If possible, let's put politics aside for a moment and accept this video for what it is: an impressive bit of artistic memory rendered on paper.

Minnesota's junior Sen. Al Franken, while doing the baby-kissing tour at the Minnesota State Fair, broke out a Sharpie and draws the United States map from memory. That's a par;or trick he's been breaking out for a number of years, but to see it done is still pretty impressive, particularly when you consider the number of people who couldn't even find the entire country on a map in this survey.

OK. Enough of that. Back to your partisan political squabbling. Moment of Zen over.
