Are Dems burning down the house to warm the baby's bath water?

Seems like it to me.

2. Things like that help to confirm my suspicions of what these

allegations against Franken feel like

4. So why have most of the Dem representatives thrown Al Franken under the bus?

I have lost my respect for many of them as they seem to want to "take the easy way out" instead of fighting for what is right. I hope Al Franken continues the fight to clear his name. I am afraid there are some of these so-called sexually harassed women that are total frauds.

5. I do not know why

They may have reasons yet to be revealed

But when I last checked, we should have a thing called due process. Nothing Franken has done nor anything these senators could possibly have dreamed up could have curtailed his right to that.

3. The gop protect

pedophiles, but the dems. ostracize Franken? If Roy Moore can dig his heels in to get elected, why can't Franken dig in his heels to KEEP THE JOB he was elected to do? Franken should declare that he will resign (if proven guilty of something) as soon as tRump resigns when his charges are proven.

8. Franken should scold every one of them for jumping the gun.

He doesn't need to worry about continuing close relationships with "friends" like these.

9. I dont see the house being burned down.

We are gaining numbers and fighting the good fight.

Hyperbole is the item that’s on fire.

10. I'm reminded of the quote long attributed to Truman:

“If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.”


Sadly for Franken, IF this is a coordinated set-up, that quote is devastatingly true

15. how do you figure WE are gaining numbers?

the facebook pages of all these senators are filled with condemnation of their actions against franklin,against the end of due process, against conflating hugs with rape

or do you mean some secret different WE?

14. lucy charlie football

republics do entrapment and personal destruction. because it works. witness o'keefe's most recent bogus moore accuser washington post "sting". well, that didnt work out so well, but he did the deed destroying acorn.

doesn't leannes association with hannity and stone seem exactly like an o'keefe plan? the same entrapment over and over.....And isn't there a pot of corrupt cash waiting to reward leanne, like the way o'keefe gets fucking millions of dollars donated to his non-profit?

why do not the senate dems calling for his head practice basic principles of democracy - like due process? get the investigation going. put leanne under oath.

its like senate dems believe in burning witches or human sacrifice? stoning on the town green. it's like the dems are content with being only 20% less cruel and despicable than republics!

dems, you fools, you cant negotiate with republics. they have no sense of basic human decency!

-90% jimmy
