I’m a woman, but I can certainly see that if a young teenager gets liquored up, he or she is quite liable to do something they would NEVER do, if sober. Wouldn’t have the nerve, or wouldn’t even think of it, especially a kid like I imagine Kavanaugh was -— eagle scout type, super reliable and so forth. Having said that, IF Kavanaugh did this, it is NOT a big deal, but lying about it IS. I sincerely hope he didn’t do it, and I don’t think he did, but if I’m wrong about that, and he has to admit to it NOW, he’s through. I really, really hope he’s telling the truth.
Actually, admitting to it now would be the worst thing. At this point, he has to stay the course or we lose more than the appointment.
