The Kavanaugh Affair, Continued… by The Elephant's Child

From Victor Davis Hanson:

Just when observers had concluded the desperate progressive opposition to Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court could not stoop much lower, it most certainly did.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), in the news recently for somehow unknowingly employing a Chinese spy as her gofer and chauffeur for 20 years, passed on information to federal investigators that weeks ago had come to her attention from an unnamed, unidentified, and anonymous female who claimed she was a high school acquaintance of Kavanaugh’s. Apparently, we were to believe that the once-anonymous informant had harbored a long-simmering, but heretofore never-voiced complaint of sexual assault against Kavanaugh, which coincidentally reached a peak of unsustainable resentment at the time of his nomination to the highest court in the land.

After days of gossip and innuendo to the effect that the likely next Supreme Court Justice might just be some sort of pervert, Anonymous finally came forward and identified herself as a victim of a then 17-year-old inebriated Brett Kavanaugh who (she says) sexually manhandled her in 1982 when she was 15. More specifically, the woman now alleges that Kavanaugh and another student at a high-school party entered a room inebriated, pinned her to a bed, and then groped her while she was clothed. Young Kavanaugh then allegedly attempted to take her clothes off her while he and his classmate, Mark Judge, both laughed “maniacally.” She adds that she had sought “medical treatment” for her unspecified injuries.

Here’s Paul Mirengoff ( a lawyer) at Powerline: “Another Kavanaugh Accuser Comes after Dem Lawyer Persuades Her She’s A Victim

Scott Johnson (also a lawyer) at Powerline adds:

Nevertheless, the Democrats may have achieved liftoff. According to FOX News, creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti has apparently let it be known #HeToo has a client waiting in the wings.

And here’s Steven Hayward, also at Powerline:  “I Told You So”

Steven Hayward adds his “Week in Pictures” which is all the jokes and cartoons of the week, this week mostly about the Kavanaugh affair. As he says, “there isn’t a black hole large enough to swallow up the liberal hypocrisy over this whole business.”

They started this thing off with a lengthy conversation about how if Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court , he would immediately ban legal abortions. Women everywhere had to rise up and get their congresspeople to dump Kavanaugh. Now, that Ms. Christine Blaney Ford has been identified as the accuser, and admits that her recollection is rather fuzzy at best, and needs protection from death threats (?) but her biggest accusation seems to be “groping” — the helpful media keeps referring to it as “rape” which nobody’s accused anybody about.

I seem to remember some Democrat, long ago, saying something about “you drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer camp…”
