This may (or may not) be Judge Kavanaugh in his "boys will be boys" phase

Republican senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee have denied that Mr. Kavanaugh was sipping alcohol during the hearing Thursday.

That is, with his periodic need to refresh his throat with what might have been water (Ms. Ford was sipping from Coca-Cola), there is some question on the ingredients of his libation.

Senator Graham, for example, has vigorously denied that Mr. Kavanaugh’s performance at the hearing reflected the very behavior he has been accused of when inebriated.

According to his accusers, that means belligerent and aggressive.

Specifically at the hearing—

*interrupting questioners so they had difficulty completing their questions

*sidestepping the point of a question into a general defense of his virtues

*evading questions while holding forth on his virtues

*aggressively challenging some questions

*responding with a cold and nasty “What are you talking about?” to one questioner

The most explosive of all these responses, however, was his asking two different questioners, “What do you like to drink, Senator?”

This response followed discussion of his love of beer during the old school days and some remarks in his yearbook of that time.

Mr. Kavanaugh maintained that no matter how many beers he drank he remained steady and clear throughout, with no problems in throwing up.

“Yes, I drank beer, I like beer. What do you like to drink, Senator?”

This question hung at the hearing room like a gnat with yellow garters.

Several witnesses have now ascertained there is no truth whatsoever to the following observation on Mr. Kavanaugh’s behavior during a break.

That is, some say he took hold of Senator Feinstein and pushed her up against a wall, and groped her in the corridor on the way to the water cooler.

Ms. Feinstein’s office has responded: “The FBI must be brought into this matter right now , as we have been ascertaining all along!”

The Republicans on the Committee have replied in chorus:

"We deeply regret Mr. Kavanaugh's being subjected to a continuation of this circus!"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
