Sacrificed on the Altar of Political Correctness

I want to spend the rest of this podcast talking about politics; in particular, what’s going on with Brett Kavanaugh and his fading chances of sitting on the Supreme Court.  It appears that he may be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. I also blame the Republicans for allowing this to happen – to have fallen into this trap; not just with Kavanaugh.

No Sense of Proportion

This has been slowly building, the camel’s nose under the tent, and once the Democrats play this card – and this is not the racist card this is the rape card, the violence against women card. there’s a zero tolerance now.  You can’t even create the appearance that one is somehow tolerant of any kind of sexual abuse against women. There is no sense of proportion.

Allegation About a 35-Year Old Event

There was an allegation that became more significant 2 days ago when a previously unnamed woman who claimed that BrettKavanaugh assaulted her when they were in high school.  Now, of course, Kavanaugh is 53 years old now, so this is over 35 years ago.

There Was a Lot of Alcohol at This Party

Kavanaugh denied the initial allegation. Initially, the identity of the woman was unknown, as was the nature of the “sexual assault”.  So Kavanaugh denied it. Now we actually have a name: Christine Blasey Ford, 51, a professor of Psychology, a registered Democrat. She has come forward now with the details of the encounter and the lack of details, because much of it she does not recall. After all, it happened 35 years ago, and according to the accuser, there was a lot of alcohol at this party.  She says that Kavanaugh was drunk, so she was probably drunk herself. I don’t know if she has admitted to being drunk – there was alcohol at the party and the boys were drinking it.  It stands to reason that she probably had some alcohol herself.
