1. Theyre prepping for their next target.

Maybe itís Mueller. Iím sure Gillibrand will probably call for him to resign.

6. If that happens, we will have to hold an intervention with Gillibrand

2. Why are these people smiling?

People don't happily smile during sexual harrassment or assault.

5. All three photos provided as evidence by the three named accusers that came after Tweeden don't show

any groping and look perfectly innocent. In all three photos women are smiling and there is no hint of anything being wrong. You can't see where his hands are in two of the photos, but in one where he allegedly just groped the breast his hand isn't near an actual breast.

12. Sometimes they do.

Self-preservation and disbelief are pretty powerful.

7. Or swift boated

Or railroaded like Shirley Sherrod. I'd include Sam Seder, but MSNBC actually took a look at that situation and corrected their error (though why they didn't smell a rat about a sudden controversy over an eight year old tweet will forever be a mystery).

9. I never thought of that. I guess their looking

for someone younger, so that leaves me out. Maybe they'll go after Adam Shiff, after all, he's been pretty boisterous.

8. How dare you show that photo!

Donít you know that, according to the victim, Al Franken put his around her waist when the photo was taken? Every time a victim looks at that picture, all the memories of asking a famous person to pose for a picture and then having that person put their hand on the waist in an admittedly nonsexual manner come flooding back.

Her WAIST, people. PTSD city. Sexual predation clearly confirmed.



People should be sickened and outraged by that article, just not at Al Franken. I hope his libel suit is filed in the morning.

10. Hey, he touched me, too

That tends to happen during a handshake. Occupational hazard, I guess.

11. I did a search of Republicans

Posing with people at fairs and conventions. Nothing would stop anyone 6 years from now to claim ď oh yeah, he touched my buttĒ. How would you disprove it (you canít). He is in an impossible position, to prove a negative.
