In Sen. Norm Coleman's new ad, three bowlers criticize Al Franken for his "Foul-mouthed attacks ... tasteless, sexist jokes" and "writing all that juicy porn."
"And we've decided we're running for U.S. Senate," one guy says. "Why not? We're just as qualified as Al Franken, and we're better bowlers."
The "juicy porn" line likely refers to a column Franken wrote for Playboy in 2000 called "Porn-O-Rama!"
"Norm Coleman is already resorting to misleading smear attacks, but I guess that was predictable," spokesman Andy Barr tells The Hill. "Given his record of selling out to Big Oil and special interests and lining up in lockstep with George W. Bush, what else was he going to talk about?"
