In Politically Assaulting Dr. Ford, Republicans Just Following Their P**sy-Grabbing Leader

Posted by Anthony L. Hall

After today’s hearing, I can think of no better way to explain Republican support for Kavanaugh than this:

Not to mention the bullying way they discarded the female prosecutor they hired to question both Ford and Kavanaugh. Republican leaders hired her in a brazen and shameless attempt to prevent the all-white men on their side of the Senate Judiciary Committee from exposing their misogyny for all the world to see.

But they couldn’t help themselves. Because Republicans ended up kicking her to the curb – unwittingly triggering allusions to the way Kavanaugh and his drinking buddy Mark Judge must have kicked the girls they drugged after ensnaring them in their “Devil’s Triangle.” But it was lost on nobody that Republicans did this as soon as it became clear that Kavanaugh was failing abysmally to defend himself.

I will only add that Kavanaugh betrayed an utter lack of the judicial temperament required of any justice of the Supreme Court.

I mean, it’s one thing for right-wing nuts like Alex Jones and Sean Hannity to dismiss Ford’s allegations as a Clintons-orchestrated, vast left-wing conspiracy against Kavanaugh. They claim Democrats are just using her as a pawn to deliver revenge served cold for his political hackery during the Ken Starr investigation and the George W. Bush administration. But it’s quite another for Kavanaugh himself to spew this unhinged, emotionally overwrought, and politically contrived nonsense.

With all due respect to the growing list of women accusing him of sexual assault, this alone should be disqualifying.

I rest my case.
