This is on the theory that any allegation made by any woman against any man, no matter how ridiculous, no matter how unsupported by any evidence or witnesses, no matter how obviously inspired by hope of political or monetary gain… must be true. Because it’s a woman against a man and women (or is it wimmin?) are always right and men are always wrong. To which one can only reply:
The intersectional feminist Peace ‘n’ Security Studies prof has received a fair amount of blowback from normal women who read her comments and thought them revolting. But then normal people are all racists, aren’t they?
But if Senate Republicans, as is their habit, cave in to **** like this, they will have once again damaged the country. Now they must confirm Brett Kavanagh to the Supreme Court–or give up the presumption of innocence, the burden of proof, and the practice of fundamental decency.
All those principles go away, probably forever, if the Democrats win this one.
