Why does that jerk Franken keep saying "alleged sex tape"?
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 11:59 AM by all_hail_gwb
Has he been threatened by FAUX, or has he finally wimped out against O'LIEly?

On edit: Changed subject for StClone's benefit

3. I think it's mostly a joke, but....
the fact remains that the tape's existence hasn't been verified. We've only seen the one transcript. The amount of detail implies the existence of a tape. It's silly, I know. You'd think Franken would want to get sued by the Splotchy One.

4. Has to
Or leave himself open for a slander suit. Or prove there is a tape.

5. You mean the Macris tape?
It never came out. They settled out of court so the tape never saw the light of day (although they transcribed big parts of it).

6. Someone should do a "dramatic re-enactment" of it
And then post it online.

With the propper disclaimers that it is, in fact, a dramatic re-enactment.

7. Two reasons.
Because O'Liely thinks trial lawyers are evil, except the FOX lawyers who sue for libel.

Franken's no dummy.
