Louis CK and Kevin Spacey are being erased from the public record while Bill Clinton's victims are going WTF?!
Georgina Chapman (Weinstein's wife) quickly dumped him while Hillary keeps raking in the dough with Bill.
Where witch hunts are interesting to watch. Which witch gets burned by the mob and which witch gets a pass is confusing to watch.
Yeah you never hear about Bill Clinton. If only there was a cable network or radio station that provided a conservative viewpoint.
from The Atlantic coincidentally showed up this morning and says it better than I could.
The party needs to come to terms with the fact that it was so enraptured by their brilliant, Big Dog president and his stunning string of progressive accomplishments that it abandoned some of its central principles. The party was on the wrong side of history and there are consequences for that. Yet expedience is not the only reason to make this public accounting. If it is possible for politics and moral behavior to coexist, then this grave wrong needs to be acknowledged. If Weinstein and Mark Halperin and Louis C.K. and all the rest can be held accountable, so can our former president and so can his party, which so many Americans so desperately need to rise again.
I voted for impeachment back in the day, so to speak. He certainly did set the new standard for what you could get away with openly
, and every liberal who supported him was an enabler. Eroding of norms, etc.
But I didn't expect the republicans to say, "If you can beat'em, join'em."
The Onion nails it today.
Roy Moore On Pedophilia Accusers: ‘These Women Are Only Discrediting Me Now Because Shifting Sociocultural Norms Have Created An Environment In Which Assault Allegations Are Taken Seriously’
MONTGOMERY, AL—Waving off the current allegations against him as vicious attempts to sabotage his election bid, Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore told reporters Monday that the women accusing him of pedophilia were only doing so now because “shifting sociocultural norms have created an environment in which assault allegations are taken seriously.” “These women have had 30 years to come forward, and the one and only reason they’re speaking out now is because they suddenly have less fear that their lives will be utterly destroyed,” said Moore, adding that the women accusing him of sexually pursuing them as teenagers were just several of many “jumping on the sexual assault bandwagon these days” in light of meaningful systemic change and the fact that society would no longer immediately discredit them. “My accusers are nothing but slandering opportunists taking advantage of the deteriorating influence of the patriarchy that has traditionally silenced any woman who makes such claims. If the American public at large had not finally begun truly hearing victims and decided that enough was enough, I guarantee that these women would never have had the audacity to accuse me of such heinous crimes.” Moore went on to say that he would nevertheless continue his run for the Senate despite the charges against him because while the norms had shifted, they had not shifted nearly as much in Alabama.
