Who counts

What’s the weather like down there in the bottom of the barrel?

Bill Cosby’s lawyers said Tuesday that the comedian — who will stand trial in June for allegedly drugging and sexually molesting a woman — is a victim of “racial bias.”

What does that sound like – oh yes, O J Simpson’s lawyers claiming that the prosecution of Simpson was “racial bias” when in fact the LA police had been cutting him way too much slack for years.

It sounds like angry, entitled men who destroy or damage women and when caught pretend they’re the ones being wronged.

“For Mr. Cosby, this is a version of the ‘shoot now, ask questions later’ approach to judicial justice that you’re seeing in the streets,” defense lawyer Angela Agrusa told reporters outside a Pennsylvania courthouse.

Because arrest and prosecution are the same thing as shooting now, except for the shooting now part.

[Attorney Gloria] Allred, who just held a press conference in California calling for the elimination of the statute of limitations for rape and sexual assault, dismissed the Cosby lawyers’ claims as an act of desperation by Cosby.

“He complains about racial bias but what about the African American women whom I represent who accuse him of sexual assault or rape and who refuse to remain silent about what they say they have suffered?” Allred said in a statement issued Tuesday evening.

They don’t count, because they’re not Bill Cosby. Bill Cosby is important. They’re not.
