Is the sudden pile-on of Democrats for Franken's resignation a political move to tip the outcome of the Alabama senatorial election next week in their favor?

The Democrats are playing to gain a seat in the Senate. It costs them nothing to throw Conyers and Franken under the bus, because those two will be replaced by people who vote exactly like them. If, however, with their hasty show of righteous indignation less than a week before the election, they can swing the Alabama election against Moore, they gain a seat in the Senate.

The Republicans, for their part, will try to get Moore elected, and then toss him out after an ethics probe, to be replaced by another Republican. Stalemate in that case.

Of course. Democrats didn't listen, when Bill and Hill's posteriors were on the block. At that time, it was a 'vast, right-wing conspiracy'. biggrin smilie

Senator Gillibrand would agree with you.

Of course, not all Democrats agree with Gillibrand. biggrin smilie

"Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons' endorsements, money, and seat. Hypocrite," he wrote. "Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries. Best of luck." [said a Hillary aide]

Of course! Franken was martyred to make it uncomfortable to seat Moore - if he should win next week.

Moore's situation is very different than the dozens of others recently taken down for abuse of women. The timing of the accusations is remarkably convenient first of all. The fact that the accusers waited nearly 40 years to speak up adds to the level of suspicion. And, Moore has been steadfast in his denunciation of the accusations and has been a long time public servant with no blemishes on his record.

Still, to save the country from daily beatings from the biased media, I think it would be cool if Moore announced his retirement on the stage during his acceptance speech and the governor announce his Republican replacement in one fell swoop. That might take some breath away from democrat complainers, maintain status quo in the Senate.

I just bet ya, the onslaught of daily career ending accusations will come to a screeching halt. [Cuz, the democrats never gave a rats butt about abused women anyway. It's about appearances, and political power.]

Yes, Bud, there may very well be an agreement for Moore to step down if he's elected. Maybe that's what got the Trump endorsement and the RNC campaign funds started again.

Yes, Republicans usually aren't that slick.

Maybe Bill would act as a consultant for them, but he comes at a high price, something like $500,000/hour.

Still, maybe he would work for a little less. I understand his gigs have become scarce lately. biggrin smilie

I think it's called political expediency, and yes, I suspect the Democrats are trying to paint themselves as the party who will stand up for women. I'll be surprised thought if it has much of an impact on the voters of Alabama.

It should be pointed out that Democrats have no monopoly on demagoguery. Shrewd politicians have manipulated the masses forever. Remember when Rahm Emanuel was chastised when he said to 'never let a good crisis go to waste'? I believe that accurately depicts the thinking of many in Washington.

Why should you even worry? The polls say it's very close, and difficult to predict.

And have you forgotten so soon that the polls last year said Hillary had an 80% chance of winning?
Election night was full of stunned Dem faces; they would like to avoid that in Alabama next week.

Democrats have morals

@VicZinc Democrats have morals

Oh, that's funny!
Anthony Weiner, Hillary Clinton, Sen. Robert Menendez, Jacob Schwartz, Bill Clinton, Jeffrey Epstein, John Conyers, Al Franken, Harvey Weinstein, John Podesta, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Rod Blagojevich, John Edwards, Ted Kennedy, Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Corrine Brown, Alcee Hastings, Alec Baldwin, Kathy Griffin, Barack Obama - just OOZING with morality!

@Budwick Oh, that's funny! Anthony Weiner, Hillary Clinton, Sen. Robert Menendez, Jacob Schwartz, Bill Clinton, Jeffrey...

As you know there is a difference between being a sinner and having no morals.

And there it is! That's what this is all about. A set up to toss someone under the bus. Hmmm, who shall it be?

Vic, the media exposed a handful of losers that had no business being there anyway. NOW democrats are the paragon of virtue?

@Budwick And there it is! That's what this is all about. A set up to toss someone under the bus. Hmmm, who shall it be?...

How do you keep going from "moral" to 'paragon of virtue'.

Go ahead bud, cast the first stone.

@Budwick OK vic - Democrats have suddenly discovered morality?

Not sudden. Hope the rest of you non-democrats get some some.

Start with love "your brother as yourself" then go to "judge not least you be judged."

@VicZinc Oh. Didn't realize that John Conyers was "all democrats"

Oops - Vic is parsing words again!
You know, Vic! The guy that said "Democrats have morals".

@VicZinc Not all. Just the ones I respect.

Not all?

Not all words are parsed?
Not all democrats have morals?

No, it's gotta be the word thing. Of Course not all democrats have morals! It might be kind of hard to find a moral democrat, but I'm sure there must be a few. Probably not in Washington, but I'm sure someplace.

@Budwick Oops - Vic is parsing words again! You know, Vic! The guy that said "Democrats have morals".

Democrats discovered morals only recently, and then only for obvious political purposes.

They knew perfectly well what had been going on for decades, and all they did was establish slush funds to use taxpayer dollars for hush-money settlements. In fairness, Republicans were in on that too.

Nothing like bipartisanship, when common interests are involved. biggrin smilie

@VicZinc Nice 20 years and 40 years. Got one from the 50s?

Nope, none from the 50s, at least none in the Senate.

But you evidently selectively forgot this one:

Yep. Takes ethics investigations and special councils to get a repub to step aside.

@VicZinc Yep. Takes ethics investigations and special councils to get a repub to step aside.

It took investigations for Democrats too, Vic, and of course in Bill's case, even that wasn't enough. The Senate Democrats circled the wagons and saved his posterior for him. biggrin smilie

Although now, Senator Gillibrand is saying Bill should have resigned. biggrin smilie biggrin smilie

http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/17/p...ton/index.html

And even today, not all Democrats agree with her. From the CNN article:

"Philippe Reines, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, blasted Gillibrand on Twitter over the remarks.
"Over 20 yrs you took the Clintons' endorsements, money, and seat. Hypocrite," he wrote. "Interesting strategy for 2020 primaries. Best of luck." "

Of course, had you done that, you would never have gotten another cent of campaign money from the DNC, and you surely would have faced a heavily-funded primary challenge when and if you sought re-election.

Democrats don't like mavericks who disobey the marching orders.

You mean hotter minds, Vic. biggrin smilie

And of course the political motivation for this sudden, new-found morality is obvious. In the short term, it is aimed at tipping the Alabama election in the Democrats' favor, netting them a Senate seat. In the longer term, it is aimed at Trump, who has his own history of abusing women.

I think if Hillary had been President, none of this would have happened; Franken and Conyers would have still been happily in office, doing the things they have always done, and the Democrats keeping mum, as usual. biggrin smilie biggrin smilie

It took a political calculation for them to find their long-lost hearts and souls, namely how best to go after Trump. One reason Hillary lost is that too many women voted against her.

You should be on your knees in prayer, Vic, thanking God for the Trump presidency, or there's no telling when, if ever, the Dems would have found their hearts and souls. biggrin smilie biggrin smilie biggrin smilie

Indeed they are.

They're looking after their political interests, just as the Democrats are looking after theirs.

@Budwick It tells me that they don't believe Jones can win.

No, they don't believe that any Democrat can win in the state of Alabama.

@dru18 No, they don't believe that any Democrat can win in the state of Alabama.

Never mind that Jones is the only democrat running in Alabama.

They haven't had a Democrat win that state in over two decades, Budwick. That would have been easy for you to have looked up.

And the last thing that Alabama wants is for the DNC to come down and tell them who to vote for. They are very smart for staying out of the whole thing.
