image for Don't Let Al Franken Resign
"This looks like an SNL script."

Democrats are eating their own. Forcing Senator Al Franken out of elected office due to improprieties performed before becoming a Senator or during a USO tour, appears to be a knee-jerk reaction to Harvey Weinstein's repetitive predatory behavior. Cleaning house is great, but this is a perfect example of throwing out the baby with the bathwater. Franken is the baby.

Democrats: You are reducing your numbers, and you appear to look like a bunch of do-gooders having forgotten that politics is the art of compromise.

Al Franken isn't a predator. Yes, another dumb selfie is a nuisance. It's also a "Shame on you," finger-wagging type reprimand. Dumb selfies and unsolicited kisses are not felonies. They don't warrant the punishment of: "Go directly to jail. Do not collect $200." And Franken's photo wasn't an Anthony Weiner type selfie.

Washington has bigger fish to fry like the whale sitting in the White House.

Editor's note: Mixed metaphor. Whales are mammals, not fish.

Washington has bigger fish to fry like the orange sockeye salmon sitting in the White House. A self-confessed predator, that fish: bragged he assaulted women; walked into naked teenaged girls dressing rooms; went after a married woman like a 'bitch'; and is presently supporting the accused pedophile running for the U.S. Senate from Alabama.

Pedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children.

Recently, President Obama described the United States as becoming Hitler-ish. He addressed the threat to democracy, world peace, women's rights, the environment, human rights - think of Puerto Rico - the judiciary and the intelligence community.

A greater travesty, (than unsolicited kisses and dumb selfies) was Mitch McConnell stopping President Obama from filling a vacancy to the U.S. Supreme Court. Where was Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's outrage then? And why should Mitch McConnell, who represents a state with half the population of New York City, yield that much power?

Al Franken is being drummed out of the Senate for a dumb selfie taken during a USO tour and unsolicited kisses.

Watch out when kissing someone at midnight on New Years.
