against George Bush.Sphere It View blog reactions
