From Al Franken with Thanks.

From his Facebook account, no link for those who wish to stay away from Facebook today! Hope this is OK:

I’ve always really loved Thanksgiving. There’s the food, obviously. Franni makes her gigantic apple pie, and I make this great stuffing with wild rice – the real stuff from northern Minnesota. And, of course, there’s family. Franni and I have two beautiful kids (with two wonderful spouses), and we’ve been blessed with three perfect grandkids to spoil, with a fourth on the way. It seems like, every year, our table gets a little bigger.

But I also love Thanksgiving because I believe there’s power in giving thanks. I know it sounds like something Stuart Smalley would say – “That attitude of gratitude – it ain’t just a platitude!” – but taking a moment to be grateful really can make you a happier person. Also, a better person.

Last Thanksgiving, though, wasn’t much fun. I tried to be thankful for my family, my friends, and my health, but those weeks were incredibly difficult for us Frankens.

Over the last year, I’ve heard from so many of you – kind notes, supportive comments here on Facebook, people coming up to me at the grocery store or the gas station or the Vikings game to say hi. And it’s meant a lot to me and my family. Representing Minnesota in the Senate was the greatest job I’ll ever have, and I miss it more than you know.

I’ve also spent a lot of time over this past year thinking about the broader conversation we’ve been having about the experience of women in this country. I know that, for so many people, this issue raises a lot of powerful and painful feelings. This conversation can also be incredibly complicated. I don’t think it’s my place to weigh in on all the debates – but I will continue to listen and learn.

What I will say, though, is that, after a year of reflection, I’m finding it a lot easier to be grateful this Thanksgiving. Grateful for having had the chance to help make a difference on issues I care about. Grateful to all my supporters in Minnesota and across the country who made that journey not just possible, but joyful. Grateful to everyone who has reached out to wish me well – and, more importantly, kept carrying forward the fights I was proud to lead as a Senator.

And, most of all, grateful to Franni, who continues to be a rock, and to the family and friends who have always been there for me in good times and in less-good times.

As we gather around the table this year, we have a lot to celebrate, including a whole bunch of thrilling Democratic victories. But we also have a whole lot to worry about when it comes to our country. For me, and for so many of you, politics has always been about the improvement of people’s lives, just like Paul Wellstone said. And there’s so much more work left to do. I still miss being in the fight every day, and while I’m certainly not running for anything, I hope that, in the next year, I’ll have the chance to help make a difference again.

For a lot of Americans, this Thanksgiving comes during a time of real struggle. Men and women serving abroad are eating their turkey off trays at bases a world away from their families. Out in California, many victims of the horrible wildfires have no home in which to gather. And for some families, there will be an empty seat at the table.

So I know this isn’t a happy holiday season for everyone. But regardless of whether this past year has brought you joy or pain, I hope you’ll be able to take a moment this Thanksgiving to tell the people around you that you love them and give thanks for the good things in life. Franni and I wish you all the best.

With an attitude of gratitude,

Al

20. Franklin was a casuality of the fascist cabel that is in the command of our nation.

He was a prime target. A major obstacle that had to be suppressed at any cost. The woman who agreed to bring him down is in the same league as Lindy Tripp. A black hearted women who betrayed her unsuspecting young friend Monica Lewinsky. She will never live down a betrayal that is as evil as Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus. How many pieces of silver did the last bought and paid for betrayal cost the Republicans?

37. I might add: Franken was a casualty of media and arts illiteracy in the USA

We don’t teach media and arts literacy in this media-saturated country. We are fat like the Christmas goose with music, film, fashion, video games, household product designs, etc. Yet we don’t know how to understand or discuss any of it. We just grunt our “likes” and our “dislikes” and we zero in on whether we relate to the personalities involved. There’s little analysis of the form or content because we lack the linguistic tools. As students we rarely rehearsed the behavior of critiquing art, design and media.* (*see “embodied cognition”).

THEREFORE we are unable to see the difference between Trump ACTUALLY cheating on his wife just after his youngest son was born (and paying hush money to silence the story) and Al Franken MOCKING what soldiers might think about during a comedy tour. Trump actually transgressed. He scared one under-age girl from taking him to court. Al Franken was doing VAUDEVILLE when that photo was taken. The woman he was performing with had been literally slapping the ass of one of the musicians on stage. She grabbed another with her legs. Her actions were even caught on video. Again, Vaudeville. It’s all satire, which in point of fact is a light-hearted CRITIQUE of the acts being performed.

Had Ameirica actually had an education system run by teachers instead of overpaid, profit-focused administrators, it would have never fallen for Roger Stone’s tricks. (He urged the co-vaudevillian to pull out that old snapshot and pretend it wasn’t satire).

