Franken should register as a republican. Seriously.

If the republicans elect their 'Bama pedophile and welcome him into the Darkside KGOP frat house, then Franken should stay in the Senate and change his voter registration to R. He could continue to advocate progressive policies and vote with the Dems, but wear the culturally, sexually and gropingly appropriate label of "republican." As everyone knows, IOKIYAR.

So what if the KGOP propaganda pumps label him as a "fake" conservative? Big deal. Basically all so-called "conservatives" are fake anyway. Otherwise they'd not be systematically, destroying the earth, etc., and submissively, sheepishly following the eminently deceitful Comrade Casino, ignoble republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief & his Assorted Misbegotten Cronies. That ain't conservative. That's radical treason against life on earth, and American democracy. It's deplorable.

1. He should register as an Independent and resign the Democratic Party but not the Senate.

Then Democratic Party could have their high moral ground Franken can still be in the Senate.

2. He would have no power. Being a senator isn't just about a vote.

 

He would get crap committee assignments. He'd be a pariah to both parties. And I doubt he'd be reelected.

4. Franken has said he will resign. In his own words, he is "disgusted" with himself. Time to move on.

5. Except that he's not a Republican.

People are losing their minds here.
