I have to weigh in on this Al Franken Situation. He’s the type of guy who went into politics to help people and to make this country a brighter place. Al’s probably the best hope for the Democratic Party, and this country!
The photo is funny. Different people have different senses of humor. The woman didn’t think it was funny; but that doesn’t mean Al’s a perve. I have to wonder why anyone would try to hurt someone like Al Franken?
Al Franken is a humanitarian.
Apparently he stole a kiss and she objected and he didn’t try that again. Also, why bring it up 8 years later? Are the Republicans afraid of Senator Franken? If so, they should step up their game, not try to hurt a man who’s a true servant to our country.
Also, who made up the phony Washington Post telephone tape?
I’m sick to death of political dirty tricks. A party that feels it has to stoop to scurrilous, deceitful pandering makes one wonder if they will represent our country that way? Can we trust anything?
All politicians need to remember they are public servants. If they don’t want to represent ALL the people, they should find a new profession. Selling shoes, perhaps!
Remember, President Harry Truman said, “You can’t get rich in politics unless you’re a crook.”
He also said, “Democrats work to help people who need help. That other party, they work for people who don’t need help. That’s all there is to it.”
There are always a lot of people so afraid of rocking the boat that they stop rowing. We can never get ahead that way.
Selfishness and greed, individual or national, cause most of our troubles.
The friendless, the weak, the victims of prejudice and public excitement are entitled to the same quality of justice and fair play that the rich, the powerful, the well-connected, and the fellow with pull thinks he can get.
I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in forty-seven, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo.
