Morning Poll: Is Congressman Trent Franks Senate Worthy?

Categories: Election 2012
Congressman Trent Franks is mulling a run for Senate.
As you're probably well aware, Senator Jon Kyl will not be running for re-election in 2012 -- and that means the who's who of Arizona's GOP are all rumored to be considering a run, including fagala-phobic Congressman Trent Franks, who made it clear this weekend that the rumors are true.

Franks recently said President Barack Obama's decision to no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act was an impeachable offense. He also recently said he's considering running for the Senate seat being vacated by Kyl.

As far as a potential primary with not-kooky Congressman Jeff Flake -- the only declared candidate for the seat -- goes, Frank told the Arizona Republic

"I really have a great deal of respect and friendship toward Jeff Flake. He is a decent man," Franks said. "There are some fairly significant differences between us on a range of significant issues. It might be a decision that should be left to the people, and I have to just gauge if I am the one to offer that alternative or not."

We'd like to help the congressman out with his decision. Do you think Congressman Franks is Senate-worthy?

Of course he is. He's a dumbass isn't he? He knows how to piss away our tax dollars for worthy causes such as promoting his big headed bullshit career. He should be the freaking president, he's so good.

Trent Franks is currently my representative and he is an idiot -- there is absolutely no doubt about that. He is completely controlled by his fundamentalist religious beliefs and is incapable of thinking an original thought. God help us if he is elected to replace someone who is already one of the most repugnant senators in Washington -- Jon Kyl. Believe it or not, Franks would be a step down -- and I didn't think THAT was possible.


Actually, the level of ignorance exhibited by Rep. Frankenfurter should be grounds for impeachment. But then, Az regressives are easily distracted from the real issues by these ridiculous tactics,so he will probably be elected.
