Christine Blasey Ford believes her story, which matters more than whether her story is true. These hearings are in a political forum, and the rules of politics differ from the rules of law.
Was her claim she was afraid of flying exposed as bogus? Yes.
Could she have a false memory? Yes.
Are there a lot of mistakes in her story? Yes.
Is she hazy on crucial details? Yes.
Did he consult with political operatives? Yes.
Will any of the above matter? No.
He means he believes her.
Attractiveness is credibility.
Yeah, I didn't want to believe that either. https://t.co/6DfuPaBHAu

That people have to nit-pick Ford’s testimony and point about double standards (which are real, look at Juanita Broaddrick) shows how credible and compelling Ford is as a witness. No one doubts that she believes something happened.
We learned today that Ford cannot remember:
– Time/date/location of party
– Who drove her to party
– Who was at party
– Who pushed her into room
– Who drove her from party
– Date/who paid for her polygraph
– Grandmother's funeral date?
But "100% sure" it was Kavanaugh 36 yrs ago

Kavanaugh will have to come back credibly to keep his nomination.
UPDATE: He did.
