Where Brett Kavanaugh lost me: A conservative former appeals judge explains why he turned against the nominee

I watched the hearings hoping, and maybe expecting, that I could disbelieve her and believe him, but I couldn’t. Can anyone who watched Ford totally disbelieve her? Okay, her credibility isn’t 100% (“fear of flying”). But with understandable exceptions, she testified like a smart, honest woman, in the grip of strong emotion but trying hard to tell the truth. The idea that she fabricated her encounter with Kavanaugh, or imagined it, seems fantastic. And the idea that she’s thinking of another guy is totally implausible. This wasn’t a stranger attack. She knew him.
