One of our nations most liberal women activists is sounding off...and sounding like a conservative radio talk show host! Holy Cow! She's making sense on many points and the Dem's should be listening to Camille Paglia! And this from Salon?
And with the Democrats' record of sex scandals, what the hell were they thinking of? For heaven's sake, after we just got through the whole Clinton maelstrom! What Clinton did with Monica Lewinsky was far worse than any evidence I've seen thus far about what Foley did with these pages. Clinton, whom I voted for twice, used his superior power as an employer to lure Monica Lewinsky, who was perfectly willing, into these squalid sexual assignations on the grounds of the White House. There was a time when feminists were arguing, in regard to sexual harassment in the workplace, that any gross disparity in power cannot possibly produce informed consent. All of a sudden, all of that was abandoned for partisan reasons in the Clinton case. I take the European view that any government official has the right to conduct as many sexual affairs as he wishes -- off government property. But Clinton, with all his power, somehow couldn't figure out a way to discreetly meet his chosen women at the mansions of his many friends. I can understand why hotels and motels might have been difficult to manage, with the telltale Secret Service presence. But to use the hallway off the Oval Office for those encounters -- to be serviced by a young woman to whom he gave no other dignity and whom he used like a washrag -- he turned that hallway into a sleazy mosh pit! The Democrats are being extremely imprudent to arouse all those sleeping tigers again -- particularly if their next presidential nomination is Hillary Clinton. They've reignited the endless series of charges about Clinton's allegedly abusive physical encounters with women, beginning when he was governor of Arkansas. The Foley case shrinks in comparison to Clinton's rumored history of hitting on women in subordinate positions.
And there is much more on Rice and Dem candidates, or the lack of credible ones, etc...! And this interview just days before the election, with her painting the Dems as totally out of touch with America 2006? Strange rantings from the far left, it's like she is conceiding abject defeat for the left side of politics...well...she does.
She also as an athiest argues for the absolute necessity of religion in society.
Overall a rather remarkable admission. Rush, or Hannidy would be proud of her arguments...come to think of it...we might be hearing them repeating most all of what she says...matter of fact it sounds like she has taken her talking points from them!
