    Comment on Al Franken Announces Resignation From The Senate Amid Sexual Harassment Allegations by HarvardLaw92 /Link

    @<a href="#comment-2263428" rel="nofollow">Daryl's other brother Darryl</a>: Know what makes somebody an effective representative? Being seated. You guys are forgetting mission one of any political party - gain political power, at any cost, and maintain it, at any cost. The majority of these accusers were anonymous, and they’ll magically disappear now quicker than snow in Arizona. Short version? This was a political attack. An orchestrated one, and we were too busy clutching pearls and reaching for smelling salts to do what we should have done - punch back. Hard. It’s how you say “stop”, and at the very least it gives your opponent pause the next time he’s thinking of pulling that stunt again. It’s weakness, nothing more, and as distasteful as many here will undoubtedly find hearing that, here in the real world a whole lot of people still despise weaklings. Why should they trust us to fight for them when we can’t even fight for ourselves? The party had a golden opportunity here, and it straight up blew it. Gillibrand is being hauled over the coals by the state party about this one. Maybe she’ll learn. Politics is a contact sport, so either suit up and intend to win, or get used to getting beaten. Those are the party’s options.
