    She was asked a question and answered it.

    I don't believe her only options are to lie, or go full scorched-earth on her Senate colleagues.

    Well sure, anyone can say anything they want without providing evidence. But they are due no more respect in their claim than this guy:

    If she doesn't care to provide any names or any evidence of wrong doing she shouldn't go around making claims. Sorry, but if she refuses to provide evidence or any names of wrong doing then I'm going to consider it a political ploy and nothing more.

    She answered a question. And for some reason, you're convinced that the ONLY option she has to "do something about it" is to publicly name names and accuse her Senate colleagues of misdeeds, even if unprovable beyond a claim of 'she said/he said.' Based on my experiences, that's a stupid strategy unless your goal is to burn your bridges and go to work somewhere else.
    She has already made a claim against the males in the Senate, so unless she wants to be seen as a liar she better get to naming exactly which males she has a problem with.

    Well, that's a good point, because it's totally an extraordinary claim to make that the Senate retains some vestiges of the Good Old Boys Club that it's been for over 200 years, and that some Senators remain coddled, entitled, male chauvinists!! I mean, that's, like, totally hard to believe.

    Warren is asked question. Responds in a way that should have everyone not living in an alternate universe saying, "no sh*t - and tonight some Senator will get drunk. What else is new." I'm missing what the problem is.

    Right....when a woman claims harassment, especially in private conversations, she is supposed to provide evidence of it when relating her experience...because otherwise, even if she is a respected public official, she has no standing.

    She is not nearly as clever as she thinks.
    Liz Warren is playing the gender card and do I understand you to say that's not playing by the rules?
    If so, then excuse me but ... is BO Barack Obama?
    And is one of the rules not playing the race card?
    And you're claiming BO, his campaigns, and his Party have played by that rule?

    Or am I woefully misunderstanding you?

    Well, that's certainly a reasonable position..... After all, when asked a question, a proper lady would either start naming names and going full on scorched earth with direct accusations and a list of wrongful acts, or keep her pretty little mouth shut.

    So if a woman goes to a party and is raped by one guy do think it would be right of her to later say those men at the party raped me? Would that not be accusing all the men at the party of rape?
