I dont know exactly what Norm Macdonald meant when he suggested Me Too has slowed down. But theres some truth to his basic observation, and Joe Biden surfaced this week to remind us all why much of the public is less inclined to share the medias boundless enthusiasm for the movement.
Lets first note that the great champions of women gathered at the Emmys on Monday dared not utter a direct word about Les Moonves (as flagged by Howard Stern). Had the allegations against him made their way into the New Yorker earlier in Me Toos forceful first year, that may have been different. Whether the silence was rooted in cowardice or prudence, I wont speculate. But it was deafening.
Heres Biden this week, reflecting on the allegations against Justice Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanaugh: For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, youve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what shes talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not its been made worse or better over time.

Oh jo. Careful what you wish for. There is plenty of damning video of your “handy” work.
If I recall, we’ve been accusing Unka Joe of quite a few things concerning little girls.
As handsy as crazy old Uncle Joe is, he better be careful what he says here, schadenfreude and all....
Like French law: You have to prove you’re innocent.
“Joe Biden surfaced”. SURFACED? Is he diving, or something?
Joe Biden Suggests Me Too Should Mean Assuming Accused Men Are Guilty
That makes sense, because men are bad.
Next step: Assume that all
accused men are guilty.
The Ford accusations are really damaging Metoo.
But what if they're Democrats? You may accuse Joe Biden of not being entirely innocent around women, but then you'd have to be an Evil Republican.
Nononononono - only accused Republicans - surely Joe doesn’t want that to apply to Clinton, Ellison, or Kennedy - in fact, you’re not even allowed to mention allegations against them and their ilk......
Everyone assumes you’re guilty Joe.
To me, this nonsense is insulting to strong, competent women.
It is saying that women are wimpy, little creatures that have to be protected. The feminist should be furious.
Women who have sons, should really be worried and furious.
Damn the Democrats.
These elitist politicians are really in our face about how dumb they think we are.
Does Ellison care to comment on Joe Biden’s thoughts on this one.
Of course... How else is an old white man going to persuade a party of feminists to vote for him?
