One year after a Republican accused of sexual misconduct was elected president, and Democrats are the ones in turmoil about misogynistic behavior in their ranks.
Renewed media attention on sexual harassment and assault led to the twin New York Times and New Yorker exposés on Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood mogul and Democratic donor. But Democrats did not rally to protect one of their own, and his attempt to curry sympathy with a pledge to fight the NRA fell flat. The subsequent #MeToo phenomenon continues to upend the left-leaning political and media worlds, with accusations of inappropriate behavior ensnaring liberal darling Sen. Al Franken, dean of the House and single-payer champion Rep. John Conyers, Florida Democratic Party chairman Stephen Bittel, New Republic publisher Hamilton Fish, former New Republic literary editor Leon Wieseltier and Vox Media editorial director Lockhart Steele.
Even former President Bill Clinton, previously celebrated among Democrats for beating back impeachment charges, is being harshly reassessed. Sen. Kristin Gillibrand and Voxs Matt Yglesiaspublicly changed their minds and said Clinton should have resigned over his affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, and New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg declared that because of Juanita Broaddricks rape allegation, Bill Clinton no longer has a place in decent society.
The last time America experienced such a jarring moment regarding sexual misconduct was the 1991 Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, which ended with the televised spectacle of his former assistant Anita Hill charging him with sexual harassment. Simmering anger over Hills treatment by the all-white, all-male Senate Judiciary Committee spilled into the next election. When four new women were elected to the Senate, increasing their ranks to six, 1992 was decreed to be The Year of the Woman.(continued)

Year of the women. Ha! 2020 will become know as the year Bannon the Barbarian drove his enemies before him and reveled in the lamentations of their women!
Sure hope not. Weary of the “I am woman, hear me roar, crap’.
I want the best person to be POTUS and I don’t see anyone but Trump. Doesn’t matter what color...or what sex...just the best most competent person to handle our issues and lead us to a better future.
Conservative women yes. Will put back Trump and other conservative women AND men into office!
Last week someone speculated that that is the reason for all these sex scandals breaking “now”. Personally, i think it’s backfiring.
Those boys at Politico need to check their smoke. I think it may have a bit of PCP in it.
I smell the stench of the Fat Ugly Criminal Cow behind the new strategy.
Repeat an absurdity often enough long enough and soon you can expect...
A New poll shows that the odds of her winning in 2020 is 90% +
What DECENT man today would hire a woman over a man? Women are tempting....they have to take a ton more time off usually, and you never know when she will say you sexually harassed her.
Since when does consensual conduct become historic harassment.
Clarence Thomas’s greatest sin was that he married a white woman, thereby ticking off former intimate partners who were leftists loking for a leg up, including Anita Hill. Then all of a sudden the historic intimate relationship suddenly became sexual harassment.
Clarence Thomas did not deserve that. He took his seat on SCOTUS and has become a great jurist.
Sexual accusations do not belong anywhere but in a court which ensures the accused of the rights of due process and rules of evidence. In all other venues, such revelations should be prohibited.
Last nights passion evolves into today’s harassment. Last nights consent is reconsidered and the long litany of what I consented to and what I did not begins. This has no place in politics, Senate hearings, or campaigning for elections.
Because our nation should be ruled by informed logic, not the passion of otherwise private sexual peccadilloes. Men and women get horny. And this has been happening since the beginning of human history. Keep it private.
The femino-nazis need to get over it and cease their pu$$y whipping of America. It won’t work in any democracy, actually degrades democracy.Our nation will not be ruled by the power of the pu$$y OR by men developmentally stuck in juvenile sexual conduct.
The conversations concerning these trysts need to be either private, or in a court of law.
Excellent! Cogent rationale.
Maybe the Dems will run a woman that claims to have been sexually harassed/raped/humiliated by at least 30 different men....that should fire up their base....
2008 was the year of misogyny as the Left called Hillary Clinton a racist and a b-tch.
The media covered up “Father of the Year” winner (look it up) John Edward’s bastard child and baby-mama, Hillary was kept in an unwinnable 3 way race for delegates (she was challenging Golden Child Barack Hussein Obama, Mmmm mmmm mmmm).
When she was bought off to concede the candidacy to Obama, the Left then set their sights on attacking Sarah Palin as a b-tch, c-nt, and told rape jokes about Sarah and her teenaged daughter and homofascists hanged her in effigy in West Hollywood on the eve of the election.
“Year of the Woman” is a bullstalin designation that ONLY comes up when Democrats offer a female candidate. Vote for the vagina if it has a damned D. Throw stones at it if it has an R.
The Dems are trying to dial back their misandrist rhetoric now. They arent calling for Franken or Conyers to resign. Gillibrand even waffled on her statement that Clinton should have resigned. They are finally beginning to realize that they cant win if their are no men in their party.
I love those WOMEN FOR TRUMP signs!!!
Hopefully, they will proliferate in 2020, even in the bluer states.
Suffrage notwithstanding, I wish the Founding Fathers had specified that our president, indeed, shall be a man!!
I love the sound of “Mr. President,” especially when it is used to introduce my marvelous leader, President Donald Trump!!!
Trump/Pence 2020!!! To Keep Making America Great Again!!
I thought we had a “Year of the Woman” a while back.
Didn’t it take?
Not the white woman.
In a very interesting way, however, we might well term 2016 the Year of the Woman, specifically the white, working-class woman who the Left holds in such disdain and who responded with a finger flip and a vote for Trump. Hillary's people are still reeling, they can't believe it - they had those votes by right, those votes were theirs, and only pure stupidity and inferiority on the part of those women can explain why they decided that food in their children's bellies and a roof over their heads had a higher priority than A Woman In The White House. Those women roared in 2016 and the feminists in the Democrat party still haven't figured it out.
