As the Wheels Come off Christine Ford's Story the Media Starts Focusing on Really Important Stuff

Yesterday, the Washington Post ran a story on Brett Kavanaugh that contained this striking revelation:

Charles Ludington, a former varsity basketball player and friend of Kavanaugh’s at Yale, told The Washington Post on Sunday that he plans to deliver a statement to the FBI field office in Raleigh on Monday detailing violent drunken behavior by Kavanaugh in college.

Ludington, an associate professor at North Carolina State University, provided a copy of the statement to The Post.

In it, Ludington says in one instance, Kavanaugh initiated a fight that led to the arrest of a mutual friend: “When Brett got drunk, he was often belligerent and aggressive. On one of the last occasions I purposely socialized with Brett, I witnessed him respond to a semi-hostile remark, not by defusing the situation, but by throwing his beer in the man’s face and starting a fight that ended with one of our mutual friends in jail.”


The lesson for everyone, particularly young men, is look around your circle of friends, identify those who will inevitably become leftwing p***ies (quick checklist: lumberjack shirt? skinny jeans, beard? 13-inch neck?) and shun them now because they will turn on you later in life if it will bring them adulation for the correct people.

Beyond that, I really don’t care. I’ve known a lot of belligerent drunks. I know guys who started a fight over a guy wearing a cavalry stetson into a bar. I know guys who cut a jacket off a guy with a k-bar, hung in in the acoustic tiles in a bar and dared him to touch it. Hell, I’ve been a belligerent drunk. The organizing principle here is that all of us grew up, moved on, and stopped doing the Hollywood drinking that young men used to do before society started paying attention to the SJW harpies who desperately want to run things.

If Kavanaugh started a fight over an insult or hostile remark, I could give a flying f***. It doesn’t mean anything.

What this story shows is how completely the wheels have come off the whole Christine Ford story.

The memo by Rachel Mitchell, the experienced sex crimes prosecutor assisting the Senate Judiciary Committee is damning.


If you don’t want to read it, these are some of the high points of her testimony.


Note: some people in the comments apparently refused to read the entire article and focused on this one tweet. I don’t endorse the Safeway date and I don’t believe it to be correct but if it amuses you to focus on this one point and ignore everything else, please feel free to do so.


The entire focus of the left now is on investigating underage drinking and looking for the timecards to show when Mark Judge worked at a Safeway. The drumbeat is on “perjury,” as though Kavanaugh could commit perjury based on his own assessment of his own drinking in high school and college.

The odds of any of this being proven…or, if it is proven, being unknown to Senators already…is about zero.

Tom Cotton is absolutely correct. Drug and alcohol abuse are the big factors in any background check. When I went through mine, the big things they were interested in was drug and alcohol usage and finances.

I hope Kavanaugh did throw a punch. I hope he knocked some guy’s d*** in the dirt. I hope he took a punch or two himself. It makes me think a lot more highly of him than I would of some spoiled, rich, privileged prep school, Ivy League law grad who never did anything in his entire life. It also lets me know that Kavanaugh is about as squeaky clean as a 50+-year-old man can be.
