James D.

YEah, Dave, that's a real shocker, isn't it?

Threadkiller

Appalled once explained that talking about women who willfully let you touch them was illegal.


daddy

Happy "Grab 'em By the Pussy Tits" Day!

Yip, yip, yip, yip, Yippie! Rush on an opening monolog roll!!!

Good Morning!

henry

TM, the NYT style guide (aka bathroom stall graffiti) says If a Dem does it, "coincidence", anyone else, "collusion."

daddy


Since Hillary and the MSM made her staffers apologize, certainly Franken must grovel.

Appalled

Tk:

Um, what was that?

If that’s how you funhouse mirrored comments on Trump’s Billy Bush tape, I said he was describing sexual assault, not that he was committing it by talking.

As for Franken — he now has a problem. Wonder if there other instances. Yeah, 99.99% probability there are.

Steve Earle Song Ideas

'As for Franken — he now has a problem'

Nobody wants to go to jail.

daddy

Rush says if they give Franken a pass, how do they continue to double-down on Moore and Trump? What great news to wake up to.

Says we must believe the woman.

It's also great that we have Al Franken on tape talking about young Rob Reiner being redacted in the redacted by his father's adult male friends.

Davod

Just imagine all the victims at Al Franken's Air America.

Appalled

daddy:

They won't give Franken a pass. If they want Trump's hide (and they do), they can't give him a pass.

Plus, you just KNOW there's more.

daddy

Here's Franken and his good friend Harvey Weinstein.

henry

They are giving Franken a pass (it was a trifle compared to the illustrious lion of the senate)

.@SenWhitehouse tells reporters: “You guys need to find something more interesting” when asked about Franken allegations.

pagar, a bacon, ham and sausage supporter

I could be wrong but IMO, Franken's apology seens to be for the first incident in the article, so the Lady has already told him she wants nothing to do with his sexual advances. That should make his groping her while she is asleep much worse IMO.

daddy

Here's Al and good friend Kevin Spacey.

BTW, viewers will recall that the 3rd guy in this pic, Rob Lowe, was guilty of having sex with a 16 year old.

henry

Franken gets tied to Dem 2018 prospects:

Vicki McKenna @VickiMcKenna
1m

Will Tammy Baldwin immediately denounce her cretin cohort Al Franken for groping a sleeping woman...and give back is PAC money?

Jack is Back!

Larry Flynt is spending his reward money on the wrong guy.

jimmyk

If they want Trump's hide (and they do), they can't give him a pass.

If the Dems are willing to throw Franken under the bus to get Moore, it's not a fair trade, since if Franken steps down, he'll get replaced by a Dem; if Moore loses, we get a Dem. Heads they win, tails we lose.

As to getting Trump, I'd say that ship has sailed.

GUS

Henry??? Franken doesn't like homosexuals already.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

--They won't give Franken a pass.--

You think they're going to expel him or demand he resign?
Of course not, so yeah, compared to Moore they'll give him a pass. They already are.

daddy

Now Rush is reading Franken's comments made about how brave were the women who came out and told us about Weinstein's terrible behavior. Boy, Franken sure was full of imperious moral rectitude when he was damning Weinstein and lauding those brave victim gals.

Rush is having a field day simply reading comments from the Left all hollering about how terrible such behavior are. Now Rush is saying that Melanie Morgan, a Bay Area TV host from the past that DrJ and I know of, has just sent Rush a note saying she is coming forward to say that Franken stalked her in @ the year 2000 and she will come out with details shortly.

Here's Melanie:

Ha Ha!!!!!!!!

Threadkiller

You said that what Trump did was illegal. You were wrong.

As usual.

Jane - not "in"

Al says he's "ashamed".

Jane,

He's ashamed he got caught.

Boy, that photo evidence is GOLD!

Extraneus

I said he was describing sexual assault, not that he was committing it by talking.

Correct. You said that grabbing a willing woman's pussy was sexual assault.

Appalled

Ignatz:

Depends how many of these there are, and who comes forward. I doubt we stop at one. This guy has the mouth and temperament of an entitled jerk. This isn't a 19 year old trying to steel a kiss -- this is a guy who thinks he's entitled to get it on with a Playboy model, just because.

