The Hayride: At this point it’s worth wondering how many of the great comedy movies of the 1970’s and 1980’s today’s Democrats are going to turn into precursors of actual political events.
Tonight, with the Deborah Ramirez allegations, it appears the current movie reference will be Porky’s, the politically correct and wildly hilarious flick written and directed by Bob Clark.
Ramirez, like Christine Ford a partisan Democrat who describes herself as a social justice warrior, is featured in a New Yorker article containing the claim that when she and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh were freshmen at Yale, he exposed himself to her at a drinking party.
