Dworkin is a dwork. Why the hell was she not at Kathleen Willey's side denouncing the President? Why was she not at Paula Jones' side? Why is she not now at Ms. Broaddrick's side, shouting from the rooftops for the bobbitting of slick Willey? She's an opportunistic manipulative man hater who knows that Bill plays the same gambit she does. And she's too arrogant to actually be seen on the same side of the aisle as the conservatives. She was embarrassed enough when it happened over pornography.

Hearsay is inadmissable. Always has been, and hopefully always will be. One good thing to come out of the failed impeachment is that the whole 'harassment' scam so many women have been pulling has been nullified. I can't imagine anyone winning a case now that Bill got off even with evidence such as the dress against him.

better yet, women who make such spurious claims should face countersuits for frivolous tort.

Encryption is pretty much accepted in these parts as a primary need for privacy. There are still the total openness hangers on who cannot be conviced, like Halperin, Brin, et al. Its a long ended battle. There really isn't much new to argue about.
