Why you can't trust the honesty of liberal womens' groups: Regarding the difference between Arnold Schwarzenegger's groping and Bill Clinton's fondling:
Apart from the testimony of the groping victims, both of whom were convincing, the most honest thing I heard came from film producer and Codepink activist Patricia Foulkrod.
She admitted that Bill Clinton's sexual peccadilloes were as inexcusable as Arnold's.
"The difference is that Clinton was so brilliant," she said.
"If Arnold was a brilliant pol and had this thing about inappropriate behavior, we'd figure a way of getting around it. I think it's to our detriment to go on too much about the groping. But it's our way in. This is really about the GOP trying to take California in 2004 and our trying to stop it."
I suspected as much.
