...both of his accusers have stories milder by far even than Franken's alleged sins, but then NDT's just a scientainer really, not an elected representative.

But *like* Franken, I think Mr. Hyphen is a genuine (and genuinely harmless) doofus, not a predator... but eye of the beholder and all that.

That a great and greatly conflicted experiment in self-government has come to this—a whole nation trying to talk a shitfaced trust-fund lout into a cab so that he won’t mow down everyone on the sidewalk, and then talking about what a fantastic job he did barfing in the ashtray—is one thing. It’s many things. But none of those things are complicated."
