Kavanaugh vs Ford

2018-09-28 22:11:49.037879+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

Shadow forwarded along a video, which I've only had a chance to watch a small bit of, proposing that in all of the rush to pillory Kavanaugh for an alleged sexual assault, we're missing all of the other good reasons to keep him from any further participation in the justice system, starting with his various horrendous stances on mass surveillance and 4th Amendment issues.

I listened to a good bit of the testimony of both Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford yesterday, and aside from Kavanaugh sounding an awful lot like he'd had a few at lunch to steady his nerves, and like he's an angry drunk, I found his inability to answer a question frustrating.

So did Vox, and they made a chart: Every time Ford and Kavanaugh dodged a question, in one chart.

As more and more information comes out supporting Ford's memory, including, now, apparently Kavanaugh's released calendars from that era, I hope he gets nailed down on specifics.
