Circus Maximus

When you turn a Supreme Court confirmation into a national political campaign don’t be surprised when a circus breaks out.

A few random thoughts from yesterday’s performance:

Poor, poor Christine Blasey, I believe that something happened to her sometime, somewhere; perhaps that explains why she seems such a seriously disturbed woman for her age. But those bleary glasses can’t possibly help her see the truth any better. I don’t think she should be teaching college at all let alone psychology. Sheesh.

fordFog of whores?

And everyone seemed surprised that a righteous man unjustly accused of despicable acts could get righteously angry. What did they expect?

Cry havoc and let slip the dog of whores! 

And speaking of whores, Richard Blumenthal, possibly the only Senator ever guilty of stolen valor – because he confused being in Vietnam during the Vietnam War with NOT being in Vietnam during the Vietnam War – was dispatched to quiz Judge Kavanaugh on the meaning of the term “falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus”  - "false in one thing, false in all things." Self-awareness is not a prerequisite for serving in the Senate.

Next, Spartacus, the man who admitted in a column in his college newspaper that he sexually groped (i.e. sexually assaulted) a 15 year old girl in high school. He was getting in Judge Kavanaugh’s face about the alleged, unsubstantiated sexual assault of a 15 year old girl. See note on self-awareness above.

Then there is Diane Feinstein: she wrapped up by wagging her tongue about poor Christine being exposed, harangued by the media, threatened, dragged into the hearings against her will…when it was her office that released Christine’s letter that she requested remain confidential.

Only in America, my friends, only in America. We do circuses right.
