I like The Atlantic, though it is The New Yorker without the umlauts assumption you cannot pronounce "cooperate."

After a few issues predicting The Eschaton it is slowly coming to the realization that Hillary was what she was: a "kept woman," a flawed candidate, a venial woman who sold her soul. As with all stories that involve such, you never get what you want.

The sad irony is Trump's declaration that he had permission to do that is mild compared to what Bill Clinton, Weinstein, Lauer, and every other Liberal Darling did.






We will take all of the Sister-Young Boy Raping by the Religious Conservatives as "read."




Part of being a "Culture Warrior" and author of Killing Your Career.

Let that sink in a bit, aside from being unable to explain tides, St. Bill of Reilly demanded with smug assurance how legalizing gay marriage would not lead to him marrying a dog. "Culture Warriors" stood for "Traditional Marriage"--which, presumably involved offering all of the non-virgins as a sacrifice to YHWH whilst raping their virgin under-aged sisters--against the "Secular Progressives" who, apparently, were against such.

Fuck all of them.

Explain this to me please, and never mind whether or not you like Franken's politics.

Why is copping a feel (that's what he did, not like Weinstein) a disqualification from the senate? It never was before.

It's a set up to corner the pussy grabber and it will not work.

Times change. Norms change.

There's a lot things that weren't disqualifying at some point in the past, until one day they became disqualifying. Using the N-word, openly supporting laws against miscegenation, massacring native Americans, saying women shouldn't be voting. Conversely, there are a few things that used to be disqualifying until one day they weren't anymore. Like being openly gay. And of course it varies from place to place. San Francisco had a gay mayor before anywhere else.

Except it's more than that. That's just the Democrat line.

Unless there is criminal wrongdoing, they will never get Trump to resign (or impeach him) just for "pussy grabbing". Maybe not even with criminal wrongdoing.

It is my belief (subject to the emergence of real evidences) that there is no criminal wrongdoing with respect to the "pussy grabbing" issue. Nor even a specific female complainant.

Of course his approval rating would go way up if he called a press conference and grabbed some pussies right on camera, but that is not going to happen.

I think. :notsure:

I am reminded of the Hot Chick on The Young Turks who, as the smoke cleared after their candidate got defeated--who started their triumphant program with some Fat Chick declaring that any vote against It's Her Turn NOW was "fear of the vagina!"--in the midst of screams from the Fat Guy and silent resignation from AMC Guy and That Guy in Game of Thrones T-Shirts, quietly asked if, maybe, voters hated her as a candidate.

"Light dawneth on Marblehead."

Sort of like that.

He said they let you if you're rich.

And while any of us might consider Al Franken (or any arbitrary senator) rich, he's not Trump-rich.

So the underlying issue in income inequality. :BigGrin3:

I'm not sure I'd go with a consent line in this spot.

He's terrible as to this, but Hillary was a moron for thinking it was all she needed to babble about. I've been in bars where "grab em by the pussy" is considered polite flirting.

"Wages are too high" would have maybe possibly appealed more to voters who weren't already in the choir?

Permission is fine, but saying "I don't ask" indicates that he didn't care if they consented.
Basically saying "I force myself on them" but claiming they don't complain afterwards. He's still declaring himself to be a rapey asshole, and I think it made sense to object to that even if he's bullshitting. The idea that he thinks that's a thing to be proud of is the problem.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Just a reminder that isn't the only case of his predatory behavior. He uses his power to belittle, abuse, and get away with it, but it's okay because Trump.
