    So much for fair use. When I clicked on the link I get “This video contains content from NBC universal, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.”

    I happen to be in the USA.

    I’m not crying any tears if Franken is gone, but we have a witch hunt going on. Men’s lives are being destroyed without a hearing based on accusations of event decades ago that can’t be proven or or shown to be false. This can’t end well.

    • RAH says:

      I’ll disagree. I see this as a sign of a further disintegration of Democrat party and the identity politics they have adopted as the basis for their electorate. As such it is going to be messy. How could it be otherwise? But it is just one more step towards an ever redder national map and a democrat party that is moving towards becoming nothing more than a regional party until it changes.

      The new will try and say that the democrats have purified themselves while the Republicans back Moore in AL. It won’t work. They are losing.

      • Kris Johanson says:

        it is delicious to watch…. at the moment anyway

      • Louis Hooffstetter says:

        I agree with both of you. When this is over, I think most of the bodies on the battlefield will be Democrats. But sadly, there will be collateral damage on both sides. I believe Garrison Keillor is an innocent victim whose long and wonderful career has been destroyed in an instant by overzealous witch hunters. (At least I sincerely hope so.)

        • Douglas Hoyt says:

          I used to know a woman who worked for Garrison Keillor. She said his personality in private was completely different from that in public. She said he tried to bed nearly all the women that worked for him. As a result, she left Minnesota, really ran away so as not to be around him.

        • Colorado Wellington says:

          Didn’t Garrison Keillor innocently say this during his long and wonderful career?

          “Those lousy holiday songs written by Jewish guys trash up America’s malls every year.”

          … Conservatives are “brown shirts in pinstripes”, “hairy backed swamp developers and corporate shills”, “freelance racists” and “Newts evil spawn”.

          And this?

          “Your eyes look dead and your scowl does not suggest American greatness so much as American indigestion. Your hair is the wrong color: People don’t want a president to be that shade of blond.”

          • gator69 says:

            Along with his charming and inclusive personality, Keillor has a face made for radio, and talent only government funding save.

  3. Steve Case says:

    The left in its non-stop quest to divide and conquer to gain power is now pitting men against women.

  4. Mark Fife says:

    Pretty interesting when the flag bearer for the Democrat Party, as God awful a failure as she is, along with other high profile profiteers proclaim we have to believe any woman who makes any accusation like this. Then you have prominent Democrats in power who become the accused. Bet they didn’t see that coming. If accusers must always be believed the other side of that equation yields the accused must always be treated as guilty. Obviously you can’t believe the accuser and the accused all at the same time.

    To yield such power to anyone, the ability to destroy by accusation without proof, is dangerous. Even if it knocks off a complete moron like Franken. Even if knocking Franken out of government is a net positive for this and all future generations.

    At least Paula Jones took Bill Clinton to court. That doesn’t prove anything but it does indicate she believed she could win in civil litigation. Bill paid her $850,000 to settle. That doesn’t prove guilt either. You still don’t know for sure. It is still a matter of who you believe.

    To bad we don’t have a media that could be trusted to investigate, gather what facts are verifiable, and present them in an unbiased manner. Too bad the process of clearing your name or establishing guilt is so laborious and costly. Engaging the official machinery would probably result in lawyers getting rich and not much else.

    There doesn’t seem to be a ready, all encompassing answer to these he said, she said type incidents.

    • Steve Case says:

      Engaging the official machinery would probably result in lawyers getting rich and not much else.

      Yes. This can’t end well.

    • Squidly says:

      Sorry, I’m not very sympathetic to Franken … We have pictures, we have admittance, we in fact have iron-clad proof.

      But I do believe this all can be a very slippery slope and we must ensure we have due process and not accusational process. I disagree with “anonymous sources” and such. I believe if you are to make such accusations, you must be identified to be considered credible. Otherwise, there must be iron-clad proof.

    • Squidly says:

      I am watching Newt Gingrich on Laura Ingraham’s show tonight, and he makes a whole lot of sense about the public lynching going on with the Democrats and Franken. The calls (and piling on) for Franken to resign are nothing more than a sacrifice. They are sacrificing Franken as a means of political “purification” (so they think anyway). They cannot leave Franken in office and then attack Roy Moore or Donald Trump. Newt is correct in all of this.

