October 7, 2016

What Donald Trump said into a hot microphone back in 2005.

"I moved on her and I failed. I'll admit it. I did try and fuck her. She was married. I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn't get there. And she was married... Then all of a sudden I see her, she's now got the big phony tits and everything. She's totally changed her look.... Whoa! I've gotta use some tic tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything ... Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything."

Trump immediately issued an apology, an apology that took a shot a Bill Clinton:
This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course - not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.
If anyone was offended. Is there any chance that no one was offended?!

Hillary Clinton immediately tweeted: "This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president." And Tim Kaine said:
"I don't like to say the words that he's used in the past when he calls women, 'pigs, dogs and slobs' ... but this is behavior that's just outrageous and so that there would be a news story that would have more statements like this of this kind, I mean, gosh, I'm sad to say that I'm not surprised. I should be surprised and shocked. I'm sad to say that I'm not."
Yes, Tim Kaine is right. Trump's statement — which is itself only words — is a confession to behavior.

Criminal behavior. Sexual assault.

Women are nuts.

Matt said...

The October surprise is not really a surprise given many people's perception of Trump's sexism. But it certainly might be the coffin, the nail and the hammer.

AprilApple said...

Trump is a terrible candidate - so we get a money grubbing liar and a total corrupt crook. Thanks.

rhhardin said...

Grab by the pussy has to be a figure of speech, unless it's doubles ice-skating.

rhhardin said...

On the other hand, Megyn Kelley is going to be great to watch on this.

BDNYC said...

Well, now we know what will be the focus of Sunday's debate.

Terry said...

Like Hillary Clinton has never dick-punched Bill.

David Begley said...

"Yes, Tim Kaine is right. Trump's statement — which is itself only words — is a confession to behavior.

Criminal behavior. Sexual assault."

I wouldn't go that far, but we do know there are credible charges of rape and other sexual assaults against Bill Clinton and that Hillary covered for Bill and attacked the victims.

But why is this coming up now? I thought this election was about America's future and each candidate's version for same.

BDNYC said...

I wonder if Billy Bush got mad at Donald for how he treated his cousin Jeb.

rhhardin said...

The pussy is sort of a low-definition area, grab wise, as any high school boy can testify.

320Busdriver said...

As someone said on another post.

It IS over!

n.n said...

Trump needs to control his fantasies.

So, it's Clinton and Pro-Choice including class diversity, selective exclusion, female chauvinism, progressive wars, mass emigration, anti-native policies, trickle-up poverty, scientific mysticism, abortion rites, and Planned Parenthood.

It's still the lesser evil.

rhhardin said...

A sexually experienced guy isn't going to go pussy grabbing, in other words.

Figure of speech.

Humperdink said...

How many October surprises can you squeeze into the campaign in 4 weeks? I am guessing a lot.

mockturtle said...

No click-bait for you, huh?

rhhardin said...

But Megyn Kelley isn't going to like the p-word, as she calls it. Nonono.

Great TV coming. I'll watch for the sound.

steve uhr said...

A youthful indiscretion. He was only 60ish at the time.

Bad Lieutenant said...

Nonsense. Criminal nonsense. Hillary Clinton is the death of the Republic and you're trying to parse out kisses and squeezes. We knew that he was sexually adventurous. This is baked in and when you have said "he has a chest wound" you do not get extra points for "and it was bleeding, man! And bubbling, and it made this sound..." for people who revel in the grotesque, which is you, but then don't get shirty about it.

This story to the extent that it means anything, is froth, mere detail. As Trump says, Clintons have said and done worse. Ann, if Hillary Clinton wins, I prophesy that things will be very bad for you, you yourself, personally. It will be that kind of world.

sinz52 said...

"I apologize if anyone was offended."

Rule: No apology that contains the word "if" is sincere.

rhhardin said...

Is this worse that calling Rosie fat, is the question. It's not pussy shaming, after all.

n.n said...

