OMG: Is Spartacus’ presidential bid doomed?

By his own account, Booker is guilty!
=============

Here’s a gut-check for for Democratic moralists.

I initially wrote “integrity check” but quickly realized how silly that would sound.

Let’s assume for a moment that Kavanaugh is guilty of the unproven and unsubstantiated allegations.

And, let’s accept the premise that unwanted groping is – at any age – attempted rape.

And, let’s conclude that attempted rape is disqualifying for the highest offices in the U.S. government.

OK, that disqualifies Kavanaugh for the SCOTUS.

But, it also disqualifies Sen. Booker for the presidency.

Here’s the story

===============

According to NJ.com:

In 1992. when Booker was a student at Stanford University he wrote a na article in the Stanford Daily headlined So much for stealing second.

In the article, Booker wrote:

New Year’s Eve 1984 I will never forget. I was 15.

As the ball dropped, I leaned over to hug a friend and she met me instead with an overwhelming kiss.

As we fumbled upon the bed, I remember debating my next ‘move’ as if it were a chess game.

With the ‘Top Gun’ slogan ringing in my head, I slowly reached for her breast.

After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my ‘mark.’

The groping ended soon and while no ‘relationship’ ensued, a friendship did.

You see, the next week in school she told me that she was drunk that night and didn’t really know what she was doing.

Let’s dissect that statement…

The girl was drunk.

Booker groped her.

The girl pushed his hand away indicating “no”.

He continued until he “ reached his mark”.

The “incident” ended before further advances.

One difference, in Booker’s case, the facts are not disputable.

He confessed to his #MeToo offense.

Applying the Democrats standard of behavior, Booker should be disqualified from the presidency, right?

Unless …

1) Fifteen year old boys get a pass, but seventeen year old boys  don’t (<= a weird adaptation of the “age of majority”)

2) Confessing makes things right (<= a rationalization the Catholic boys have used for centuries).

3) Democrats are  hypocrites who shift their morals based on politics.

I’m leaning towards #3 until I hear the Dem moralists give Booker his real Spartacus moment.

    Since you have yet to call on Trump for not only sexually assaulting women but bragging about, you have no standing for making calls

  2. Cameron Carr Says:

    it seems to me that you’ve missed the main point of ‘consent’ that differentiates Booker’s potential offense from Kavanaugh’s alleged behavior. Booker’s account of his incident reads more like an innocent (if drunken) encounter between consenting teenagers. There is no accuser stepping forward to assert that his advances were unwanted. Kavanaugh’s alleged behavior is markedly more aggressive, and the issue of consent is made moot by the formal accusations of assault. Age and inebriation are just red herrings; until someone accuses Booker of assault, their behaviors should not be viewed as equally disqualifying.