      However, he talks about due process for people like Franken. One problem with this, and the reason why Democrats will be successful with their current strategy, we have no “due process” when it comes to politicians. We The People have no representation in this “due process” as our politicians cover each other’s asses (when politically expedient to do so). Hence the reason why public lynching of characters like Franken are acceptable to the public. We don’t trust our government and we know full well that politicians will never see the same justice system that you and I do. So the only way for We The People to gain justice against people like Franken is through lynching.

      Unfortunately, in the near future, the Democrats are going to be able to capitalize on this. They are crushing many politicians (on both sides) and expect that in the long run, they will simply lose fewer soldiers on the battlefield than the Republicans. It is a tactic and a strategy. It may very well work, at least in the short term. The problem the Dumbocraps are going to have though, is that this tactic will eventually come around and bite them right in the ass. Dumbocraps are terrible long term thinkers. This strategy cannot possibly work for them in the long run. From now on all it will take are a few accusations against a politician that you don’t like and WHAM! .. you gotta remove them.

      Crazy times we live in!

      • I love hearing everything the Democratic and Republican party politicians say about each other. For 37 years this has been a source of entertainment, and Libertarian Candidates are now up 328% in vote totals. Is this a great country or what?

    • Dr Modo says:

      Bill said on live TV that he did not have sex with Monica Lewinski, then later she produces a “little blue dress” with semen stains from him.
      Proof enough for me. In Bill’s case, however, insofar as Monica was concerned, the sex was consensual.
      According to Hillary, the others were “bimbo eruptions”.
      And we know that she doesn’t lie.

      This is obviously one of the pitfalls when converting from Imperial to Metric!!!!!!
      These blokes can even convert Imperial time to Metric time.

      • Louis Hooffstetter says:

        I’m confident that Zeke Hausfather will assure us this is simply an adjustment for Time of Observation Bias:

        Zeke Hausfather:
        “Global temperatures (and apparently now tide readings) are adjusted to account for the effects of station moves, instrument changes, time of observation (TOBs) changes, and other factors (referred to as inhomogeneities) that cause localized non-climatic biases in the instrumental record.

        • Jimmy Haigh says:

          “Global temperatures (and apparently now tide readings) are adjusted upwards to account for the effects of station moves, instrument changes, time of observation (TOBs) changes, and other factors (referred to as inhomogeneities) that cause localized non-climatic biases in the instrumental record.”

          There. Fixed it for you.

      • …and the clocks were striking thirteen.

    • Anon says:

      Great catch, important! That paper carries a lot of weight. Thanks for posting.

    Replace youtube with hooktube and you can see the clip anywhere…even Canada!

    I can’t fathom why Franken, Wee Willy Clinton, Harvey Whorebanger, etc, etc, etc only targeted sweet, innocent young Sunday School teachers.

  7. Disillusioned says:

    Doggone It!

  8. Frank K. says:

    I bet he doesn’t resign, but instead says he needs the holiday recess to “talk it over with his family”. Then, in the spirit of the season, we’ll all forgive and forget and move on to the next crisis…

    I did hear a rumor today that a high level executive from a major fake news outlet will likely be departing his job next week, based what we now know about the infamous Matt Lauer Friar’s Club Roast of 2008…

  9. This is one of the rare times the Brazilian internet let me see anything from SNL. Al Franken at least admits that he is “not a scientist,” and proves it by reciting every lie concocted by all the ex-scientists who in the 1980s sought to make the USA into a huge Puerto Rico (or Starnesville). All those worthies now lie awake nights concocting global warmunism for clueless ignoramuses unable to differentiate a constant. They at least have their boy in the Senate.

  10. Manfred Kintop says:

    He shouldn’t have given up his night job.

  11. neal s says:

    Well, apparently Franken can’t seem to understand that the difference between himself and PDJT or Roy Moore is that Franken is guilty of what he has been accused of, and both PDJT and Moore are not. While he may say he will resign …. I won’t believe it until after it actually happens. He has lied about too much too many times before for anything he says to be believed.
