15. Got a link? I completely agree with this assessment.

What I think I found particularly disturbing yesterday was how he blew up. Watching his face grow flushed. Looked like a couple of glaring red spots or enlarged pimples that appeared on his face. Large angry-looking red rashes on his cheeks that spread down the sides of his neck, looking like they continued on down under his shirt collar.

It was VERY easy to see how he could be a belligerent drunk - angry, menacing, terrorizing, intimidating. My husband calls it “turning big and red” when you get really angry.

He reminded me of something Carl Sagan once said about one of the moons of Jupiter. Io, I think it was. Strange hot blemished swollen-looking orb he described as “a diseased fruit.” He’d be terrifying to be around when he got angry. Loud, loutish, bullying, arguing and interrupting and domineering. Really rather unnerving and frightening.

I can TOTALLY see how Dr. Ford felt that awful night when she was only 15 years old. If I were pinned under that with his hand clamped over my mouth to keep me from screaming while he was trying to tear my clothes off, I too would be terrified that he was about to kill me.

Hey Brett, you may have bullied your way onto the Supreme Court. You may have buffaloed unpteen old white men with superiority complexes. But you never fooled us women. Millions of us know EXACTLY who you are, and what you are. You are a MONSTER.
