Re: Politics & Current Events

I find it really difficult to be outraged about accusations like the ones against Al Franken. Unless a real pattern of behavior can be established, it really does just sound like poor judgment and bad taste on his part. Everyone makes mistakes, but now it seems like even the most minor mistake 15 y...

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

I refuse to entertain this scenario where Nick Offer an is a sleazy scumbag.

Re: Corporate grab ass shenanigans, and so much worse

You know me well. But seriously, i feel like i'm pretty passionate about women's issues. I don't think Franken should resign but i'm really disappointed in him, and he's probably finished. Which is sad, because i admire the good he did and could have done. I think he should resign and think he's pr...

If he is done though should use his considerable wealth to give back and make a difference still (for women and others)

Re: Movie Thread 2: The Sequel

We've had many chats in film school this year about separating the art from the artist, especially when we watched Annie Hall. It's a tricky subject. horsefeathers people can make good films, but by boycotting those films you also boycott the people who made it who had nothing to do with what Woody...

Re: Corporate grab ass shenanigans, and so much worse

I believe we've reached the point in the thread where sulley has his bi-annual meltdown, posts half-a-dozen times incoherently to himself, then retreats quietly to his trailer for a few months.

I'm not expecting it will either. At most I think it's be a scenario like Jersey laid out where he announces he won't seek reelection.

Re: Politics & Current Events

The person who took the picture says it was staged and Tweeden was in on the joke. If true she's lying about the picture. I"m not saying she's lying about the other part. Franken didn't say this though. I don't know. I'm guessing a nuanced explanation would not have gone over well. Regardless,...

Re: Politics & Current Events

I guess they can force out every Democrat who faces a sexual misconduct allegation, leaving Democrats to as usual feel morally superior but behind in actual political power. I get the point you're making, but A. this isn't exactly an 'allegation' regarding Franken, and B. I'm not willing to have se...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Again, like in the other thread, I'm not trying to debate personal feelings. Pedophilia is worse than sexual assault, they both should not be Senators. But if they're going to consider letting Franken stay on, even temporarily, I can definitely see the Republicans, who rely pretty much solely on 'w...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Personal opinions aside (see the other thread about sexual assault, which is a swell set of words to write), if you're the Democrats do you worry that letting Franken stay on would give Moore any sort of boost/momentum in the Alabama race? Is Franken a pedophile though? But to answer your question,...

It's not like the choice is Franken v Moore or Franken v generic R. Minnesota is more than capable of replacing him with an equally progressive Senator.

Re: Week 11: John Fox*s Bears vs Detroit Sunday noon on Fox

I'd be all for a Rd1 lineman if the value is right. Also Grasu has to go IMO. You can't have your backup C unable to play G, and Whiteside needs to be given the reigns at C and stay there. I'm of the mindset you should be adding a young lineman every year. Not sure if they think anything of Morgan o...

Probably so. Nevertheless, it’s not hard to get the impression that the video is about failed shows because damn, Fox has a crappy track record of shows apparently. Which shows lasted on there? American Idol, X-factor, Glee, New Girl, and Gotham? 24. That 70s Show. Both of which were established pr...