Behavior or orientation? His fantasy is evidence of the latter. It's trans-social in public spaces.

sinz52 said...

"How many October surprises can you squeeze into the campaign in 4 weeks? I am guessing a lot."

There already is another one.

Trump just insisted that those 5 suspects in the "Central Park jogger" case--26 years ago!--were guilty, even though they were exonerated when someone else confessed and DNA evidence proved that person was indeed the real perpetrator.

26 years have elapsed, practically a whole generation, and Trump is still talking about the case, long after the case was closed.

Trump is just hopeless. Hopeless.

Trump's supporters foisted this hopeless character on the rest of us. Shame on them.

rhhardin said...

Thank god Trump doesn't have any unusual fetishes. Feet or something.

Kathryn51 said...

Sounds like the male version of Sex and the City. Or the Lena Dunham show. Only since it is on TV, they use euphemisms (wink/wink).

Wasn't there something years ago about the golf game "pussy" chit-chat of Clinton (male) and Vernon Jordan?

buwaya said...

Just you wait.
Everything possible will blow in in the next - what, four weeks?
We shall all be amazed at this'n that.
The system will do all in its power to get its way.

rhhardin said...

Megyn Kelly goes down on Trump.

mockturtle said...

The more they try to dissuade me from voting for Trump, the more I am inclined to do so. In fact, right now I would walk barefoot over broken glass for ten blocks to cast my vote for Trump.

cubanbob said...

sinz52 tell us your excuses for Hillary.

Mary Beth said...

If anyone was offended. Is there any chance that no one was offended?!

Of course not, especially not any more when people get offended over everything and anything.

It's vulgar and rude but the Clintons taught me that if it's about sex, it's got nothing to do with politics and is none of our business. Move on.

rhhardin said...

This is the lead Megyn Kelly debate question all over again. Guys everywhere groan. "What is this shit?"

Women's vote.

Lyle Smith said...

How is it sexual assault if it is consented to, the kissing, grabbing, and fucking?

gerry said...

Rhhardin, you are really on your yame today. Perfect.

rhhardin said...

The joy is really Megan Kelly doing an offended woman.

I'd be offended by the act, if I were a woman, except my brain would be wired differently then.

Quayle said...

"This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president."

Funny, that's exactdly what a number of people said about Bill Clinton, but Hillary attacked them and shut them down, and the media dutifully played along.

AprilApple said...

Now Trump HAS TO bring up Bill's rapes.

Kathryn51 said...

Yeah, I thought there was something about Jordan-Clinton "pussy" talk.

Jordan-Clinton Chat

I wouldn't walk barefoot over broken glass, but I'm getting damn near to that "F**k You Corrupt Elites" vote for Trump.

What Quayle said.

It is only sexual assault if there is no consent. Does he anywhere suggest that he has done or wanted to do anything without consent? I didn't see that anywhere in the article.

Soap Dish (Sally Field) was a sort of nice DVD, incidentally. Speaking of soap opera.

Ken B said...

Trump cites such grabbing as an example of what they allow. That's not a confession to doing it. Althouse is usually careful about such parsing. I guess she's being cruelly neutral again.

R.J. Chatt said...

I'm not offended.
Bill Clinton reportedly said that Hillary has eaten more pussy than he. So what? Do we really need to discuss this?

I thought Trump was being "a dude" and gossiping about himself to be amusing. Notice when they got off the bus it was Billy Bush who suggested Trump give the woman meeting them a hug. It wasn't Trump's idea or impulse to hug and kiss her, despite what he had just bragged.

R.J. Chatt said...

Also, I thought it was common knowledge that some women, called groupies, throw themselves at famous and successful men.

Earnest Prole said...

The only way this could have been better is if Trump had said “Fuck her right in the pussy”

Mebbe it's time for me to disconnect until 2017.

Bad Lieutenant said...

