I See We Are Now Holding Joe Biden's Feet to the Fire. [View all]

I remember when we did that to Barack Obama, too. And Hillary Clinton. It appears that it is a tradition on DU to do that to all Democratic presidential candidates who are not the preferred nominee in some people's minds.

This time, it's an accusation that dates back to 1993, made by a woman who has a long history of accusing people of such things. There is no real evidence that any such sexual assault occurred, but that doesn't matter. The accusation has been made, so we must post dozens of times about what a bad thing such an accusation is for our presumptive nominee.

We must pick it all apart, again and again to keep it on everyone's minds. Never mind that the Republicans will be doing the same thing. It is our tradition to dig up every possible piece of dirt on the person we are nominating as our candidate for President.

How, I wonder, does that make any sense?
