Would comedian Al Franken poke fun at Sen. Al Franken? The Minnesota Democrat answered that question during an interview that aired Sunday on ABC's "This Week."
"When I would make fun of politicians, [it was] only because they were screwing up in some way," Franken said. "I don't think I could find anything, frankly."
"I'd be a really hard subject to satirize, because I've just been impeccable," Franken added, then laughing and saying, "I've made some small mistakes I suppose."
The former "Saturday Night Live" actor and comedian won his senate seat in 2008 by a margin of only 312 votes.
Asked about the difficulty of running as a Democrat during the sixth year of President Obama's two-term tenure in the White House, Franken said, "I'm very comfortable doing that."
