@edgarblythe,
A more coherent explanation of the various issues than I've heard elsewhere.

By respecting one another, they were able to communicate. Most unusual.

I would call him President Franken but it's still a tad too soon.

Apparently he can draw a map of the US states by memory:

Most of us couldn't draw the map with another one in front of us.

He only needs to be concerned about Minnesota.

@edgarblythe,
I couldn't get a lot of meaning out of the video (jerky on my computer, and some not-good camera angles for lipreading), but a thought I had while watching is that this guy has years of experience being a stand-up comedian -- who better to deal with hecklers?

It all looked very Minnesota too though (in terms of respect/ niceness).

True, on another site the members were nonplussed by the whole "angry mob" title. That is neither a mob nor very angry.
