Even Fox News Commenters Are Admitting That Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's Testimony Is "Extremely Credible"

Comments

Rapeublicans demand that Commander KKKavanaugh must be seated on the Supreme Court, so that he can spend the next 40 years sticking it to us sluts, homos, blacks, and Messicans ‘cause the Good ChrISIStian Bitches have proclaimed that we all must be put back in our place.

And if he doesn’t get to make our lives a miserable hell, it will RUIN HIS LIFE.

Miss Lindsey just proclaimed that Aunt Rachel proved that Dr. Ford is a lying slut who was asking for it, so case closed.

Mark Judge says you have to drink every time Kavanaugh says, “I never sexually assaulted anyone.”

@4 and these experiences all have the stench (and root cause) of Catholic-teaching based patriarchy, hegemony, sex-shaming and hypocritical practice. i'm surprised that aspect hasnt been explored more -it's a bit academic, and not as time-critical as the testimony. maybe in retrospective it will be.

covering up child rape by priests and abuse and slut-shamingof young girls by 'good young men' are two sides of the same coin.

i was raised catholic, went to catholic schools for many years, and took a few years of de-programming to be able to shed those prejudices. and this doesnt mean there are some good people doing good things in the name of the church, but this aspect of the legacy of religious programming in the US is a reckoning that has been long overdue.

“The record of my life, from my days in grade school through the present day, shows that I have always promoted the equality and dignity of women.”

I hope someone asks him if the phrase “Renate Alumnius” or belonging to an organization colloquially known as “Tits and Clits” promotes the “dignity of women.”

8

I also hope someone asks why this is germane:

“But I was not perfect in those days, just as I am not perfect today.”

If he is so innocent, why is he half-apologizing for...something?

Not that it matters - he’ll still get confirmed, for all the reasons @1 listed.

If FOX shitnews has the temerity to call Dr. Ford's testimony 'Extremely Credible," you know President Pussy Grabber's gonna hafta thoss in the towel.

Good. Most likely they'll try for a recess Appointment.

Or whateverthefuck it takes, to sneak another far far far "right" Corporatist/misognyst Activist on to our Highest Court -- for Life.

And "Democracy" be Damned.

My first reaction hearing her testimony was she's certainly not flashy, she's not going to deliver any sick burns. Which became, she's being so careful not to overstate. And this person would make the world's worst liar.

And so scared. Understandably. Who would sign up to be this terrified and terrorized to put forth a lie, anyway? How much would I have to pay you if you expected to have to lie to the FBI and fool their investigation?

11

Has Kavanaugh been asked whether he drank in high school at all, and whether he ever drank so he can't fully remember the night before? Because there's plenty of people who say he got drunk. How can he really say more than that he doesn't recall sexually assaulting anybody?

12

he is coming off as that angry guy

13

It's stunning that logic dictates that either Kavanaugh or Ford is lying and putting the country unnecessarily through this wringer. But its not a court of law, but a job interview and such @10 becomes a default position.

15

He's crying and sniveling and snorting and drinking water and snorting - it's awful - and suspiciously overacting.

16

@14: Logic is only what we know, not what we suppose.

17

@15 and can he stop with the bragging about the Jesuit/Catholic school elitism spots talk too? being a over-charged, sexually repressed, sports jock with a drinking problem is not the best alibi. just saying.

and maybe he's snivelling becuase it was his friend who was the most violent in that Ford event, and he didnt have the guts to stand up to him (think billy bush on the bus) and has felt incredibly guilty all these years? and he's tried to make up for it?

18

@17: What's possible isn't always probable.

20

@19 of course not, but being Catholic is hardly a defense of NOT committing a crime. that was my point. the way he throws it around is disturbing and a bit elitist to me. as a catholic.

@18 that's why it would be handy to see more of the Mr Judge fellow. that's would be quite useful i think.

21

He's made inaccurate and misleading statements about his drinking in high school, but I can't find he's been asked specifically whether he has passed out drunk. Not everybody who passes out has cloudy or missing memories, but it's not uncommon there.

His heavy drinking buddy wrote a heavy drinking book in which "Bart O’Kavanaugh" passed out drunk.

Oopsie:

K: "And the drinking age was 18, and yes, the seniors were legal and had beer there."

One big problem here is that Kavanaugh turned 18 in February 1983 and Maryland raised its drinking age to 21 back in July 1982.

22

Remember when it took for ever to convince people that catholic pedophile priests raped tens of thousands of boys? That n accusation against a priest is almost always immediately believed and investigated. Its such an accepted fact that it's a punchline.

But somehow it's STILL almost impossible to get men to believe women. You have to go through bullshit like this.

@7
Absolutely.
The least of his faults is that he is a pompous ass. Oh and why did his friend Judge run away?
Why did Judge look sick and turn pale when he saw Ford some weeks later? There are many other questions that need answering by Kavanaugh who can’t ever handle the word NO.

Testifying under oath before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Christine Blasey Ford identified herself as a ‘psychologist,’ but records indict this is a false statement under California law. Someone at Stanford University also appears to have caught the blunder and edited Ford’s faculty page.Is she credibLe? I don't think so.
