And JFK’s own “roguish gallantry” was certainly roguish.

UPDATE: “The Democrats are going right back into the same mode they did with Clinton. Don’t worry everyone. In 2036, brave editors will have ask people to write, ‘Franken should have resigned’ pieces,” Jay Caruso of the Dallas Morning Newstweets.
