    Thatís ridiculous. It will all go to retirement savings and higher education.

    This Jane Meyer article on Franken. Woof. She's a hacker's hack (her bullshit article on the Kochs MIGHT have something to do with my biases against her :) ), but the double standards she's employing when writing about Franken vs. writing about Kavanaugh. Wow.

    Here is the Meyer article on Franken, by the way. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2...-of-al-franken

    It is worth noting that Kavanaugh got the job and Franken lost his. At least if you're an accused Republican some of your own party, if not all of it, will stand behind you for due process. Not that there's any good outcome once these online riots start going.

    I'm not sure I've read the Kavanaugh articles she wrote, but she at least got this one right. Props to Mayor Pete for not cowering to the mob like Gillibrand. I think he'd find a lot of moderates happy to hear a Democrat willing to do so.

    The Dems only threw Franken under the bus in the first place because the timing coincided with the Roy Moore vote in Alabama. As soon as the votes were counted they started trying to rehabilitate Franken.

    I don't think Franken deserved to lose his seat, but it's precious to see guys like him get religion on due process AFTER they go through something like this.

    A hard learned lesson for sure. Here's to hoping it's something that spreads in the party, but I won't hold my breath. I saw many on twitter saying the writer just ended her career with that article.

    Kind of sad the majority of MSM had or felt compelled to explain what the Republicans were talking about during the Mueller testimony to their readers and viewers. Whether it was Misfud or Fusion GPS’ meetings with Natalia Veselnitskaya a day before and after the Trump Jr meeting (heck it appeared during Mueller’s testimony, he didn’t know who GPS Fusion was - sad). Not to say some things did or did not happen, the press should have a curiosity on all things in the Russia investigation. This is why I think there is a media bias because of what they chose not to report on or even investigate.

    The attached article does a much better job explaining my opinion.

    Are all of the Democratic presidential hopefuls planning to send out statements today about what a great guy Al Sharpton is? Donald Trump is a pretty epic troll.

    A sitting United States senator from Oregon literally helped an illegal immigrant who is 8 1/2 months pregnant get across the border in order for her to take advantage of our healthcare system.

    No words.
