Kavanaugh’s story is a Jekyll and Hyde story, but one that doesn’t require a strange chemical serum to explain it. It’s a psychological--maybe even a neurological--“story.” 1/9
Kavanaugh says he is mystified and even outraged by the allegations against him, and to some extent--but only to some extent--we must acknowledge that this is indeed the way it all seems to him. 2/9
In his interviews, #Kavanaugh comes across as someone who sees himself as a thoroughly decent (though not perfect) human being. And importantly, THAT IS HOW EVERYONE WHO HAS ONLY SEEN HIM SOBER SEES HIM. Call this person BK1. 3/9
But many, many people who have seen him under the influence of alcohol have seen a very DIFFERENT Brett #Kavanaugh. Their impressions and accounts cannot be discounted either. Call this person BK2. 4/9
Kavanaugh can’t have been 100% truthful (either to himself or to investigators) when he has *categorically* denied that he has a serious drinking problem. 5/9
BK1 and BK2 are NOT different, wholly disconnected beings, and #Kavanaugh must be aware of that. He MUST have memories leading up to and after the events, and it is his lack of full disclosure about that which disqualifies him. 6/9
Kavanaugh has a self-image that must be deeply threatened by what he is like when he drinks. It is a part of himself that he has denied and repressed. And getting to the bottom of it all requires a psychological--not a congressional or legal or FBI inquiry. 7/9
What we know about Kavanaugh is enough to disqualify him. He needs psychological counseling, and if he gets it, probably does not deserve to be removed from the DC Circuit Court of Appeals--BUT 8/9
Until we--and Brett #Kavanaugh himself--have sorted all this out, he certainly doesn’t merit a lifelong appointment as Associate Justice of SCOTUS. 9/9
PS1/ It is well-known and widely accepted that women who are traumatized can have repressed and “forgotten” memories. No doubt a similar phenomenon can happen with men like #Kavanaugh, who deny and repress parts of themselves (and events) that are too threatening for them.
