On the Other Hand

It was a no-win situation, of course - for him, Al Franken. 

But to a degree for the DNC, and his constituents too.

On one hand, how could he or the DNC rally against Roy Moore being potentially elected to the senate when on the other they had an accused in their own midst.

On one hand (there are a lot hands in this post) Franken admitted to potential wrong-doing, and seemed somewhat remorseful, when on the other, Moore continues to defame the women in question.

On one hand, the Dems think they have the moral superiority over the GOP, and often, but not always they are right. On the other hand, they've seen their fair share of infidels (the unfaithful kind, not the religious zealot kind).

On one hand, compared to others being accused of x, y and z, Franken's actions seemed less harmful and were a while back. On the other hand, there is no time limits or degrees of severity.  Well, there are.......but there are not, if you know what I mean.

On one hand, Franken had to go, as he was a distraction and a pawn in the quasi- moral . On the other hand, he should have stayed, and said he was staying as long as a sexual deviant inhabited the White House. Point out the hypocrisy. Make more people have the discussion.

On one hand he has to go. On the other, it could leave the Dems down a seat in the Senate.

One one hand, generally we like Al Franken and kind of want him to prevail. On the other, you can't quite look the other way.

It's a shame it had to happen. It's a shame he had to go. On the other hand, if the light shining on shit like this keeps the heat on BLOTUS' pussy grabbing moments and keeping Roy Moore out of the Senate, then it's all worth it.

Sadly, Moore will be elected and all the Dems will have is the moral high ground. The GOP will have the votes. It is beyond sad.

It's a real shame. I thought it was cool how he "grew up" before our eyes and went from goofy jokester to serious/thoughtful but still funny and very human and therefore easier to trust than most politicians.

I'm going to miss Franken tearing apart some sleazebag like he does when he's on a committee. It's going to be hard for the Dems now. It's a sad shame he isn't holding that Fat Bastard in Chief accountable by staying and saying, "I'll go when he goes."

"On the other hand, he should have stayed, and said he was staying as long as a sexual deviant inhabited the White House. Point out the hypocrisy. Make more people have the discussion." I agree with this. The morally superior Dems will again cut off their nose to spite their face, again. Under age loving Roy Moore will be elected, pussy grabbing Trump will remain president, and the Dems will have lost a good senator. This is what always happens when you try to 'play fair' with serial cheaters.
