Boy, this attempt to smear Judge Kavanaugh using tried and true methods the Democrats are famous for is simply not working according to plan. Is it?
It seems to me that Operation Smear Kavanaugh is blowing up in their faces.
No, not like a trick cigar.
More like … well, since the ResistanceLOL loves Harry Potter, let’s say it’s more like this:
This noxious stew of slander, unprovable accusations, last-minute smears and innuendo are straight out of the Democrat playbook.
But there’s one thing the Democrats didn’t factor in.
And that’s Donald Trump.
It wasn’t supposed to go this far. Senate Republicans were supposed to buckle. Trump was supposed to get wobbly. Kavanaugh was supposed to have dropped out by now. Senate Democrats had no contingency plan for a scenario in which people demanded evidence.

This is why the Democrats are being forced to move the goal posts.
No longer are they demanding that Kavanaugh’s accuser have the opportunity to testify.
Now, they’re well-I-nevering that the Republicans happily obliged.
The Republicans weren’t supposed to call their bluff.
And now Operation Smear Kavanaugh is blowing apart.
I have to admit, I’m rather surprised to see even squishy Lindsey Graham showing a bit of backbone here.
Requiring an FBI investigation of a 36 year old allegation (without specific references to time or location) before Professor Ford will appear before the Judiciary Committee is not about finding the truth, but delaying the process till after the midterm elections.

For the first time in my memory, Republicans aren’t letting the Democrats slap them around like a redheaded step child.
They’re fighting back.
Trump, for all his flaws, is giving the GOP a backbone it never had. Repubs caved to Obama for 8 years. No way would GOP Senate be standing their ground now under a President Kasich or President Jeb Bush. This is why we tolerate the more seemly aspects of Trump. It's worth it

Democrat strategy so far:
1. Sit on this information for months.
2. Leak to the press at the 11th hour (violating Dr. Ford’s request for privacy.)
3. Demand a hearing.
4. Complain that a hearing has been scheduled.
They’re delaying at all costs.

In the past the Democrats have gotten away with these kinds of underhanded and slimy tactics.
And for that reason they expected Operation Smear Kavanaugh to go off without a hitch.
Well it isn’t. And now Democrats are pushing too hard and too far.
You know. Like they always do.
“I’ve found every single piece of information from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford eminently credible, sincere and believable.“ – Sen. Feinstein
“I can't say everything’s truthful. I don't know.” – also Sen. Feinstein

Like every other Democrat smear campaign, Operation Smear Kavanaugh could only work if the Republicans immediately bent over and surrendered.
The Democrats have no Plan B.
So they’re scrambling.
I find it rather astonishing that the Democrats didn’t consider that doubling and tripling down while repeatedly moving the goal posts might blow up in their faces.
They do recall, do they not, that the Midterms are just weeks away?
And all they’re succeeding in doing is horrifying voters by acting like slimy, disgusting cranks.
The biggest complaint lodged against Republicans in Congress is that they are unwilling to fight back. It is the one thing that dampens voter enthusiasm every time.
Well, that’s not the case now, is it?
Democrats are foolish if they don’t realize that this will only embolden Republican voters come election day.
But it isn’t just Senate Democrats who are flailing.
The media is no better.
Former GOP activist David Brock predicts tough treatment by the GOP towards Brett Kavanaugh's accuser. https://t.co/rQbmUhatUt

Come on. If you have to resort to calling David “Media Matters” Brock a “former GOP activist,” you’re flailing big time. When was he a Republican last? The eighties? Really?
This is like saying of Hillary “Former Goldwater girl has harsh words for Republican Trump.”
Operation Smear Kavanaugh had to take his nomination down on the first blow.
And the Democrats misfired.
In fact, they haven’t just misfired.
They’ve completely lost control — kinda like this:

That’s the thing about a surprise attack. It only works if you maintain the element of surprise and gain the upper hand quickly.
But the Democrat blew it on both counts – in large part because Republicans aren’t playing their part.
The problem they have now is they’re so far out on a limb, they cannot dial it back.
Their only option is to push even further, get even more hysterical, and amp up the slanderous rhetoric to Spinal Tap 11.
And that’s not exactly an ideal position to be in this close to an election.
