Al Franken, Hand-to-Hand

Al Franken, no Dean supporter, nevertheless tackled a Dean heckler at a rally today in New Hampshire, decking the guy and breaking his own glasses in the process.

The heckler was apparently among a group of Lyndon LaRouche supporters bent on disrupting Dean's speech. (Lyndon LaRouche supporters? Isn't he, like, in jail somewhere?) And Franken said if there's one thing he can't stand, it's seeing someone denied the right to speak.

Readers of Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them will recall that Franken facetiously challenged Rich Lowry to a bout of fisticuffs, to prove Lowry's insult (that all Democrats were little more than femmes) was simply wrong. Your point has been made, Al!
