The Big Nothing-Burger

Fox News is reporting that the FBI has forwarded their supplemental report to the Senate Judiciary Committee.  The findings?  Nothing.
A source familiar with the supplemental report told Fox News it shows no evidence corroborating the allegations of sexual assault or misconduct against the nominee. Other specifics from the report were not immediately available, but Fox News is told the review included interviews with nine people, along with a sworn statement from another. This went beyond the original Senate request for interviews with four people, though the FBI did not dive into Kavanaugh's drinking habits in high school, one area of contention, because the Senate did not formally request the information.
Well, okay.  Confirm the guy, already.  I understand that the Senate has already voted for cloture, so the final vote should be almost immediate.

Personally, I think that this whole smear campaign has hurt Democrats more than it helped them.  It certainly hasn't done the MeToo movement any good.  Believe the survivor, but don't go off half-cocked.  Take a minute to review the details and see if the story makes any sense.  Not all "survivors" are believable.

The cruelest smear, though, is the newest one.  Can her be fair after what we've put him though?  Realy?  After smearing him, wrecking his family life, and trotting out wild accusations, you're worried that he might not listen to your arguments?

One thing I learned a ling time ago, as a rookie cop.  Don't piss off the Judge.

Oh, but the probe was "limited", so it was in the bag from the start.

They'll never be happy with any investigation that doesn't show what they want it to show. If it doesn't dig up dirt to have him tossed, well obviously they didn't look hard enough in the right places.

Some parts of Ford's story just seemed, well, cross-threaded.

She went swimming at the County Club. OK, I have never been inside a Country Club, but I assume they fill their pool with water and the water is chlorinated. And then she wears the one-piece swim suit beneath her street clothes. Wet? With chlorinated water? For how many hours?

Then there were her tortured sentences with the convoluted grammar. "Yes" and "No" still work surprisingly well.

I think many people's subconscious have had ample time to work through some of the inconsistencies. She is a "power woman" and she talks and postures like four-year-old asking permission to go to the can before she wets. It is like Diane Keaton's bobble-head when she was playing roles as a "power woman". It simply doesn't compute.

This will just give the Prog/Dems something to consider for the next 30 or 40 years. Maybe they should have considered that before he did the hatchet job on him.
