So when you spend most of your adult life listening to ska music, you eventually encounter a song called “Longshot Kick De Bucket.” And you will inevitably get the lyrics wrong and have no idea what the song is about.
The song is about a horse, and, if you’re curious about that story, you can read it over at skabook.
“Longshot” has been playing a lot in my personal brain jukebox lately due to my own tendency to get the lyrics wrong. Rather than hearing “Caymanas park,” my hearing of it is more akin to “Kavanaugh spa.” And that’s been that way like forever, long before this Kavanaugh dude wanted to be a U.S. Justice.
Speaking of Kavanaugh: In 2003, during his confirmation to the federal appeals court, Sen. Dick Durbin called him the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics … whether it’s Elian Gonzalez or the Starr Report, you are there.”
Remember the Starr Report? Are you a fan? Well, one of the authors you revere is Brett Kavanaugh.
Here’s a bit of an explanation from Stephen Bates, another co-author of the famous Starr Report:
The Starr Report was the product of an office. It didn’t represent the individual views of any one staffer. Nor did it have a single drafter. Andy Leipold principally drafted the introduction; Craig Lerner and I were the principal authors of the factual overview; and Brett drafted the outline of acts that potentially constituted grounds for impeachment. I don’t want to overstate this division of labor. Everyone in the office worked to some degree on all parts of the referral, as we called it. But broadly speaking, it’s fair to summarize the division by saying that the presentation of law in the impeachment counts of the document is mainly Brett’s prose; the presentation of facts in the narrative is not. When disagreements arose, final decisions ultimately were Ken’s. And once he had made a decision, on the referral or anything else, we all set aside any disagreements and implemented that decision.
So. United States Justice candidate Brett Kavanaugh A) Was wholly responsible for blowing up the myth that Bill and Hillary Clinton murdered Vince Foster, and B) helped author The Starr Report, which spelled out in explicit detail President Clinton’s physical relationship with a lady, a report that was released to the entire American public and that probably still be purchased at your local Barnes & Noble to this day.
Why do you reckon Brett Kavanaugh has such a paranoid hard-on for the Clintons?
