How about the second accusation? Also not credible?

What about the 3rd woman that Avenatti stated he is now representing? Not credible?

It must just be those crafty Dems convincing a bunch of women he went to school with to make up accusations and have their lives put under the public microscope, all as part of an elaborate smear campaign.

Yeah, that totally seems more likely than him being a creep who actually did these things

Nobody should get a pass for this kind of thing whether they admitted it voluntarily or not, but the paragraph below makes sense to me.

Booker is an elected official who, every six years, stands before voters. If voters believe his groping incident -- or any other element of his past or present -- is disqualifying, they get to have their say. They can vote him out. That's not the situation in which Kavanaugh finds himself. He has been nominated to a lifetime appointment on the most powerful court in the country. The public won't ever get to offer up its judgment on his character -- that will be up to the 21 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and, if he makes it through that vote, the full Senate. Just 100 people in the country will get a one-time-only vote on whether or not Kavanaugh has the judgment and temperament to sit on the Supreme Court and offer his opinions on the pressing issues of today -- and lots of tomorrows. That's a very different thing than a senator -- or even a president -- who has to face millions (or tens of millions) voters every four or six years.

Been on vacation for the past week so I really have been limited to my phone, but I actually forgot all about this, so thanks for reminding me.

I'm back home tomorrow so I'll happily go into more detail then.

I should note that I stand zero chance of convincing Brvy that I'm not a religious bigot despite the fact that his last reply to Bob confirmed what I was arguing about all along. Which is that the religious right will happily stamp their approval of Trump and everything that comes along with him (racism, misogyny, discriminatory policies, etc.) so long as their socially conservative agenda is furthered

Insert Jesus is watching comment.

But because I didn't elaborate on it and because it was in the same reply as something unrelated (wiki), Brvy refuses to believe anything other than I was cutting him down for being a Christian.

It wasn't generalizations against all Christians, it was directed specifically at a group of people who call themselves Christians, but are really just hypocrites.

Oh my you are dense. I'll respond to this drivel when I'm not on my phone.

And I love the faux outrage, Brvy.

I can't wait to hear more about how I'm a religious bigot who viciously verbally assaulted you for being a Christian

I will remember this line for 2 presidents from now when you are still bringing up Trump.

That being said, your semi-explanation as to why you invoked the name of Jesus makes even less sense now. I didn't say anything about Trump being a good guy. I don't like Trump. You said it for no reason originally and then lumped it on me because you thought it would hurt me somehow? I really don't understand. But you were definitely using it towards me as a pejorative.

Go ahead and bookmark it for easy reference. I'm not obsessed with hating Trump and won't try to drag him into every debate like the right does with the Clintons. And just so we are clear, you could lock them both up for all I care. The fact that they haven't been held accountable isn't justification to excuse all the f'd up shit that Trump is saying and doing.

The Jesus comment was indeed made in jest, but it was made to highlight the hypocrisy of the religious right, a group that I very much believe you align with.

And I believe that group as a whole is more than willing to overlook every racist or misogynistic comment, every sexual misconduct allegation, and every discriminatory policy as long as his administration furthers the socially conservative agenda.

And while you may not have actually voted for him or even think he is a good person, I think you are more than ok giving him a pass on pretty much anything because the end justifies the means. That's pretty much the whole point of Fenxis' original post regarding the soulless GOP and Pence.

Trump paid a prostitute. Bill raped a few people, but at least he didn't pay them

And that was what prompted the wiki page comparison.
