We have another out-of-date episode of Al Franken’s podcast, that again slipped under the wire since it got posted on a different schedule than usual. But also again, it’s valuable and interesting – and much shorter than a normal show, this time just 17 minutes. He calls it “Al Gives His Closing Argument for the Impeachment Trial.” As he describes the piece, “Any intellectually honest Republican Senator would vote to convict after hearing this. Unfortunately, that’s not near enough.” As the trial showed a few days later, he was correct, it wasn’t near enough. But it’s still very good.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