As people note above, if Franken goes, he is replaced by a Democrat. That makes him an easy pawn to sacrifice.

daddy

Rush is now going after Brian Stelter of CNN who earlier today damned Rush for not going after Roy Moore. Rush is turning the tables on Stelter demanding that by Stelter's own rules and comments made earlier Stelter must, by the end of the day, demand that Al Franken resign or Stelter is the worlds biggest hypocrite:)

Yip, yip, Yippie!!!!

henry

OK... lets put it under that $15 million never talk about it plan we have in Congress:

Joe Perticone @JoePerticone

Just in, Al Franken says in statement: “I am asking that an ethics investigation be undertaken, and I will gladly cooperate.”

pagar, a bacon, ham and sausage supporter

"“We do know there is about $15 million that has been paid out by the House on behalf of harassers in the last ten to 15 years,” she said."

Unless SHE keeps a running total in her head, that $15 million figure must be available some where.

We are talking a 10-inch long worm, here. YIKES!

daddy

Has Al Franken's wife come out and stood by her man, yet?

Why or why not? Where are the TV cameras shoved in her face? Where's Gloria Allred?

Appalled

Extraneous:

Trump assumes that all women he just grabs are willing -- or at least that's what he seems to be saying. You could never send him to jail for that tape, but if someone claims that Trump assaulted them by grabbing -- that tape is Exhibit 1.

But let's leave all of that for another day. (Why roil up the thread if everyone is enjoying Franken's disgrace).

Meanwhile in the late, great state of Alta-California...John Phillips reports that the state is rolling in $$$ to settle sexual harassment her-ass-ment, discrimination and retaliation claims--more than $580,000 in past five years. He calls it The Perverts Caucus and observes:

One-party rule created an animal house atmosphere where the dominant donkeys have been allowed to act like, well asses. And to be fair, if the GOP were in power they might protect their own in the same way. But that's bad for women, bad for good government and bad for taxpayers.
When there is no balance of power, there is also--clearly--no accountability.

GUS

The CLOWN continues to spin like the fool he is.

pagar, a bacon, ham and sausage supporter

"Speer described a one-sided investigative process that does everything to protect members of Congress — and little to protect the rights of victims: “Right now it takes almost 90 days to be able to file a complaint. And before actually going through the mediation, you have to sign a non-disclosure agreement. And then, you are not represented by counsel, but the harasser is represented by the House of Representatives general counsel.”
From the link in my 1:01 Post.

Wonder if the ethics committee is scheduled to meet before Franken is up for reelection?

Appalled

That looks like assault to me.

daddy

From Miss Marple's 12:47 on the Felony charges brought against the son and daughter of Arizona Senator Jeff Flake:

The ...Flakes have been charged with multiple felony and misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty after the dogs were believed to have suffocated while being kept in a small room at the kennel.

The (21) dogs' bodies were found crammed into the 9-by-12-foot room on June 21.

The Flakes maintained the dogs chewed through an electrical cord, cutting off power to an air-conditioner to the room.

40 years after I first heard of the guy, something funny that involves "comedian" Al Franken might finally happen.

Clown

Miss Marple the Deplorable

daddy,

Let me tell you something. Anyone who treats dogs like that deserves jail time.

21 dogs in a 9 x 12 room is criminal, even if there was working air conditioning. If the cord was chewed through, it means that they were put in there in unsafe conditions and no one was checking on them.

People who treat dogs like this are bad people. This reflects on their upbrining and I am not inclined to be the least bit forgiving about this.

Same guy who was on the "he's not presidential" bandwagon about President Trump.

Dave (in MA)

That's a photoshop.

Jack is Back!

You know Rush is enjoying this since Franken is the guy who wrote the dissing of Limbaugh book.

pagar, a bacon, ham and sausage supporter

Menendez will probably be back in the Senate in time to vote to expel Moore.

Dave (in MA)

You can tell, because Franken wears Pampers.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Al Franken is currently #1 on trending on my Twitter feed.

jimmyk

I'm sure his Depends are getting a workout right about now.

daddy

Anyone who treats dogs like that deserves jail time.

Absolutely Miss M. The Flake's are despicable people.

