Franken's missive, written on letterhead from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, claimed that he had already received abstinence stories from other prominent Republicans, including Condoleezza Rice and Senator Rick Santorum. However, in his July 11 apology, Franken admitted that he had not received those abstinence stories and called his solicitation to Ashcroft, "an imprudent attempt at satire."

Hmmmm. I wonder if Harvard has disavowed Franken's little prank. Maybe I should write a letter asking Al Sharpton if he's ever done the goose step or the Nazi salute: "Be funny Al! Be funny!"
