I'm not arguing the general premise, but politics is weird. If we elected people based on their skill set alone, this wouldn't be an issue. But a politician MUST appeal to more than a person's rational thought. "He seems like a guy I could have a beer with." They have just seconds to win a person over. Maybe we're entering a time when this touchy-feely tactic isn't going to be effective, but for certain politicians it's what got them where they are. In that light, this is less than zero as a sexual predation thing; it's more likely a political survival technique. Learned, mastered, worn out, and can be un-learned.

I will say this and it is not often I will give credit to either of the 2 parties, but it is commendable of the Democratic party that it is much more problematic  to be a suspected sexual predator of some degree in the Democratic party than the Republican.   On one level at least both parties are not being hypocritical in their relatively different responses to such incidents because the Republicans in general don't even pretend to be sympathetic to admitting that there is a long standing issue of rampant sexual abuse towards mostly women and children and the Democrats are and will call out their own ergo Biden is out and has no chance in the primary.  You either believe the women and put aside your partisan blinders (this goes for Trump supporters as well) or you don't.     Oh and to stay on topic, I would put Biden in the definite "You ain't going around my children" category at least, but there is no allegations I know of actual assault just your basic garden variety dirty old man copping feels off the girlies.   I think Bush Sr. pulled a few of those too.

Sexual assault is just fine as long as you do it as a private citizen. There are high standards (while in office) to maintain!

Blinkers it is.
 

Are you meaning to accuse Kurt of wearing 'blinders'?   I thought blinkers were red lights with magnetic bases that a tow truck operator sticks  on the deck lid of his repo.

anyway probably everybody needs blinkers one way or the other if you think about it...


I'm trading my blinders for an eye patch and setting sail on the pirate ship Periphery as soon as my new peg leg is ready. 

 

It's another term for the same thing, usually reserved for the adjectival because saying someone's "blindered" sounds weird so we might say Kurt's blinkered posting is causing trouble.
 

Anecdotally I took a chunk of concrete about the size and shape of a healthy slice of cheesecake packed in a snowball right between the eyes while stationed in Germany a minute ago. 17 stitches and a scar the shape of a cross to prove that at least something happened even if I am a good liar.  Lol.  Who needs ashes when an army story will work I always say.  I've been blindered more than once and molared a bunch of times.  I don't recommend it. Never blinkered though. Close.
So enough about me. What are we talking about? Oh yeah, ironing...

all of the things done by Trump were as a private citizen.  The things Biden has done that we are discussing were all done as either Vice President or Senator ...   Does not a higher standard of conduct apply to a federally elected office holder (while in office) than a private citizen ?  As touchy / feely as Trump was as a private citizen, he has in no way conducted himself improperly as POTUS.  There is a reason Biden is called Uncle Joe ...

No, I mean blinkers, as in blinkered. Used with skittish horses. But you can use blinders if you prefer those.
