So yesterday we have the “shattering” news of Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct via a letter that Dianne Feinstein had been holding for over a month, and which fizzles rather fast after it is leaked that the impropriety was a high-school silliness.
I know political operatives may be good and fast, but nobody can collect and make 65 people agree on something, redact it and have it out in less than 24 hours. My take? The Republicans knew about the accusation and prepared the response to embarrass the living daylights out of the Democrats. And on a Friday afternoon, knowing it will make every political talk show in the weekend.
I would say they succeeded.
