We Need a 'Have You No Sense of Decency?' Moment That Transcends Party Politics

Character assassination of those who have done no wrong damages America. Who will have the moral courage to stop it?

I think we can make a reasonable argument that the accusations of some kind of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh…

They have now hauled out the Mother of all Assassinations, the #MeToo, or the "Anita Hill" weapon. Except that the person who made the now 35-years-aged accusation is following a pattern of political witch hunts that rivals the most rabid McCarthy tactics from the 1950s. McCarthy weaponized anti-Communist hysteria--which admittedly had some basis in fact. Today the weapon of choice is sexual predation, which also has some basis in fact.
