Franken like Kagen?

Franken's going to raise a stink and make the local paper for his childish behavior, just newly sworn in?

Sounds like Franken. Pretty classy, that guy.
Sen. Al Franken managed to make time for the lunch – but then let Pickens have it afterward.

According to a source, the wealthy oil and gas magnate and author of “The First Billion is the Hardest” stepped up to introduce himself to Franken in a room just off the Senate Floor after the lunch ended

Franken, who was seated talking to someone else, did not stand when Pickens said hello. Instead, Franken began to berate him about the billionaire’s financing of the Swift Boat ads in 2004.

According to a source, the confrontation grew heated.

Said Franken spokeswoman Jess McIntosh: “It was a lively conversation.”
I will say one thing for Minnesota's constituents: At least he didn't throw the old man up against a bathroom wall and nickname himself after a pretend superloser "Dr. Millionaire."
