What If Christine Blasey Ford Is Lying? — The Republicans are treating with kid gloves Christine Blasey Ford who claims that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh groped her at a high school party 36 years ago, something that Kavanaugh unequivocally denies.
“Dr. Ford shouldn’t be threatened or insulted & she deserves to be heard. I expect my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to be respectful & treat this situation with the sensitivity it deserves . . .,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) tweeted.
But what if clinical psychologist Ford is a bad person? What if she is cynically lying for a political agenda, indifferent to any lives she ruins? Why is this possibility apparently being rejected?
We’ll grant that threats and insults are never appropriate or productive but it is foolish to deny that great big elephant sitting there in the room. It is highly possible, probable actually, that she is lying through her teeth to advance a political cause.
Yes, women lie and ruin men’s lives.
In fairness to Grassley, he seems to be seething under the skin. Here is a letter he sent to ranking Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
