Where were you 36 years ago on Wednesday, one day in March or was it August? And who were you sexually assaulted by on that day or was it that night? Maybe on your lunch hour? While you figure that out, I will try to remember what I did last Tuesday at 3:17 PM. The allegations against Judge Cavenaugh were like drifting mists of the morning. Vaporous and thin as a veil with NO substance.
What the senate hearings did show was that the Republicans are just as phony as the good Judge’s accusers. The Judge said he was a “virgin” until his mid college years. Why wasn’t that statement as valid as some California socialist, activist woman who claimed he “laid on top of her at some drunken party” almost forty years ago?
Sexual assaults and especially rape is a SERIOUS accusation and is not to be taken lightly. But compare the reputations of the Judge’s accuser and that of the Judge. His yearbook from high school shows him to have been what we would today call a “nerd.” He was scholarly and serious about his work. The woman who accused him of attempted rape had her yearbook REMOVED from the Internet because it described her as basically a drunken party animal who bragged on “seducing younger male students.” Don’t bother trying to look this up, it is gone but not before some of us read it.
The tragedy of it all is what this despicable woman tried to do to an honorable man. The Judge will be on the Supreme Court where he will be a strict constitutionalist as he should be. And thank God he didn’t let the leftist, socialist mobs make him say “to hell with all this lying abuse” and go his way.
The Republicans should never have opened this can of worms. Because now it has not only affected the Judge who will survive – it has done every man in this country a grave disservice. Women predators such as the female who accused the Judge have now made every young man afraid to even flirt with a woman for fear that some phony “memory” will come back three or four decades later to ruin his career and hurt his family. A woman can now make any “claim “and it will be instantly accepted as truth. The man named is automatically a criminal and his word means nothing. This may be one of the saddest periods in American history.
