Excuse Me

The East Coast may have Anthony Weiner, but out here I think we have the better sex scandal--San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, a Democrat who's been accused by several women (I think it's up to seven now but it may change before this is posted) of sexual harassment.  What does that mean?  Pretty much what you'd expect--forcible kissing, groping and suggestive comments, often of staff members.

Local Democrat leaders are calling on him to resign.  His reaction?  He says what he did was unacceptable and inexcusable, and "words alone are not enough," but he won't leave office.  So as far as he's concerned, I guess it's at least partly excusable. He promises he'll become a better person, and will enter intensive therapy (but not so intensive that it'll stop him from serving), so that'll have to be enough.

He also says he's not guilty of the charges and will be vindicated in court, so what exactly did he do that was so inexcusable? I guess he's in that odd area where he did something that can't be accepted or excused, and that requires serious therapy, but is not legally actionable.

My favorite quote comes from City Council President and Democrat Todd Gloria: "There is no place in the Democratic Party for those who harass, intimidate or do not fully respect women."  Is Todd implying he should go to the Republican party?  I don't know, seems to me if we look at the past twenty years, the Democrats are the ones more comfortable with serial sexual harassers in high office.

Individual cases of harassment seem far different than wide ranging policies of the other side's War on Woman.

Why is that after I read about about a new NR initiative, I end up seeing a post here on the same issue

I'm just responding to a specific quote from a specific person who was responding to the actions of another specific person.

Neither side is fighting a "War on women" so that phrase always cracks me up.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is an NR initiative?

Love it. "The Other Side."

I think we've got a Dem conspiracy troll. A thousand women can be chappaquiddicked, and it's just routine course of business personal relations.

The important question, though, is from which Republican committee does Pajamaguy get its marching orders? That war on women, by golly, that means war!
