If you are looking for serious, sober political analysis, The View probably isn't on your DVR subscriptions. This week, Joy Behar gave a perfect example of why, as well as an insight into the liberal mindset, when she said that she would vote for a rapist as long as the rapist would vote for her agenda.
"Republicans have voted against the Violence Against Women Act. That to me is more ipmortant than anything Bill Clinton did or didn't do. Because it's what she's going to vote for, how she's going to lead the country that matters more than that."
Chappaquiddick. I mean, a girl drowned and he abandons her and she drowned and women still voted for Teddy Kennedy. Why? Because he voted for women’s rights. That’s why. That’s the bottom line of it in my opinion. I mean, I don’t like either one of them, to tell you the truth, Teddy or Bill. They’re both dogs as far as I’m concerned. But I still will vote for Bill Clinton because he votes in my favor.
Rape? Murder? Not a problem. Just check the correct box and you're good to go.
This is not a new concept on the left. Remember Robert Byrd? Klansman. That's fine.
In fact, it's not even new with regard to Kennedy. HuffPo ran an article calling Mary Jo Kopechne a "footnote" who would have thought her death "worth it" to get the votes the left got from Teddy.
You can hate. You can rape. You can drown. Just vote my way. That's the liberal mindset, and it always has been. The agenda is everything, because politics is everything.
