During Thursday’s wild testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Brett Kavanaugh was at pains to explain his 1983 high school yearbook entry.
The entry, shown below, contains thinly-veiled references to drinking and, of course, sex.
To be sure, there’s nothing unusual about high schoolers talking about drinking and sex.
What is disconcerting (if not unusual, given the picture we’re now getting of Kavanaugh) is the idea that, decades later, a Supreme Court nominee would tell bald-faced lies during sworn testimony to Congress.
During Thursday’s hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse quizzed Kavanaugh about the meaning of some of the references in that yearbook entry. At one point, Whitehouse asked Kavanaugh to explain, for the record, what he meant by “boofing”.
You’ll note that the wording of Kavanaugh’s reference (“Judge, have you boofed yet?”) is copied verbatim in a similar entry from Mark Judge, who Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford claims witnessed the alleged sexual assault that’s at the heart of the firestorm around Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. “Bart, have you boofed yet?”, reads Judge’s page. In Judge’s memoirs he references a character named “Bart O’Kavanaugh” who had a penchant for vomiting in vehicles and passing out drunk.
In other words, if you don’t think Brett is “Bart” and that “boofing” is either a reference to drinking or sex, then you are either a stone cold moron, or you’re being deliberately obtuse. Sheldon Whitehouse is neither:
Got that? Kavanaugh would have you believe that at age 16, he and Mark Judge were simply asking each other if they’ve farted yet.
Now let’s just go ahead and ignore the fact that even saying that is a tacit admission that Brett = “Bart” (something Kavanaugh would attempt to kinda, sorta deny), and focus on how absolutely absurd that contention is. “Boof” is clearly a reference to either ingesting alcohol anally or else to anal sex, with the latter being far more likely given how the slang term has evolved. Period. Just Google it, because apparently Sheldon Whitehouse did.
Additionally, the term “Devil’s triangle” means a male-male-female threesome. It’s not a damn “drinking game” as Kavanaugh would have you believe. And even if it was, that kind of begs the question here because after all, this is a guy who spent hours on Thursday trying to play down the idea that he was a figurative “devil” who drank heavily.
In any event, Whitehouse on Friday revisited Kavanaugh’s absurd obfuscations and lies and delivered one of the most straightforward, common sense-based assessments of Thursday’s farcical proceedings that anyone’s heard yet.
We’ll present it here without further comment because frankly, if you don’t understand what’s going on here by now, then there’s no hope for you…
