with all these "Actually, Bill Clinton was bad" retrospectives, i sure hope they leave Franken alone. it would be poetic.


Franken is the heir of Wellstone. He doesn't go anywhere on his own, and I'm sure he'll run and win whenever his term is up.

Franken's chapter about Wellstone's funeral in "Lies, and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them" is instructive. But I couldn't get through whatever his next book was called, and they just got smugger and smugger after that.

Did he have billions of dollars that he privately used to donate away every objection to him reneging and then changing the law so he could run again? /Bloomberg shoehorn

Keep in mind the ex-wife was a pretty big Dem supporter, and the crash was 5 days after she asked for the divorce. My perceptions may be a bit, how you say, tainted. I also cried tears of joy when Daschole didn't get the HHS position he and his pharmaceutical rep wife had been angling for for so long.

this whole thing of mcconnell threatening to have moore expelled from the senate immediately if he wins, i dunno, democracy? pandora's slippery slope box? i don't see how they can toss the guy for behavior before he was elected, with no convictions. just give him time and he'll shortly screw up, or the thing with his wife's charity paying him will get big enough.

Franken is the heir of Wellstone. He doesn't go anywhere on his own, and I'm sure he'll run and win whenever his term is up.


Franken sounds like a guy prepared to resign with this statement:

“The first thing I want to do is apologize: to Leeann, to everyone else who was part of that tour, to everyone who has worked for me, to everyone I represent, and to everyone who counts on me to be an ally and supporter and champion of women. There’s more I want to say, but the first and most important thing—and if it’s the only thing you care to hear, that’s fine—is: I’m sorry.

I respect women. I don’t respect men who don’t. And the fact that my own actions have given people a good reason to doubt that makes me feel ashamed.

But I want to say something else, too. Over the last few months, all of us—including and especially men who respect women—have been forced to take a good, hard look at our own actions and think (perhaps, shamefully, for the first time) about how those actions have affected women.

For instance, that picture. I don’t know what was in my head when I took that picture, and it doesn’t matter. There’s no excuse. I look at it now and I feel disgusted with myself. It isn’t funny. It’s completely inappropriate. It’s obvious how Leeann would feel violated by that picture. And, what’s more, I can see how millions of other women would feel violated by it—women who have had similar experiences in their own lives, women who fear having those experiences, women who look up to me, women who have counted on me.

Coming from the world of comedy, I’ve told and written a lot of jokes that I once thought were funny but later came to realize were just plain offensive. But the intentions behind my actions aren’t the point at all. It’s the impact these jokes had on others that matters. And I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to come to terms with that.

While I don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit as Leeann does, I understand why we need to listen to and believe women’s experiences.

I am asking that an ethics investigation be undertaken, and I will gladly cooperate.

And the truth is, what people think of me in light of this is far less important than what people think of women who continue to come forward to tell their stories. They deserve to be heard, and believed. And they deserve to know that I am their ally and supporter. I have let them down and am committed to making it up to them.”

...to me this sounds like a guy who knows it was just a dumb joke but also knows he and his pals have been playing this sexual assault bullshit up for political gain and just happens to have reached the azimuth of the bullshit right at the time when his dumb joke was made public. an ethics investigation into a photo of a guy pretending to grab tits over a kevlar vest. get right the fuck out of town.

i'm not 100 on the timing, but i believe others had already been calling for an ethics investigation of him before he released his statement.

i'm willing to entertain the possibility that he's actually contrite. call me a silly head if you must.