Maybe Mueller will expose these truths when he investigates Roger Stone. But the US public, Gillibrand, et al, should have seen the obvious: there’s a difference between satire and the real thing. Even Franken’s friendly squeezes during a photo op would be neutralized if schools still taught waltzing and other dance forms. Touching, even squeezing, a person’s waist or shoulders during a photo shoot is a wholesome expression of group affection. Some cultures, like Franken’s old-school yiddish theater culture, are more affectionate in these rituals than others. But even WASPS get touchy-feely on occasion. What have we become? Isolated pods sealed off in cubicles with nothing but simulated reality to impart a sense of humanity? Good grief, as Charle Brown used to say,

We have truly become the nation Mike Judge portrayed in his film Idiocracy. I recommend it as a delightful and edifying Thanksgiving entertainment.

Peace.
Remember the Native Americans.

Republicans can be vindictive at best. She is of the same caliber as Linda Tripp. The media weighs everything on how will this affect my advertisers. It is all ways about the damn buck.

Add me to the list of those who wish he’d run again.

I still feel so bad about what happened to him. He WAS railroaded. And by Roger Stone (and an equally pathetic shabby excuse for a knuckle-dragger radio station desperate for Something/Anything to get attention and praying for rescue from their permanent spot in the ratings basement) no less.

He was a good man, whose random crazy comedy stunt was twisted so it could be re-used to screw him.

6. Thanks for sharing this! Franken was railroaded...

... he asked for an investigation, he deserved to have due process... but he saw the "torches and pitchforks" coming after him and he probably knew that battling for due process would damage the Democratic party worse than just "taking a hit for the team" and allowing others to bully him out of office.

We need his voice NOW more than ever. I hope he'll return to politics soon.

16. A Senate ethics investigation

would only determine if he had violated congressional ethics rules. It is not a finding of guilt or innocence. I really wish people would stop using this inaccurate talking point in regard to Franken.

19. I was thinking the same thing

I think there will definitely be a role for Al in the next Democratic President's cabinet, if he is interested. He may want to stay a private citizen at this point. It gives him greater freedom to express himself.

I also think that he could/should host a show. He is so funny and smart, I think he could provide excellent insight into the coming presidential election.

If I was Netflix I would sign him up and tell him to create a show about anything he wants.

47. I get the impression that the Democratic Party broke his heart

I don't think he was prepared for the piling on by his fellow Ds whom he had great respect for. Their cold blooded denial of even an ethics review before publicly shaming him into resigning hurt him and I think that's the main reason he is hesitant to even attempt to re-start any process involving going back to the D leadership with cap in hand, and asking if he could run under their banner again.

Until Gillibrand and others publicly admit they made a hasty mistake, and apologize to him I don't think he will ever run again as a Democrat. And I don't see any indication that those responsible are humble or contrite enough to do that.

Perhaps he could run as an Independent in a district that is held by Republicans. That way he wouldn't be threatening a D seat. I think he could get a few votes even from R's and I's that might not want to vote Democratic, and are sympathetic to him. Once elected, work WITH Democrats, without an official membership, like Sanders. Maybe that would be sufficient face-saving for Gillibrand to swallow.

I've never been as ashamed of the Democratic party as I was then.

I'm with you on the need for public apology and admitting to being duped. Just like Biden can't consider running without offering apology to Anita Hill and admitting he was so terribly wrong, those that piled on the Franken-busting wagon shouldn't expect to move up without the press calling them out. I like to think they are decent enough people to feel gut-wrenchingly guilt about their actions.

You didn't see it, because he didn't beat his chest about it. But he really helped some of his people.

Now, as to greatness - I'd have to say that rests in potential in Franken's case. But his post today - that was great. You'd NEVER hear something like that from Trump, would you? Or Louis Gohmert. Or any number of disgusting personages.

Franken could have been a great US Senator, but alas...

41. Al Franken's senate career was cut short, and it was very sad.

This post, I think, shows his character.

As a US Senator, he was kind, compassionate, and really cared about his constituents. In addition, he took the time to find out about issues so he could vote intelligently. Lastly, he was, and still is, actually, a mighty voice for Democratic values - that same compassion, empathy, caring, intelligence, and thoughtfulness.

Used to be those were American values, you know. But I ain't seeing it from about a third of the population - the kluxers, white supremacists, nationalists and various drooling phobes.

43. As far as I know, he is still contemplating his options.

If all goes well, I will have a concrete word in late January if not sooner, though whether or not it will be "on the record," I don't know. We have all seen what a haphazard smear campaign made up out of thin air can do if timed right and blessed (if you can call it that) with a little luck and some shamefully spineless behavior by some of our (otherwise-) best Senators.

My ideal solution would be for his stand-in, Tina Smith, to resign, and for the Governor of Minnesota to appoint Al for the rest of "her (really his)" term (or until the next special election, whatever the Minnesota State Constitution mandates). I will pass on the universal-but-one good wishes from this board, anyway.
