Title: Teenage Drunken Fumbling is Disqualifying, Mod Addtion to fix merge. But only if you're a Conservative, of course. I mean, of course. This is your daily reminder that if you're a Democrat, you can beat up your girlfriend on Domestic Violence charges and the Left won't whisper a peep. Heck, you can engage in shenanigans in the Oval Office with an intern and be impeached and STILL be lauded as a great statesman decades later. But if your record is spotless save for one woman who says, 36 years later, that you once did things with her she didn't like, when you were both drunk and you were 17--your ship is sunk. But again: only if you're Conservative. This would be laughed off if you were a Democrat, because of COURSE you did those things. They'd call you Uncle Brett for it. Maybe they'd wonder why you didn't drive her into a lake. Mod Note: Nothing to do with this post.
