Let's resist the temptation to go down the Kavanaugh rabbit hole, shall we?

It doesn’t matter one whit what strange and immoral acts/pranks were part of the behavior of the frats that Kavanaugh belonged to while at Yale. Focussing on that simply adds an air of desperation to the opposition.

It is enough that he tried to rape a woman. It is enough that he lied numerous times under oath, both in his current confirmation hearings for the SCOTUS and in previous hearings that led to him having his current job.

Keep on message and KISS. Otherwise we engage in the kind of fever swamp thinking of the Benghazi “investigators” and the JFK CTists.

4. People get that lying and assaulting others is wrong.

When you start talking about panty raids and drunken orgies you’re off into “eeww” territory. Easy to believe that the people making such accusations themselves have an unhealthy interest in such things.

8. It does, and you're right. But you aren't the general public.

5. I think it gives context. It was the milieu he swam in (and loved)

Also, the fact that he was still fondly recalling drunken episodes in his late 40s, in speeches to law students, tells quite a lot about where his head is STILL at.
