We guess it hasn’t occurred to the left that they over-reached both in their comments and sentiments and in their ardor for any tale told against Mr. Kavanaugh, believable or otherwise. We have been over this ground for several weeks and the furrows have been plowed pretty deep but, sad to say, there still seem to be plenty of clods to turn up.
We continue to hear the anti-Kavanaugh forces railing about how he is “tainted” because of the “credible” accusations against him. We beg to differ. Why would one be tainted by false accusations? Why should anyone have believed any of the half a dozen so-called “credible” stories that materialized in the last few weeks before the vote was taken on Mr. Kavanaugh’s confirmation? Think about it – a half dozen stories, each wilder than the last – that (and here is the key) NEVER were hinted at in any of Mr. Kavanaugh’s previous clearances and confirmations. Think about it again – did it not give the left pause – even a little pause – that absolutely nothing about any of those tales had ever been told before? Did they not suspect that someone was bluffing or making it up? And did it not give pause that in none of the cases was there any confirmation or contemporary account – no mention at all, in fact, other than claims the accusers made – not at the time of their supposed occurrence – but over thirty years after the fact? And did it not give pause that every single witness that those accusers named denied any knowledge of the incidents? But still they believed, and still they believe.
Back in the days when common sense was a lot more common than it is today, charges such as these would never have been given a hearing by decent, honest people. Even the opponents of Mr. Kavanaugh should have seen through the fabrications and the discrepancies in the accounts and should have said “get thee hence” or something similar.
Those Republicans usually though of as “squishy” all came through – although they all acknowledged some concerns at various stages. Only one Democrat Senator, Joe Manchin, voted for Mr. Kavanaugh. We are quite taken with the fact that no other Democrat Senator publicly questioned any of those lies told about Mr. Kavanaugh. Not one of them, and not one
