I have never been more mad and sick to my stomach then right now.

A honorable and decent Senator railroaded out of office by smears while our democracy dies before our eyes.
How much more can we take?

48. Did Dems take the "high road?"

so that accused Repubs will have to do so too, or just the "stupid ground," so Repubs can continue to run right over us, and take out our best?

No doubt in my mind. Stupid Dem women. I have raised money for all of them. Gillibrand, I will oppose forever. She wanted to knock him out for Pres. She cannot be 1/100th of the voice that Franken was for the Dems, and women.

#metoo
I have Represented victims in sex harrasment cases for 30 years. I Have a daughter who was raped as a child.
This was a set up to get rid of one of our best, who is not one who takes advantage of women, BEFORE even giving him an investigation.

They only take out one of the most effective Dems, but do nothing about actual criminal rapists repugs - traitors! I have never said that about a Democrat before, but they deserve it.

That's where we are, thanks to a Democratic Party that has not been a true opposition party for 40 years. That giant sucking sound you hear, is any enthusiasm for the 2018 Congressional races, being sucked out of the room. This was a colossally stupid move at a critical time. I too, am sick to my stomach.

speaks for me:

We asked for signs
The signs were sent
The birth betrayed
The marriage spent
Yeah the widowhood
Of every government
Signs for all to see

I can't run no more
With that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud
But they've summoned, they've summoned up
A thundercloud
And they're going to hear from me

49. and its going to get much worse

the fascists are in control from the highest court to the majority state legislators. The country is in the worse shape its has been in since the Civil War and it may just take a Civil War or revolution to correct the problem.

52. It only took Franken three weeks to be ratfucked by Roger Stone.

Franken was one of our stronger senators. How fast do you think any of the Democrats for Stone who wanted Franken to resign can withstand their time in the barrel? How fast will any of them make nice with Roy Moore if he gets elected in Alabama, in hopes of covering their ass?

54. Right there with you

it sucks and what is worse is that a very low bar has been set. The next one to have even one anonymous allegation will go immediately, followed by another and another.

Then, there are the 2018 elections. My guess is that ad after ad will reference "allegations" of sexual misconduct.

I'll vote, I always do, but my heart isn't in it anymore. Yeah, I'll vote for Dems, becasue I have no other choice.

55. I am beyond angry and don't think that I will

ever be able to forgive the Democratic Party for their treachery. Time and time again they continue to prove that they cannot be trusted or relied upon. If I could afford to I would pack up and leave the US. The only direction that this country has to go is downward. Our sole ray of hope is Robert Mueller and hopefully he will find enough evidence to take them down.

64. For what it's worth...

In the cafeteria (excuse me... cafe) at work, I regularly sit next to a big table full of brainwashed republicans, just to listen in on their conversation, to get a feel for the political atmosphere around here. Today, they were cackling happy about this and damn near breaking out champagne in their giddiness about how easy it was to "trick them stupid libtards into getting rid" of Franken.

So, that's what this whole escapade has won our side.

67. Golden opportunity, lost

This was a watershed moment, both for the Dems and the #metoo movement.
The gang that conspired to remove Franken did what we (as Dems) always do: punt.
We don't stand up for our own in deference always to political correctness - even when the PC stand shows a deeply flawed sense of morality and justice.
Social media and these pages are filled today with rage and frustration over our inability to ever truly move forward. We let the fascists win again. The Democratic party has eroded much of the hopefulness and goodwill generated by a disgusted populace under a corrupt administration. The fallout form this mess is frightening.
I have been looking for a safe landing spot since last November. It's time to renew that effort - this country is toast.

71. Dumb-ass Dems.

Talk about eating your own. The Democrats sacrificed Franken to use as a wedge issue in 2018..."We don't allow sexual harassment in our Party,"...like the Rethugs give a damn." They elected a moronic, serial pussy-grabbing POS for president and can't wait until that lying gun-toting pedophile joins the Senate. Please.

IMO, Leeann Tweeden was not credible in the least and conspired with Roger Stone, Bannon, et al, to set up Franken...who knows about the others. At the very least, the Ethics Committee should have allowed the investigative process play out.

75. Not it isn't

This is the Dems way of playing long ball. With Conyers and Franken gone, they can attack trump and moore big time. The Dems will be able to attack the repub family values big time.

Look, I wish Franken would stay, but do you see how this will play out?

112. It's already playing out very badly in both major parties

and it will not improve.

A huge number of Dems could not be more angry about their party's betrayal and railroading of Al Franken.

A huge number of Republicans are laughing all the way to their next wins. Most of them seem to see the railroad job too.

We loaded them with ammunition to shoot us with. They can have Ronald Reagan vids running around the clock - "Dems eat their own even those who did nothing wrong - but Republicans are loyal 'We never speak ill of any fellow Republican'."

Rumor has it that Dayton (Dem) will appoint the Lt Governor Tina Smith (Dem). That would be a good thing.

By saying she wasn't interested in running for the Senate seat. So if she decides to run she is already compromised. I can imagine the Republican ads already.

First make sure the High Road doesn't lead off a cliff.

I'm Minnesotan, I tend towards a cold anger. I'm angry now.

We didn't just idly stand by and watch as Republicans gang-stabbed Franken a la the Ides of March, we helped carry the knives.

peace,
