For all those looking to add to the Rightwing's slim majority in the Senate by tossing Franken out, a thought. Every male on the planet has, or will before croaking, kissed someone (mostly, females) who didn't really want to be kissed. No one should lose his job over that. There is a limit to punishment.

This is how stupid it gets.

A 6-year-old boy near Colorado Springs, Colorado, was suspended from school for kissing a girl on the hand. You read that correctly.

Al behaved like a 6-year-old, high on testosterone for sure. He isn't, on what we know, Roy Moore.

Maybe you don't (nah, that's bullshit...  make that fucking REFUSE TO!) get it, but this is sexual assault.

Forcing his tongue down a non-willing partners throat is sexual assault as well.

Defending sexual assault, like you are trying to do, is blatant chauvinistic asshole-ism.

Yup...  not a damn difference between you and Trump.

I also somehow doubt that you are going to find anyone who will agree with your sexist, paternalistic ass.

You DO realize that that is the same sorry-assed justification men have used to excuse rape and sexual assault for centuries, right?

BTW, is this defense of sexual assault because you are guilty of doing it?   Are you the Roy Moore of OS???

Clear as a bell Amy has this right. Franken assaulted the woman and it's unacceptable. And over the next months we'll undoubtedly hear of more similar violations from the House and Senate.

-- Clear as a bell Amy has this right.

No, she doesn't.  she's trafficking in false equivalence, as the Right Wingnuts do.

the points of the post were clear;

1 - males (females too, though less so) troll for kisses, hugs, butt grabs, and the like all the time, just spend some late night time in a college bar

2 - Al Franken isn't Roy Moore

3 - the punishment should fit the crime

4 - I didn't, and don't, condone Al

5 - I do condemn draconian punishment for political purposes

the fact is unambiguous:  the American Mating Ritual is totally ambiguous, with the male defined as initiator/aggressor and the female as supplicant/acceptor.  except, of course, that signals are always more or less fuzzy and "assaults" happen all the time.  the issue is how to differentially treat serial offenders (Moore) and single/occasional offenders (Franken; the former from what I know as I type).  Moore is a pedophile, full stop and his punishment has to be more severe than Franken's.  the likes of SBA, as she so demonstrated, will apply false equivalence baldly for political purposes.  that must NOT happen.

and so, after doing e-mail before anything else, I just opened my browser, and what to my wondering eyes did appear??  not some reindeer, but Roger Stone:

"Hours before the allegations against Sen. Al Franken became public Thursday, Trump ally Roger Stone seemed to know they were coming."
