    With it more and more likely he is confirmed there are reports, should they take Congress, D’s will impeach Kavanaugh. (And, presumably, Trump as well)
    Plenty room for shame in the future.

    I think Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill would be a better metaphor, except that Ford’s case is stronger and the alleged crime is of a far greater magnitude in Kavanaugh’s case – but the result will be the same.

    It did happen 35 years ago, so it’s relevance would be very questionable if it was strictly a he said, she said situation, but there appears to be more evidence than that. Debra Ramirez makes a similar claim and also says there were witnesses present. In addition, if the notes of Ford’s counselor predating the nomination corroborate with her story, it would be convincing evidence that she believes it to be true. She also passed a lie detector test.

    I also understand that there are two more accusers, making a total of 4. Julie Swetnick is one. Elizabeth Rasor, has written to the Senate Judiciary Committee to say that she’s willing to speak with the FBI about what she learned from the nominee’s high-school wingman, Mark Judge, who was implicated by two of the three women and is Rasor’s former boyfriend. A subpoena of Mark Judge should be mandatory, but will of course, be neglected for the sake of power politics.

    Regardless of whether events of 35 years ago are relevant, there is one issue that is. Kavanaugh emphatically denied the accusations. If he was lying, then he would deserve the same treatment as Bill Clinton. The difference is that Clinton was engaged in a perfectly legal and common, if somewhat immoral act. Kavanaugh is accused of committing far more egregious acts – crimes, in fact.

    The shame is upon Republicans and Conservatives who advocate ignoring the evidence regarding Kavanaugh, not because it doesn’t merit investigation, but because Kavanaugh is on their team. This is reminiscent of the trials of African Americans in the deep south decades ago. Regardless of the evidence, those in charge dependably claimed that it just wasn’t enough to merit investigation. My hope is that women will react by voting against Republicans in this election.

    Not since “we have to pass the Patriot Act before we can tell you what is in it” have republicans so corrupted the democratic processes typically afforded weighty decisions like the appointment for life of a Supreme Court “Justice”.

    It is inexplicable that given the testimony of Ms. Ford, that republicans, rather than investigate the weighty charges against him, most importantly that he may have perjured himself, that the republicans are rushing this nominee through the process.

    These bumper sticker slogans, proferred by the right, as the “reasons” for their disregard of the American people and any pretense of “advise and consent” (I mean, how can you “consent” to something without full knowledge? You can’t in American law, but apparently you can if you are 51 republican senators and a far right wing electoral victor).

    This is a disgrace that will not be forgotten by the American public.

  4. Investigate what? There are no witnesses and no evidence to investigate.

  5. Anonymous says:

    What do you mean no witnesses? Ford testified about several people that were present at a party where the alleged assault happened most particularly Mark Judge.

    And this doesn’t even begin to address the other allegations, and the witnesses that may have evidence regarding the specific allegations those two other woman have made. Not to mention witnesses from Yale like the fellow classmate who today came out and stated that Kavanaugh blatantly lied about his drinking habits and tendency to forget what he did while he was drunk.

    Additionally, you now have the American Bar Association arguing that the hearings and confirmation ought to be delay while an investigation is conducted.

    Can’t imagine as conservative an organization as the ABA suggesting that an investigation be done if there was “no witnesses, and no evidence to investigate” as you suggest.

    And what’s the rush to confirm a man to a position that he could hold for life?

    “And what’s the rush to confirm a man to a position that he could hold for life?”

    Kavanaugh’s current court is a lifetime position.

  7. Linda Sanders says:

    Utterly ridiculous! Big waste of time and taxpayers money just to make the Dems look ignorant!

  8. HighflyinBrien says:

    How can one read the WSJ article by Kimberly Strassel “The Kavanaugh Stakes” without paying for a subscription? I’ve heard it details what the validation of ambush tactics and the foolishness of Jeff Flake will do…while jettisoning due process and the presumption of innocence?

  9. Anonymous says:

    If anyone believes that doing an investigation, of a man that may sit on the nations highest court for life, to determine whether he perjured himself by denying the allegation that he attempted to rape a woman, makes Democrats look ignorant, I await the verdict of the voters.

  10. HighflyinBrien says:

    Dang…it took me to the paywall!

  11. Steve says:

    Wow, it did me too. When I used that link.
    So I tried my google search again. “kavanaugh stakes”
    Clicked the first link, it goes direct to the piece.
    The link was in a box and it took me straight to her opinion piece, again and again.
    Gotta do the search and click the link from that page. At least, it works for me.

  12. HighflyinBrien says:

    Thanks Steve…got to it on the “real clear politics” link at the bottom of the page! Jeff Flake just legitimized all of the underhanded, disgusting, and ruthless tactics enumerated in the article that has been put into play by the progressive left kneecap squad. Jeff “Judas” Flake…whose last name is descriptive of his character…is from Snowflake, AZ. Go figure…

    We all do
