7. I wish I could believe that sexual harassment and assault followed party lines...

...but I can't. We can be outraged when our Dems are revealed to be flawed, but let's not be too surprised.

I'm partisan enough to believe in an extra layer of hypocrisy common in Republican candidates and officials--their very platform is abusive and disdainful on its face, particularly regarding women and minorities--that seems to make their crimes more numerous and worse. Whataboutism, though, is going to have a very good year, because for every eight GOP predators unmasked, there will probably be three Democrats.

(Participation and severity may vary. Consult your local women for details.)
