Lying should be good enough to disqualify him…..the sexual assault allegations especially from College and HS …it will be hard to prove bec you expect that they will deny it

You guys are pathetic. It's innocent until proven guilty, unless you are on Trump's side right?

As someone who's living in Germany, the first question that came to my mind was:
'About what kind of beer we are talking here?'
I'm sure the answer to this question should expose his ability to judge.

Notice how he confidently denies ever blacking out, but when asked if excessive drinking ever prevented him from fully recollecting the night before (meaning he could have committed sexual assault and not remembered it without fully blacking out), the confident denial vanishes, and is replaced by evasion tactics…like turning the question on the questioner to avoid answering. "Have you?" = GUILT.

Washington Post really reaching. Top Yale student in academics while being a jock. Serves on the 2nd highest court in the U.S.. He is going to get in, and if he doesn't that's a shame you can be guilty with no evidence what so ever. I hope he gets Drunk after he gets on the supreme court.

Classic Shady Democrat tactics. Accuse them of one thing you know isn't true and then hope he slips up in any sort of area whatsoever. O he admitted to drinking, let's make him look like a bad guy… Because the majority of America can't relate to liking beer. LOL stupid stupid Democrats.

The Democrats political hitjobs and incessant whining are enough to drive me to drink. And I'm an alcoholic who quit 10 years ago. I wonder if I can sue Feinstein, Booker and all the other democrats for making me drink again. Hmmmm.

Alcohol really? How about we start questioning ford on how her accusations don't add up and that multiple witnesses said this never happened, On why the democrats with held this information for a month or how professionals all agreed that miss fords opening statement was full of holes and forced attempts of emotion, a.k.a faking it.

The guy is such a jerk and liar. And a judge should know to answer the questions. I know that in court if a judge asked you a question and you turned around and asked him a question he would not be pleased with it at all. The Senators ask the questions. The witness is supposed to answer the questions

Ginsberg passed out during obamas 2015 SOTU address from drinking too much, I don't recall leftist being concerned at all about that. Hypocrisy is all democrats deal in.

Watching mcgann's face in these hearings is more interesting. Kavanaugh is so obviously lying that watching his homely continence is a bore. McGann is pulling his strings. That's interesting to see, his reactions to the ludicrous garbage he has advised Kavanaugh to sell.

I heard special K
make evasive, misleading answers to questions about his drinking, that he was a virgin, studied hard, his calendars & yearbook, etc during his testimony under oath on Thursday.

Thus I believe that he’s more likely to lie about more important matters.
That is unacceptable.

Right now K is like a cornered animal, fighting for his reputation.
We saw his personality shift during Thursday’s testimony.
He is very partisan, aggressive, confrontational.
Special K does not have the temperament to sit on the Court.

Where was the media when rumors of President Obama's cocaine use in high school came up?

I would say he downplayed it a bit. As far as flat out lying about his drinking, not really.

Not defending kavanaugh. Nor should this comment be linked to sexual misconduct allegations againt BK. But isnt experimenting with alcohol and maybe overdoing it once or twice normal for any 18ish kid?

He lied under oath about drinking legally in high school. He said legal drinking age was 18, but it was 21.

The Washington Post supports the idea that uncorroborated accusations are sufficient to destroy a man and derail the process. I came here because Youtube showed me an ad. I came here specifically to waste your ad money.

You are actually working to weaponize uncorroborated accusations against innocent men and women which is detrimental to the fairness necessary for a functioning society.

Tell your owner Bezos that I'll never buy another product from Amazon. I spend a lot of money, and now I'd rather buy local or not at all. Whatever I need, I don't need it so bad as to help him continue destroying this country.

I watched a Man testify, one who I could care whether he was confirmed or not, simply show through his demeanor that he was being deceptive. A video of Kavanaughs Testimony could be used in any CIA Training 101 Class "How To Spot Deception"

You'd think that the dems would be too embarrassed to pursue Kavanaugh after Ford was a major league fail, but no, they doubled down, started in on his temperament and his private consumption of a totally legal substance. Guess it just goes to show how desperate the Left is in stopping an Trump pick. They have absolutely no shame. Their desperation removes all commonsensical boundaries. Wow, just wow!

He lied about being 18 when drinking in high school. He turned 18 Feb 1983, Maryland raised the drinking age limit to 21 in 1982. So anytime he drank in Maryland up until Feb. 1986 he did so illegally. Additionally his OWN CALENDAR shows that he was drinking as early as July 1, 1982 when he was only 17. I know the "boys will be boys" defense, but the point is that at age 51 he is willing to lie UNDER OATH to hide the fact that he was a serial law breaker between the ages of 17 to 21.
