The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"So it looks like Brett Kavanaugh's accuser has been identified and, guess what, she's a progressive activist college professor who apparently scrubbed her entire social media presence before her name was made public. She sends her letter to Senator Diane Feinstein who sits on it for weeks and then, after the confirmation hearings are over, gives it to the FBI for investigation, only with the professor's name redacted. Like, what are they supposed to do with it? So the FBI says this is not a matter for them to investigate (strange as it may seem, drunken high school groping is not a federal crime) and gives the letter to the White House. And now it's being reported that the professor will be a no-show at a proposed hearing next Monday and DiFi says she can't verify that she has said is truthful. This is all so stinky that even the extremely liberal San Francisco Chronicle newspaper editorialized against it. Grassley needs to shut down this shit show before it gets out of hand. Hell, it's *already* out of hand. There's no doubt in my mind that Kavanaugh is going to get confirmed. Even if Jeff Flake goes into a fetal position, they've still got 50 once Pence parachutes in. The problem is, the Democrats never seem to suffer any consequences when they toss in these stink bombs. Which they will do the next time and the next and the GOP needs to figure out how to make them pay for it. And last, some Eeyore conservatives are already complaining that these bogus allegations of sexual misconduct will permanently taint Kavanaugh's SCOTUS career. Really? I don't think so. Tomorrow will bring another day, the progs will gin up a new outrage, and everybody will forget this national freak-out, and Kavanaugh will go to work deciding cases according to sound constitutional law. And nobody will care. Just ask Clarence Thomas."
