Both Siderism Sinks to a New Low

In a miserable article from the Washington Post about today's Republican resort to a criminal libel against a totally innocent man to try to cover up the degraded nature of their Supreme Court nominee:

"On Thursday night, a conservative legal scholar took to Twitter to suggest a man who looked like Brett Kavanaugh, rather than Kavanaugh himself, might have sexually assaulted Christine Blasey Ford 36 years ago. The scholar, Ed Whelan, even named the man and provided a recent picture...
It also epitomizes how the Kavanaugh imbroglio has become extremely ugly — and is likely to get even uglier.
...With the stakes so high, the facts so fungible and the clock ticking louder, it’s almost a perfect storm for ugliness. And it’s hardly over."

At no point in this article is it never acknowledged that the crime (and it is a crime against all of us, given the stakes) was perpetrated solely by Republicans.  No, it's just that things have gotten ugly, and everyone involved is at fault, the victims as well as the perpetrator.  In fact, this outrageous coverage is compounded ten times over by allowing the perpetrator of this crime to justify himself by blaming the Democrats for his own hatefulness:

“It is regrettable that private citizens are being drawn into this,” Whelan said Thursday night,...But that is the product of [Senate Judiciary Committee’s top Democrat Dianne] Feinstein’s shockingly shoddy handling of the whole matter.”

There is not one attempt to present a contrary Democratic view of this Republican abomination.  And the Washington Post is what passes for a leader of the "liberal press." So, that is how a "political party" which is nothing but a corrupt conspiracy to steal the wealth of the nation manages to still win elections in our country.

Your last paragraph says it all about the Democrats. I'm disgusted with everything.
