Let’s face it, for someone to actually believe anything that they’re told by just about any Democrat, but by some more than others, it requires that one possess a rather excessive amount of what can only be described as being that very special kind of stupid. And one of those Democrats for whom much of that special kind of stupid is always required is none other than ‘Little Dick’ Durbin from Illinois.
I recently read somewhere that the late Sen. Fred Thompson was once asked who it was that he considered to be the most disreputable member of the Senate, and it was in pretty short order that he replied it was this guy Durbin because he would never keep his word. Everything he says ought to be instantly disregarded. And after all that I’ve seen from ‘Little Dick’, I’d have to agree with that assessment.
Anyway, the only reason I even bother to bring up this turd, ‘Little Dick’, has to do with his recent appearance on the Communist Broadcasting System’s ‘Face the Nation’ and what was his very obvious attempt to squelch all of the talk now circulating about how there was somewhat of an ulterior motive behind the Democrats’ decision to finally give Al Franken the old heave-ho.
‘Little Dick’ did his best to portray the decision as being nothing more than a much needed attempt to do the right thing, and I found it quite remarkable that he was able to get through his entire spiel with a straight face. He even went so far as to describe it as being painful to see Franken announce his resignation last week, after ‘Little Dick’ and a few dozen of his ‘friends’ had urged Franken to get out.
‘Little Dick’ said, “I can tell you, it was a painful process because of our personal friendships and relationships with Al and his family.” And he added, “There was no political calculation in here. It was just a painful moment when we made a decision, moved forward on the Democratic side. I hope the Republicans will face that reality as well.” Give me a break! What a bunch of idiotic leftwing drivel.
‘Little Dick’ said it’s up to Alabama voters to decide who they send to the U.S. Senate in Tuesday’s special election, but he said, several times, he hopes Alabama voters will “do the right thing,” which, to Durbin, means voting against Republican Roy Moore. He said, “And I hope that they will do the right thing in terms of defining their standards and values when it comes to people representing them in Washington.”
And since being provided with some cover from his RINO colleagues there in the Senate, ‘Little Dick’ said, “But we have heard from Republican senators first who have suggested that, if Roy Moore ends up being elected to the Senate, he would face close scrutiny, investigation, even removal from the Senate once he arrives.” Here we have yet another reason to thank our cadre of pathetic RINOs.
‘Little Dick’ said Democrats “faced the reality” last week. He said, “I have known Al Franken for over 20 years. He is my friend. He was on the floor of the Senate announcing his resignation.” He added, “I sat just a few feet away from him. He said it was the worst day in his political life. It was a somber feeling. It was a reality. And I hope the voters of Alabama appreciate that reality when they make their decision on Tuesday.”
Look, anyone who views this little exercise in deception as being anything other than a TOTAL political calculation is either a complete moron or a hardcore-leftwing-kook-of-a-Democrat! Because, plain and simple, it was nothing less than a very feeble attempt to gain the “moral high ground” by claiming Democrats have cleaned their house and now they expect the Republicans to do the same.
And I think it’s also worth noting that Franken hasn’t actually resigned yet. And if Judge Moore does lose the election in Alabama, who among us will be shocked to see Franken sticking around after all? Franken is simply waiting to see of the Judge loses before announcing that after much prayer and reflection he’s decided to stay in his job in order to continue being a champion of women’s rights!
Let’s face it, the Democrats want nothing less than for President Trump to be driven out of office by baseless accusations of misconduct because NONE of their other schemes have worked. This pabulum coming from ‘Little Dick’ is nothing but pure hogwash. There is nothing that the Democrats do that does not involve some level of political calculation. That’s simply how they operate, and always have.
It’s the Democrat Party that has tolerated for decades the same sort of behavior that Franken has been accused of. And with all their talk about the Republican “war on women”, it’s the Democrat Party that’s responsible for the only casualty in that war, at the hands of Teddy ‘The Drunken Pervert’ Kennedy. So deciding to send Franken to the locker room does nothing to expunge decades of atrociously bad behavior.
And on the subject of Judge Roy Moore, I think over time the attempt by the Democrats and their many allies in the media to cast him as being some sort of letch has pretty much fallen flat. Perhaps if they had waited until a bit closer to the election their sick ploy just might have worked. His accusers have been shown to be liars and hopefully the good people of Alabama will see that and elect Judge Moore.
