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.

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.

Kavanaugh will have to come back credibly to keep his nomination.

UPDATE: He did.
