Didn't Roger Stone have a hand in this plot?

The right wing hit squad did their job brilliantly. They got other Democratic pols to witch hunt Al into resignation, taking out ONE OF THE MOST BRILLIANT DEMOCRATIC MINDS we had in D.C.!

It was infuriating because, as an average loyal DU reader, DU provided me with enough links to determine the entire plot was based on BULLSHIT. And I had to watch Senate Dems obediently follow the path set forth by republic dirty tricksters, who are excellent at what they do and Dems naively take the bait......repeatedly.

I hope Al goes on to write editorials, do talk shows and be a talking head on the news show circuit. Chit chat with the Morning Joe Crew and Rachel kind of stuff.

I don't like supporting good Dems that stupidly kangaroo court one of our best out of the Senate. They got totally p'owned.

My hero since the Oct 16, 1971 Stony Brook late show.

to put it succinctly, I liked his values as much as his music. Learned a lot, enhanced my critical thinking skills. An inspirational national treasure that took a stand against conservatives and televangilists aggressively in his lifetime and art. There were times in his life where his raw courage and absolute faith in his principles and basic intelligence were awe inspiring to me.

I like that

Definate Facebook Wall meme material.

Ironies: The snowball that triggered the smears about Franken was engineered in some of not most parts, by Roger Stone. I have to research how many other Atwateresque ratfucking plots Rogers been a part of since his involvement with Nixon Republicans in Nixon's time? Ratfucking is his life's work. If there were justice he'd be pay per view Khashoggi-ed.

If my memory is accurate, Al's questioning of Jeff Sessions about something I forgot, caused Sessions to recuse himself from the Russia Investigations. Where would Democracy be right now if that had not happened?

The witch hunt railroading he was victim of is ugly and a great example of, from the vantage of recent history, a really fucking STUPID thing to do! What the hell did Dems gain by having done this? Was justice well served? In my own unwise youth, I've done much worse, relatively. Al's life is testimony to his honorable family man, of the people, serve the best interests of as many people as possible upstanding citizen would make a responsible babysitter you could feel safe leaving your kids with kinda guy.

I've liked Al since Franken and Davis SNL days. Got some of his books, donated to his Senate Campaign. Overjoyed and inspired by his performance in the Senate.

Articles like this could change the course of history for the better yet again. Americans need to know just how cruel and inhuman these Trump monsters really are!

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland.
