Republicans need to beat on stories like the fraud that produced Senator Al Franken until it gets through to every citizen and people recoil from the label "Democrat" with disgust. Republicans have traditionally held back for two reasons;
1. a social sense of gentility,
2. fear of stimulating the Democratic base.
The first is misplaced. Morality and civilized conduct matter and there are rules to every fight but that does not mean that a patriot should be, in the Democrat Wilson's words, "to proud to fight."
The second is also a mistake because the base is already energized and more likely to advance against perceived weakness, they grow through bandwagoning, Reducing the social cachet that accrues to the Democrats by impressing on the public the "sleaze" and "ick factor" that they deserve will discourage many they count on for support, especially among media reactive cohorts,
The full phrase "Senator Al Franken" should be repeated constantly until it becomes a byword for corruption and fraud equivalent to Caligula's Horse.
