It’s just like John Edwards said.
In one America, if you do something wrong, you (often) get arrested, tried, and if (hopefully) guilty, you get punished.
In another America, if you’re friends with big enough people, then your crimes aren’t really “crimes”.
Like if you are a good Saint Paul DFLer who was implicated in a murder in the seventies but have been an impeccable liberal worker-bee ever since.
Or if you have powerful and famous friends.
Behold modern “Feminism” at work:
[Whoopi] Goldberg, star of The Color Purple and Sister Act, said: “I know it wasn’t rape-rape. I think it was something else, but I don’t believe it was rape-rape.
“He pled guilty to having sex with a minor and he went to jail, and when they let him out he said ‘You know what, this guy’s going to give me 100 years in jail. I’m not staying’. And that’s why he left.” Polanski was arrested in Zurich, Switzerland on Sunday and faces extradition to the United States. He fled the US in 1978 before being sentenced for the crime and has been pursued around the globe by prosecutors ever since.
Someone needs to pass the word Polanski’s a Republican. That’ll fix ’em.
