    Aren’t we one more retiree/death from the next candidate’s internet search history being part of the evidence? Then things will get real interesting.

    Seriously, Mrs Babs how could you spend all of 2017 just googling pictures of this ....what’s his name...mayfield baker person?

    Except she didn't say just that she wasn't at the party, she said she DID NOT KNOW KAVANAUGH.

    I find it amazing that you can't accept that it is possible that Ford is just wronng or flatly lying.

    He is being too abrasive and reactionary in his responses. You would expect a SCOTUS nominee to have more composure.

    Kavanaugh is fiery. It might backfire on him, but it is interesting.

    I agree with him, the yearbook thing is a joke.

    She has nothing to gain - therefore she is telling the truth. The rest is just the gymnastics to come back to the desired conclusion.

    Why? Are SCOTUS members supposed to be devoid of emotion? Especially regarding personal matters such as this?

    I am not sure it will backfire. Truthfully, what I find more appealing is this is not about the SCOTUS nom. anymore but about his reputation and the fiery/reactionary responses reflect that he does not care if he is nominated or not. He is going to right the wrong they have done to his reputation for political gain..

    To me, I think it resonates publicly, but for the senators, maybe not, but I do not fault him for staying pissed and fiery.

    The questions was a set up. there was no good answer for Kavanaugh.

    Yes, it is me: Then his friend describes him puking and passing out as a drunk

    I don't know, ask Judge: We would like to ask him but those damn republicans won't make him show up

    Yes it was me but I didn't do that: So once again everyone else is wrong and you're right?

    Good grief, of course you can have emotion. But he is borderline unhinged on some of those responses.

    You haven't read my posts, bro. I believe she was abused. It's a plausible theory that it's just a case of mistaken identity. Especially because it was so long ago, she could be conflating a couple of memories.
    But yes, for her to be flat out lying, intentionally, I find that hard to believe. And after Kavanaugh testified, I am having a hard time believing he is flat out lying. A plausible theory is that he did it, and simply cannot recall.

    But the optics of him getting forceful with a demure and oppressed Diane Feinstein....oh the horror!

    He is a misogynist and is lying because he has something to gain from being dishonest.

    ALthough that would mean he is lying. No matter what, someone is lying here.

    No, if he sincerely doesn't remember he isn't lying. He was inebriated.

    Maybe I have never been drunk enough, but I don't buy he would forget that. One of them is lying - it is what it is.

    Disagree. He is every bit as likely to mis-remember the event as she is. Probably much more likely.

    They are leaning hard on a highschool yearbook? Seriously? And trying to decode terms and draw conclusions from them?

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    No, I do think it is more likely that one of them is lying. This sounds silly, but my soul really is having a hard time watching both of them and realizing someone is lying. It's just sad.

    These yearbook questions are dumb, and should be easy for Kavanaugh to knock down. But man he's doing his worst.
