Yale “Bar Fight” 1985: “a 21-year-old man accused Mr. Kavanaugh of throwing ice on him “for some unknown reason”…

Some things are just funny as written.  A staff writer for the New York Times, Emily Bazelon, couldn’t avoid joining the increasingly silly resistance foray against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.  So the Yale Law School ‘fellow’ co-authored a story about a “bar fight in 1985” during which master Kavanaugh was accused of throwing ice at another cashmere patron.

Apparently Ivy-League “bar fights”, the ultimate rabble-rousing right-of-passage amid the Corinthian leather bar stool crowd, are something less than what those of us below the Mason-Dixon might be accustomed to – amid hardwood lumber and sawdust brawls.

The New York Times now says: “it was a mistake“.

    I must confess that while in college I once threw some chipped ice at an silly woman. I didn’t get into too much trouble for it though she did report me to the authorities. LOL

    Is Rosenstein working on another fake dossier on Kavanaugh as we speak? Who’s checking his work?

    There’s a slew of perjury claims being documented against the accusers. Politics is a dirty business, and the GOP might consider dropping charges in exchange for letters of apology and XX democrat confirmation votes. If Kav isn’t confirmed, I hope disbarment and perjury charges rain down upon this Marxist inquisition.

      At this point that would probably be the worst thing that the GOP leadership should do – the dems would claim that McConnell was trying to intimidate/bribe their vote because he knew Kavenaugh was such a weak nominee or some such nonsense.

      I believe the slander laws in the U.S. do not protect public figures. I believe any attempt by a public figure to vindicate oneself with a lawsuit would be dismissed.

        You are correct, but wouldn’t what they’re doing be considered false accusations. Saying someone is a creep or a Nazi or sexist is one thing, saying they did something that they did not do is false accusations. I may very well be wrong.

      Don’t drop charges. Prosecute them.

      This is dumber than actual Marxist inquisitions. At least in the Soviet Union there were charges of conspiracy or revolt. Here, the trumped-up charges are of throwing frozen water and wanting to hook up with a drunk girl.

      It circles back to a repeated observation of mine. The modern Left schemes, and cheats, and lies, but as you see with Ford, or the Russian dossier, or Swetnick, not to mention Hillary’s run-in with snipers and Brian Williams helicopter firefights, they’re really, really bad at it. It’s like my co-worker who missed something like 9 days of work last winter, each with a flat tire. For God’s sake, try harder than that.

    Perhaps someone has asked this question, if not, it should be forwarded to the FBI immediately for investigation.
    After the Democrats learn of it first and make the Sunday news shows telling all sorts of wild-eyed tales…

    To the question.

    Perhaps Kavanaugh saw the guy had a bloody lip, and he was just thinking, “better put some ice on that”, before putting on his sunglasses and walking out the door to the governors mansion.

    I am certain that Coach K will be serve his country well on the Supreme Court, but after this ice incident, I confess I must question his 1980’s judgement.

    UB40? Ice in your beer?

    I’m old enough to remember when Slick Willie’s lawyer went after Paula Jones, and the head of the National Organization for Women accused him of using a “nuts and sluts” defense to destroy Jones.

    It seems that the Clinton/Uniparty machine has found it to be a handy offensive weapon, also.

    This is what the what the left thinks of women, how it uses them as weapons for scandal or crushes
    real victims as needed to defend their own. Mere tools and objects, and it always gets reduced to the basest level.

    Any man who has a mother, daughter, sister or wife should think about that before they vote in the midterms.

    I was in one real bar fight in my life, down in Virginia Beach after a rugby tournament. One of the hosting team members owned a bar, and used it to host the post-game party. All was going well and then suddenly it wasn’t. In about one second, the place went from social to insanity – it was like one of those western movie saloon fights where everyone suddenly punches out the guy next to them, for no real reason. Honestly, it was terrifying But I can tell you, I don’t recall seeing anyone mean enough to throw ice cubes! I guess that must be the next level, just before the homicides start.

      Thank you for finding this! I can’t hear “Corinthian” without thinking of Ricardo Montalban (even sometimes in church).

        Either SNL or SCTV had a skit about this commercial. I forget who played Ricardo Montalban… it might have been Ricardo Montalban as himself, guest hosting the show.

        That was the clip I tried to find. It was a parody of the several commercials he did for Cordoba and other Chrysler models, always with the ‘Corinthian’ leather.

        In the parody, he’s even more over-the-top than the actual commercials, everything was ‘Corinthian’, and concludes with (in his thickest accent), “It’s as good a car… as I (dramatic pause) yamanactor!”

        yamanactor = ‘am an actor’, with heavy Ricardo Montalban accent 😁
