WASHINGTON, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Newsweek magazine Sunday speculated comedian Al Franken could become the next celebrity to enter the politics.
Now, says Newsweek, add Minnesota native Franken to the list.
Franken, a noted liberal, said Republicans are hypocrites when it comes to celebrities and politics.
Franken said he used to say he would never run because he'd make a terrible official. "Now I don't want to say that, because it would look bad if I ever did run," he said.
