What started out as an 11th hour hail mary attempt by Democrats to get a delaying investigation has now blown up in their faces. Democrats have been looking for anything it takes to delay the Kavanaugh nomination long enough to make it a 2018 election issue. Democrats desperately need something to drive their voters to the polls in key Senate races across the country.
But what Democrats didn’t bargain for is Republicans challenging Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh to testify, and both of them agreeing. When the Democrats turned an anonymous letter about an alleged assault from 35 years ago over to the FBI, they were hoping for an investigation, smear, doubt, and delay. It didn’t matter what the investigation would turn up. Like Russian collusion, all that would matter is that it existed. Instead we are going to have Kavanaugh, who denies even being at the party, versus a liberal Democrat California professor and her infamous DNC supporting lawyer who refuse to even name other people at the party.
Christine Blasey Ford deserves to be heard. So did Juanita Broderick, but Democrats didn’t care about that. So we have the party of Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton putting Ford forward as their new champion to stop Kavanaugh. Perhaps, like Broderick, Ford will be able to find other witnesses who were at the party and willing to come forward to testify that they saw Kavanaugh there and drunk. Perhaps, like Broderick who alleged that she was raped by Bill Clinton, Ford will have friends who can testify to what she looked like after the incident. Perhaps she’ll have something that gives her any credibility.
Then you have the intrigue. Christine Blasey Ford has a reason to hold a grudge against Kavanaugh aside from the fact that she’s a Trump hating liberal. Brett Kavanaugh’s mom, also a judge, ruled against Christine Blasey Ford’s dad in a 2006 foreclosure hearing. Suddenly the metamorphosis of her story from a suppressed memory about a drunken pool party with an attack by four unnamed boys to Kavanaugh drunk at a pool party attacking her with a friend seems even more suspicious.
When she swears an oath and testifies before Congress and they ask her questions like “where was the house” and “what were the names of the other people there” and this thing comes apart, Democrats should face severe consequences. Already, rather than people coming forward and saying they remember that party, we have 65 women who knew Kavanaugh in high school saying he was honorable and would never have done this. You would think someone other than Christine Blasey Ford would have remembered Kavanaugh being at that party by now and would have come forward. For Ford herself, she can’t remember where the house was, whose house it was, and how she got there or how she got home.
What we have is a liberal professor with a shifting story that cannot be proven or disproven from 35 years ago about to take the stand and try to convince us that Kavanaugh was a drunk rapist as a teenager. She has reason to hate Kavanaugh both politically and personally. The whole story was so implausible that Democrats didn’t even use it until the very last minute as a delay/doubt tactic. Now this exhibit at the circus is going to be nationally televised.
In a fair world, Democrats would suffer election losses over this circus. But many Democrats live in the world of Dan Rather, where if they hate someone enough they will know in their hearts any accusation against that person is true. Or perhaps the world of Harry Reid who acknowledged that he will lie to advance the liberal agenda after falsely claiming that Mitt Romney’s tax returns were fraudulent. We’ve seen Spartacus at this circus; Corey Booker trying to turn himself into a martyr and hilariously failing. And of course, the phony Native American Elizabeth Warren trying to fundraise off of the Christine Blasey Ford accusation.
On Monday, the chips are on the table. Ford will face a lot of questions about her parents’ foreclosure, about where this pool party took place, about who else was there, about why she waited 35 years. Then we’ll all realize there is no semen stained dress. There are no tapes. There are no party going witnesses. She wasn’t a campaign volunteer who allowed Kavanaugh into her room cause she just wanted to meet him. She wasn’t a former lover, masseuse, or co-worker in the car. She’s a hostile operative from the opposing party with plenty of reasons to make it all up and nothing so far to lend her credibility.
