The best response yet to Swetnick (and Ford, and Ramirez, et al)
The latest allegations against Judge Kavanaugh are so ridiculous, so over-the-top, that any person with two working brain cells to rub together can see them for the lies they are. They're nauseating. I think the best point-by-point rebuttal comes from Twitter user Benny Johnson. Follow the string for yourself at that link, if you wish. Here are the screen captures.
Swetnick's claims are, on the face of it, a tissue of lies. It is impossible for any objective observer to take them seriously. There is simply no way any human being in her right mind would have behaved as she did, going back to the scene of known gang rapes ten times - until she herself became one of the victims, according to her. Really? She actually expects us to believe that? And all that time, she never went to the police over the obvious crimes being committed in front of her very eyes?
If it looks like bullshit, and walks like bullshit, and smells like bullshit, and sounds like bullshit, and tastes - well, never mind about the taste... - then, as far as I'm concerned, it is bullshit. I have no hesitation in calling BS on Ms. Swetnick's allegations - and on the uncorroborated, unsupported, unverified (and unverifiable) allegations against Judge Kavanaugh by his other accusers. They add up to a very clear smear campaign, a hit job. If anyone dares to argue that they're credible, I'll immediately know that either that person is coldly, cynically lying, or that he or she needs mental health help, very badly indeed.
What's more, if any politician, of any party, dares to tell me that I have to take such drivel seriously, and believe (or accept as "credible") the person spouting it, that politician can kiss my fundamental jujube. In public. On Capitol Hill.
