WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 27: Christine Blasey Ford testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC. A professor at Palo Alto University and a research psychologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Ford has accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party in 1982 when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, taking a deep breath.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) went on a victory lap last night, appearing on Sean Hannity to celebrate the big win over the sexual assault accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. While tens of millions of women worldwide watched and wept hearing Dr. Christine Blasey Ford detail her sexual assault at the hands of a drunken Brett Kavanaugh when she was 15 years old, Lindsey Graham was celebrating with Sean Hannity. Despite Fox News characters like Chris Wallace saying he found Dr. Ford’s testimony to be credible and compelling, telling a story about his own daughters opening up about sexual assault at their school because of Dr. Ford’s bravery, ol’ Lindsey was telling Hannity that Dr. Ford just needed to get over it. Via Talking Points Memo:

“I am now more convinced than ever that he didn’t do it. He is the right guy to be on the court,” Graham told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night. “Ms. Ford has a problem and destroying Judge Kavanaugh’s life won’t fix her problem.”

Later asked what he meant by that, he said Dr. Ford should get some therapy.

 

In fact, after Brett Kavanaugh’s meltdown, before the committee wrapped up ol’ Lindsey led the good ol’ boy club in a big hearty laugh. I was so taken about by their demeanor that I snagged video during one of the breaks in Kavanaugh’s testimony.

Yes, the good ol’ boys about to wrap up another sexual assault case. CSI Fraternity Bros strikes again. This is how men get away with it. And Brett Kavanaugh got away with it for a long, long time. His tears yesterday were more likely the result of real life, actual consequences coming down on him for the first time in his privileged life.

In fact, Kavanaugh’s tears and his rage were the ultimate white male privilege. I mean, ask yourself what type of reaction people would have had if a woman or a person of color sat before that committee and cried, yelled, cut off senators, demeaned the members of the committee and floated right-wing conspiracies? Kavanaugh refused time and time again to call for an FBI investigation to clear his name. It’s quite telling that all of the women involved, the American Bar Association, and millions nationwide are calling for an FBI investigation and Brett Kavanaugh and his Lindsey Graham-led enablers don’t want the FBI anywhere near it. Why is that? Because this is the good ol’ boys club and unfortunately for the rest of us, it is the same as it ever was.

Sigh. Let’s fight back this November and show these good ol’ boys it is no longer business as usual.

  1. Look in mirror, Bunky! You are the real sham… McCain is probably turning over in grave right now. You should be ashamed supporting a ‘judge’ whose best defense is a pocket calendar and blaming the Democrats (in a Trump fashion) for everything else.

  2. I strongly suspect American Media aka “National Inquirer”…provided Trump (Putin tactics) some Kompromat on Graham…..It is Senator Graham that needs some ‘therapy”….to feel it is not shameful to ‘come out of the closet”

    • If all goes well, and the blue wave, excuse me, the blue tsunami washes them ALL out to sea…hopefully, Graham and many if not most of his cohorts will get THEIR own therapy, wearing orange jumpsuits…Brutus inmate#3764 needs a new bitch, pardon my tongue.