And somebody else made a noise that he was talking about the Central Park jogger case again. So? You think he brought it up out of nowhere, or was he asked about it to create just such a controversy? And, ZOMG, perhaps he said what he really thinks?

God, I hope we're not this stupid.

eric said...

I would say, any other Republican candidate and this race would be over. Done. Bye bye.

And many Democrats and #Nevertrump are celebrating right now thinking it is, all the while pretending not to celebrate but to be offended, right after they turn off the porn.

But, I wonder. I mean, I remember Romney was quite the terrible human being. He had binders filled with women. As opposed to Bill, who, it can be said, had a private matter that was none of our damn business.

I'm even more doubtful now that trump can win.

But man oh man, if he does win, it'll mean the death knell of personal attacks on Republican candidates for a long long time.

Will we be getting a, "How Trump lost me" blog soon from our hostess?

I expect it's coming.

Bad Lieutenant said...

Wow, betrayed by a Bush? Imagine that.

Gk1 said...

Hah! This is the best they got? They really did shoot their wad months ago trying to take Trump down. Now all they got are these pathetic spitballs that make them look foolish when they hurl them. No one cares at this point.

You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything ... Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.

Where's the explicit admission of nonconsensual touching in that statement?

PB said...

Are there ANY claims by these women of sexual assault? I haven't heard any. To me it sounds like a Cosmo article or one of those trashy romance novels. It only lacks "her heart raced and her breast heaved."

How is a discussion between two men that could be called bragging construed as a crime? To make the accusation that it's sexual assault and criminal behavior without a victim's claim is libel.

Paddy O said...

Trump is the Schwarzenegger of our era, including a similar campaign. No doubt a similar governing style.

Hilarious. Our leftie betters who have urged on the 2Chainz of this world to further their art with such great tunes that extol the virtues of fucking they bitches in the ass have suddenly gotten Puritanical. Pussy? Why clutch my pearls.

Fuck off lefties. Eat it. You made it.

buwaya said...

I suspect we all have seen nothing yet.
This is a man with a LONG career in such circles.
He is a 70-year old roue. There is most likely an enormous amount of such material.

The system has the resources to find every bit of material of this sort and they probably have. The stakes are very high ($Trillions) and, stupid as the game rules are, they will play to the limit on these idiocies.

EDH said...

So "slut shaming" is back in, for men?

Matt said...

Gk1 said...
"No one cares at this point."

Correction: You don't care. This is not exactly the kind of news any campaign wants the last month before a major election. Especially because it fits neatly into a narrative many have about Trump. At this point Trump needs some good news cycles. This is not nothing. Saying that this is not important is being willfully ignorant.

Grabbing genitals is merely a test to determine if she is really a woman. These days you can't be too careful. Remember the scene from Crocodile Dundee?

Diogenes of Sinope said...

This is no surprise. If someone asked me if Trump talked like this a year ago I would have said yes. Bull shit male sex talk from 11 years ago. Again what Trump says versus Clinton actions.

Michael said...

The deplorables, being deplorable, do not give one shit about this stuff. They want a randy president after this last one. The saint of the left, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, fucked his brains out with numerous women.

Tank said...

A lot of women just decided to vote for Trump.

Bad Lieutenant said...

Matt, substantively it is nothing, but on the noise level it is something. Are you interested in the noise or in the substance? Hillary's crimes in office far exceed Nixon's and you don't even care. I can justify not caring about Trump's foibles. Can you justify not caring about that?

Patrick said...

Should be interesting to see this chine up in the debate. Hillary could over overplay this, and all of a sudden all of the antics and accusations against Bill and Her enabling behavior are front and center..

But yikes, what a thing to say. If the recent past is any guide,he'll go up in the polls a few points.

Unknown said...

The majority of college educated white women care, so do the vast majority of minority women, a group he's already losing.

buwaya said...

"At this point Trump needs some good news cycles."

