Biden's Accuser Must Have Watched A Lot Of "Mad Men."

Her story is straight out of Season 2, right down to the hallway. What she said happened, where she said it happened-it's all there in the script. The episode was "The Benefactors."

1. With an extra Biden-ism thrown in to make it sound better

That "Come on, man" from her quote about what he said sounds so b/s.

2. Sexual assault similar to her description is so widespread that similarity to other

encounters is unremarkable.

9. I'm talking about the actual physical description, which is also a common consensual sexual

activity.

3. I don't quite get the physial logistics of what she is claiming happened.

Not to be too graphic but unless you have no undies on (and even then...) its not easy to be thrust up against a wall, skirt pulled up and be digitally molested -it takes a iittle time and some tricky manuvering.

Plus when he is busy doing his business you still have your leg to knee him with and your two arms to poke his eyes out or try to press on his Adam's apple and break his hold on you and run away.

I just can't visualize it.

5. Sounds like the republican argument

Why didn''t she fight back! - used to discredit women reporting rape and sexual assault.

It is okay to say one believes Biden without using the old anti-women arguments which democrats denounce when they are being uttered by Republicans.

10. Sounds like the truth. Clearly we can't accept accusations from politically motivated women at

face value. Democrats are targets now.

15. Also, stockings were required then

As in, literally required. You would be reprimanded and sent to buy some and put them on if you came in barelegged. And no one ever came in barelegged more than once.

I had three friends serve as interns and aides during the time frame of 1988-1997. Stockings were as required for women as dress shirts were for men.

16. And as I recall, the stockings back then had reinforced crotches. At least the Hanes brand did.

7. Lots of shows lift from real life. Including writers bringing events that happened to them

into shows.

It's not like it's an unheard of thing by any means.

12. Yeah, all the misogyny shown in Mad Men never happened

No truth or real life there.

to my GF.

17. I watch it every day. It's become a habit.

Every time I hear her story I think of Don Draper and Bobbie Barrett.
