Franken resigns.  How different things were in the days of Bill Clinton and Teddy Kennedy, for example, or even Hillary last year.


But today, we have had some climate change. :ermm:

I agree how politics has changed. For the worse if you ask me. Makes me glad that I'm old and won't have to put up with it for that much longer. I feel sorry for the younger ones who wish to enter politics.

It's OK to rape the nation of funds for their pocket but if you touched a butt 30 years ago? Out you go! I've noticed that Billy boy hasn't been mentioned much in any of this.

Guess it's the old saying : Money talks, bullshit walks!

@ Rooster: I think none of this would have happened if Hillary had been President. 

In my opinion, the short-term goal of the new-found morality among Democrats is to tip the Alabama election in their favor, thereby gaining a Senate seat, and in the longer term is aimed at Trump, who also has a history of abusing women.

Thank you, Marianne, you are too kind.  :) <3

Lol, do you think maybe I wrote mazarinades in a previous life?  I hope it wasn't cut short on the chopping block!  :O :angel: :) :D

O'Tink and Marianne, because of your thread I have learned a wonderful new word!

mazarinade (plural mazarinades)

  1. (historical) A scurrilous anti-governmental pamphlet published in mid-seventeenth-century France.
  2. Etymology From French mazarinade, from Jules Mazarin, the chief minister and a popular target of such pamphlets.

Lol, Virginia, you're very welcome.

T(h)ink and Virginia, I forgot to focus more precisely on Paul Scarron, who was a very prolific author (he might have inspired Molière's Tartuffe), and he was also the husband of the future Marquise de Maintenon, Louis XIV second wife - but read ...

Marianne, I have just had a fascinating time, reading the links you found...had not known of either Paul Scarron nor his wife Marquise de Maintenon, who cared for him until his death and later became the second wife of King Louis XIV. A morganatic marriage, but so fascinating - he spent several hours with her each day until his death!

Marianne Marianne Dec 13, 2017

Yes, Virginia, history is fascinating, and there is so much to read ... :)

Virginia Dec 10, 2017

Marianne, I certainly agree with your (brilliant) assessment of Other Tink's limericity and her general poesy! (...along with your own qualities in those areas are quite fine, also...) <3
