Al Franken to UN: 'Drop Acid in Space'|
Air America talk show host recommends space shuttle flights and LSD for world leaders
On the Friday, Agust 5th broadcast of the Al Fraken Show on Air America, while discussing the space shuttle mission with co-host Katherine Lanpher, Al Franken suggested that the UN HQ should be relocated to space, and that members of the UN should "drop acid" to get a better perspective of "Spaceship Earth, man."
Franken's comments came after discussing the current Discovery shuttle mission in which Shuttle Commander Eileen Collins noted to Japanese officials and press that the Earth is showing visible and worrying signs of continual environmental degradation. Franken also suggested that President Bush be sent into space.
Franken was only half-joking when he made the comment about the UN HQ being relocated to space, prefacing it with, "This is an idea I've had since high school." He then added the comment, "... and they should drop acid," as an aside, repeating it multiple times. Katherine Lanpher, Franken's co-host, responded, "How do you know they aren't dropping acid already?"
Archives of the show should be avilable here soon.
