Igor Volsky posts a video from today's Senate hearing on legislation repealing the Defense of Marriage Act in which Senator Al Franken dresses down Tom Minnery from Focus on the Family after the latter fudged the results of a study to suggest that same-sex families were detrimental to children:

Not that this necessarily makes one a good senator, but Franken is particularly good at using hearings to make a point. That doesn't necessarily mean he votes the right way all the time--he read the Fourth Amendment out loud to the then-head of the Justice Department's National Security Division before ultimately voting the PATRIOT Act out of committee anyway--but he's got a knack for this kind of thing.
