If I can produce someone who saw John Roberts penis in college, can we get the Obamacare opinion overturned?
As all MSNBC viewers are well aware, last Sundays edition of The New York Times ran an excerpt of the book The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, which revives Debbie Ramirez's accusations against the Supreme Court nominee.
Quick reminder: This is NOT the Kavanaugh accuser with two front doors. It is NOT the Kavanaugh accuser whose own father warned that she had psychological problems.
This is the one who didnt remember what Kavanaugh did to her for more than 30 years, until a few lefty friends helpfully reminded her that theyd heard something about it from a guy, who heard it from a guy, whereupon she spent six days assessing her memories during the nomination hearings -- and darned if it didnt all come back to her!
What the guy who heard it from a guy heard was that, at a drunken party in a freshman dorm, Kavanaugh unzipped his pants and stuck his penis in Ramirezs face.
Contrary to Pogrebin and Kellys claim that at least seven people heard about the Yale incident long before Mr. Kavanaugh was a federal judge," this vast array of witnesses includes only one person whose secondhand, rumor-mill story includes both Kavanaugh and Ramirez: Kenneth Appold.
(All we know about Appold is that he is a professor at the Princeton Theological Seminary, meaning that he is less likely to believe in God than any person not a professor at the Princeton Theological Seminary.)
The guy Appold claims he heard it from doesnt remember it.
Are you following how absurd this is?
This is not merely hearsay; its double hearsay offered by only one person, and he wasnt there, but he heard about it from another person, who denies knowledge of it. And the corpus delecti is something that happened with a group of drunk teenagers 35 years ago. Read More »