Rush is now reading stuff that people are finding on the web about Al Franken doing similar stuff in the past, and he is wondering how come we did not know all of this stuff before. He's been a totally shitty person for forever.

Davod

Daddy. Franken got away with a lot because he was a comedian. I bet everyone thought the picture was part of a comedy sketch, instead of a candid camera shot.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

daddy,

I agree. Just goes to show you how the "vetting" in the press works if you're a democrat. That comment on homosexuals alone made in that Harvard Crimson interview in 1976 should have done him in.

maryrose

Daddy:
I am not surprised about the Menendez trial.
However, I think they will encourage him to retire when his term ends.

Davod

"Al Franken is currently #1 on trending on my Twitter feed."

Any press is good press. He will be on SNL this week.

GUS

My Bro is in Pelosi's office. I don't know why yet.

If you read the gropee's statement, the photo looks even worse--it's retaliation for giving him the cold shoulder after he shoved his tongue in her mouth.

henry

GUS, is he delivering a warrant? (one can hope)

daddy

Leeann Tweeden on FOX live doing a fine interview. She is not a bimbo by any means, and she has said that she has a had phone call from another woman saying something similar has happened to her from Franken.

I hope others saw it, and I think it's worth mentioning how much more strong and honest and impressive Leanne's presser was than that crap from the Nelson woman with the Yearbook and Gloria Allred.

Appalled

Well, my spouse (the Dixie Progressive) says Franken’s got to resign and go. “We have zero credibility if he doesn’t”. Just a data point in today’s Schadenfreude.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

House is now voting on the tax bill.

pagar, a bacon, ham and sausage supporter

maryrose, IMO, he should retire today.

jimmyk

daddy, how's momma? Did she break anything, or was it just a bruise?

BlueOx

Al Franken stayed at the home of a close relative of mine when she was in the state legislature and he was touring the state during his first senate run.

She tried to get him to discuss health care policy. His response, "Take me waterskiing with your boat".

Her husband said Franken was the biggest jerk he had ever encountered.

henry

As if celebrating the "Lion of the Senate" or the "Kleagle of the Senate" etc left the progressives with any credibility to lose.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

GUS,

Luckily I wasn't drinking my water when I saw that post. LOL!

daddy

Thanks for asking, JimmyK.

Momma, to put it bluntly, is an exceptionally tough gal:) She is limping hard and in obvious pain, but somehow she seems to thrive on that stuff. She thinks she may have a hairline fracture so I say please go get an X-Ray and find out and she says she doesn't have the time to do that since I'm gone. So she is tough as nails but at the same often frustrating. I'm home tomorrow for a day then off again for a week so hopefully she will have scheduled a Dr's appointment when I'm home for 24 hours, but hardheaded redheads do what hardheaded redheads do. If Franken pulled any Leeann Tweeden lechery on her she would bite his tongue off and deck him. I'll keep you posted.

GUS

Bro is protecting Qatar foreign minister. He has meetings with Congress leaders.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Very interesting, GUS. Qatar seems to be doing some stealth stuff despite their current rep as supporting terror, which makes me wonder why we still have a base there if that's true.

Probably we shouldn't say any more.

daddy

Yippie! FOX reports that Melanie Morgan will make a statement later today. Here's a bit of background on Melanie Morgan for those who don't know her---former Lib turned Conservative: Melanie Morgan Retires From Morning Radio

sbw

I can say no more.

Pretty interesting that none of the reliable Dem mouthpieces in MN (Star Tribune, WCCO, etc.) have the Franken groping picture on their main pages. You have to click through to the article and scroll waaay down to find it.

henry

Flake family values. His son is a fine social media type.

Does the passed version of the tax bill include removal of state/local tax deduction?

I'd like to see that one get through, though it would cost me personally.

jimmyk

If Franken pulled any Leeann Tweeden lechery on her she would bite his tongue off and deck him.

I'd pay good money to see that. Can we arrange a sting operation?

daddy

Cool and fun tale, Frau. Thanks for the education.

What is that German word for a face that looks like it needs a fist in it?

henry

Jim, no one knows. Besides the Senate doesn't. This is standard Congressional three card monty between the chambers and the reconciliation. We may never know what is in it.