There aren't any "good news cycles" because we simply aren't dealing with "news".
These aren't normal times at all, and the US news media certainly isn't normal and neither is politics. What you have is an authoritarian state being birthed, and a ministry of information in its early stages.

Heck, if the media and politics were normal, you probably wouldn't have either Clinton or Trump.

I agree but all of the Trumpsters will find an excuse to ignore the obvious and forgive him because Bill Clinton, John Kennedy and Aunt Matilda's son Jeffy did the very same thing. If sexual assault was ever imposed on any woman, then Donald is good - because he is like all other men!

For example, David Begley said...
But why is this coming up now? I thought this election was about America's future and each candidate's version for same.

Perhaps it has arisen because character matters to some of us and when the candidate running against the Clintons is no better and no more honest - don't vote for him either.

Matt said...

PB said...
"like clockwork, every friday it's something new tossed out by the Clinton campaign"

-The Clinton campaign didn't release anything about Trump's birther theories. He owns that one all by himself.
-Trump's lies are - again - his own.
-Miss Universe was release by Clinton but, boy, Trump took the bait and made it worse!
-This locker room talk is all his too. I've seen nothing to indicate the Clinton campaign dug it up for WaPo to publish it.

Unknown said...

"A lot of women just decided to vote for Trump."

Delusional, or very very funny.

Mac McConnell said...

I told you Kaine was gay, that's why he was never included in the locker room talk at Rockhurst.
I've read worse shit than this in Cosmo while waiting in the dentist office. Liberals debase our culture and our institutions, then pretend to be shocked. I'd rather than a BSing heterosexual as president than a criminal.

Comanche Voter said...

Well at 60 in the locker room he was talking like a high school quarterback who had laid the homecoming queen and her entire court from one end to the other; and in the girl's locker room the homecoming queen was talking about how she'd drained that football stud dry. It's 18 year old talk. Of course this was 10 years ago. Has anybody asked New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady what he said in the locker room? I don't even want to think about Mick Jagger.


And Billy Jeff Clinton is reliably reported to have complained that he'd had only 2,000 women and would never catch up to basketball great Wilt Chamberlain's twenty thousand notches on the bedpost.

So am I offended? Only in that folks are getting upset about the Trumpster's relative chump change escapades in the bedroom and boasting about it in the locker room. Grow up people. Hillary boasted about getting a guilty rapist off with a defense verdict.

I saw a poll in the last couple days on RCP, HRC was up 16 points.

So, as you noted, your decision doesn't matter. You're not sending any message to anyone.

It's interesting to me that you and Mock find some sort of catharsis in futility.

Anywho, word on the street is that this is one in a series of DJT blunders that will be rolled out at the rate of about one a week. Time will tell.

Hey, I'm not offended. Guys lie about their sexual exploits all the time and this sounds like a lie. It's locker room bullshit, and it's stupid and Trump sounds like a jerk. But I'm not going to bother taking offense at stupid banter. Within the last week I heard just as bad between two thirtyish women in the checkout line at the Publix in Beaufort, S.C.

Suppose people were suddenly revealing all the ugly or stupid things Hillary has said. Is Trump's statement any worse than H. Clinton floating the idea of "droning" someone whose revelations are uncomfortable to her.

It may cost him the votes of women who were sitting on the fence. Those are the ones that both candidates are counting on at this point.

Oh for christ's sake, you precious little snowflake. It's only "assault" if it's "unwanted," which the lawyers have done us all the service/disservice of saying means that it's the woman's discretion. His own words say that the acts ARE wanted, and if you actually think women aren't attracted to the power/fame/money he had then then you need to go back and re-think the entire body of case law on this stuff, or take a biology course or something. Of course it's possible that these acts were unwanted, but no woman's come forward with such a charge (unlike with your Hillary's husband) so there's no reason to use his own exculpatory words to presume guilt when no one's charged anything but innocence. The law doesn't say how a guy's supposed to KNOW that something's wanted/unwanted - so you have no standing to presume he was wrong in concluding that they were wanted.

