This Year’s Akin


I see Republicans have discovered another rape philosopher to run in a marginal Senate seat:

North Dakota GOP Senate nominee Kevin Cramer said on Friday that the accusation against Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh was “even more absurd” than Anita Hill’s accusation against Clarence Thomas because Kavanaugh and his accuser were drunk teenagers when the alleged incident occurred.

Cramer added that Ford’s allegations were less legitimate than Hill’s in part because the assault she describes “never went anywhere.”
Cramer, who currently represents North Dakota as a congressman, was comparing Hill’s 1991 allegations of workplace sexual harassment against the later-confirmed Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas to California professor Christine Blasey Ford’s current allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh.

If only the Maryland legislature had the foresight to create a statute that covered cases in which somebody attempted, but did not complete, a sexual assault!

At least he didn’t try stand-up comedy.
