    Another reason why Judge probably will not testify. If he did he would almost certainly be questioned about this excerpt from his book.
    The 100-keg quest: Kavanaugh classmate Mark Judge details senior year at Georgetown Prep - CNNPolitics
    Although not directly on point regarding Blasey Ford's allegations it doesn't reflect well on Kavanaugh and although he is referred to as "Bart" in the book Judge was almost certainly referring to Brett Kavanaugh.

    That would be only one of many things he would be asked about.

    Wow, over 2,000 posts of speculation and nobody has even testified yet.

    To be fair, a 5 person keg party would have to be quite the drink-fest.

    That would be 33 beers each to float the keg!

    One other point about the fourth person identified by Dr. Ford as being at the party stating to the JC that she doesn’t remember it and doesn’t know/remember Kavanaugh, this basically sticks a fork in the idea of any future hearings about Kavanaugh. All four people have submitted sworn statements under the penalty for perjury. There is no physical evidence left, so only testimony from the participants would be available for an investigation. All four individuals named have all stated under penalty of perjury that they have no memory of the incident. There is no where for this charge to go and there is no way to prove anyone is lying. If a story were to change, that would open that person up to a perjury charge. I’m not sure what anyone thinks an investigation of this charge is going to find when everyone involved, except Dr. Ford has no memory of it.

    Same thing with filing a criminal complaint in MC of MD. The local police will take one look at the charges and testimony and say that there is no information to back up the accusation. A ambitious MC prosecutor might try to try anyway but it will be dismissed for lack of evidence.

    I was going to say, I can personally attest that it fairly easily can be done.

    Y’all are out of your mind if you think a random high school student can drink 33 beers in one sitting, unless that sitting is maybe like 10+ hours long.

    There are definitely people who can do it. But they tend to either be huge, or be people who drink heavily almost every day and have for years. It takes a lot of tolerance to down 33 beers - that’s just a little shy of two fifths of liquor in terms of alcohol content.

    Just joking, I did not partake in HS, but I'm guessing if I did, 33 beers in one day would put me in the hospital. Probably would now, too. I have known people that have been able to pound it like that, though.

    I'd put it like this, it's less likely to overcome reasonable doubt in a court. But this is not court. This is a hearing for a life-time appointment, thus the standards are different, if unclear about what they are. One-hundred people get to vote what they believe without having to explain why, so it will be up to each individual senator what kind of credibility they would give to the accusation and to the denial and how to use this in determining their vote.

    We should acknowledge that humans have faulty memories, Yet the trauma of victimization, to include non-violent and non-criminal incidents, can last a lifetime. We might forget some details of an incident occurring long ago, it doesn't mean we forget key details such as what happened and who the perp was.

    And why did she wait to come forward now if she wanted to avoid all this & be outed/betrayed by Feinstein? Nothing has changed in this scenario in one year.

    But she does add the caveat that she believes Ford & is a life long friend. She escapes perjury but avoids the wrath of the left...wise move on her part.

    You don't think people can be continually conflicted about coming forward under such circumstances?

    Might we wonder why, for instance, why adults come forward decades after being molested as children, say by a Catholic Priest? Or why sometimes when one woman comes forward (say for instance Bill Cosby's vics), others finally come forward decades later?

    The prospect is often frightening, and for good reason because the response to it from some quarters is predictably horrible.

    Actually, now that I think of it there were 6 of us at a house in New Smyrna. Finished it off in about in a little more than 18 hours with a 5-6 crash embedded in that time.
