If This is What Zero Tolerance Looks Like . . .

we should all be very concerned and prepare for an onslaught of accusations, particularly against those who strongly voice opposition to the Majority. I tip my hat to Senator Franken. He's going out as a gentleman, saving his scorn (that bitter irony) for Donald Trump's many accusations and Access Hollywood tape expose' and Roy Moore, accused of tweener/child molestation.

It's clear to me now that this decision was made before the Democratic pile-on yesterday, that Franken had telegraphed his decision earlier, allowing his colleagues to take the 'high road' of moral superiority. A poster suggested this earlier in another thread, a bit of political theater in the making.

My prediction?

This is going to come back and bite us in the ass. A public execution might be satisfying in the moment, give the True Believers a sugar high. We're so righteous! But there are sinister forces at play here, those that will do anything to tip the scales in 2018. The way the Dem leadership handled this was short-sighted at best IMHO.

Eating our own is never a good thing. This is a sad day.

3. Yup!

But God dammit, we've taken the moral high road and sacrificed one of our own.

That'll teach 'em!

I think this is what happened yesterday, also.

I need it to play out a bit more before suggesting what the future results will be.

4. BREAKING: Dem Senators spotted buying horsewhips and shovels to dig up dead Senators


Why let a little thing like death slow this media moment for grandstanding and moralizing?!

5. They will be shrieking: "THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS FULL OF MOLESTERS!!!!"

 

.... for years if not permanently.

This is what the GOP does when someone "takes the high road." They seek any opportunity to use it against them for their own good.

Not a one of them is fazed in the least that this makes their party of liars look bad. Rather, they are crowing that this tactic worked, and they will hammer it again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again.

7. And yet . . .

we never learn. Because we still want to believe that the Republican Party is a rational group, rather than a party that is suffering from mad cow disease. It's a terminal condition but the infected can do a hell of a lot of damage before they expire.

We're witnessing the wreckage right now. In fact, they're trying their best to take us all down in the process. That we cannot allow which means we must be smarter and more nimble. Falling prey to dirty tricks is going in the opposite direction
