Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation

A. Two key witnesses against Kavanaugh. Both drinking/drunk at the time of alleged attack. First witness cited two witnesses, both which said that she is wrong. Second witness, coached by her lawyer to “correctly” remember attack was by Kavanaugh. Both can’t remember other particulars (would be helpful) of the attack. Kavanaugh denies the two attacks, or behavior of that kind by him ever happened. Cast doubt - no evidence, only doubt - and that’s enough? Which one of us could survive in those circumstances?

B. Remind me: Several years ago I saw (TV) an interview of an Obama campaign manager by a mainstream (not Fox News) investigative reporter. Topic was allegation of finance irregularities of Obama’s opponent, Romney. Obama’s campaign manager acknowledged the statements. The reporter said, “Those statements have been proven false.” The manager replied, “Yes, but they worked, didn’t they?” Same thing happening today. Same party making unsubstantiated allegations, against the same party. Same smear-style tactics. Same “unsubstantiated” accusations.

Where is the moderate Democrats who will speak against this travesty? (Oh, there are none.) This situation smells. This is a moral lynching of a good, decent man, all for a political agenda. Sen. Feinstein, yours is shameful, unjustified, unrighteous behavior.
