Doth protest.

A year ago today, this online item detailing aspects of a defense of Clinton conduct. Same day certain pundits alleged to have separately said "nuts."

If you want to see something as phony as a three-dollar bill, the opening of the post here; but check the thread at this point and following. Arguably, Franken ran for his Senate seat on Paul Wellstone's grave, and is not being Wellstonian to any great degree this election. His cozying up to Clintondom thus offends more than Klobuchar's doing it since she was one of the unanimous [except for Elizabeth Warren] female members of the US Senate who signed on early in a gender move.

Some Wellstone statements within that post at this point deserve traction:

"Never separate the life you live from the words you speak."

"Politics isn't about big money or power games; it's about the improvement of people's lives."

"The people of this country, not special interest big money, should be the source of all political power."

Heed the message, lest we forget and be deluded.

In all honesty, I'd expected more from Al. Per those Wellstone quotes and Al grabbing the coattails so thoroughly. Al's claim to be a Wellstonian channel. There seems to be a disconnect at play.

FURTHER: This ad attained this viewer response thread. Vapid stupidity; aptly reviewed. On one of those 3 am phone calls, wouldn't you want somebody besides an egoist owing more to Goldman Sachs, Arab nations, and the weapons industry than to the electorate? Someone like Bernie; in a word. A 3 am phone call response, "Take two extra drone strikes and then call me in the morning," would not impress.

_________FURTHER UPDATE___________
Two additional DU posts, here and here, telling things as they are. That first link; reflect on who you'd want to be taking a 3 am phone call from Goldman Sachs. (It would NOT be Ted Cruz either.)

_________FURTHER UPDATE___________
Recent AP follow-the-money-and-shudder item, posted with interesting accompanying graphic images. Reader help - does any reader know an online link for a larger, readable version of this hummer? Even being unreadable, it has an intrigue to its layout and suggested complexity. All that complexity, all that money; so is it really that complex or merely the old fashioned story, ever and again, where money meets open handed politicians and stuff results?
