Are we trying to lure the assholes who voted for a man for the most powerful office in the world despite hearing him admit in his own words to assaulting women with that moral superiority?

Or should we understand that there are degrees of misbehavior, find an appropriate punishment, hold that person responsible for their actions, and keep those who have shown they are willing to actually fight for women in a position to continue that work? We're trying to defend against right wing assholes who want to conflate Moore with Franken to score political points with people who can't tell the fucking difference and won't vote for a Democrat no matter how "clean" we make the party?

Sebby is right. This shit is ridiculous.
