    I just heard Lindsey Graham say that he made an official offer to Ford to fly out and talk to her so that she would not need to come to the circus. Then when they met face to face at the circus, she said she never received the offer. He said he about fell out of his chair.

    Naturally, he did not say Ford was lying, he just chalked it up to someone deliberately sabotaging communication with her. He then went off on Feinstein's staff for leaking the story because she never wanted it to become public. Naturally, he did not blame Feinstein personally cuz he has to work with these people every day.

    Crazy stuff

    It was probably posturing and/or a negotiation tactic.

    under those terms lying is acceptable?

    It casts some doubt on her credibility, but doesn't impeach it entirely. Also, it's hard to call it a "lie." She may have SOME fear of flying. When people are negotiating, they often say they "can't" close by February 1 when they really can, but want negotiating leverage. It's a white lie, perhaps, but it's a routine part of negotiation.

    How many lies is one allowed before they lose credibility?

    Credibility is more nuanced than that.

    That's absurd. She claimed many times yesterday that she wanted to speak to anyone, up to and including the President's staff, about Kavanaugh. Graham is a member of the judiciary committee. Of course she would want to talk to him if her goal was to get her story to those who mattered on this issue.

    LOL

    Blumenthal disagrees with you...

    "Blumenthal began his questioning by saying, “Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus” (false in one thing, false in everything)–what a despicable creep!"

    Blumenthal's cliche is an oversimplification.

    Obviously.

    If your kid lies to you about taking cookies, does that mean you'll never believe him again.

    "false in one thing, false in everything" is oversimplified rubbish.

    A better question is why she would want to talk to people who had already publically said they were going to vote down Kav prior to the revelations.

    I thought the idea was to vote him down.

    What's with the "LOL"s in random, inappropriate places?
