If Brett Kavanaugh is Innocent, He Looks Guilty AF

Ahh, the President Trump playbook. Deny. Attack. It’s the same book the Republicans are reading and like always, the GOP is up to their old tricks again.

Who Needs the FBI

With the midterm elections around the corner and the Blue Wave visible from the shoreline, Republicans are in a rush to have a hearing with Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh. It’s already been scheduled for Monday.

Originally, this was scheduled as “phone conference” with short notice to Democrats who opposed this as improper procedure, so instead, a hearing is going forward. The problem? Ford through her attorney wants the FBI to conclude their investigation before testifying. Sounds reasonable enough.

Part of the problem no doubt is that Blasey-Ford makes for a very credible witness and has already passed a lie-detector test. Here’s an idea- have Kavanaugh take one? Let’s roll the dice. If Kavanaugh passes, we give him a seat on the bench. He loses…

#MAGA- Making Attorneys Get Attorneys

Kavanaugh has already lawyered up. Think about that. A Supreme Court Justice nominee had to retain a lawyer. Let that sink in. But, it gets better. You knew it would.

Who is Mark Judge

If this were a movie instead of a reality show, only would a character (more on characters later) that is a Judge would have a friend whose last name is judge. Who is Mark Judge?

Judge was put in the room by Ford. Judge and Kavanaugh went to school together at Georgetown Prep. Judge doesn’t want to get involved, but per Ford, he pushed Kavanaugh off her, allowing her to escape.

Judge’s response: “I have no more information to offer the Committee and I do not wish to speak publicly regarding the incidents described in Dr. Ford’s letter.”

Judge received an “invitation” to the party on Monday before the Senate, but here’s the thing: why not just subpoena him and force him to appear? If the Senate Republicans need help and don’t know how to subpoena someone, may I recommend Robert Mueller. Maybe you have heard of him.

Who the Hell is Bart O’Kavanaugh

I told you I would talk about characters.

Mark Judge wrote a memoir called “Wasted: Tales of a GenX Drunk” and “God and Man at Georgetown Prep.” He called his former alma-mater a “nest of debauchery” but, ready for this, he has a character in his memoir that goes by the name of “Bart O’Kavanaugh.” Apparently, “Bart” would drink until he passed out. Coincidence?

Judge is a writer and filmmaker and wrote once an article that feminism is teaching men that no means no and that yes means yes. Coincidence?

How about that Judge quit drinking and is a devout Christian? Usually when either or both occur, it’s because some occurrence in their life affected them so deeply that they travelled down the road of sobriety and Christianity. Coincidence?

How will this play out? I think there will be too much pressure from the left to push this through. Remember, Republicans want a conservative on the bench, but they have to think of their own election survival and that women have a powerful voice these days, especially with the #MeToo movement.

My educated guess is that Kavanaugh walks away after he’s pressured to do so, and makes up some excuse that this is best for him and his family. Republicans will offer him some cushy job with a large law firm that will pay him seven figures and President Trump and the Republicans will try to shove another nominee down our throats with limited time once again.
