    Bill Clinton: A Reckoning

    I'm not going to post the article other than the link. Because it's predictable.

    Here's what it says. Paraphrasing because they still can't quite be completely truthful themselves:


    • We knew he was a crook. But it served our purposes. So we made excuses for him. Besides, some of us man-haters thought he was a hunk and a regular guy. He talked about his underpants in public, and the astroturf in the bed of his El Camino (which everybody knew meant he was hinting at more of his sexual escapades abusing women, like so many of we feminists wished ANY man would do to us). 
    • We helped destroy the women who made claims against him. Most of those claims were substantive. But who cares about minor details?
    • We know we claim to be champions of women. We know we constantly say women should automatically be believed when they say they are raped or molested. But we're "feminists" 100%, so we get to talk out of both sides of our mouths. You should be used to it, too, since we do it so much. It's our greatest talent. It was our job to take down any woman who could possibly bring the slightest harm to our chapion (and hunky guy) in the White House, even if it was hypocritical to do so.
    • Even when William The Slick couldn't do much more for us because he left the White House, his little woman was still of some value. So we kept our side of the bargain and shouted down (more like screeched at) anybody who brought his numerous sexual escapades to light.
    • For her we looked the other way, too. When she was "strong" we'd build her up even more because she did a poor job of it herself. When she needed to be a victim, we ran to talking heads shows and wrote editorials about her victimhood to support her. Because that's what we feminists do, we support our "strong" women being "victims" as often as necessary.
    • Now the media has turned against the Missus. The Democrats have decided she's a liability, too, now that she is useless to them. So she can't do anything for us any more either.
    • He was only indispensable as her partner in crime. If she can't do any more criminal activities to our benefit (and may actually find herself in deep, deep trouble soon for those crimes), then he is certainly useless to us, too. Not to mention he may have his own legal proceedings to deal with.
    • So we messed up. Bubba really is a jerk and a serial sex offender. We're sorry for not saying so sooner. Be sure to send us some money and believe everything we say from now on because we're being honest here, and we're really deeply and truly sorry.
    • Just don't ask us about Ted Kennedy until we can think something up on that story.


    At least, that pretty much sums up what I was able to stomach from the article.

    No Democrats, you don't get your virginity back

    WARNING: THE FOLLOWING POST DISCUSSES THE CLINTON PRESIDENCY. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

    Now that Bill Clinton and his trashy wife are politically impotent, Democrats want a do over on Paula Jones -- you know the state employee Governor Bill Clinton tried to force to fellate him.

    She sued. His lawyers deposed him. He perjured himself (and tried to suborn perjury from others) about his consensual affair with That Woman, Miss Lewinsky.

    Perjury and suborning perjury can be felonies, and certainly are impeachable offenses. Democrats played it as everyone lies about sex, and he beat the rap.

    Sex is private, right?

    Now, all of Washington wants to strip Alabama of the right to elect Roy Moore, and Democrats find  themselves on the outside looking in.

    So now there are a bunch of articles about how, oh, I believe Juanita Broaddrick (who claims Clinton raped her).

    That's nice.

    It is irrelevant.

    Clinton is irrelevant, and Broaddrick's story is hearsay. Sorry. Absent a conviction or admission of guilt, it is just gossip.

    But things may have been better had people believed her when we still could have had a police investigation, indictment, and trial. You know, all the things that make us civilized instead of the boys in "Lord of the Flies."

    Besides, it wasn't just Clinton.

    It was Ted Kennedy and Clarence Thomas.

    Democrats -- and frankly, most Republicans -- were cool with keeping Kennedy in the Senate after he got drunk, ditched his car in the water, and left a woman to die.

    And 22 years later, Democrats wanted to deny Thomas a seat on the Supreme Court because a woman said he put a hair on a can of Coca-Cola.

    I say to heck with them.

    I advise my friends and relatives in Alabama to vote for Roy Moore. He can always be expelled if he's guilty. We cannot expel Doug Jones if Moore is cleared.

    DUH!

    Liberals’ Sudden Concern About Bill Clinton’s Behavior Is Cynical And Self-Serving

    In the past few days a number of notable liberals have decided to take allegations of sexual assault against former president Bill Clinton seriously. Let’s just say that discarding the Clintons when they’re no longer politically useful to retroactively grab the higher moral ground isn’t exactly an act of heroism. But if we’re going to re-litigate history, let’s get it right.

    “That so many women have summoned the courage to make public their allegations against Weinstein, Bill Cosby, Roger Ailes, and Bill O’Reilly—or that many have come to reconsider some of the claims made against Bill Clinton—represents a cultural passage,” says David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker (my italics). It takes plenty of courage to face powerful men with sexual assault allegations. But how much courage needs to be summoned to “reconsider” Bill Clinton’s behavior now, more than 20 years after we first learned about it? Zero. Democrats pay no political price for going after the former president, nor will Clinton face any consequences.

    In The New York Times, for example, Michelle Goldberg spends around 75 percent of her column titled “I Believe Juanita” rationalizing why it was okay not to believe Juanita Broaddrick, who credibly accused Bill Clinton of rape decades ago. You won’t be surprised to learn that Goldberg claims the politics and conspiracy-mongering of conservatives provoked skepticism among liberals — excuses that will be awfully familiar to anyone following the justification of Roy Moore’s supporters.

