One thing I’m noticing that a lot of people, especially on the right, are forgetting about the Kavanaugh hearings was that it wasn’t just that Blasey Ford seemed credible. It’s very much that Kavanaugh was not credible at all.
Kavanaugh told multiple, obvious lies under oath — about his drinking in his youth, about jokes in his yearbook, about his attitude towards women. It was a conflict between an obvious liar and someone who we had no evidence was lying.
I see some obsessed folks want to make this about Biden. It's really not. It's just correcting some folks rewriting the history of Kavanaugh. As I have cautioned on Biden, this is simply a situation that is complicated and hard to parse and hopefully more info will come out.
