Oh yeah, there is no doubt that there was also a lot of that old school sleep your way into films stuff going on. I remember Howard Stern asking him about it and Weinstein said, “I was born to late. That was in the 60s, blah blah blah.” Howard later replayed that during the inchoate phase of #metoo and said, “I just knew he was lying!” ;)

But, then the real rape allegations came to light and it wasn’t so funny anymore.

BTW dualstow, this was the one I was referencing.
The woman also told the detective — identified by Weinstein’s lawyer as Nicholas DiGaudio — that sometime after Evans’ office meeting with Weinstein, she suggested what happened was consensual, according to the letter. Weinstein had promised to get her an acting job if she agreed to perform oral sex, and she agreed, it said.

But certainly there is no shame in making false accusations against a man who might take away your right to kill your fetus. The God-given right that was written into the Constitution in plain English (albeit ye olde Englishe) by George Washington himself back in 1776.

Of course she recanted. Now that the white male patriarchy is fully entrenched on the supreme court and the Nazis have complete control over all the branches of government she probably feared for her life.

(I'm learning how this game is played. When the narrative starts to collapse, double down on it. Eventually people will get so confused they won't be able to tell what's real and what isn't).

@Stuper, I know it’s beside the point, but: 1787.

Well, that was an interesting election result.

No way to know for sure but my guess is that if it had not been for the Kavanaugh hearings, the Democrats would have probably won the senate as well as the house. Instead they actually lost 3 seats.

Normally, I don't really care all that much of late who wins elections and don't remember even voting in a midterm election before. So my advice to the Dems would be to stop motivating voters like me to go to the polls and vote a straight Republican ticket.

From what I've been hearing I doubt that is advice they are going to take.

You know that, and I know that, but do you think the people who I was parodying know that?

Be bold. Make them look it up if they doubt you. :-)

Certainly people will be angry... But he could nominate Amy Coney Barrett and how could they stop it?

If RBG hangs on for another year it will be interesting to see if the Republicans still believe in the rule of not confirming a supreme court judge in a presidential election year.

I think that was more of a "the Senate doesn't have to", not that they must not. And anyway, didn't Biden come up with that "rule" in the first place back when he was the Senate judiciary chairman in the.. early 90s?
