The Thrilla And Rumble In Washington

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY SEPTEMBER 20, 2018

         IN BOXING HISTORY, MANY WILL RECALL TWO MUHAMMED ALI FIGHTS HE DUBBED “THE THRILLA IN MANILA” AND “THE RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE.”

         POLITICALLY, THE APPEARANCE NEXT MONDAY BEFORE THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE OF SUPREME COURT NOMINEE BRETT KAVANAUGH AND A WOMAN WHO ACCUSES HIM OF GROPING HER DURING A DRUNKEN HIGH SCHOOL PARTY IN THE 1980S WILL TESTIFY UNDER OATH AS TO THEIR RECOLLECTIONS WILL BE THE EQUIVALENT OF THOSE FIGHTS..

         KAVANAUGH DENIES HE EVER BEHAVED INAPPROPRIATELY WITH ANY WOMAN AND SAYS HE WAS NEVER AT THE PARTY SHE CLAIMS HE WAS. THE WOMAN, CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD, IS A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT AND FEMINIST ACTIVIST WHO PARTICIPATED IN LAST YEAR’S WOMEN’S MARCH ON WASHINGTON, WHICH TURNED INTO AN ANTI-TRUMP RALLY.

         THIS SMELLS OF A SET-UP AND DESPERATION BY THE LEFT TO KEEP KAVANAUGH FROM BEING CONFIRMED. DEMOCRATS ARE HOPING THERE ARE ENOUGH WEAK REPUBLICANS TO DENY HIM A SEAT ON THE COURT AND A RETURN TO CONSTITUTIONAL BOUNDARIES. ALL IT TAKES IS TWO DEFECTORS.

         FORD IS SAID NOT TO REMEMBER CERTAIN DETAILS OF THE ALLEGED ASSAULT, INCLUDING EXACT DATES AND OTHER THINGS. WE’LL SEE IF REPUBLICANS CAN TAKE APART HER TESTIMONY WITHOUT DAMAGING THEMSELVES IN THE DAYS OF THE ME-TOO MOVEMENT. THIS IS WHY GOOD PEOPLE DON’T WANT TO BE IN GOVERNMENT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
