The Kavanaugh nomination is already weighed-down with all sorts of atypical problems.
An allegation of sexual misconduct against a powerful male is typically followed by a chorus of similar accusations, as in the case of Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, et. al. Thus, #MeToo. But the allegation against Kavanaugh was immediately rejected by a lot of women who know him and have worked closely with him.
Both Kavanaugh and his accuser enjoy good, hard-earned professional reputations.
False eyewitness accounts are known to occur; they have even put defendants on death row.
The alleged event occurred at a teenage drinking party; there is sound reason to question the accuracy of accounts of what occurred.
The accuser named a witness — and the witness’ denials are equivocal.
Given all that, I don’t fault Senators for wondering how to vote and trying to sort-out what they think of this unhappy situation.
But this, from a Holy Man no less, serves no purpose but to blacken Ford’s name and stoke a sense of grievance among those impatient to see Roe overturned.
Kavanaugh accuser’s motive revealed!!
Christine Blasey Ford, who suddenly remembered that 36 years ago, as a teenager in high school, Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, also a high school student at that time, attempted to rape her. She also tried to convince us all that he was a fall down drunk at the time. [emphasis in original]
No, Ford did not suddenly remember. She took a lie detector test about the attempted rape years ago, and there are confirming notes from a psychologist.
Naturally all the left leaning media headlined this story for days on end in an attempt to torpedo Brett Kavanagh’s Supreme Court confirmation which Communist Democrats fear would end Roe Vs. Wade which legalized the cruel slaughter of millions of pre-born babies.
Got slurs, Reverend Miles? And how is an allegation of attempted rape by a Supreme Court nominee not worthy of headlines?
It’s true that the Pious can’t risk being finicky about facts, and their entire enterprise rests upon slurs. (Y’all are no damn good. You were born no damn good, and you can never be any damn good.) By even the dismal standards of the Godly, though, this is over the top. Whatever else might be said about this latest rhubarb in our civic life, at least we’ve got yet another example of the squalor and corruption of the Evangelical Right.
