Only thing to add would be Grassley, Hatch, McConnell and the other good ole boys hiding behind the door, eh? Moral cowards dance around with their pretty boxer shorts bunched in anxiety.
However, I agree with Susan Jacoby who wrote,
” …to say that a woman’s voice should count equally with a man’s in public decisions was to assault centuries of theological teachings and social assumptions about the innate inferiority of women.
Most of the first-generation feminists were women who adhered to some form of personal faith, but they were also deeply dissatisfied with being relegated to the status of followers—in their churches no less than in society as a whole.” – Susan Jacoby, Freethinkers
The cartoon apparently is despicable only to those willing to look the other way while one of our major political parties seems willing to ignore information and unwilling to delay the “ploughing ahead” as that good old boy McConnell has promised. It seems that his fellow Republicans and supporters want their preference regardless of judicial fairness and the matter of performing the duties citizens expect of their elected officials.
On despicability, I consider sexual abuse despicable. Furthermore, experience has taught me that sexual assault is not limited to physical attack. Sexual abuse is often verbal – more frequently verbal than physical. An attack on the supposed “character” of the victim in an attempt to defend the accused is … despicable.
The nation is watching; women are watching; young people are watching; voters are paying attention …
Most of the GOP is tone deaf, that’s obvious. If they continue to mishandle this moment they edge closer to losing the Senate as well as the House. If that happens the sitting president will be a de facto lame duck.
