Wonder what Al Franken is doing?

eurotrader: Wonder what Al Franken is doing?


I would take him over her anyway. I would take him over anyone. Including Warren. I actually do not want Warren to be Biden's veep. I farking cannot stand the evil farker that is Joe Biden and if Warren went as his veep, it would prove that she is corrupt too. I want at least one good person left, even if she is no longer in the race, to be able to vote for.

and fark you, fark you hard, and fark you til you die, it's MY vote and quit farking with me over it.

Joe Biden was a farking setup by the DNC from the godamn start and I still think it's bullshiat and a rigged game.
 
2020-03-23 11:50:42 AM  
Why scratch her? Her husband will be dead or recovered in a couple weeks.
 
2020-03-23 11:54:32 AM  
Why was she being considered anyway? Not exactly the most inspiring or qualified of the potential picks.

I mean, I like her as a Senator very much. She does a solid job and is very tough in questioning. I'm just not sold on her as VP.

Whatever.... none of that matters. I just hope her husband survives.

he doesnt have to announce till the summer.

Should have been Hillary's choice for VP in 2016. To parry Trump, the Dems needed a comedian foil, and Franken would have been perfect for that job.

Joe's got several attractive options for VP
 
2020-03-23 12:30:37 PM  
I can't stand Amy Klobuchar, but I don't wish ill of her. I hope her husband has a speedy recovery.

Why would making her VP change anything? It's not like he's doing any campaigning whatsoever.
 
2020-03-23 12:39:41 PM  
Meanwhile, Minnesota's Lt Governor just had her brother Die from CoronaVirus, and our Governor is 14 days self-isolating after people close to him tested positive.

Is this in Minnesota? The stammering yam said that the hoax virus hates cooler temperatures.

Being white and not a woman, therefore ineligible.
 
2020-03-23 12:43:19 PM  
I know you mean well, subby, but white Amy Klobuchar and her white hsuband was never on the white list of people to be called soon.

Warmer temperatures.
 
2020-03-23 12:46:58 PM  
I dunno. A woman political figure, who was known to have had and survived the C19 infection and to be no longer herself infectious might be a very cautious choice for Joe Biden to make.

Can't stand her, either.  Don't wish ill upon her but she better not get all "binder throwy" at the docs if the don't prioritize her husband as "Number 1 patient".  He should be enter the triage protocol just like everyone else.

She can probably swing Iowa  and Wisconsin to Biden. It's only 15 or so Electoral votes, but it's 15 more than a lot of other choices would bring.

You're aware there's a "triage protocol" for the rich/powerful, which is separate from that which is for us plebs, right?

Actually I just want Warren to stay a firebrand in the Senate. Personally speaking, pick someone from the House. One seat there isn't as dangerous as a Senate seat.
 
2020-03-23 1:03:14 PM  
I'm hoping she doesn't have it.
 
2020-03-23 1:05:36 PM  
Klobuchar isn't perfect but she's a good senator. I always vote for her, and will do so again.

But damn, I miss Franken...

So I just received an update from the studio, and it is as follows:

Interesting take... Not sure we'll need them, but I'm paranoid as f*ck and want every EC vote we can lock down.

You're right, none of the others come with net positive EC math. We'll see who he picks. If he's smart he'll bring ALL of the potentials out on the trail and make it a several month long process until the convention. Stirs up more hype, debate and coverage.

There's a lot of that going around.  The latest is trying to dunk on Warren for missing the vote to vote to vote (technically, the motion to have a cloture vote) last night to try and cover for Sanders missing the actual cloture vote.  It's.... definitely a technique.

FWIW, while I do find it ironic that Rand Paul tested positive for COVID-19 after holding up the bill, the truth of the matter is that viruses don't wear MAGA hats nor are they passionate and dedicated liberals. So I'm not going to wish the virus on anyone, even Paul, because unlike people, viruses don't discriminate.

Further said: Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Those idiots who think COVID-19 is some liberal hoax and go out and party and eat in public and end up getting it were tempting fate by playing with dynamite and it exploded in their face.

Here is the thing. If you're an adult, and you have a fever of 100°F for more than 2 days. You call your doctor. Immediately. This is true even without the coronavirus threats. You're not a kid anymore.

So she's on Maddow now, says her husband locked himself in the apartment and didn't go anywhere but the grocery store. He has pneumonia and is only 52 years old. This shiat is getting scary now.
