Al Frankenphiles

When you are having a Frankenphile convention, and you decide to go out en masse, it may be a good idea to be on your best behavior, to put a positive light on the face of your cause.

When 50 of you go to Eddington's, blocking others, filling the aisle, and otherwise being rude, it makes your entire cause look like jerks. Hey, stupid people, you were wearing Al Franken stickers. I know who you were representing.

Real people, adults that is, say "please" and "thank you" and occasionally, even "excuse me".

If "excuse me" doesn't work, for the sole reason that you are a jerkface, I'll have to demonstrate my elite crowd-maneuvering skills, learned in the festival seating sections of the finest death metal concerts.

And no, I won't admit to hanging a sign on the wall about Al Franken and gerbils. What he does in the privacy of his own stuffing room is his own business.

And Sarah Palin can kick his ass.
