I know I said I didn’t want to talk about this anymore, but it really annoys me when Democrats lie to me. Yes, it happens every single day, but this one is particularly egregious.
As I said yesterday, I believe Christine Blasey Ford believes what she’s saying. I also know that belief isn’t evidence. We have no way to determine whether her account of decades-old events is what actually happened, because she has provided nothing at all that could prove it. She’s not sure when this alleged assault occurred. She’s not sure where it occurred. Nobody else can corroborate her story. Yet I’m supposed to take the word of a woman I don’t know — whose name I didn’t know until two weeks ago, whose voice I didn’t hear until yesterday — as gospel.
Is she lying? I don’t know. Is she delusional? I don’t know. Is it a case of mistaken identity, based on a decades-old “recovered memory”? I don’t know. There’s no way to determine it one way or the other. There’s nothing to work with. There are no facts. All she’s got is her conviction. She’s entitled to it, but that’s not enough.
Belief isn’t proof. I thought this country learned that lesson a few hundred years ago in Salem. A lot of those people thought they were doing the right thing too.
Later on yesterday, Kavanaugh testified. He was upset. He was angry and emotional. He lashed out at the people who have smeared him as a rapist. And now they’re condemning him for it.
Here’s a representative example, from Obama’s “ethics czar”:
Folks, we are all getting a taste of the aggression that emerged when Kavanaugh got drunk, and it ain’t pretty. His demeanor is not rebutting the allegations–if anything, it is validating them. pic.twitter.com/rgkVc0qTDq

Brand this man a rapist. Destroy his good name. Put his family through hell. And then, when it makes him angry and upset, cite it as further proof that you’re right about him. Put him through the wringer, and then mock him when he’s wrung out.
Go Team Blue!
I’m supposed to accept Ford’s word, based on nothing but her display of emotions. And I’m not supposed to accept Kavanaugh’s word, because he got emotional. That’s a neat trick, isn’t it? “Heads I win, tails you lose.”
Maybe you’re convinced that Brett Kavanaugh is the awful person you need him to be in order to get the result you want, and his emotional reaction just goes to prove it. If so, please just ask yourself this: If you were falsely accused of a crime in front of the whole world, with no evidence except an accusation, what would your demeanor be right now? Be honest with yourself, forget the goal you’re working toward, and try to put yourself in his shoes.
Either Brett Kavanaugh is the greatest actor on the planet, or he’s genuinely devastated and furious about what the Democrats are doing to him. If you cheer it on, let alone accept it, then you must not think it can ever happen to you.
After all, you’re a good person, right? If you ever found yourself standing in the way of the Democrats’ goals, they would never do this to you, would they? Nobody would ever make all sorts of wild, baseless claims about you. No, no, no. You’re too important to the world.
And if your response is, “Aww, that poor entitled white man,” then you really are as dumb as your friends and family tell each other when you leave the room.
If they can do this to Brett Kavanaugh, they can do it to anybody. And if the Republicans reward these remorseless charlatans for this orchestrated smear campaign by capitulating to the whims of the Democrats, the voters are going to remember.
You think Kavanaugh is angry? Just wait until November 6.
