#1 I had to go and check to see if Franken actually had a law degree. Doesn't seem to, just a BA which might have been a precursor to a law degree if he'd bothered to go to law school after Harvard.
So, man doesn't have a JD, doesn't belong to any bar association, has never practiced law, and sole legal experience has been chairing a Judiciary subcommittee. Yeah, that's the Senate for you. Which is why I've always told people Biden is "smart for the Senate". You have to grade on the curve with these people, or else you'd have difficulty telling a special-needs class from a Judiciary subcommittee.
