Al Franken to Run for Senate; Tom Davis Not

According to an anonymous senior Democratic official, comedian and soon-to-be-former Air America Radio personality Al Franken is definitely going to run for Senate in Minnesota in 2008. It is being speculated that his official announcement could be made during his final Air America broadcast, scheduled for February 14th.

Is Al Franken out of his mind? What, exactly, has led him to think that he's equipped to hold public office in Minnesota? I challenge him to prove that he's ever once body-slammed Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka and/or battled the Predator.

UPDATE (02/14/07): Wonkette confirms that the prophecy has been fulfilled (and they've got a link to video of the announcement).
