After Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning, President Trump’s supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh began his testimony which is still in progress.  Kavanaugh’s shocking opening statement, which went on for nearly an hour, could be summarized as I’m a good guy, I like beer, and the Democrats are conspiring to ruin my life.  It was shocking because his speech was extremely emotional, embarrassingly rambling, and filled with rage.  I never would’ve expected a nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court to lose control of himself so dramatically.  It appeared to me that Kavanaugh was in serious self-denial about the situation he now finds himself in and that it is challenging his perception of self-entitlement.  It also appeared to me that he might be suffering from the psychological effects of alcoholism.  Regardless of the numerous sexual misconduct allegations made against him, Kavanaugh’s testimony so far makes him unsuited for such a high office in my opinion.

In contrast, Ford’s testimony was restrained, compelling, and delivered quite credibly.  Reliving the trauma of the alleged incident obviously made her uneasy, but she was able to maintain her composure where Kavanaugh was not.

I’ve never seen anything even remotely like this before.  Stay tuned.

  1. Thanks for the report. I’ve not watched as I am so enraged by all this it’s hurting my health. I check on it later in little bits, and I knew you’d cover it. Thanks. This whole thing is disgusting. Any semblance of decent morality has been completely shredded from the republicans and their chosen servants. They are sickening human beings.

  2. Clarence Thomas dpent his time screaming angrily that he was being lynched. Same tactics K is using. K is a lot more emotional sand extreme than Thomas.

    K is very afraid of an FBI investigation of the matter and dies not want Mark Judge or others to be investigated. Most guilty looking person I have seen and worst denial since Thomas.

    He does not have the temperament to be a judge on any level. Brain has been fried by too much beer.

  3. Hi Robert,
    I have had my grandchildren here all day but my daughter watched the proceedings from first thing this a.m. She’s been sending me updates on FB. I was able to watch Dr. Ford’s testimony but haven’t seen anything else. When Kavanaugh began his testimony, I started getting messages every few minutes. She said almost everything you said and one of the first things she said was, “There’s no way this guy’s got the temperament to be on the Supreme Court!” That was in the first few minutes. According to her, things went downhill from there.
    We’ll see how the Republican Party handles their man.

  4. Just listened to Kavanaugh’s statements regarding Dr. Ford’s allegations. He did not seem honest. He was probably trying to sound aggrieved, but it came across as an act. Moreover, he dodged several crucial questions. General impression: He could be guilty of the charges. After hearing him speak, I would not trust him to be a nonpartisan jurist. An FBI investigation will probably find proof of sex offenses, offenses he has denied under oath.
