    Sure, but the reaction to this "story" is nonsense, and judging her for some unflattering pic that someone snapped of her is silly. All this and the stupid Native American thing is manna for those who would eat their young before voting for her, but outside of that bloc it's all noise to everyone else. If there was a legitimate criticism of her policies in this thread it was the proverbial needle in the haystack.

I'm not clear what you think she should have said.

    Look, if she'd named any name or event not on videotape in HD, the same right wingers whining about her on this thread would be blowing a gasket about her unsubstantiated specific claims. We all know that's true.
    I'm sorry you can't see or understand my point. There's always hope that in the future you will.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

The allegations she made against him were lame at best. But she was a 'hero' for the cause. So was Sandra Fluke.
    I wasn't vouching for accuracy of Hills accusation. I was pointing out how sexual harassment in the workplace came out of the shadows due to her arrival on the scene. Good things actually came out of the Anita Hill fiasco whether she was honest in her charges or not. Tawana Brawley was proven to have been lying. That isn't true for Anita Hill

    LMAO... I think it's fairer to say that "leftists" recognize lies fall on some very, very long continuum, from those that are helpful, harmless, serious in rare cases and on the other end very harmful, poisonous to society, and/or reflecting something fundamentally dishonest or corrupt about the person making a false claim.

    "Lying" about being part Cherokee falls on the "harmless" end of the scale in my humble opinion. There isn't a person, certainly not a politician, who hasn't 'lied' more times that he or she can count about something. Someone will have to point out to me why I should care about this claim of Warren's of her part Cherokee heritage. I've made similar claims 100 times over the years with no more than what my mother has told me as evidence. If that turns out to be false, does that really reflect on my character?

    I watched the video. Is there some sort of rule or regulation that says I am supposed to quote her? Did you? She implied she was treated unfairly and then flatly refused to go any further. Thats chicken **** behavior. If it is enough of a problem to address it then address it. If you are unwilling to address it, then maybe you are the problem.

    Had then confirmation chairman Senator Biden actually offered the items available during a hearing, they would have been. Both sides were pretty upset with his handling of the situation.

    Yes, I've quoted her a half dozen times, the entire exchange. The point is didn't 'imply' anything. She was asked a direct question - treated DIFFERENTLY because you're a woman? - to which she replied "Yes." Care to elaborate? "Nope."

    What do you expect?

    I expect her to kick a little ass and change things. Or whine about it like a little bitch. Whatever. Maybe she is just used to the Kennedy way in the Senate.

    Look, it is patently obvious that there are only two things that can be drawn from this:

    1) She is making it up out of thin air because she thought it might help her politically

    2) It is true but the poor treatment was by Democrats so she doesn't want to blow the whistle (aka. "Pulling a Gillibrand")
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
