Now, compare:

Pearls Before Swine on Arnold's alleged harassment:


And if [Arnold] got a little carried away 25 years ago, I don't see the big deal as long as he did understand that "no means no" and didn't force himself on anyone. No one has alleged that he has, and every rock is being unturned by the Dem-bots.

Gloria Steinem on Clinton's alleged harassment:


The truth is that even if [Kathleen Willey's] allegations are true, the president is not guilty of sexual harassment. [Clinton] is accused of having made a gross, dumb and reckless pass at a supporter during a low point in her life.

She has testified that she pushed him away, later went to see him three more times in the same private setting without any repeat of unwelcome behavior and never experienced job consequences, positive or negative. In other words, Clinton took "no" for an answer.

In her original story, Jones essentially said the same thing. She went to then-Gov. Clinton's hotel room, where she said he asked her to perform oral sex and even dropped his trousers. She refused, and even she claims that he said something like, "Well, I don't want to make you do anything you don't want to do."

Her lawyers now allege that as a result of the incident Jones described, she was slighted in her job as a state clerical employee and even suffered long-lasting psychological damage. But there appears to be little evidence to support those accusations. As with the allegations in Willey's case, Clinton seems to have made a clumsy sexual pass, then accepted rejection.


In five short years, the laughable defense presented by one of the founding mothers of radical feminism to defend Bill Clinton is being used to defend a Republican.

Did you notice that "thirty year" phrase in that Steinhem polemic defending Clinton?

There's a "three decade" or "thirty year" thing in the Wilson business; we find this same "thirty year" issue rising up in the case of that English woman who says Arnold grabbed her buttocks.

It's like there's a master propagandist out there who has "thirty years" on the brain!

Sweet irony.

Great catch, L.N.

it is a good comparison, though I hate to have Gloria Steinem used to back up any argument

"The First Grope's Free!"

----------------------

Not at my house, whether it's Clinton, Kennedy, or Schwartenegger. Whatever happened to class?

Bubba's groping the inner thigh of this stewardess and she appears to be using her hand to keep his wandering fingers from going to high (she also appears to be occupied talking on the intercomm):

It wasn't just "first grope's free", it's lay back, take it, and then if you got problems, put some ice on it...

Great post. I don't have a dog in this fight, but it disgusts me that Freepers are backing a RINO like Arnold. This is not the Republican Party that we need ANYWHERE...much more so in California.
I have been staying away from the California threads because I don't particularly know much about any of the Republican Candidates. I do know this: A.S. does not have the same values as my Party.

Schwartzenegger's groping incidents pale in comparison to Clinton's procurement of poor, underage prostitutes for his major campaign contributors as Arkansas Governor. It is quite revealing how the liberal media selects certain obscure stories about conservatives to investigate and publish while over-looking the gross misconduct of numerous Democratic politicians.
