Last Minute Smear Tactic

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 17, 2018

         IF ANYTHING DEFINES THE WORD SMEAR, THIS DOES. SENATOR DIANNE FEINSTEIN OF CALIFORNIA CLAIMS TO HAVE A LETTER FROM AN UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN WHO ALLEGES SUPREME COURT NOMINEE BRETT KAVANAUGH ENGAGED IN INAPPROPRIATE SEXUAL CONDUCT WHILE THE TWO OF THEM WERE IN HIGH SCHOOL. 

         FEINSTEIN SAYS SHE IS HONORING THE WOMAN’S ANONYMITY BY NOT RELEASING HER NAME, OR ANY DETAILS ABOUT HER ALLEGATIONS, SO WE DON’T EVEN KNOW IF SHE IS REAL OR MADE-UP. THIS IS WORSE THAN THE ANITA HILL-CLARENCE THOMAS “HIGH TECH LYNCHING,” AS THOMAS CALLED OPPOSITION TO HIS NOMINATION. AT LEAST HILL SHOWED HER FACE AND TESTIFIED BEFORE THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE.

         EVEN RUTH BADER GINSBURG HAS DENOUNCED THE FIASCO AS UNNECESSARILY PARTISAN. THE LEFT HAS GONE MAD, THREATENING SENATOR SUSAN COLLINS OF MAINE AND OTHER SENATORS WHO HAVE NOT ANNOUNCED HOW THEY WILL VOTE ON KAVANAUGH. THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE HAS SCHEDULED A VOTE FOR THURSDAY.

         AS A WALL STREET JOURNAL EDITORIAL SAID: “THE EPISODE SAYS MORE ABOUT THE DESPERATION OF DEMOCRATS THAN IT DOES ABOUT MR. KAVANAUGH, AND THE REAL DISGRACE WOULD BE IF REPUBLICANS DID ANYTHING OTHER THAN MOVE PROMPTLY TO A CONFIRMATION VOTE.” I’M CAL THOMAS.
