    I sent a text message to a friend and his reply was (apologies for the offensive language) "Democrats are pussies. That's why they lose."

    A bit startled, I replied, "They lose because they call out their sexual harassers while Republicans endorse theirs?"

    I don't know a liberal/progressive/Democrat who wants Al Franken to resign from the Senate while Roy Moore is a week away from joining it. A good man shouldn't have to fall on his sword while a bad man rises to the U.S. Senate after being banned from a mall because he was trolling underage girls.

    But maybe Al Franken isn't a good guy. Same as the way we found out Bill Cosby wasn't a good guy. Moore, like Harvey Weinstein, has always been and always will be pond scum, so their ugly side coming out in the light of day is no big surprise.

    It hurts a little more when its a fall from grace instead of resorting to type.

    "I would like to point something out so that we'll understand each other better. I don't want you to think in the statements I made that I'm being disrespectful towards you as white people. I'm being frank. And I think that my statements will give you a better insight on the mind of a black man than most statements you get from most people who call themselves Negroes, who usually tell you what they want you to hear with the hope...that will make them draw closer to you and create a better possibility of getting from you some of the crumbs that you might let fall from your table. Well, I'm not looking for crumbs so I'm not trying to delude you."
