(Context: Regarding Brett Kavanaugh)
1. Regrettably, the present circumstances require a GOP dance. Unless the red state Dems flip, they have to hold every vote to confirm Kavanaugh. The RINOs and others in tight election races have to at least give lip service to their liberal constituents that accusations of this nature are taken seriously. That entails a hearing to give both sides an opportunity to speak.
All of this is of course outrageously stupid. The facts show that this is CLEARLY a political hit, and the GOP, in a perfect world, should state so and confirm Kavanaugh immediately. Sadly, we have to live in a world where the ideal intersects with reality. So, IF the RINOs intend to vote for Kavanaugh but feel they've got to temporarily play the game, we'll have to live with it.
2. If unproven accusations are now the standard for disqualifying SCOTUS nominees, the GOP should start lining up women against all potential Democratic nominees if and when they occupy the White House.
EDIT: I should add, in case anybody didn't get it, that my tongue is firmly planted in my cheek.
3. Yet, she told her therapist that four males were involved. Her husband now says that the therapist was mistaken! She can't remember when it occurred, or why or how they had gotten together. This is supposed to be "extremely serious," to use Feinstein's faux outrage, yet she sat on it since July, never brought it up when Kavanaugh privately met with her, and of the 1,000 questions the Democrats submitted to Kavanaugh, not one of them mentioned this "extremely serious" allegation. Please.
Even if true, Kavanaugh was a minor who has passed three FBI background checks since becoming an adult. Couple that with the fact that Ford is a left-wing activist, this has all the trappings of fabrication. Moreover, if Kavanaugh was a minor, and no rape occurred, I couldn't care less.