And now we know which field is complicit in leading the decline of our universities into intellectually unsuccessful drone-factories of sexless PC weirdos who want to (and think they can) re-make society in their own boring and evolutionarily and culturally backward image: THE LAW.

Fuck this noise. GO back whence the rock from under which you came. Your attempt to regulate human nature will fail just like any other. Like all the others. If you want to wear a chastity belt that's fine, but stop putting one on all the other women whom you feel are so wrong to convey their attraction/lack of sexual hostility toward their perception of male success.

Just go away. Your kind have done enough damage to society.

rhhardin said...

Pussy propagation is also likely to reduce the number of things women can pretend to be offended by, which is always good.

Achilles said...

Hillary has subverted the department of justice and the FBI and turned them into tools of corruption. She has sold the state department for donations to her slush fund.

Bill raped several women and Hillary covered for him.

Trump bragged about getting to second base with girls with some friends.

How many women are stupid enough to fall for this? I am embarrassed we have failed to raise many of our women to be so fucking stupid.

Once again, any charge against Trump is an even worse charge against the Clintons.

Bill Clinton in every sense of the words committed workplace sexual harassment and worse, while Hillary attacked the victims. That's not just a hot mic, that's actual misogyny, vulgarity, sexism, devaluation and objectifying, and aggressive behavior.

I abhor Trump. But can't find that Trump is worse than the Clinton's in any category, even the kind mentioned here.

PBandJ_Ombudsman said...

What happened to Althouse's campaign to fight civility BS?

Rhythm and Balls said...

Also, I thought it was common knowledge that some women, called groupies, throw themselves at famous and successful men.

Not in Professor's mind/field. Nothing can be presumed. A girl goes up to a guy's place and they're making out, that's not consent. If she takes off her clothes and gets on top of him, even that might not be consent. Heck, she might have had a drink from a flask stowed away in her purse and you'd have never known it.

And that's what the universities think they can do. Completely do away with any natural presumption of a consensual act, along with the idea that mixed signals are not criminal. They actually think that human beings will be indoctrinated as young adults to verbally provide a description of the sex act to which they are consenting - as if this were a goddamn BDSM contract. Human nature cannot be artificially constructed by emotionally fragile and perpetually offended human nature non-experts with too much time on their hands and not enough people to aspire to control already.

But try they will. No non-verbal contexts, no acceptability of mixed signals. Human sex units are robot drones who require a fucking visible checklist, just like we do for pilots about to fly a 747 and surgeons as they scrub in. Because having a little fun, getting passionate, and possibly maneuvering each other's bodies, hands, lips, tongues and clothing such that the abomination of a penis entering a vagina might occur, is nothing short of brain surgery in the danger it poses. Emotionally. Socially. Politically.

These people are their own parodies. Just a complete bunch of jokes. Puritans who feel that the witch is inside of them, and that a penis might accidentally knock it out. And that would scare the pants off these people.

My childhood terrier was more interesting than these people. Had more to offer society, too.

Actual locker rooms don't talk about women, by the way. It's only in films.

Trump's talk was some sort of bonding and competition.

He meant alpha-male ritual talk, not locker room talk.

When I was at a memorial service this week two women behind me were discussing the grandson of one, who had to go to the ER for a boner lasting more than four hours. That got my attention, but their voices went low, rising when the grandmother said, "But he's very very heterosexual."

This was in a Methodist church in a small town in Montana.

I doubt anyone will be shocked by Trump's locker room gossip.

Nobody should act like that. In a better world, not even close to an ideal one, we would have at least one candidate who was moral and upstanding.

"My childhood terrier was more interesting than these people."

Thats not true, human folly is way more interesting than animals. People screw up in many more interesting ways. Now, they certainly annoy you more than your dog, and amuse you less, but that is a matter of taste.

Oh, to be young in these times. So much fun to be had. So many to annoy, armored with youth and lack of responsibility.

