Last week’s dual testimony from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh was quite the spectacle.
The nine hour ordeal was at times both raucous and somber, oscillating between moods at a rate seldom seen in American politics. The reactions of the mainstream media were even more manic than the proceedings themselves, with spinsters in the media pulling out all of the stops in order to make their case from the contradictory testimony provided.
At this point, the fate of the entire process seems hinged on whether or not the FBI can corroborate any of the claims being made by Dr. Ford, (or others), or if they will end up discovering inconsistencies from within her testimony.
Today, it appears as though concerns over the possibility of the latter are emerging.

The problem, of course, is that Dr. Ford claimed that she had never coached anyone in the art of the polygraph, (which is inadmissible in legal proceedings anyway), and also that her week-long trip to Washington DC for the hearing was purely to avoid her fear of flying. Republicans have pondered the possibility that Dr. Ford’s refusal to fly to Washington was beneficial to the democratic cause as it allowed Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser to seek outside help in preparing her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, whereas Brett Kavanaugh was prepared to defend his name immediately following the appearance of the allegations.
