As the #MeToo cleansing rolls on, Al Franken just announced that he would step down from his Senate seat after mounting pressure from his own party over being a prick and a pervert.
John Conyers announced that he would not seek re-election after he lost support from his party (including Nancy Pelosi who initially defended him). To keep the gravy train in the family he immediately indorsed his son for his seat.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (who took over Hillary's old seat with the help of the Clintons) recently found her moral indignation and declared that yes, Bill Clinton should have resigned when he had his inappropriate “relations” with a White House intern.
One might think that the Democrats (and the left) have found some moral high ground in their support of abused women. You would be wrong.
Ask yourself one question regarding these men (and the many other leftist) thrown under the bus after decades of callous, abusive, even criminal behavior. What are the consequences to the Party for cutting them loose?
Al Franken's seat will be filled by just another leftist nut.
John Conyers' seat will be filled by just another leftist nut; possibly his son.
Kirsten Gillibrand already has the seat she wants (that was gifted by the Clintons). The Clintons no longer have anything to offer her. Now she and many in the party just want the Clintons to go away.
As usual... it's all about appearance over substance. And they hope to use this appearance to hang the GOP who had the gall to elect Trump and may elect Moore (from Alabama).
I guess I'm OK with that. When it comes to the left we'll have to settle (and be grateful) for justice when we get it; no matter how delayed or disingenuous.