The Big Law industries and Big University Glut industry have conspired to make sex the passionless equivalent of naked tea time. With pinkies in the air, fully clothed in best dresses, much oversight and supervision... until even young girls will be able to convince their mothers to let them "practice" at it.

The best way to learn is by example. How do Larry and Annie get it on while being assured that one is not assaulting the other? I seriously want a video demonstration. You know, it is possible for a spouse to rape their spouse, after all.

I'm not joking. I need to see how this is done, for real. So that I know. Just because I'm not someone who hates my genitals or sexuality or libido or passion as much as our betters on this blog and in the ivory tower are. I'm handicapped in not hating my anatomy/physiology as much as the most advanced and influential feminist hates hers. So her perspective is one I will never intuitively "get".

I need a demonstration from the blog-owners. Pronto.

Moralizing shouldn't be taken seriously. Morality is quite different.

Look for a guy who keeps his word, for instance.

In a better world, not even close to an ideal one, we would have at least one candidate who was moral and upstanding.

You have that world. No one's preventing your church from holding elections on whom to lead it.

Heck. Even the pope's decided by some type of decision-making process.

People who require psychological purity are not meant to be solving the actual, real-world human problems that secular politics alone offers the chance to do something useful about. But first the purity must be put aside.

"we would have at least one candidate who was moral and upstanding. "

Whats moral and upstanding? Being well behaved about sex?
Whats so special about sex as an occasion for sin?
Or for that matter as an issue in politics?

In the old days most men of substance anywhere kept mistresses, and few used such confidences or scandals in politics. Such as there were were memorable because they were rarely used. The Victorians weren't terribly Victorian.

WTF? Trump is losing the vast majority of minority women? If only he could replicate Nixon's, Ford's, Reagan's, McCain's, Romney's, and the Bush's electoral success with this key Republicen demographic.

I've said many times Hillary is sure to win the Presidency for a number of baked-in reasons that have nothing to do with Trump. But it occurs to me that once she does win, the Trump diversion goes away and there's no one to talk about but Hillary in all her boundlessly corrupt glory.
The ever increasing Republican majority in the Congress and Senate are going to whip her like a rented mule. Metaphorically, natch.

buwaya said...

"Maybe it's time we just have a Prime Minister elected from the Party in majority."

I support this. It really does work better as a response to the public will, and a true check&balance than the current US system, especially after the rise of the bureaucratic state.
The all-powerful bureaucracy has broken the US political model.
There is no check on that through normal politics in the US. With a parliament you do, or do better.

A parliamentary system also avoids the worst of the truly stupid personal politics of the US system. You vote for a legislature, voting for a representative and/or a party. It is more of a professional relationship, not a personal one.

Dear George Ferko. All men do not talk like that. I have never heard any of my friends talk that way. When it came to women most guys were pretty respectful, even at my my dad's hunting camp and my Navy Patrol Squadron. I think if anyone did talk that way most guys would be pretty offended.

Rhythm and Balls said...

I don't think that is (or should be) debatable, here.

I'm not debating it!

I'm asking to know where the presumption of non-consent ends.

Professor doesn't have an answer. And the universities say make it all verbal. Every time. All the time.

WHich begs the question of what documentation or evidence is acceptable/necessary for THAT. You know, if you didn't record it on your cell phone, it didn't happen.

Every now and then you hear about some Muslim countries that say a man can't rape his wife.

That used to happen here. That's why there's nothing wrong with revising the standard to make sure it's understood that matrimony is no rape accusation shield. So it's ok to go as far as they want there.

What I'm asking is if there is any standard for actual consent. Or at least, non-criminality in sexual activity. Cause I don't think there is one. I think that the Puritan PC Police controlling our society through the kids that we've closed off blue collar work to won't stop. There is no bright line around which they will draw a boundary and say, "Ok. Now THAT IS consent!"

And that's because their motivation is anti-sex. And anti-nature. Not anti-rape.

