The problem is that the Democrat position on the accusations against Kavanaugh and Biden is blatantly hypocritical. They are caught in the embarrassing position of trying to explain why the standards they so self-righteously proclaimed in the Kavanaugh case don’t apply to Biden. Biden and many of his prospective VP picks are twisting themselves into pretzels trying to explain it. The public loves seeing them squirm.
Democrats did not proclaim “listen to all women and the evaluate their story because the facts matter”: that is what the Republicans said. No, the Democrats proclaimed #BelieveAll Women. They also attacked due process. They loudly declared their belief in Dr. Blasey Ford, despite the lack of any specifics as to time, date, and place, the lack of any objective facts or evidence, and the lack of any contemporaneous communication to others about the incident. But when Tara Reade comes forward, they are quick to disbelieve her. Tara Reade has specific times, dates, places, and events, all absent in the Ford allegations. Her mother’s call in to Larry King is evidence of contemporaneous communication, again something missing in the Ford case.
Amazingly, in contradiction to their own position when they were attacking Kavanaugh, Democrats now insist on due process, evidence, and facts. No one is fooled. Democrats believe in whatever gets their guy off the hook and makes the other guy look bad. There is no set of neutral, intellectually coherent standards that can reconcile their inconsistent reactions to accusations against Kavanaugh and Biden. It is entertaining to watch them trying to make it all sound legit.
