40. Why Franken and Hill resigned are not important to Republicans.
Sun Jan 24, 2021, 08:25 PM
Jan 2021

What matters is they got rid of some Democratic legislators, by whatever means necessary.
They will circle the wagons around their own, no matter what the crime.
That's what Democrats need to learn, and adapt their political game to.
Rules are for Democrats.
Rules are merely obstacles to Republicans, but they can be ignored.
