Franken Wins First Round

I’m delighted to see that Al Franken won the initial ruling on the Fox News lawsuit, and that his book was the number one bestseller on Amazon last week. From the article, comes a very Franken-like quote:

“In addition to thanking my own lawyers,” Franken said after the ruling, “I’d like to thank Fox’s lawyers for filing one of the stupidest briefs I’ve ever seen in my life.”

I half suspect Franken of bribing someone to file this lawsuit. It’s far better publicity for his book than he could have bought.
