Representative Kevin Cramer (R.-asshole) is running against Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D.-Minn.). Comparing Dr. Blasey Ford’s claims to those of Anita Hill, Rep. Cramer recently said,
“This case is even more absurd because these people were teenagers when this supposed alleged incident took place; teenagers,” he emphasized.
“These are teenagers who evidently were drunk, according to her own statement,” he continued. Blasey has said that both boys were “stumbling drunk” while she had had a single beer.
“They were drunk. Nothing evidently happened in it all, even by her own accusation,” Cramer added. “Again, it was supposedly an attempt, or something, that never went anywhere.”
Cramer warned that it’s going to be difficult to get “good people” for judgeships and government jobs if “this is going to be the standard — if you have to have a perfect record in junior high and high school.”
I am sorry that Representative Cramer feels this way.
But since he does feel this way, I am glad that he is saying out loud that pretty much the entire male population has attempted to rape someone. And they are all entitled to a free pass.
The rule that every male teenager is entitled to at least one attempted rape is analogous to the well-known legal doctrine that every dog is entitled to one bite.
Keep it up, fellas. And we’ll see you in November.
