I don't know about the other departments, but we had a board meeting where that issue was discussed.

    You all can spend the next year speculating, lying, guessing or supposing why Kavanaugh got into Yale, but the fact is, he was an editor of the Yale Law Journal and had a superb record as an appellate judge. I have no idea why some are trying to revisit an issue they already failed on before.

    It really is hilarious watching people who seem not to have any experience at these schools trying to argue about Kavanaugh. I suggest they take it up with the admissions office at Yale Law School, assuming the people who made the decisions are even still alive.
    Kavanaugh was a legacy student. If I recall, he graduated from Yale with a BA cum lade in history. So 40% of history students got A's, huh?

    If the FBI had been allowed to do their job and properly investigate Ford's allegations, it's unlikely that we would need to keep revisiting the issue.

    what could they investigate when

    she didn't know when it happened

    she didn't know where it happened

    she didn't know how she got there

    she didn't know how she got home

    she didn't know who she went with

    and everyone she claimed was there, did not support her claims

    I want you to tell me that if you were an FBI agent charged with investigating her claims, what you could have done?

    So the witness and the victim said it didn't happen... and yet some desperate nitwits think they can make a story out of it anyway. They keep proving they can dig the hole deeper.

    I'm not sure what they are thinking could have been done, but I bet that "zoom in and augment" plays a pivotal role in it!

    just look at this thread, Kavanaugh becomes a totem or scape goat for posters who hate elite universities or fraternities or Trump or perhaps are upset they didn't get into Yale etc. 90% of the comments against Kavanaugh have zero relevance. And this "new"allegation is the same sordid innuendo and BS that we got a year ago.

    go back 5 years and If I was sitting in my office and an FBI special agent showed up and said he was asked to investigate claims that were 35 years old, and not a single person, other than the person complaining, supported her claim, and she had no idea where the event took place, how she got there, etc, I'd ask him or her why they even wasted their time of coming down to our office.

When a group of "political hacks" of a similar political affiliation get together, they are sometimes called a "political hack pack."

    Kavanaugh's position on the Starr team and much of his later position as advisor to Bush come under the heading of political hack " intentions are more aligned with victory than personal conviction"

    His belief in advancing women in the legal profession by hiring and mentoring women is something he believes in that serves no political purpose for him. It's a conviction not political hacking.(anyway I hope that's what it is)

    Ginsberg has convictions about women's rights.

    He looks and acts like an alcoholic that can handle drink when professionally engaged.
    Good post overall, but I tend to question the final sentence. Are you perchance referring to his "personality change" when he returned to the hearing from lunch, when he went from fairly self-controlled professional to wild, tantrum-throwing asshole, showing a temperament that nobody (except Trump) should want as a Supreme Court judge? That may or may not indicate a personality change caused by alcohol, but it could also be caused by a phone call from the WH urging Kavanaugh to be more combative, because Trumps likes that style.

    Either way, I wish he hadn't been confirmed and suspect that at some point in the years to come a legitimate impeachment based on hard, irrefutable evidence may be on Kavanaugh's horizon.

    Well, it's not like the Trump administration isn't intimately familiar with hush-money and iron-clad Non-Disclosure Agreements, after all.

    It is tragic that a person's entire professional career is fully disregarded for a smear campaign claiming he was a wild guy in high school and college.

    Why, yes, he was.
