Final Score: Franken 2, Coulter 0

YouTube and a few other sites are running a wonderful video clip from a couple of years ago – a political forum featuring Ann Coulter and Al Franken who, of course, are polar opposites politically.

The provocative question posed to each: If you could come back as an historical figure, who would it be and what would you do differently?

Coulter, ever the extreme right-wing ideologue, said she would come back as Franklin Roosevelt so she could not introduce the New Deal.

Franken said he would come back as Hitler which, of course, caused a stir in the audience. Then he turned to Coulter and said, “You get to call off the New Deal, I’d call off the holocaust.”

The audience applauded as Coulter sat stone-faced and said … nothing.

Then Franken added, “But I’d keep the Volkswagen”, generating a big laugh from the crowd.

It’s really going to be fun having Al Franken in the Senate!
