I’m Not Making This Up, You Know


One of the points made in the defense of Brett Kavanaugh has been the fact that people who engage in the sort of conduct alleged against him are usually serial offenders, and no other women had stepped forward. Indeed, every other woman who knew Kavanaugh and who did step forward spoken in his favor, until the last minute. The New Yorker has now published a claim that Brett Kavauagh exposed himself to a girl while he was a student at Yale. This second story was also being worked by several of the usual suspects in the Main Stream Media, and none of them, including The New Yorker, have been able to been able to find a witness to confirm the story. In fact, the New York Times has reported that none the potential witnesses they have interviewed could corroborate the story. This tale appears to be even flimsier than the Ford accusation, but that has not prevented Senator Feinstein from asking that the Ford/Kavanaugh hearing finally scheduled for Thursday be postponed until this new claim can be investigated by the FBI.

And Michael Avenatti has come out from under his rock, saying he represents a woman with “credible information about Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.”

It’s unfortunate, it’s hysterical, it’s panic stricken, but Democrats are proceeding as I have foreseen.

UPDATE—My podcasting partner Stacy McCain comments here.

  1. Much like they didn’t like it when the Harry Reid rules were used against them, they are going to HATE it when the Feinstein rules start being used against them. *

    * This, of course, depends on whether they just ignore a problem. See Ellison, Keith.

    • I don’t take the tit-for-tat argument seriously. After what was done to Judge Bork, and Clarence Thomas, the Republicans had a chance to go tit-for-tat concerning Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but, instead, almost to the man, voted to confirm her. As far as I am concerned, the you’ll-regret-this-someday argument is an idle threat.

      • I’m not saying it would be orchestrated by the GOP, I was thinking more of someone coming out of the woodwork at the 11th hour like Ford and Ramirez. Lots of people want their 15 minutes.

        • You mean people like Paula Jones, Kathleen Wiley, and Juanita Broadrick? See how much traction those accusations had in the media? Was Paula Jones given a fair hearing? No! She sued Bill Clinton and won. The media characterized his loss in court as a brilliant strategic tactic!

          Nor, am I rehashing the 1990’s. These ladies tried to raise Hillary Clinton’s campaign of vilification against them during the 2016 campaign and were ignored once again.

          • Did I mention how James Carville was allowed to say, “See what happens when you drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park?”
