But it was unusually high-profile, the facts were not in dispute, the perpetrator had a lot of nominal feminist ideological commitments, and political leaders who shared those commitments had the power to force him from office. Had he resigned in shame, we all might have made a collective cultural and political decision that a person caught leveraging power over women in inappropriate ways ought to be fired.

I think Senator Gillibrand got her cue from this writer.

I love the way all the progressives are throwing Bill under the bus, now that Hillary is of no use to them.

Yep. Very entertaining. They’re like vultures, they’ll eat their own, especially old dead ones and then fly off to puke it all up and go eat some more.

Oh, yeah. NOW they think he should have resigned. Same players. Same game.

All of the self-righteous come out 20 years too late.

absolutely stunning and let’s not forget how Weinstein helped Bill Clinton with legal bills during the Lewinsky fiasco. (Ah need to post this!)


To: GoldenState_Rose

Sorry Dems, but your permanent house guests, the Clintons, have no intentions of leaving the political spotlight. If you try to take them out be prepared for mutual destruction.

This is all about going after Trump. They’re trying to gain some crediblity because they know they look like hypocrites.

Maybe when compared to Joe Scarborough.
