Franken: Ready to rumble

Al Franken, amid a flurry of concerns by the Democratic Party, conceded his contested senate seat today.

"It's not that I'm not good enough and smart enough, doggone it," he remarked. "It's just that, well, what I really want to do is become a WWF wrestler and pound Rush Limbaugh's fat fanny on the mat."

"We have unfinished business," Franken continued. "Even though I can't give Limbaugh grief through Air America anymore, I still want to give that blowhard a smackdown."

In response, Limbaugh stated, "I would love to have a chance to meet Al in the ring. I'd start by giving him one of my favorite moves, the Golden EIB Turnbuckle Treatment and then I'd follow it up by being firmly ensconced on his smarmy face."

Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi were stunned by Franken's announcement, however, they plan to buy ringside tickets for any potential matches.
