Frankened. Could be a new verb.


Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn. said he plans to resign after more than a half dozen women came forward over the past several weeks with allegations that he touched them improperly or made unwanted sexual advances. Franken also disputed some of the accusations and suggested he is being held to a different standard than President Trump.

"A couple months ago I felt we had entered an important moment in the history of this country," Franken said on the Senate floor. "We were finally beginning to listen to women about the way mens' actions affect them," he said. "Then the conversation turned to me," said Franken. "I was shocked” but trying to be sensitive to the women's feelings, he said.

Dems can still block legislation with Moore voting for whatever it is.

Did you forget that there are other Republican senators that could do anything at any time?

Just WORK AT IT.

We work harder?  Then you get what you get.

Why do you expect a Dem walkover (forfeit) in ALA anyway?  Moore is a gift to you - he gives you a chance.

Well, Trump and the RNC do.  The GOP Senate doesn’t.  
But keep yelling at yourself in the mirror if it makes you feel better.


Yeah, my crazy arguments with no merit...except I note you've amended your argument from "the GOP" doesn't want Moore to "the GOP Senate."
I never amended anything. The GOP Senate has been against Moore all along.
McConnell knows that Moore in the Senate is poisonous to GOP politically in 2018.
Trump is only concerned about himself.  An argument I have now repeated several times.

Because in RSW's Magical Land of Delusional Thinking, repeating oneself is evidence to support a political point.

You talk about republican senators as if they had intelligence, will, or conscience of their own. The don't. They dance when their donors say dance. They will drag their terrified daughters to Moore's post swearing in reception, should he win. The GOP, senators and all, is a political front for monied kactocracy.

If Clarence quits, the Trump appointed replacement couldn't be any worse.

Whew, I just broke out in hysterical laughter as I typed that first sentence. 

Second thought, hope Thomas stays in, at least until after 2020 and the new Democrat PotUS can then replace.  Maybe that new guy will even commute Trump's jail sentence, so Trump can go home or at least go to a nice well-managed insane asylum.

Oh, stop it. They without a doubt want another vote in the republican column right now more than they will worry about any criticism of have a pedophile in the Senate. They will worry about any criticism of that at a later date.

Without the video he would have never been charged and even with the video a jury wouldn’t convict him... but there is some measure of justice.

An assertion that cannot be proved.

But nice of you to drop in and whine, despite Justice being served.

The Republican condemnation of Moore ended when it became clear be would not succumb to pressure and abandon the race. Betweem a paedophile and,a.Democrat, they want the paedophile.

A jury did fail to convict him, no?  So, there is that proven.

And does seem as though the video was central to the case against, both in bringing attention to it, then proving that the victim didn't go after the taser. 

What evidence would there have been to dispute the officers account without the bystander video?
