Hot Potato Style
is a video by New Orleans rapper Nicky Da B made with a little help from Jean Luc Picard, Pee Wee Herman, John Stamos, and Charlie Chaplin (among others). Lyrics are probably slightly not safe for work.

Minnesota is a state rich in study material for fans of political oddity. The state has faced famous (and infamous) political news in the last few years, from the legendary surprise independent gubernatorial victory of Jesse "The Body" Ventura
to the tragic death of Senator Paul Wellstone
and its ensuing fallout
, and lunacy
. It holds a unique variation in the usual two-party system with the DFL
replacing the Democratic Party. St. Paul will host the 2008 Republican National Convention
. And now, the ongoing oddity that is Minnesota politics will now enter a new chapter as Comedian Al Franken
, who moved his Air America radio show to his home state of Minnesota a year ago, will be leaving radio in February to run for his late friend Paul Wellstone's old Senate seat
against incumbent Republican incumbent Norm Coleman
. Another unique fact would be should Franken win the DFL nomination, it would be a rare instance of both candidates from the major parties in a statewide race being Jewish- Franken and Coleman are two of the less than 50,000
Jews living in the state.

"Joseph McCarthy must be smiling admirably in Hades"
-- British MP George Galloway, on Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) We've previously discussed Galloway here
, but I thought that pan had flashed and I'd never hear his name again. This is transAtlantic Politifilter for your Friday Morning. (via Minneapolis Star-Tribune, it may ask for reg.)
