This argument that one's "sexual problem" is a sickness rather than a vice is not new in American life. President Bill Clinton survived impeachment by relying on it. So perhaps we can understand why the fiend Castro should trot it out again.

Yet maybe we ought to turn our attention to the voters, at least to the Democratic voters, who are supporting these candidates despite their sexual aberrations. Bear in mind these sexual aberrations were committed against women! How do you explain that the very Democrats that declaim against the Republicans for waging a "war against women" are supporting candidates that harass women, traffic in women and publicly expose themselves to women?

I suggest that the answer is hypocrisy. Yet there has to be more to it than that. All the above abusers of women are Democrats. When a Republican gets caught misbehaving he generally is eliminated in his party's primary. Why are the above rogues Democrats? And another thing: Why are they disproportionately supported by women -- women who claim they are feminists? Is a modern-day feminist a woman waiting for her picture of Anthony Weiner's private part? That strikes me as bizarre.
