There’s so much to say.
First of all, the Repug men on the Judiciary Committee and other Repugs like the oozing McConnell and Collins know g**damn well that they’re all lying. The DARVO noise is a bludgeon to use anger to back everyone off. The Repug goal was to ram through process and doubt, in unquestioned lockstep in order to put their boy onto the Court. IMO, they would have driven a juggernaut to ram thru any of the potential nominees because that kind of partisan corruption is what the sociopathic McConnell is all about.
Plus, like true pod people and cultists, the Repugs have their heads so far up Dump’s ass, they’ve lost every bit of whatever sense of themselves they had. Yes, many have been closet fascists or Nazis for years, and now they’ve emerged. Thank you, Donnie. The rest have no spine and no more conscience. Thank their moms and dads for the foundations lain in early childhood.
Yes, Kavanaugh was playing DARVO, something all partners of cheaters know very well. Make even the thinnest question or accusation that he’s cheating and what do the majority react like? They explode, gaslight, reverse blame, and back the accuser off.
But that’s not all Kavanaugh did. In his rush to fulfill deals made and give his drunk ego the highest stroke possible, he also showed himself to be like a classic abuser. How many people caught that on that Thursday, Sept 27? Check out the Domestic Violence Cycle. Liken the Committee, especially the Repugs, to a somewhat docile partner. 1-Kavanaugh was sweetness and light, albeit braggadocio and coy subterfuge in round one. 2-Then he left the JC and tension built up in him for several reasons for days. 3- After Ford’s testimony on Thursday, he came into the hearing exploding with rage and abuse and paranoid lies. 4-Spent, he retreated and contrition set in. 5-He tried to make nice and semi-apologized and made excuses via the WSJ article. 6-He made promises not to do that again. 7-He then entered the honeymoon phase, sweetness and light. I can’t say WHAT his next explosion will be, but I’m betting it happens. Maybe his wife or parents should have been questioned by those so-called FBI investigators operating at the behest of the so-called president. (I know…wives don’t have to say anything against their husbands.)
This so-called judge is dangerous for lots of reasons. His partisan partiality and presidential immunity crap are just two facets of his danger.
