    I agree, but if this #Yes All The Bastards trend keeps up, half the members of Congress will eventually have to resign.

    Ted Kennedy doesn’t know how lucky he is to be dead right now.

    • People who chose to wail to the skies for over a year over a joke Trump made about groping can’t just sit there quietly when there is photographic evidence of them groping people.

        I thought that he was not actually groping her and just pretending to in that picture when I saw it, and so have some other people. But now that I’ve looked at it again I think I was wrong. Very disappointing.

          That’s not really any better (unless the woman in question was just pretending to be asleep – that is unless they were doing the picture together as a joke…. which doesn’t seem to be the case).

    Yes. I do think Franken should resign at this point. It’s the only way Democrats can maintain any integrity on this issue.

    That being said, I don’t think Franken and Moore’s actions are moral equivalents. Franken was inappropriate with an adult woman; Moore raped children.

    It can’t be either/or, Franken should resign, and Moore go to jail.

  4. This “firestorm” exacerbated by “Hurricane Harvey” seems to be “burning” so much out of control there’s no chance in hell it’ll ever be “put out” any time soon.