Yes. I'm with you on this. I'd be happy with a gal or guy who keeps their word. Someone with good character is rare in politics, however.

California is a dual consent recording state. Unless Trump and whoever recorded this consented to be recorded it is illegal to record/release this. Not that legality has ever bothered a Clinton or the Democrats.

This is why I suggest you go some distance afield and find a good woman elsewhere to marry.

William said...

Something like this would finish off Pence. For Trump, it's baked into the cake. This is just the first wave. There will be other, juicier items. Any girl with a story to tell about Bill Clinton knows by now to keep her mouth shut. On the other hand, any girl with a story to tell about Donald Trump will be honored and richly rewarded. They're both players but the game is rigged in Clinton's favor.......It doesn't sound creepy so much as outlandish and jocular. It was private talk. For me, at least, these revelations generate more sympathy than disgust. You just know that if Bill Clinton had even been caught on a hot mic NBC would not be releasing the audio any time soon. Newsweek tried to bury the Monica story before Drudge scooped them........The revelations about Hillary are said to be from the Russians and only traitors would pay any attention to them. A true patriotic American would ignore them.

Lol. I KNOW that. Not arguing. Agreeing through personal experience. There are a couple in the U.S. that are at least dateable, if not marriageable. But I would be very careful. Make sure she earns at least 75% of what you do, at the least - if you want to go there. Either that or pre-nup. This is the land of opportunism; you've GOT to protect your assets. Love is expensive here, marriage is cheap. And vindictiveness is the surest path to success.

buwaya said...

"Congress controls the money, without which there is no power."

Not anymore they don't. They can't afford to buck the executive who can threaten them with a shutdown, which he(or she) completely controls. The system is much too important for too many people to make this politically viable.

They can't even pick & choose what parts to fund and not fund. The executive can retaliate, easy-peasy, just make it a horrorshow with something vital.

And, as the system controls the press (or the parts of it with the balance of political influence, so far) and the schools, and all the bien pensants, the interpretation of all this will be under the executives control.

You have an authoritarian system with no checks&balances.

The Cracker Emcee said...

Good thing that Hillary's such a girl scout. Hey, those women she trashed and defamed were sluts! Which means they somehow must have had it coming. Including Bill's unwanted advances.

The type of advances no one's accused Trump of making.

" If not, they can crap on the executive around the clock. Did you sleep through 2006-08?"

I think I was awake, though I may have misunderstood my condition, as usual.

Anyway, it all depends on who controls the press. No Republicans or conservatives will get fair treatment no matter what, the entire system is centrally controlled. It does not matter a bit if the executive is popular, the Democrat does not need to be sold to the publicity machine that's his organizational ally. This is a corporatist system.

wildswan said...

Name any bad thing Trump is supposed to have done and Bill with Hillary did it worse and also they did things Trump has never done. They stole more, corrupted more people at a higher level, attacked more women, ruined a political party, lowered the tone of political life, cynically exploited black loyalty, did trade deals that were bad for Americans in return for cash payoffs, supported abortion, betrayed allies, abandoned the ambassador and his protectors, jailed innocent people.

The Wapo doesn't put these things on the front page but these are all things that did happen or are happening to people. And more and worse will happen to people if Hillary is elected and the Wapo won't cover those events either.

So I see the lefty outrage as selective. Today - bad Trump. Tomorrow for the same thing but worse - good Hillary. And if they can disregard the steaming pile of manure that is piled in the Bill and Hill past then we can disregard the smaller pile in the Trump past. And if we don't - then the USA will become just another group, just some people Bill and Hill can use, abuse and kick into the gutter. So choose the best you can get. I say Trump is the better choice.

Well then maybe they have a point, Matt. You actually think university PC culture is leading in this society? On sex, gender, class, or racial progress? I have a bridge to sell you if you do. Universities are following socially, not leading - and they're not even following well. And degrading themselves into a narrow concept of civic life where critical thinking makes no difference.

