Al Franken’s Strategy

by Ramesh Ponnuru

From my Bloomberg View column:

Senator Al Franken has a strategy for getting out of his current mess. You can see it in action in an interview he gave this week to Esme Murphy, a reporter for CBS affiliate WCCO.

The Minnesota Democrat has been accused of groping several unwilling women and forcibly kissing another. There are two obvious responses to such accusations: Either admit them, apologize and ask for forgiveness, or deny them. Franken is refusing to do either. . . 

I am confident this column sets a career record for published references to “butt cheeks.”
