    Bill Clinton: A Reckoning

    The party needs to come to terms with the fact that it was so enraptured by their brilliant, Big Dog president and his stunning string of progressive accomplishments that it abandoned some of its central principles. The party was on the wrong side of history, and there are consequences for that. Yet expedience is not the only reason to make this public accounting. If it is possible for politics and moral behavior to coexist, then this grave wrong needs to be acknowledged. If Weinstein and Mark Halperin and Louis C. K. and all the rest can be held accountable, so can our former president and so can his party, which so many Americans so desperately need to rise again.

    I was half expecting to see a Congress Heal Thyself thread after reading CNN's article on sexual harassment on Capitol Hill.

    If a similar backlash were to make standing politicians resign, I wonder how it would affect the balance of power.

    Edit: So which party has more members on the "Creep List"? The article said it was particularly a problem with those politicians who slept in their offices.

    Yet another article calling for a re-analysis of Bill Clinton:

    https://www.vox.com/policy-and-polit...insky-resigned

    Bill Clinton should have resigned
    What he did to Monica Lewinsky was wrong, and he should have paid the price.

    But Franken doesn't remember and said the photo wasn't funny... So it is all good.

    Franken said he does not remember the incident the same way but acknowledged the photo "wasn't" funny.

    To be fair, he didn't say he didn't remember the encounter, he just said he remembered it differently than the Accuser

    Of course he remembers it differently. He wasn’t the one being sexually abused.

    Kind of makes you want to kick him good in the crotch, and then just say "I remember it differently" when he reports it.

    Someone should set up in Lafayette Square and run all that on a loop on loudspeakers pointed at the White House.

    6 Creepy Things Donald Trump Has Said About Ivanka

    #6:

    When asked what he and his daughter both consider their favorite things, Trump answered, “I was going to say sex, but I can relate to [golf and real estate].”

    #5:

    “Ivanka posing for Playboy would be really disappointing… not really. But it would depend on what was inside the magazine…I don’t think Ivanka would [do a nude shoot] inside the magazine, Although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said that if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

    #4:

    “You know who’s one of the great beauties of the world, according to everybody? And I helped create her. Ivanka. My daughter, Ivanka. She’s 6 feet tall, she’s got the best body.”

    #3:

    “She’s actually always been very voluptuous… she’s tall, she’s almost 6 feet tall… she’s a real beauty.”

    #2:

    “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father….”

    #1:

    “Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?”

    Franken's history of objectifying and degrading women...

    Franken Pitched SNL Sketch About Drugging And Raping A News Anchor

    The recent allegations of sexual misconduct against Democratic Sen. Al Franken have eery similarities to a past sketch the former comedian proposed that involve drugging and raping a news anchor.


    In a 1995 “Saturday Night Live” rehearsal with staff writers, Franken openly pitched a joke involving drugging CBS “60 Minutes” anchor Leslie Stahl, then raping her. The account was captured by New York Magazine, which sat in on the rehearsal.
    [...]
    The 1995 account of the SNL skit was captured by New York Magazine which sat in on a rehearsal in which he dreamed up the idea of giving a sleeping pill to Stahl, then raping her.


    New York Magazine quotesd Franken as saying, “And ‘I give the pills to Lesley Stahl. Then when Lesley’s passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her.’ Or ‘That’s why you never see Lesley until February.'”


    Stephanie Schriock, the current Emily’s List president, served as Franken campaign manager for his 2008 run for the Senate.


    “Let me say if it was not for Stephanie Schriock I would not be standing before you as a United States Senator,” he told an overflow audience before the group’s 30th Anniversary gala in 2015.


    During his address before the activist women’s group, Franken ridiculed radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh and “countless other meatheads” for their poor treatment of women.


    He said their “views of certain ‘gender issues’ are somewhat at odds with ours.”
    http://dailycaller.com/2017/11/16/fr...a-news-anchor/


    "Objectifying women and degrading women has been a consistent theme of Al Franken's humor over the years," said Mark Drake, spokesman for the Minnesota Republican Party.

    lol. ^

    Also, I have to say I'm quite disappointed in Al Franken. Yes, I first knew him as a correspondent on Weekly Update w Dennis Miller (that's a trip) on SNL, but I have admired his work in the senate- especially taking the lead on DACA and things like that. Shit.