    One of the problems with Goldberg’s contention is that the Broaddrick allegation was uncovered by NBC News, not Richard Scaife. Well, specifically, it was uncovered by NBC News after the network sat on the story throughout the impeachment proceedings against the president. According to the network, the story had to be put through an arduous factchecking process that included figuring out where Clinton had been the day of the alleged rape — something that had been worked out in a few days’ time.

    Then again, the myth that most of the media was enthusiastic about uncovering damaging stories relating to Clinton’s background persists todayThe New York Timesand The Los Angeles Times, for example, both had their hands on Broaddrick’s rape allegation in 1992 but dropped the story. It’s also worth remembering that Michael Isikoff was fired after fighting with his editors at The Washington Post after they dragged their feet on the Paula Jones story in 1994. Again in 1998, Isikoff’s reporting on Monica Lewinsky for Newsweek was shelved until The Drudge Report brought it to the public’s attention. Only after that point did the reporting take off.

    In any event, Broaddrick’s story had a short shelf life despite the fact that five witnesses claimed she had told them about the rape right after it happened. There were other credible sexual assault allegations against Bill Clinton that went largely ignored. In his book “Partners in Power: The Clintons and Their America,” published in 1996, Roger Morris, who was hardly a right-wing conspiracy theorist, reported:

    A young woman lawyer in Little Rock claimed that she was accosted by Clinton when he was attorney general and that when she recoiled he forced himself on her, biting and bruising her. Deeply affected by the assault, the woman decided to keep it all quiet for the sake of her hardwon career and that of her husband. When the husband later saw Clinton at the 1980 Democratic Convention, he delivered a warning. ‘If you ever approach her,’ he told the governor, ‘I’ll kill you.’ Not even seeing fit to deny the incident, Bill Clinton sheepishly apologized and duly promised never to bother her again.

    For those who followed the Clinton stories in those years, the “biting and bruising” will sound familiar. The woman was never found by reporters.

    Yet, however reluctant editors might have been in moving forward with these stories, the fact is that most of them were ultimately brought to the public’s attention by established news organizations, not shady right-wing outlets. Still, Democrats weren’t merely skeptical of these women, they often treated them with disdain and smeared them for political expediency.

    Even today, there is so much throat-clearing and blame-shifting when it comes to talking about Clinton that it is highly unlikely the dynamics have really changed. Goldberg, for instance, links to a Brian Beutler article in which he cautions liberals to treat future accusation against Democrats in the same way liberals treated Broaddrick.

    “As gross and cynical and hypocritical as the right’s ‘what about Bill Clinton’ stuff is, it’s also true that Democrats and the center left are overdue for a real reckoning with the allegations against him,” Chris Hayes recently tweeted. Why is it gross to point out that Democrats were celebrating Bill Clinton only last year at the National Convention — a convention focused specifically on the ascension of women in public life — even though everyone was privy to all facts regarding his behavior?

    In 1998, Nina Burleigh famously wrote that not only would she “be happy” to perform fellatio on Bill Clinton for keeping abortion legal (talk about a strawman) but that “American women should be lining up with their Presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs.” Burleigh was an honest liberal who made the moral calculus that whatever Clinton’s sins might be, his fight against the imaginary theocracy was well worth the degradation of a few women. Attacks on Clinton, she later explained, were an “insidious use of sexual harassment laws to bring down a president for his pro-female politics was the context in which I spoke.”

    Although it wasn’t said aloud often, the actions of the entire Democratic Party confirmed Burleigh’s position, in spirit if not in action. The Clintons were counting on it. An unhealthy veneration for presidents and a deep disdain for the other side induces people to rationalize the worst kind of votes. It is the same calculus some partisans use when defending Moore or Bob Mendendez. But it takes no “courage” to speak up later. Certainly not decades later. Certainly not when your purpose is transparently partisan. This isn’t a reckoning as much as it is a face-saving.

    As I said previously, none of this has anything to do with honesty, integrity, trying to right wrongs or anything else. This is strictly the dregs trying to get some credibility back by dumping all over the people they loved and lied to protect so long as they could get something from them. They're no longer useful, so bye bye.

    It's fitting. That's what the Clintons would do to any or all of these people. But don't mistake it for confessions of conscience because they don't have any consciences to clear.

    Chelsea Handler Apologizes to Bill Clinton Accuser Juanita Broaddrick: ‘I Believe You’

    She believed her before, too. Don't think she didn't. But it was inconvenient to side with her because she had plenty to lose at the time by being honest.

    Now she has nothing to lose (her show is in ruins and Netflix cancelled it because it didn't have any audience). But she has plenty to gain if she can fool people into thinking she changed her mind and wants to clear things up. She has no remorse. Not one iota more than, say, Ashley Judd has about not turning Harvey Weinstein in years ago. It's just that now there's no harm in telling the truth about what she knew all along, and she can maybe gain an audience again by virtue-signalling to weak-minded liberals.

    Hollyweird gets more disgusting by the day!
