    I cannot get behind any mantra of "the End Justifies the Means" because if I have to violate everything I stand for to "win" I've whored myself out for something as fleeting and meaningless as a momentary fling with power. (snip).

    I do not care to see the Democratic party do the same.

    I genuinely believe that no mere temporary political advantage is ever worth abandoning virtue, decency, and justice for.

    Post 9 expands upon my earlier comment.

    As I say, what the new approach might be, I don't know. But something is needed. Something that is both true, ethical, and politically effective.

    Unless 'truth' and politics are impossible bedfellows, though I doubt that.

    ETA. It occurs to me posting in this particular thread, ie a thread about Al Franken's actions might have give rise to misinterpretation of my first post. I actually thought I was posting in the Big Shoe Alabama Race thread (so darn many!). The gist of what I said remains the same, but it isn't aimed at this specific event.
