His tag line joke was that since Rove committed treason by outing a C.I.A, agent, he might be shot. Do you think some of the right wingers will take this out of context?

Franken: "George H. W. Bush, the president's father, was the head of the CIA, and he has said that outing a CIA agent is treason.

So basically, what it looks like is going to happen, is that Libby and Karl Rove are going to be executed.

Yes, and I don't know how I feel about it because I'm basically against the death penalty."
