The Senate Judiciary Committee majority (Republicans) has released a 414 page report on the Kavanaugh investigation. Go here to read it. All but the first 26 pages consists of the Exhibits. There is little new here, but reading it all together brought to mind to me the following conclusions:
- There was no substance from the outset to the Christine Blasey Ford allegations, and the Christine Blasey Ford portrayed in the exhibits, particularly the “party girl” with a very active social life in College and Grad School, was not the fragile Christine Blasey Ford who appeared at the hearing.
- The amazing ability of so many people to have minute recollections of events more than three decades in the past, particularly when they would have been at most peripherally involved in events that seemingly would have had no significance at the time.
- The inability of some people to get past perceived slights in high school and college and to treasure grudges from long ago. Kavanaugh’s freshman roommate from college was a prime example of someone itching to sink a hatchet into the scalp of someone he did not like when he was 18 years old more than three decades in the past, and who he had no involvement with since. Grow up people and get a life!
- If the evidence to support Ford’s allegations was virtually non-existent, the evidence to support the remaining allegations was completely non-existent. Calling them obvious lies would be charitable.
- Unless the Senate Democrats on the Committee were complete idiots, and doubtless some of them, looking at you Senator Booker, were and are, they played the role of complete villains willing to smear an innocent man and his family in order to attempt to maintain a death grip on the Supreme Court.
- The smear of Kavanaugh made Joe McCarthy look like an amateur, and if we had a real news media, instead of unpaid press agents for the Democrat party, almost all ordinary Americans, who are not frenzied partisans of the party of the Jackass, would now realize that.
