Roger Stone's laughing his ass off at how perfectly the Democratic Party leadership fell for his trap.

Governor Franken has a nice ring to it.

Seeing how he got Nixon and Trump in office, he's damn good at it.

So Trump should resign, too?

I'm sure eventually someone will explain exactly how this was a good idea.

Who am I kidding, they'll just get angry because people questioned the Party.

How about a honk instead of a ring ?

  This is BS.  Should have taken the GOP playbook and just denied.  Now we have Bachmann looking at taking his place?  Sad.

If Bachmann takes his seat then every single Democrat who knifed Franken in the back should resign in disgrace. And yes I understand who they were, but we can't have people that dumb in positions of authority.

I has a sad 😞

Although I do hope he runs for re-election, as the rumors have speculated.

Michelle Bachmann is considering running for his seat.

Hey dems, how is that purity test working out for you?
 
2018-01-02 07:47:46 PM  
Right thing to do.  I hope other politicians in his situation follow suit.

There's a huge overlap between the people who were shrieking "PURITY TESTS!!!" about any and all criticism of Democratic Party leadership, and the people who were saying "Franken's gotta go, investigation be damned."

They will, in November, when Democrats fail to take control of the Senate because the party was unable to hold Franken's seat.

Remember, without Franken nailing Jeff Sessions, there would be no Mueller investigation.  Pelosi doesn't even want it.  She wants to move on with more tax cuts for the rich, eroded civil liberties, and comically extreme far left positions on wedge issues that will make Cletus get off his ass and vote.

Funny how that works.

He's my hero. I hope to grab lots of butts and get away with it for decades. But on a bigger scale. Hundreds of butts at least. Good shaped ones too, top shelf buns. And maybe decades or centuries. My idol.
 
2018-01-02 07:56:44 PM  
Hope this was worth it if Michelle Bachmann ends up winning his seat. It was a bold move, Cotton.

A reasonable moderate republican really scares me in the special election.

Michelle Bachmann does not.

This article was published a week prior to Franken's first accusation:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2​0​17/nov/08/al-franken-big-tech-facebook​-amazon

I have the sneaking suspicion that somebody in big tech played a part in pressuring Franken's resignation.

It's Gillibrand's turn.
 
2018-01-02 07:59:47 PM  
He repeatedly said he didn't do it.  There was no reason for him to quit.

/Did Roy Moore ever concede or has Alabama moved on without him?


He never conceded, and the judge dismissed his voter fraud allegations with prejudice, which pretty much means that Roy Moore can never bring it up again. Doug Jones is the new Senator from Alabama. Signed, sealed, delivered. Just waiting on Pence to swear him in.

He likely wanted to stay until Gillibrand threw him to the face-eating leopards.
 
2018-01-02 08:05:38 PM  
As liberal as Minnesota tends to be, let's not forget that Franken's seat isn't considered 'safe', considering the margins he won by and the delayment in his seating by a concentrated GOP effort to delegitimize his victory. There is plenty of batshiat crazy evangelical derp in Minnesota, and if you think Michelle Bachmann is too crazy to be electable, just look at our current President. We didn't think he's make it out of the primaries, let alone the General. But here we are. Don't get too overconfidant, this is going to be a bloody battle to keep Franken's seat blue once his replacement is up for re-election.

Why do I get the feeling that's a better metric for when Trump is going to resign for sexual harassment than my Groundhog Day shtick.

I'm not too worried. It's part of Pence's job. Turtle guy said Doug Jones was going to be seated.

The important part is that you've already conceded defeat

That will definitely help

He got into politics from the media, I think he'd do well going back to the media.  MSNBC would give him a show tomorrow if he wanted it.  Or he could try to set up a liberal network again, or do something on the Internet.

And a competent Democratic party would have made sure that hoax stayed in the news in perpetuity. But here we are.

He should have taken the third option and joined the Republican Party and stayed in office to vote as a liberal.

Every single voter has a "purity test" of some sort. That is the biggest myth on Fark there is. Its just that their definition of pureness differs from others.

That's why I've considered myself more "anti-conservative" in my political mindset than liberal.l, because I'd never pass a liberal test.
