seen it on messageboards, and now heard it in the wild (cubicle farm, discussions about franken resigning and how moore doesn't need to step down)
well that was intense

just a hunch that if franken had denied all the accusations those people would still say he should resign

Beutler had some terrifying tweets yesterday about one of the endpoints of Republicans' responses to all this being Clarence Thomas' imminent retirement

Cernovich will probably lead the charge

this is a feedback loop for republicans that democrats are dirty and republicans are attacked with fake news (by dirty democrats).


None of the facts matter either way, Democrats are never going to win the moral high ground in the minds of Republican voters on any issue ever. If Moore admitted it and apologized and Franken denied, well, then Moore would be the humble and reformed hero and Franken would be the liar.

For example, I don't buy that Franken is dragging Jones down; Republicans just fixate on whatever argument the dark lords of the movement have decided to push on a given day. If it wasn't Franken it would be something else. Chasing the argument of the day, as if they are things that can be won with facts and logic, is why Democrats are permanent losers.

None of this is to defend Franken of course, merely an observation about how despairing it is to watch Democrats try to subject these things to rational analysis.

I think all of those comments are troll comments making fun of those nonexistent people at this point.

it's basically the end result of republicans being a bunch of bad faith assholes; they assume everyone is arguing in bad faith and nobody really cares that much about the sexual harassment/assaults
