Oh my goodness no.

I was just going to add my voice to the rest of the #metoo crowd praising her for her incredible "bravery" for surviving an "attack" that left her unable to fly in airplanes and required remodeling her house 30 years later by continuing to party immediately afterwards as if nothing ever happened.

The do realize the GOP is accuse their nominees of being pedos to pander to their own fringe when the turnabout comes?

I don't think they've thought about the long game on this.

No one has been thinking of long game
Democracy incentivises short-term thinking. Anything that happens after the next election is always a lower priority that winning the next election. That's why hard choices don't get made (or rarely do), like cutting spending or raising taxes. If you can cut taxes, raise spending and pay for it all by borrowing more money from future generations, who probably aren't going to vote in the next election or don't realize that they're the ones being screwed over by current deficit spending, why not do it?

You gotta fight for that right.

But as to your point, according to her own story, as told to the Washington Post, she didn't actually realize how traumatic it was until she began therapy 30 years later.

Could "therapy" (psychoanalysis or whatever) actually make some things worse or seem worse? If you had mostly forgotten about something in your life or hadn't thought about it much for a long time, doesn't that mean you are over it? And if a therapist makes you dig it back up and reevaluate it, it might begin to take on more importance than it had before you started therapy. Lots of people have a fear of flying that has nothing to do with a sexual assault. It's scary enough all by itself. I doubt those two things are related.

Worse! She survived an attack that left her unable to fly in airplanes WHILE SHE FLIED IN AIRPLANES!!1!!!1!!

Why do you deny her tragedy and support rapists, shuize?

If the event never happened, and it is implanted by the therapist, certainly and definitely. See the whole fiasco of "recovered memories."
If you had mostly forgotten about something in your life or hadn't thought about it much for a long time, doesn't that mean you are over it?
You do not forget events such as the one claimed.
Lots of people have a fear of flying that has nothing to do with a sexual assault.
Such, unlike Ford, avoid flying planes.
I doubt those two things are related.
They are the same: a crock of shit.

Again, the most charitable conclusion is that it is shit implanted by her therapist then encouraged by the Democrats.

Well I think we can say that this hearing changed absolutely nobody's mind (not that it should have, we already knew what each of them was going to say.)

It's all tribal. Tell me how a person voted in the last election and I'll tell you who they thought was more credible. Democrats all believe her, and Republicans all believe him. There are no provable objective facts, just preformed opinions for guidance.

It fits with the fact that she has an implanted memory. I doubt anything happened to her for reasons that I have described. Actual victims do not "block" memory. That is a "Hollywood" belief like Hollywood amnesia. Compare the victims of Bill Cosby. They remember.

Because the memory is not real it is like a lie: the details are not certain since she has to basically make them up. The most charitable interpretation is that she had it implanted in a "recovered memory" crap session. In that case she was prompted to make up a story. Since the story is not based on fact the memory proves even more uncertain and malleable than actual memory. As such, it cannot sustain scrutiny, and I suspect she and her lawyer know this.
Yes, the false memory explanation would fit. But it's still generous given her obviously politically motivated "fear of flying" lie. I'm wondering if that was a sworn statement?

Corker says he'll vote to confirm. Anyone know the vote breakdown now?

I watched a YouTube clip of Graham. That was great.

Methinks you point a finger Grasshopper.

There are a number of "provable objective facts" which include, but are not limited to:
  • 1. Ford lied about being unable to fly in planes.
    2. Ford made no such accusations until "recovered" by a therapist decades later.
    3. Her standard of certainty changed recently.
    4. The witnesses that she claimed corroborated her accusation all contradict her.
    5. Unlike victims of an actual event, she cannot remember any "provable objective" details save those which have been contradicted by "provable objective facts."
The fear of blaming a potential victim forces the dancing about her crock of shit.

As I have stated, she may not have created this crock of shit, any more than the hundreds of false "Satanic daycare victims" made up their stories: they were planted and nurtured by Those with an Agenda and Those Who Have No Idea How the Mind Actually Works.

At first I thought that Ford was attacked and misremembered. But given the way this has played out I wonder. I don't mind politics but what the democrats did here was inexcusable. They Fucked over two innocent people to advance their agenda and they seem to be doubling down.

1980s reminiscence :oldman:

Back when I lived in Wappingers Falls NY (locally known as Wop Falls -- catching some of the overflow from NYC), I initially believed Tawana Brawley, sort of. I speculated it was guards from Greenhaven who abused her and not the cops. She just thought they were cops because they said so and flashed some kind of badge. I did not believe they were really KKK of course, but they might have said so to mess with her.

Did not fully embrace the total-made-up-shit theory until Sharpton showed up.

Cory Booker confessed to sexual assault in high school.

He has met the Democratic requirements for Senator and President as established by Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton.

Richard Blumenthal stolen valor lies about his military record.

And Flake goes wobbly ...

Announce support and then demand an investigation? What a dick move.

By agreeing to a "limited" investigation he opens the door for the Democrats to keep crying "The investigation was rigged!" or "Just a bit more time!"

Cave once and they will keep demanding you cave again.

And it will never be enough.

Probably it is a matter of how the other swing Republicans feel.

Flake is aptly named, but he is a voting senator, so there you go.
