For John, BLUF: "Brett Kavanaugh, the sequel." Nothing to see here; just move along.
Why They Fight: For Many Women, Kavanaugh Could've Been Their Husband, and the Covington Teens Could've Been Their Sons
From Town Hall, by Mr Guy Benson, 25 January 2019.
Here is the lede plus five:
A sharp insight from National Review's David French, who agrees with me that there are some relevant parallels between the Kavanaugh fight and the Covington affair. Why were conservatives so energized over both controversies? Because they witnessed the Left trying to destroy lives and reputations, regardless of evidence, for nakedly political and tribalistic reasons. Many right-leaning women, in particular, have bristled at the remorseless, ends-driven attacks, which have drawn them into the fight.I guess the Democrats feel the demographics favor them and they can afford to gaff off the Catholics (and Evangelicals). They could be wrong.
It wasn't so long ago that Roman Catholics were considered the quintessential Democrat. In about 1944 our soon to be Landlord asked my Father if he was Catholic. My Father, in a very narrow, Clintonesk sort of way, ignored my Mother's faith and said, no, but why do you ask. Mr Harry C Verrick responded, "We aren't against Catholics, it is just they tend to vote Democrat." There were six Catholic families in town, a lawyer, a naval architect, a dentist, a grocer, a butcher and us.
