How is being a Democrat similar to being a weak-willed person on a diet? Just as the hapless dieter will end a day of near-starvation with a half-gallon of ice cream, the Democrats cheerfully suspend the strict moral code they preaches when convenience dictates.

We saw that in the party’s very different treatment of Christine Blasey Ford and Tara Reade, both of whom claimed to have been raped by an individual running for high public office. And we saw it on night two of the Democratic convention when former Pres. Bill Clinton was given five minutes of air time.

What Clinton spoke about was of little consequence. You can watch it here if you are of a mind to. What is key is that Clinton is an unrepentant abuser of women, yet the Dems had no qualms about carting him out for a speech. Once again, #MeToo was suspended because it was politically expedient to do so. Even Tara Reade, Biden’s accuser, commented on the decision.

Apart from all the unaddressed accusations leveled against Clinton by his alleged victims during his stint as Arkansas governor or his two terms as president, new information has emerged showing that the former president’s womanizing days continued far after his return to private life. Flight logs from friend Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 unearthed in 2019 reveal that Bill Clinton was a passenger on the “Lolita Express” far more than previously known.
