Al Franken Reflection

Senator Al Franken says he won’t resign. Instead, he’s spending Thanksgiving in reflection.

Actually, I thought his staged grope gag was kind of funny. In a stupid 12 year old kind of way. True, Franken was 55 at the time. But maybe the joke is he’s not grabbing boobs. He’s grabbing a flak jacket. 

Not that that makes it ok.

Nice flak jacket

And the snoozing Leeann Tweeden didn’t sign up to be a straight gal for a photo gag. No doubt it was humiliating.

Franken Reflection

Maybe Al is reflecting on Hot Lips Houlihan. A gag proving her natural blondeness was the big scene in Robert Altman’s iconic movie M*A*S*H. (Here’s the scene.) Now that would be humiliating.

But not so humiliating that feminist Alan Alda wouldn’t go on to star in the popular tv series based on the same movie.

As Harvey Weinstein said in his non-apology apology, you have to understand it was a different time:

I came of age in the ’60s and ’70s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then.

Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy New Year to Russia with Love

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

Update: Kaepernick praised Castro’s education system on Friday. Hours later he died. Castro that is.

Dead Voters

Walking Dead

Some critics say The Walking Dead went too far in its season opener. The episode featured violence with a baseball bat rigged with barbed wire.

Critics also say Donald Trump has gone too far as his reality show campaign season closes. The final episodes feature claims the election is rigged.

Dead Voters

Liberals say voter fraud is a myth. Trump cites a 2012 Pew research report that says there are 1.8 million dead voters on the rolls.

Rudi Giuliani says, “Dead people generally vote for Democrats rather than Republicans.”

Not to worry. The Russians have offered to monitor the election.
