    Ironically, Ford might have done better if she didn't name any witnesses, making it a literal "he said/she said". Even with all the holes and contradictions in her narrative, it was her own named witnesses refuting her claims that did the most damage to her credibility.

      But she has made a fortune off her claims and is being lionized as a true heroine of the left so she will do well

      Claiming that she's "done more than prove herself a
      credible witness" and is "guileless"






      1. Which certainly draws into question the veracity of her claim that she was unaware that investigators offered to come to California to meet with her if she was afraid of flying.
      How about a form of pascal wager:

      If ford is guilty and I do not speak poorly of her or accuse her of being a vile creature, what does it cost me? Nothing. In fact I've acted according to the commands of the Scripture to not be full of bile and bitterness, to show the grace and mercy of God in all situatioms.

      If Ford is innocent and speak poorly of her and accuse her of being a vile creature, then what does it cost me? In increasing the suffering of an innocent person I speak judgement on myself. I gave attacked the poor, the sufferring, the innocent and accor ding to Christ, if I do it to the least of these, I have done it to Him.

        Show me what I said was false and I'll happily retract it. As they say the best defense against slander is the truth.

        Btw, did you think about your own statements about Kavanaugh when you proposed this?

          Collins is an unprincipled political hack, like W. Va. Sen. Manchin, she checks first to see where her own best interests lie and thats what she goes with. She's no Heidi Heitkamp!

          Ironically Ford might have done better had the White House not hindered the FBI investigation thus giving cover to unprincipled Senators like S Collins and Joe Manchin. But, the senate republicans, regardless of Dr. Ford, failed to do their job. Whether you believed Dr. Fords allegation to be credible or not, Kavanaugh in his own testimony showed himself to be unfit to serve on the SC. You got what you deserve, hopefully we can save democracy from thick headed clowns like you in whom the plutocratic controlled republican party has invested its future.

                  If true, that's a shame, but you don't see any Republican leadership calling for that kind of conduct, Jim.

                    Clearly, this anti-Christian bigot believes her because it supports his tirade against Evangelicals. EasyPeasy.

                      Would you mind citing exampls from her speech to justify your claims?

                      Please cite evidence that the White House "hindered" the investigation. And I mean actual evidence and not simply reguritating lines from your liberal talking points memo. Like, was there a promising lead they were prevented from following up? Were they not allowed to ask certain questions? Were there witnesses with credible testimony they were told not to talk to? Let's hear some specifics, Jimmy.

                              And Booker and Waters are doing their best to out-crazy him, and you defend them.

                              I think Trump can be a really classless jackass at times. Your opinion of Booker and Waters and their ilk?

                                That is a strange request since the point of the post was to posit the results of how we speak about ford when we simply dont know the truth.

                                And yes, I did think about that. However, as far as I know, I have said nothing derogatory about either one of them. The most I've said is that it is clear Kavanaugh is not being truthful about his college and high school partying. And that it is clear Ford's testimony is not verifiable to any sufficient degree to allow us to act on it relative to Kavanaugh. To act on it would include speaking poorly of him.

                                And my post was to all engaging in Ford bashing, whoever they may be. Yours was just the last in the sequence, and by no means the worst.
