Good riddance. We need to stop rallying behind such obviously false idols. Hah. Remember when Stormy Daniels lawyer was lauded as a future President?

I don’t think anyone rallied behind him? Except his lawyer and that top aide who just quit. And his brother.August 10, 2021 at 12:15 pm #1096499Prognosti-gatorParticipant
This is what my “right”-leaning friends don’t get. They think that this shows that the “left” is just as bad as the “right” when it comes to responding to sexual abuse.
Except, looking at this: the sitting president (same party – D) called on Cuomo to resign.
When Roy Moore was running for office amidst a scandal involving trolling the mall for underage girls … the sitting president (same party – R) actively campaigned for him!
It’s worlds different.August 10, 2021 at 1:41 pm #1096501BittergaymarkGuest
Please. Only last year everybody worshipped the ground he walked on. People clamoured for him to run for President. He was America’s Governor. Blah blah blah. And it was all — bullshit. He was just corrupt as all the rest.August 10, 2021 at 1:52 pm #1096503BittergaymarkGuest
Ar any rate — we need to vet people better. Much, much better.August 10, 2021 at 1:53 pm #1096504Prognosti-gatorParticipant
“Only last year everybody worshipped the ground he walked on.”
Before people knew about the scandal.
They liked him.
That’s the problem?
I agree that we shouldn’t put people on pedestals. Venerate ideas, not people.
But I fail to see how changing your mind about someone once you learn about despicable things they’ve done is a bad thing. Would it be better if they kept on venerating him in spite of it? Or, do they need to have precognition and know about it ahead of time?
Edit: and yes on the vetting. Unfortunately, politics does seem to draw out the worst people. Only the truly self absorbed seem to be drawn to those positions of power.

Cuomo has been an insufferable ass for years. Years. Incredibly corrupt. Yet we are only now hearing about the endless scandals as everybody was too damn busy kissing his pampered ass.
That is ongoing the failure of the Democrats.
We need to start electing better people. We need to stop nominating the gleeful enablers who spout outright lies to defend theie scumbag husbands while gleefully lauching their own careers. (Yeah. You all know who I am talking about here.)
Later, Cuomo. Oh? And seriously — a big fuck off to his talentless CNN brother, too.August 11, 2021 at 4:31 am #1096531KateKeymaster
Oh haha of course this was about Hillary. Who, as I recall, did not get elected.August 11, 2021 at 7:36 am #1096534BittergaymarkGuest
And thus saddled us with Trump and brought us all to where we are now with thus unending Hell of a fucked up pandemic response. Much of this ongoing madness is the direct result of Trump in the White House. It wouldn’t have been this bad under ANYBODY else.August 11, 2021 at 7:39 am #1096535BittergaymarkGuest
But the grim Irony that Bill Clinton did things far worse than Cuomo and that Hillary gleefully villianized his accusers in the press remains rather disturbing to me.
It baffles me how this is STILL glossed over.August 11, 2021 at 8:11 am #1096539ktfranParticipant
I honestly don’t think any democrat would have beat Trump. In 2016, who were our options? Hillary and Bernie? I’m sorry, but I don’t think Bernie would have won the election either. So can we please stop with the rhetoric that Trump winning is all her fault?
