20. yeah
I'm feeling that disconnect too...after all these myriad abuses of the Rethuglicans the big tipping point is a sex scandal? Not to say that sexual predation is not serious, just that I feel like I'm stuck in the Land of Literal Extremists. Children have to be threatened before people get what's going on? Maybe this narrow focus functions as the receptacle for bigger fears. A concrete outlet for frustration.

But what about all the people who have died already from the serial abuses of this administration? And those who will still suffer from it's misguided policies.

Can people really not see when they oppressed?
