Can’t Keep My Hands to Myself
When you think that the Democratic Party can’t go any lower they dive into another dimension and prove us all wrong. For a man who has already failed in spectacular fashion at running for president he decides to lock himself up in his mancave and persist that “third time's the charm.”
Joe Biden is being accused of Lucy Flores of lude behavior during a rally. He gave her a peck on the back of her head at a rally which is a little weird, but then you realize Biden has a history of this kind of behavior.
There seems to be a certain level of intellectual dishonesty with this whole situation. Let us pass the obvious by saying what Biden did was inappropriate. Now, it seems the only reason why Biden was accused and is now being attacked is that he’s running for president. I don’t think we can say with a straight face that people like Elizabeth Warren would be attacking Biden if he wasn’t open to running.
This whole fiasco seems to have alarming similarities to Brett Kavanaugh, who if you don't remember was accused of raping a woman during his teen years. Don't get me wrong, kissing some on the back of the head and rape are two completely different things. We can see through the blatant hypocrisy and “get out of jail free card” that is given to Biden that wasn’t given to Kavanaugh.
As far as I’ve seen we don’t have evidence of this actually happening outside of the victim's testimony so once again both sides are equally believable. To the people who that say Kavanaugh case was different, please ask yourself why. Outside of the different parties how is this situation different from the other?
This story just goes to show that if you've invested in any other candidate but Bernie it’s time to sell sell sell.
Any attack on a candidate ultimately helps Bernie who has been consistently a solid candidate when it comes to approval rating. You can take a look at the polls here:

Sanders has been consistently within the 20-30 percent margin which is good for a primary with 1,000,000 people running.
Bernie has also been able to steal African American votes from Cory Booker and Kamala Harris, candidates who need that vote if they want any taste of the white house.
Bernie is the one who needs to be attacked, he is the “thought leader” of the party. If the other nominees want to win they need to attack the true target, Bernie Sanders.
