    Democrats Wait Until Word of Impending Franken Resignation to Call for Franken Resignation

    Democrats Wait Until Word of Impending Franken Resignation to Call for Franken Resignation


    Up until Wednesday, the Democrat talking points on Franken’s many alleged sexual misdoings were: 1) he made a “mistake” and 2) what Franken (allegedly) did was not nearly as bad as other recently unmasked sexual predators.

    The second may be true, but that doesn’t make Franken’s alleged actions (see also: allegedly sticking his tongue down a woman’s throat without consent) excusable.

    Franken, they argued, was too politically valuable to scrap over a series of butt-grabbing allegations. With allegations piling up, Franken apologized and Democrats seemed satisfied enough.

    So what changed? Word of Franken’s plans to resign, that’s what.

    Wednesday, the Democrat chorus changed its tune and finally began calling for Franken to step down.

    Also this:

    Franken was perfectly acceptable and even defended by the same Democrats now calling for his resignation and nothing has changed except for the fact that he’s reportedly decided on his own it’s time to throw in the towel.

    Franken scheduled a press conference for Thursday during which he’s expected to announce his resignation.

    Hang in there Al. Don’t let them chase you out of your duly elected position. You are a short, ugly comedy challenged asshole-American. You represent many short ugly un-funny American assholes. None of the Senators calling for your resignation voted for you in the first place. They don’t even live in the same state.

    HANG IN THERE AL! Don’t leave the thousands of asshole-Americans who supported you and depend on you out in the cold. You know for sure, Al, that if your state had a Republican Governor you would have the complete support of your party. Al… it’s all about politics.

    Please don’t go. Schedule every daytime TV show you can. Get out there and give Whoopi a little tongue. Rosie could use some squeezing. Show the world you are a non discriminating abuser. Become the face of the modern democrat party.

    You da man, Al.

    All this is just battlespace preparation for when Judge Moore gets elected.

      Then they jumped the gun.

      The chronology is important. If the voters put a candidate in office, then it is later convincingly revealed that he’s a sleazebag, or a criminal, or a carnivorous shape-shifting lizard from another star, it seems right and proper to demand his removal.

      Post-1913, Senators are put in office by the voters; not the Party, not the Governor, and not the other Senators, and their opinions are irrelevant. So … if the claims of sleazebagginess, criminality, or alien origin are known to the voters before the election, but they vote for the candidate anyway, then … the voters selected who they wanted, and the claims have no further relevance. Ditto for any attempt by the Senate to hamstring the candidate after the election, as per Powell v. McCormack (1969). The other Senators can’t blow off the voters and effectively undo an election.

      Of course after the election the Dems could make up some new crimes, or manufacture the slam-dunk evidence they haven’t been able to present so far, and that would put Moore in Franken territory. But I doubt they have any such thing; they’re relying on instant innuendo (“instant” as in, insufficient time to review, like Harry Reid’s lies about Romney’s taxes). And that sort of attack can only work when the electoral schedule is very tight.

    I think they explained to Franken is that since they will be doing the Moore and Trump thing now until forever that the typical way of burying his accusations wasn’t going to work since Republicans would be bringing it up in response. Since Franken knows his own party and the media is going on the sexual harassment warpath he understand he doesn’t want to be fighting that daily and try and be a Senator. He is stepping down because he is on the way of the new “war on women” train coming not because he had a change of heart nor did other Democrats think they couldn’t do for him what they did for Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy.

    That Franken, has always been an un-funny jerk. He is one clown, who never should have been elected. If he loses his political office, he will starve to death. Who would hire that no-talent ? Now we find out that on top of everything, he is also a ” Perv.”
