Kirsten Gillibrand, Mazie Hirono, Claire McCaskill, Maggie Hassan, Kamala Harris, Patty Murray, Tammy Baldwin, Bob Casey, Sherrod Brown, Joe Donnelly, Debbie Stabenow, Heidi Heitkamp, and Ed Markey.
What do these people have in common? They are all wasting the public's time and what little power the Democrats have left in trying to destroy Al Franken over the most minor abuses, while the Republicans in Congress and Donald Trump openly work to turn this country into a fascist dictatorship. Apparently, whether Franken touched some woman's butt is more important than the destruction of everything that it was supposed to mean to be an American.
How does this witch hunt do one thing to protect Americans from the greatest internal threat that has ever faced this country? And how does proving, once again, that they will collapse in the face of even a half-hearted display of Republican outrage, show that they have the strength of character necessary to stand up to the Republicans?
I am particularly saddened to see Sherrod Brown, who I have supported so strongly over the years, on this list, but there he is.
I don't want to hear one word out of these people until they show that they have the minimal intelligence necessary to separate the real threats to this country from a pack of Republican baiting. Democrats who will cave in as soon as the Republicans start howling are pretty much no better than the Republicans themselves. In fact, I don't think I have a shred of interest in them, no matter what they have done in the past. They do not have the capacity to lead us out of the danger we are in.
No matter how malignant the Republicans are, I never gave up hope. At least until this. Now, I think I do have no hope.
