Foot-In-Mouth Franken?

leave a comment »

So I saw on Drudge’s site that Al Franken committed another “gaffee” while presiding in the Senate.

What was this horrible infraction?

Franken, the most famous member of the Senate freshmen class, has logged dozens of hours as presiding officer of the chamber, a duty often given to new senators to help them learn arcane procedural rules.

Franken suffered another embarrassing moment Wednesday morning when he mistakenly recognized Sen. Tom Udall as the “senator from Utah.”

Udall quickly corrected Franken by noting that he’s from New Mexico.

“Oh, God,” Franken boomed into his microphone. “I’m sorry.”

“The senator from New Mexico,” Franken said, emphasizing “New Mexico” to make up for his mistake.

Really — this is that big a deal?

Hell, I’m sure Strom Thurmond and Robert Byrd in their final years probably didn’t always know what state THEY were representing in the Senate.

Gotta give Al a pass on this one.
