FRANKEN: "That is not the norm for a President of the United States, or actually for a human being."

I really do love this man! He's captures the very essence of what it means to be a real Democrat!

4. Franken is dangerously disarming in his approach.

Smart, funny, folksy, yet street-wise, reasonable, but no pushover,
he represents the best of what Democrats have always been.

Thank you for your Franken posts, NurseJackie! Keep them coming. People need to know that he is one of the (new) faces of our party.

15. Disarming

is an excellent way to put it. I have talked to him twice on the campaign trail. He is good to have on your side.

6. Jake: "he's emerging as a real liberal hero" (some could say lion)!!

And there's Senator Franken again, with his down to earth, matter of fact way of saying trump is fucking crazy, and doing it with his homey hand gestures and facial expressions that say a lot more than his voice is saying.

"He's good enough, and he's smart enough, and doggone it people like him" - on BOTH sides of the aisle. Kind of reminds me of Jerry Seinfeld's television show mother - "how can anyone not like him?"

7. I love that he's focused on Trump's administration, policies, nominees. Too many people are...

... being deceived by those who claim that Democrats are the problem, or that the Democratic Party is "corrupt" or that the party is morally and intellectually bankrupt (or any of the other typical smears and innuendo and epithets... bla-bla-blah).

THE TRUTH IS THIS: Democrats and the Democratic Party will be the solution. At this point in time, the Democrats are the ones who need to come together to defeat the GOP and to fight this administration.

We must be united. Strength through unity. I question the motives of those who attack and seek to tear the Democratic Party apart. Those who attack and disparage the party accomplish nothing other than to weaken and distract... when we must be focused and stronger than ever before.

Yes indeed, Franken is this generation's Liberal Lion. (I'm loving that comparison more and more.)

9. Watched this in real time and Franken walked Tapper into brick wall after brick wall

Like an experienced cross-examiner, step by step, time after time, Frankin just led into making his (Frankin's) point. It was so exquisite and funny at the same time.

He's got great talent and appeal. "Dangerously disarming"--I like that!
