Franken Runs

Strib reports on this political shocker:
WASHINGTON - Comedian and radio talk show host Al Franken has begun calling Democratic members of Congress and prominent DFLers to tell them he will definitely challenge Republican Sen. Norm Coleman in 2008, the Star Tribune learned Wednesday.
Franken is already prepared for the carpet bagger question:
"I'll be the only New York Jew in the race who actually grew up in Minnesota."
If nothing else, it will be a fun campaign.
