    She is absolutely correct. Tara Reade is far more credible than Blasey Ford. That's why her story should be taken more seriously.

    Wow, she is right again! D.C. doesn't care about the truth. She should just publish the headline because her reporting is all downhill from there.

    Gorsuch was a much better choice than Kavanaugh for reasons unrelated to the allegations, I'll agree with that.

    It's not clear if that was an admitted assault. "They let you grab them" could mean "When you're rich and powerful, you can do that without permission and they'll have to let you get away with it" or "Women consent to a lot more stuff when you're rich and powerful". Both of which are largely accurate evaluations of reality. I don't have any idea which he was referring to.

    Followed by people coming up with dozens and dozens of examples of when they did in fact say "all".

    So if it is your assumption, isn't it your assumption for ALL? Sounds like that is inferred. Her argument is worth as much as Blaisey Ford's accusations.

    I have no idea who used the term "all" or left it ambiguous. The double standard is very clear. With Ford, they accepted her story as fact despite overwhelming evidence to reject it. With Reade, they focused mostly on the evidence to reject it (which was a tiny fraction of what existed in Ford's allegation). Once they couldn't deny her story with a straight face, they decided they didn't care if she was telling the truth. Like I mentioned before, they've essentially admitted that their outrage about sexual assault has nothing to do with sexual assault. It is a political tool - nothing more.

    Don't worry, the Twitter thread is full of tons of people answering that question.

    The argument over the word "all" is a classic diversion.

    More importantly it infers to disbelieve some women namely those accusing Democrats of sexual assault.

    They can dress it up all they want. They can spin all they want. They can rationalize all they want.

    Their positions changed because the accused is a D rather than an R. Period. End of story.
