Watching Judge Kavanaugh’s statement before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I think he is killing it. He demonstrates indignation and appropriate emotion, every bit as much as Ford. He has rightly focused his remarks on the game against him played by the Democrats. Here he has nailed it. He called them out in every respect. He omitted only their names, but we know who they are. The truth shall set us free.
Judge Kavanaugh took the opportunity of his statement to defend his life. It took him 35 years to build his reputation. The Democrats have destroyed it. They have taken away a good share of his life. He responded entirely appropriately while proclaiming his innocence of the charge and making out the wrong done to him by the Democrats. He drew on his 1982 calendar to go a long way to refute the allegation raised against him by Christine Blasey Ford. He addressed facts and cited corroborative testimony.
UPDATE: As of the break in the questions and answers, I think Judge Kavanaugh’s judgment is definitive. This is a “national disgrace,” although Lindsey Graham’s “unethical sham” is a close runner up and also has the additional advantage of being true.
CONCLUSION: The Democrats flailed away to almost no avail, as in Sheldon Whitehouse’s examination of Judge Kavanaugh regarding his high school yearbook. We have all heard about the White House farce. Sheldon gave us the Whitehouse farce. Based on the evidence before the committee, I would hold that Judge Kavanaugh proved the negative beyond a reasonable doubt or somewhere close to it.
JOHN adds: I will have more to say later on, but for now: this was Lindsey Graham’s finest hour.
