      Shame on the knumbskulls who elect him. Theyll eventually be slaughtered by the religion of peace that have invaded their state.

      Yes, the immortal comedian featured in Trading Places (One of The Two Railroad Yard Idiots).

      Such is life: Tom Davis, as his excellent memoir reveals, was the talented one of the duo Franken & Davis.

      Davis dies at a relatively young age and Franken goes on to play the fraudulent role of The Respectable Elder Statesman in the United States Senate.

      You/I/We can’t make this stuff up.

      “$912,000” !!!

      And that includes the popcorn-and-soda- sold ledger entry.
