I think if life gave Sessions lemons like that, he'd just make lemonade.

Good.  We're finished shooting the messenger.  Now we can get back to talking about what a horrid person Jeff Sessions is.

He's being nominated for Attorney General.

After being rejected for an appointment to the federal bench due to his overt racism.

2017-01-11 10:50:32 AM  
Franken should be on the ticket on 2020.  Hell, he should have been the VP this past election.  He'd make a good Biden.

But sessions will be confirmed.  He's too chummy with all the senators to not be.
 
2017-01-11 10:51:58 AM  
Dog and pony show. The vote on the floor is all that matters, and I'm guessing that's already determined.

Eh, can he just stay on as my Senator? We've already had Norm Coleman and Bachman disgrace us as representation, so I'm way too proud to give up Franken, or Keith Ellison, and I think they're better suited for where they are now.

In 2010, Wikileaks published stolen documents.  Sessions said they should be prosecuted.
In 2016, Wikileaks published stolen documents.  Sessions seems to think that should be legal, as long as he sticks his head far enough in the sand.

I'm glad that Senator Franken is good enough and strong enough to lead discussions on these important issues.

Doggonit, I like him.  Glad you do, too.

"Senator what if there is strong evidence of wrongdoing with Russia."

"If there is compelling, irrefutable evidence that Trump has acted in an illegal manner with a foreign power I will use every legal phrase and excuse to obfuscate and delay until Trump's re-election. Then and only then will I drop all investigations because the people have spoken."

FTA: "...the recent bombshell report purportedly from a former British intelligence officer that revealed President-elect Donald Trump is being compromised by the Russians."

Fixed that for them. Does anyone remember Dan Rather and the Bush record in the national guard? Jumping on unsubstantiated things hurts the left. Wait for it to be investigated, Raw Story.

/On the other hand, Franken wording it as a hypothetical is absolutely correct

2017-01-11 11:01:07 AM  
I saw some of that last night.  Franken was good.  Sessions, predictably, pleaded utter cluelessness to just about everything.  "I'm not aware...", "I wasn't briefed...", "I'm not familiar with that..."  Lather, rinse, repeat with the volume at 11 until everyone goes away.

I did not know the internal DNC emails and whatnot were classified.  I have been reassured that there were no classified info in the emails.  There is a slight difference in your simplification.

People said that about Elizabeth Warren this time around.

Would you swap her for trump, if you could?  Or, if you got your hands on Obama's magical time machine, would you throw Warren in the VP spot instead of the boring-as-farj tim Kaine and take another shot?

Meh, I'd say he "dismissed" it, rather than discredited it. The attempt was made to undermine.

It is completely IN SCOPE to question a potential Attorney General about current event hypothetical situations, particularly where it would cause them to be in conflict with the POTUS.  Sessions has been lying his ass off, which is disgusting. He hasn't heard about the leaks and purported compromise? Bullshiat. He hasn't lived in a cave for the past 3 months.

Not only that but he just posts a link to a "video" of the "beat down" and doesn't go into specifics of what laws the DoJ broke. And I ain't watching shiat of Cruz and his pathetic ass.

I wouldn't even go that far. Tailgunner Ted's entire premise rests upon his belief that the Federal Government has no power or authority to protect the Constitutional Rights of individual citizens from state or corporate abuses of those rights.

No.

I like Al Franken, but this business of electing presidents from TV needs to be stomped out, not perpetuated.

After this administration is finished mucking things up I want the next president to be a professional, career farking politician, someone who has been in Washington and out of the private sector for decades.
