Two tidbits from the NPR report regarding the alleged sexual harassment charges against the Republic party’s newest “golden boy.” (I tried to write that without irony; what is the typing-on-a-laptop equivalent of snorting coffee out your nose?)
1. He claims not to remember the woman who has come forward with allegations regarding him groping her in a car as she was talking with him about getting a job. But then he claims that she is a disturbed person, and one who is apparently in some kind of financial difficulties. Interesting how much he knows about someone he doesn’t “know.”
2. He also claims that the Democratic “machine” is at work trying to undermine his legitimacy. There is no Democratic machine. That’s probably the biggest single thing that prevents them from competing with Republicans in political machination-type activities. Sheesh. He might want to make the argument that a Presidential candidate for one of the world’s most powerful and influential countries doesn’t need to know the name of Uzbeki-beki-beki-stan, but he should at least know that.
Maybe he’s just not paying attention.
