I saw a clip on a guy on Fox News, and you'll have to forgive me, I don't remember his name, making the argument that how many of us want to be judged on things we may have done back in high school? That is THE stupidest argument I've heard yet about the whole Cavanaugh being accused of rape thirty five years ago thing. This isn't having someone buying him beer from a grocery store because he was underage, this reflects on his character. “Oh well, boys will be boys at that age” Ah, no, I would have never done anything like that at that age, or now, never considered it, and I didn't know anybody in high school who would have done that. That is not just a momentary lapse in judgment, it's a dis-qualifier.

 

Back in the days of President Reagan, Supreme Court nominee Douglas Ginsburg had to withdraw simply because he had USED pot back in high school. He was held to a very high moral standard, probably too high of one, and now a nominee accused of RAPE is likely to get confirmed? Does that seem right to you? I know, he says he's innocent, so if that's true, after an FBI investigation, then confirm him. But the Republicans in Congress want to jam his conformation through, without finding out if the allegations are true. So, in order to get a nominee who'll uphold their agenda, they're willing to ignore the fact that they confirmed a possible rapist, and if true, one with a character flaw a mile wide? Shame on them, and shame on people who're defending the jamming.