The universities have become a scam; their "scholarship" in the non-sciences no less so. You can't have a tripling of admissions and tuition rates, a complete shutting down of manufacturing and all non-college paths to a decent living and think that the quality of what goes on there wouldn't suffer. I'm surprised they don't print college diplomas on McDonalds receipts.

If you think this is a right-wing argument then more power to you. It's basic reality. Demand has outstripped what supply can do for it.

buwaya said...

"The universities have become a scam; their "scholarship" in the non-sciences no less so. "

True, in spades. This even in "good" schools, in the UC's.
The kids went to better high and middle schools than most of what they got in these fields as UC undergrads.

"I'm surprised they don't print college diplomas on McDonalds receipts."

In some schools they may as well. Warm body is all that's needed.

"If you think this is a right-wing argument then more power to you. It's basic reality"

True. The Soviet Union would not have tolerated the stupidity and laxness of US schools. They would have had their own version of PC but they certainly would have taught literature.

I don't know if ALL the problem is due to watering-down. You see the same low standards in K-12 where universal attendance was always the norm. And you see low standards even in colleges that, to the degree that SAT/ACT testing means something, have not reduced their intake standards. Still, you have a point about a great many, they have indeed relaxed intake standards.

Why is this comment getting such traction? I don't even get it. Who's the porn star? Both Trump and Hillary are in love with their own self-images, so I'd say both. But Hillary seems like getting paid for selling herself a lot more than Trump does. Trump doesn't mind walking away from a deal that he feels offended by. Can someone tell me when Hillary's ever walked away from a financial offer... of any sort?

I don't mind porn stars. "Whores" seem a little less savory, but who knows what's a "whore" any more in this money-means-everything-your-life-means-nothing culture. I do know that slut shaming is stupid - because the gatekeepers on who defines a slut are the girls in school who know how little they have to offer a guy other than the promise of what's between her legs. I think the sluts are actually better people, because they seem to be rightly more confident of their ability to impress with their personalities, intelligence and all the other things that AREN'T just between their legs. They don't look at their pussies as the last chance to impress - break glass only in case of emergency.

The problem is you are overthinking it. Trump's words here pretty much speak for themselves and just because some 'normal' people talk like doesn't mean it's not news and it doesn't mean women won't find them a tad offensive. You also have bigger fish to fry but they are meaningless because politics is gut level [and gutter level] most of the time. But we are free to be offended every so often. Clearly Republicans are offended by the Clintons but it's not as if their escapades have not been reported. Is there a voter alive who doesn't know about Bill's affairs? Some are offended while some are not. Same applies to Trump's words [and maybe actions?]. I call it a wash.

OK! now we know why the timing of this bullshit was so important! Hillary has GOT to keep her crimes off the front page, and this salacious crap is just the thing. Like throwing a dog a bone the media trips over their own feet to snap up 11 year old nonsense.
I have heard men talk like this all my life and no locker room was needed to set the stage. I will say it was more prevalent among "working class" guys. Go work a construction jobsite sometime. 99% of it was not true. Men often struggle for status and acceptance in male groups by saying things that shock their peers. This is no secret. I learned about this in college ban in the 1970's. Why are people acting so shocked?

Althouse called Trump an admitted practitioner of sexual assault. Talk about overthinking it. I call bullshit and a horrifying double-standard, given how much way more than circumstantial evidence there is of Clinton going beyond even his addiction to peccadilloes. Or feeling like a bad BOY! Or whatever his deal is. The media pounce reflex on Trump is wound so much more tightly than the reaction to Clinton (and his holier-than-thou wife's slut-shaming) as to be a farce.

But then, we are a slut-shaming society. Selling out, though? Selling out is awesome. Let's sell out the country, our feminist principles, whatever it takes. Winning is everything. Like I said though, at least Trump's not afraid to walk away from a deal.

Regardless, my criticism was more social and legal than political. But there you have it.
