Bill Clinton survived impeachment thanks to feminists. For them, his defense of abortion rights trumped sexual assault.
But now the Clinton’s are out of power and the views are a-changing.
Michelle Goldberg led the Clinton revision charge with a NYT piece announcing she believes Juanita Broaddrick’s claim that Bill raped her.
Mathew Yglesias writes in Vox that he was only in high school when Monica took a knee. But now he’s re-evaluating the Clinton years and thinks Bubba should have resigned.
Even Hillary’s senate successor, Kirsten Gillibrand, is on board the new Democratic bandwagon.
She now agrees The Big Dog should have been put down.
Jailbait allegations persist against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore of Alabama. They say he chased teenyboppers in his thirties. He’s now 70.
A then high school senior claims she was pulled out of trigonometry class to take a phone call from him asking for a date. Another woman says she got him banned from a mall for for making “unwanted” advances. And another accuser says he tried to rape her when she was 16. He denied even knowing her. So she held up a high school year book he signed for her.
By the way, Saudi women get to drive next year.
It’s toxic masculinity week in Washington.
Damon Linker in The Week points out that The U.S. House of Representatives has already paid $15 million in sexual harassment settlements. And he says Al Franken is just the beginning of a “hurricane of sexual abuse allegations” about to hit Washington.
A moderate Democrat beat a moderate Republican to win the governor’s race in Virginia last week.
Latino Victory Fund
But a campaign ad by the Latino Victory Fund was anything but moderate. It featured an Ed Gillespie stand-in chasing minority children in a pickup truck. The ad only ran once but the Latino Viciory Fund president, Cristóbal Alex, says he’d do it again.
Some Republicans fear this could be a trend that will cost them their Senate majority.
Nothing really changed in Virginia though. A new Democrat simply replaced an old Democrat in the governor’s house.
It took a good man with a gun, and no shoes, to put a stop to a bad mad man with a gun at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
Stephen Willeford, an NRA instructor, ended the mad man’s killing spree at 26 dead.
Mad Man With a Gun
While he was in the Air Force in 2012 he choked his wife, cracked his stepson’s skull, threatened to kill superiors and escaped from a mental hospital. His efforts earned him a year in the brig. Yet he passed a background check at the gun store.
That’s because military bureaucrats failed to send his file to an FBI database.
