I ❤️ Lindsey Graham

0

I have a confession to make: I have fallen madly in love with Senator Lindsey Graham.

And I am willing to offer the good senator sexual favors in exchange for him going full Spartacus on behalf of doctors who prescribe pain medications — you know, the guys who are being thrown in federal prison for treating pain?

All right, let’s be honest — I’d probably offer it up anyway.

The FBI doesn’t have the authority to investigate this as a criminal affair.  The most they could have done (and are doing now) is reopen Brett’s background check (yes, we are now on a first-name basis because I’m tired of typing his last name).

Montgomery County police have no reason to investigate him, because despite the crap you may have seen floating around, the statute of limitations has long since expired.

Senate Republicans don’t have the authority to call for the FBI to reopen his background check; the only one who does is Trump, and he has repeatedly pointed out that Brett’s already been through half a dozen background checks and emerged squeaky-clean.

Personally, I would‘ve liked to have seen Brett offer to take a polygraph.  (And for all we know, he may have made such a request.)  But that also would’ve been Trump’s call to make.  Precedent demands only that he select someone qualified and vetted.  The Constitution demands even less.

But moving on to more interesting matters: Christine Ford.  The scrub job they did on her is astounding.  This woman no longer existed by the time she took the stand, apart from three old sunglasses pics, two black and white photos from when she was a minor, and the “I Believe Christine” brand — which has made her into a millionaire.

Her house, her car — everything was transferred over to the name of an associate prior to her own name being “leaked”.  She’s a ghost, man.

They did such a good job of erasing her past that there is no record of her ever having published a SINGLE research paper — despite being a RESEARCH psychologist — or having taught at either of the two universities at which she is said to have taught.

Are you ready for the kicker?  It appears they may have accidentally erased any and all record of her ever having been licensed to practice clinical psychology.  (Not that she’ll need another day job after this.)

Or else she committed perjury when she testified to being a licensed psychologist, and has been defrauding both universities all along.  Which is entirely plausible, seeing how she lied about when she had her house remodeled — 2008, rather than 2012, which is significant because the two front doors serve as the time stamp by which she’s claiming to have first identified Brett as her groper.

Her testimony’s falling apart (like, whoa), she’s being publicly shredded by her former classmates, and her family wants nothing to do with any of it.  But: #BelieveWomen. 🙄

Christine Ford 🙄

Can we just get something straight, please?  All those reports of Christine Ford having passed what’s been described as an “FBI polygraph” are patently false and based on a misquote of the original Washington Post article:

Ford took a polygraph test administered by a former FBI agent in early August. The results, which Katz provided to The Post, concluded that Ford was being truthful when she said a statement summarizing her allegations was accurate.

In other words, someone (who?) read Ford a statement (what?) summarizing her allegations (which version?), and then asked her if the statement was “accurate”.  That’s all the Washington Post is claiming — period.

That this is the strongest claim the Post was willing to make after seeing the full polygraph results is simply mind blowing.

I can’t be the only one who noticed this, but it’s been ten days now, and I’ve yet to see anyone raise this point.

True, some have questioned the accuracy of the results — which no other media outlet has been permitted to examine — along with the objectivity of a polygrapher whose credentials remain unverified.

Others are asking who paid for it — as if that were particularly relevant and not painfully obvious.  (NO ONE has suggested Ford actually paid for a polygraph out of her own pocket.)

But the fact that no one has decried the Washington Post’s deceptive wording and the ensuing game of telephone is truly astounding.

Then again, consider the number of social media users who don’t bother reading past the headlines.

If Ford isn’t about to testify, can we at least pin down what it is she’s accusing him of?  Because it’s gone from groping to attempted rape and murder.

It also might be nice to establish how many people were there the night that nobody else seems to remember (4 or 5?) and just how many of these people actually tried to rape and kill her (4 or 2?).

Especially Dianne Cheinstein.
