BFFs? Franken says he likes Bachmann

News

Al Franken is a liberal Democrat. Michele Bachmann is a conservative Republican. The only thing these two appear to have in common is that they're both representatives from Minnesota.

Even so, Franken has a soft spot for the presidential hopeful, he said in an interview with The Advocate:

"I like Michele. Whenever we’re hanging out together, when you’re in the same delegation, you just do. You just see each other, we fly on a plane together, we’ve gone to funerals together, we’ve cried together, we’ve laughed together. Here [in Washington, D.C.,] we had a Minnesota hotdish-off—she was the only Republican who came; she wore a Twins apron. I think she was the only other member in the delegation besides me who actually made the hotdish. She made venison kielbasi, sauerkraut, and noodles, and we had a fun time."

Franken added that he disagrees with Bachmann on a federal marriage amendment, "and almost everything else."
