I honestly tried. I cruised Freeperville to try to find something that wasn’t crowing-over-Al-Franken and had to shut it off after 3 minutes.
So instead, I penned this:
On Senator Al Franken and the accusations…
So-called conservatives are running around on social media hooting like howler monkeys. They’re not concerned with harassment issues, or they wouldn’t have condoned Donnie Darko’s “grab them by the pussy”.
It’s just locker room stuff, after all. Or tour-bus stuff.
Leaving alone the FOX news connection and the interesting fact that her “bombshell” was spoken of by the Stone people before it was spoken of by her – that aside, the whole thing reeks of right-wing hypocrisy.
If Trump had been accused of this behaviour, it would have been dismissed as boyish hi-jinks. Hell, if Trump had even been over to the Middle East and Afghanistan a tour to raise troop morale (instead of dodging the draft so he could sit safely over here and enrich himself), they’d be calling him a selfless hero for even considering going.
Trump’s supporters aren’t really concerned about women being harassed because, after all, they all have it coming. They ALL have it coming.
Just ask them. Let’s start with Newt Gingrich and work our way down to Mark Foley.
(Or maybe start with David Vitter and work our way up to Ken Calvert)
All I’m really seeing now is a bunch of hooting and gibbering because they think they finally, at long last, got one on the scoreboard.
Thanks for listening. I’ll try it again next week.
