The first fact of life is this:

Men always lie about sex.

The versions are: (1) It was great (2) It was horrible (3) Well, I wish I hadn’t had that last beer or (4) It Never Happened (Republicans usually capitalize the letters, sometimes all the letters).

We are focused on the last one today.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh says he didn’t sexually abuse that woman (Christine Blasey Ford) in high school. He wants to say that in testimony to the 21-member Senate Judiciary Committee which has 17 men and four women. His accuser wants an FBI investigation before the hearing because she wants to avoid a he said-she said moment.

Republican members want to get this over with and hold the hearing as quickly as possible which is code for, “there’s no time for a silly investigation by the country’s premier investigating authority.” After all, The Supreme Court’s term begins October 1st. We gotta do this.

Remember, it was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (yes, a Republican) who didn’t even hold a hearing for President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland who has selected half a year before the November 2016 election.

Do the math: Kavanaugh was selected in July, three months before the 2017 mid-term election.

Taking the Big Picture view, it is clear men will continue to lie about sex and investigating claims they did or didn’t is waste of time. He said-she said continues to have too much “me-too.”
