I’ve not been able to watch the entire hearing with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh as I was traveling yesterday. I did view the opening statements when I got home. I listened to approximately two-thirds of Dr. Ford’s testimony while I drove to Omaha.
I saw lots of talk about U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) time questioning Kavanaugh, so I wanted to watch it. Wow, where has this Lindsey Graham been? I like this Lindsey Graham.
I was willing to hear Dr. Ford because I think people who make accusations like these deserve to be heard. Listening to her testimony, it’s easy to have sympathy for Dr. Ford. That said, my standard has always been corroboration. We can’t just depend on an accusation that has been unverified.
Judge Kavanaugh also gave a compelling opening statement.
Regardless of whether you believe Dr. Ford or believe Judge Kavanaugh or are not sure what to believe, it is clear that Democrats have played political games with this nomination and it is disgusting.
If they genuinely cared about the truth, this allegation would have been brought to the committee weeks ago and investigated privately avoiding this circus.
Senator Graham has every right to be miffed. Every American should be offended by this process.
