Thelma and Louise, you never saw that movie?

THELMA
Hi.

She is shocked by Thelma's appearance.

LOUISE
What happened to your hair?

THELMA
Nothing...got messed up.

Louise is studying Thelma closely as
Thelma squirms in her
seat, barely able to contain herself.

LOUISE
What's wrong with you?

THELMA
Nothing. Why? Do I seem different?

LOUISE
Yes, now that you mention it. You
seem crazy. Like you're on drugs.

THELMA
Well, I'm not on drugs. But I might
be crazy.

LOUISE
(shaking her head)
I don't think I wanna hear what you're
gonna tell me.

Thelma is just about to shriek when the Waitress comes over
and puts a coffee cup on the table and pours some.

Thelma gets a grip on herself for a moment then loses it as
the Waitress goes away.

THELMA
Oh my God, Louise!!! I can't believe
it! I just really can't believe it!
I mean... whoa!

Thelma is just laughing hysterically. Louise suddenly
understands.

LOUISE
Oh, Thelma. Oh, no.

THELMA
I mean I finally understand what all
the fuss is about. This is just a
whole 'nother ball game!

LOUISE
Thelma, please get a hold of yourself.
You're making a spectacle.

THELMA
You know, Louise, you're supposed to
be my best friend. You could at
least be a little bit happy for me.
You could at least pretend to be
slightly happy that for once in my
life I have a sexual experience that
isn't completely disgusting.

LOUISE
I'm sorry. I am happy. I'm very
happy for you. You finally got laid
proper. It's about time. Where
is he now?

THELMA
Taking a shower.

LOUISE
You left that guy alone in the room?

The Uneven Playing Field - Dahlia Lithwick, Slate. "Sure, don’t stoop to their level. But let’s acknowledge that the game Republicans are forcing everyone to play insists morality is for losers."
Quote:
In this parade of unilateral disarmament, Trump stays, Conyers goes, Moore stays, Franken goes.

Is this the principled solution? By every metric I can think of, it’s correct. But it’s also wrong. It’s wrong because we no longer inhabit a closed ethical system, in which morality and norm preservation are their own rewards. We live in a broken and corroded system in which unilateral disarmament is going to destroy the very things we want to preserve.
....The point is, as Jennifer Rubin notes Tuesday, that “one party has adopted a zero-tolerance position (with Sen. Al Franken, Democrat of Minnesota, set to go before the ethics committee) and another party opens its arms to people it believes are miscreants.” Rubin feels confident that becoming the party of alleged sexual abusers will harm the GOP in upcoming elections (did she live through last November?). My own larger concern is that becoming the party of high morality will allow Democrats to live with themselves but that the party is also self-neutering in the face of unprecedented threats, in part to do the right thing and in part to take ammunition away from the right—a maneuver that never seems to work out these days. When Al Franken, who has been a champion for women’s rights in his tenure in the Senate, leaves, what rushes in to fill the space may well be a true feminist. But it may also be another Roy Moore. And there is something deeply naïve, in a game of asymmetrical warfare, and in a moment of unparalleled public misogyny, in assuming that the feminist gets the seat before it happens.

On the other hand, the governor of Minnesota is a Democrat and there are several competent people with elective office experience who can be appointed in Franken's place. Including several women. It's not like the Democrats lose the vote in the Senate. They just lose Franken's obvious effectiveness. But if all of this makes him ineffective, then somebody else can be.

And Franken can go home, write another book, and prepare for a 2020 run for President. A man with his record is fully qualified, according to Republicans. In fact, maybe he should run as a Republican. LOL

Mark Dayton pulled the biggest bonehead move imaginable, PIA.
He wants a "caretaker" to assume Franken's seat till 2018, which in and of itself leaves that seat open to a certain Republican challenge, and an all-but-inevitable win.
He should have appointed a PIT BULL, preferably a female pit bull, one that would inspire Minnesota Democrats to keep her.

The only way that will happen is if he is able to clear his name either in court, or IN the Senate, which he is now leaving.
