Looking up former U.S. Senator Tom Colburn, I found the following on the search engine:
Aug 2, 2017 – Surprisingly, there are some senators that aren’t particularly funny, Franken revealed. Sen.Tom Coburn from Oklahoma — known as “Dr. No” partly because he was a physician in his old life, but mostly because he says no to any kind of federal funding — was the first senator to come to Franken’s mind.
Me thinks Senator Franken should have emulated Senator Colburn.
Franken wrote a book entitled, “Al Franken: Giant of the Senate.”
